However, before buying any extensions, it’s good to know what you will be getting yourself into. You should know everything there is to know about Remy Hair extensions. In this article, we will discuss the 5 things that you should know about clip in hair extensions before plunging in the hair world.
5 Things You Should Know About Clip in Hair Extensions
1. Minimal Strain on Your Hair Follicle
Clip-in hair extensions are gentle on your hair. They also don’t put a lot of pressure on your natural hair like the other types of extensions. This means that your hair will have the chance to grow normally. Also, you will get the freedom to change your look anytime you want. There are a few ways to clip the hair to your hair to avoid a lot of tension. Some stylists recommend using hair spray to add the roots to add more texture for the clips to adhere to. Another recommendation is to make a small braid where you would like to clip the hair.
2. You Need to Brush Them Regularly
You should ensure that you keep your hair extensions tangle-free by brushing them more often. Brush your extensions before you wear them and after removing them at the end of the day to ensure they don’t get tangled. After brushing, apply some serum on the extensions to keep them silky smooth. Depending on the hair texture you select, you may have wet the hair before brushing. For example, our Bounce Organic Curl and Coil Curl clip-ins should be damp before brushing to avoid hair breakage. Our silkier textures are okay to brush without using a spray bottle.
3. Avoid if You Have Hair Breakage
You can use clip-in hair extensions if you want to achieve that celebrity look. However, they shouldn’t be used if you are experience hair breakage. Even though clip in hair extensions are perfect to use, you might find that at times they contribute to more hair breakage especially if you are suffering from hair conditions like alopecia. If you aren’t sure of the kind of extension to use, talk to your hairstylist, who will advise you on what you should use for your hair type. There are other protective styles to use instead of clip-ins like a closure-top wig. This will allow your hair to breathe.
4. They Come in Different Shades
Remy hair extensions come in different shades. When looking for an extension that gives you a natural look, ensure that you choose one that is darker in color.
If you find that it is darker than your hair you can always bleach it into a lighter shade. It’s good to choose an extension that matches the natural color of your hair. If you are in a hurry, you can air dry it and be on the go.
5. You Can Take Them Out Anytime
You can take out your clip in hair extensions anytime you want to give your hair a break in between when wearing them. This means that you can put on hair masks and treatments and reduce the strain that extensions can put on your hair. We highly recommend removing your clip-ins at night. Sleeping in the clip-ins can cause damage to your hair. If you would like to remember the track placement, use the braid technique and clip the braids in at night so in the morning you remember where they were clipped to.
