Clip-ins are a girl’s best friend! You can achieve any color, length and style with clip-ins. They are great because you can slay during the day and take them out at night and give yourself a scalp massage. Clip-ins are the simplest and least committal extensions on the market, but that can also cause people to become a bit lax when it comes to the rules of clip-ins. Allow us to set some ground rules to help your clip-ins last as long as possible.
It’s the end of the night, and just like you don’t feel like taking off your makeup, you also can’t find the energy to take out your clip-ins. We’ve all been there, but next morning’s hair situation can be more than disastrous! Leaving your clip-ins in overnight can lead to some major tangling and matting which can seriously shorten the lifespan of your favorite extensions. Instead, pick yourself up, wipe off your makeup, take out those clip-ins and put them away safely. Your future self will thank you for it!
Washing your extensions seems simple enough but so many of us don’t realize what kind of hair care routine clip-in extensions really need. If you are wearing your them every day, they will need to be washed once a week. If you only wear them for specific occasions, you only need to wash them about every 3-5 wears or so. Depending on how much product you put in your hair and on your extensions, it is best to wash out the product once you take the clip-ins out. Washing your clip-ins is important as it cleanses the hair of any products you may have used and restores it to its natural texture. After a good wash, your clip-ins will be ready to help you achieve any style!
It’s easy to think that because extensions come from someone else or someplace else that they don’t need the same special care and treatment you provide your own hair with but that’s simply not true, especially when it comes to human hair extensions. Avoid these mistakes and you’ll be able to wear them for a minimum of 1 year!
