How to Choose the Perfect Amount of Clip In Hair Extensions for Your Hair

No matter what type of hair you have, whether curly, wavy or kinky, you can add length and volume to your locks within minutes with the help of hair extensions. Those with natural hair may be concerned about maintaining the health and integrity of their hair, since it tends to be the most sensitive type of hair.

Clip in hair extensions for African American hair make it easy and safe to achieve the length, style, and volume you want, while boosting your hair color without the damage from chemicals or hot tools. The key is knowing how to choose the perfect amount of clip in hair extensions for your hair, so the extensions blend seamlessly with your natural hair.


How Much Hair Do You Need?

The curly clip in extensions from Amazing Beauty Hair come in 120 grams per set, with seven double wefts and 16 clips total. One set is enough for a partial head of hair, to add length and some volume. You can choose from 10 inches to 22 inches in length. 120 grams offers the perfect balance of weight that works well for many hair types. It can work well for both finer hair and medium to thick hair.

Two sets of 120 grams makes a full head, and is the perfect amount if you’re going for maximum volume and length. We also recommend purchasing two sets if you have medium to thick hair and need the extra volume to blend seamlessly with your hair. Doing so will also ensure that the length from the extensions does not look too thin compared to your own thicker hair.

What is Your Hair Type and What Look Are You Going For?

The thickness of your own hair, along with the overall look you’re going for will help to determine how many sets of curly clip in hair extensions you need. Thicker hair will likely need two or more sets of the 120 grams of clip in extensions. This will ensure that the thickness of the extensions and added length will match your own hair and look natural. If you also want maximum length with our 20 or 22-inch extensions, two or more sets will give the length the volume it needs to blend seamlessly with the rest of your hair, and avoid looking too sparse. The longer you’d like your hair, the more extensions you’ll need to make the look come together.

Additionally, our straight hair extensions for natural hair have less density than curly styles and will require more sets to achieve a full, voluminous head of hair. Kinky and curly hair extensions are denser and create a full look without as many wefts.


If you have fine to thinning hair, one set of the 120 grams of clip in curly hair extensions is the perfect amount to blend with your hair, without looking too thin or adding too much weight.

With just one or two sets of our clip in hair extensions for curly and kinky hair, your hair can be completely transformed!


How to Blend Hair Extensions Seamlessly with Your Hair

Knowing how to properly apply your natural clip in hair extensions is the key to blending them seamlessly with your own hair. The curly and kinky clip in extensions from Amazing Beauty Hair come with seven wefts total at 120 grams of hair. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, and the look you’re trying to achieve, you may need all seven pieces or only some of them.


Begin at just above the nape of your neck, clipping away the rest of your hair, and choose the weft that matches the width of that section. That may be a three or four clip weft. Move up your head, using the weft with enough clips to match that section. You may also need to add a weft or two on the front sides of your head to add volume on either side of your face.
