Clip on hair extensions are becoming increasingly popular with young ladies who do not want to wait to get their desired hairstyle. All you need to do is to wherever you want to give extra body and lift to your hair. Use hair extensions made from virgin human hair to give your hair that near-natural look.
popularity of lies in the fact that they are cheap and easy to install and even
easier to remove. Unlike permanent hair extensions such as heat fusion
extensions that have to be done in salons and cost a lot, clip on hair
extensions are easy to install and you can do it at home.
Most women can on their own without any external help. However, most of them face a problem of extensions getting detached from the hair or sticking out from underneath. This can be easily solved if you do it the right way.
You need three things to : a small tooth comb, good quality hairspray, and of course, some clip on hair extensions.
Part the section of hair just like you do to create a high ponytail except that in this case, you leave a small section at the base.
Pile the section on the crown of your head and put a clip on it so that it does not get in the way.
Tease and backcomb hair roots with the small tooth comb and apply hairspray.
Open the clip on accessory and start by clipping the right clip on to the fuzzy roots of your natural hair, then move on to the left clip, and finally, the middle clip.
Undo the section of ponytail and create another high ponytail section. Leave another section of hair at the base, making sure that it is just an inch above the section you just worked on. This is to ensure that this layer of natural hair falls just over the clip on hair extension you just installed.
Repeat the steps for as many clip on extensions that you want to add, taking care that you leave the thin section of hair to cover the previous extensions.
When you have to work on the sides, take a small section of hair about three inches above the ear and clip on the extension.
hairspray makes the hair a bit firmer, which ensures that the
do not detach easily.
The best way to style your hair after installing is to use a curling iron. This will give a flawless look to your locks as it helps to blend your natural hair with the extensions.
It is imperative that you do not brush your hair from the roots because this can potentially move the extensions. Also, make sure that you tease, backcomb and hairspray only that section of your hair where you wish to place the hair extensions.
