What Does A Clip In Hair Extension Consist Of?

Clip-in extensions consist of three main components: wefts, clips, and base material.

  • Wefts are the sections of hair that are attached together at the top and are what you clip onto your natural hair.

  • Clips are small, sturdy mechanisms attached to the wefts that securely fasten the extensions in place.

  • The base material refers to the material to which the hair strands are attached, typically a flexible and breathable fabric that ensures comfort and durability.

How Does Clip In Extension Differ From Other Hair Extensions?

Learn the difference

There are different types of hair extensions based on the attachment method, permanence, and ease of application. Some offer a more permanent solution than others. Clip-in hair extensions, however, are a type of non-permanent hair extension that gives you the freedom to alter your hair at any given moment.

Let’s look at some of the parameters that separate it from the rest of the hair extensions out there.

Parameters Clip in Hair Extensions Other Hair Extensions

Attachment method

Clip-in extensions are attached to the natural hair using small, sturdy clips that snap open and closed. These clips grip onto sections of the natural hair, providing a secure hold without the need for adhesives, heat, or weaving.


Other types of extensions, such as tape-in, sew-in, and fusion extensions, use different attachment methods. Tape-in extensions are adhered to the natural hair using adhesive tapes. Sew-in extensions are woven into braided sections of the natural hair using a needle and thread. Fusion extensions are bonded to the natural hair using heat or adhesive


Clip-in extensions are non-permanent and can be easily applied and removed without professional assistance. They offer the flexibility to change hairstyles frequently and do not require a long-term commitment.

Other types of extensions typically offer more permanent results. Tape-in extensions may last several weeks before needing to be repositioned or replaced. Sew-in extensions can last for several weeks to months, depending on maintenance and hair growth. Fusion extensions can last several months before needing to be removed and reapplied.

Ease of Application and Removal

Clip-in hair extensions are known for their ease of application. They can be applied quickly and easily at home without the need for specialized tools or professional assistance. Clip-ins are ideal for individuals who want to change their hairstyle frequently or experiment with different looks.

You don’t require any special assistance or tools to take them off, either.

Other types of hair extensions, particularly sew-in and fusion extensions, usually require a professional application. These extensions involve specialized techniques and equipment. Professionals or experienced individuals may apply tape-in extensions, but they still require careful placement and maintenance.

Also, the removal process for these extensions requires professional help.

How To Choose The Right Clip in Hair Extension?

Choosing the right clip in hair extension

When it comes to choosing the right clip in hair extension there are several key points that need to be considered. This is necessary to match your natural hair to the extension seamlessly and style it however you desire.

Hair Color Match

Choosing the wrong hair color can totally change the way you look, making your extensions stand out from your natural hair and making your scalp visible (causing unnatural-looking hair, which we definitely don't want to happen).

The color of your clip in human hair extensions for black women should be a close match with your natural hair. You can go for a shade lighter or darker to mix things up a bit.

You can opt for cool or down undertones that match your scalp to have a more seamless blend.

Texture Match

Whether you have curly, wavy, straight or kinky hair, find clip in hair extensions that are a perfect match for your hair texture. The kind of thickness and density that you want will highly depend on what your extensions will offer. Choose a texture that’s a close match if you do not find an exact match.

You can choose from our many different types of textures that will match with all of you. We have kinky clip in extensions to straight clip in extensions, whatever you need is!

Length & Weight Of Clip in Hair Extension

You got to choose clip in hair extensions that match the length and weight of your hair to have a smooth, blendable and comfortable match. If you have medium-length hair, you can go for something a little longer and still be able to blend the extensions perfectly. The trick is to use multiple wefts of different sizes all around your head.

Quality Hair Extension

Investing in a good quality hair extension solves most of your problems in a go. It is so because choosing the right hair extension that doesn’t compromise its quality will give you more natural-looking extensions that will be hard to tell apart from your own hair.

A good quality extension is made from 100% human hair that will move and feel like real hair and will give you the flexibility to style and shine like your own hair. You can also dye it color match with your hair which is not quite possible with synthetic hair extensions.

That’s why Indique clip in hair extensions are made from 100% human hair that can be dyed and heat styled just like your own hair.

How To Care And Maintain Clip In Hair Extensions?

Care and maintenance of your clip in extensions

Since you have worked so hard to get yourself a pair of clip in hair extensions by carefully selecting them and matching them with your hair and spending a reasonably handsome amount on them (well, clip in human hair extensions doesn’t come cheap and we know the price we paid for them!) its only right that you care and maintain them with all the love you know. This will help you in keeping it in good shape and condition and will add some extra time to it.

Here’s what you need to know to get things right!

  • Handle them gently and carefully so as to prevent all the tangling and matting.

  • Gently brush the clip in extensions using a paddle brush, and do so from bottom to top.

  • When you have to detangle them use a wide-toothed comb or you can also use a special loop brush.

  • Always use a mild shampoo that is sulfate-free to wash your clip in extensions. You can wash them in a basin filled with lukewarm water. Avoid rubbing and twisting as it can cause tangling and mating. Gently squeeze the water out.

  • After shampooing, use a moisturizing conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair extension. Avoid the wefts and clips as the hair can come loose from them. Leave the conditioner for some time and rinse with cold water.

  • Allow the clip in hair extensions to air-dry after you have washed and conditioned them. Avoid using any heat-styling tools or blow-dryers to dry the hair extensions as it can damage the hair fibers and can make them brittle and dry.

  • When taking them off, store them in a box that’s away from the dust and direct sunlight. Store them in a cool dry place.

  • Never sleep with your clip in extension on. Always take them out before going to bed. Sleeping with them can cause tangling and matting of the hair which might be irreparable and cause permanent damage to the extensions.

  • When you want to amp up your style and want to change how your clip-ins look, always use a heat protectant before using heat tools. This will protect them from excessive heat from the tools and save their sheen.

  • Summer is a great time to dive into that pool, but don’t do it with your clip in extensions on. Before going in, take them off as the chlorine in the pool and salt in the sea can damage the hair by making them dry and brittle.

  • And lastly, take them out for regular maintenance to your hairdresser to get the ends trimmed and to prevent split ends. While you are there, you can get them repositioned or replace any loose or broken clips.

Following these tips will make them last longer and will give you beautiful shiny clip in extensions that will only enhance your beauty and give you more wonderful days with it.
