Review of Amazing Beauty Kinky Curly Clip-Ins

BLOG

I have been on the road a lot the past few weeks, so this means that my hair situation hasn’t always been great. I had to do something to my hair once I took down my braids. My hair braider back home is the only one I can trust with my hair, so being away from home meant that I had to take matters into my own hands, so to speak.

The only problem was my extremely short hair. I can’t do a lot with my hair because of the length, but I really needed some form of protective styling because it was winter and my natural hair was at risk of suffering because of my lack of styling abilities. Clip-ins sounded like my best bet.

 

My First Impressions of Amazing Beauty Kinky Curly Clip-In

I got a pack of Amazing Beauty kinky curly clip-ins. It came in a pretty box that had extra clips and a wide tooth comb. I obviously needed more than a pack of hair for my whole (big) head but I had to find a way to make do.

The instruction leaflet in the box said to prewash the hair, and prewash I did! I co-washed it and combed it out with the comb it came with. There was some shedding at this point, but it was too little for me to be bothered. The kinky texture simply popped when I co-washed it. I air-dried it overnight and it was ready for use the next day. I have 4C hair, and I can say that the softness of this clip-ins matched my natural hair even though it was a slightly different curl pattern from my natural hair.

Installing My Clip-Ins

Like I said before, the major problem was using the 20” clip-in on my short natural hair. First, I had to choose a simple style because my hair isn’t long enough for a lot of styles. Also, I had to employ a few tips and tricks to ensure that the one pack of hair would be enough for the style I had in mind.

I applied my leave-in conditioner to the clip-in and combed it out, which fluffed it up and made it appear fuller. This way I could use it without having people notice the wefts underneath.

Clip-In Ponytail on Short Natural Hair

I sectioned my hair into two halves with a line running from ear to ear. The back section was divided into five (scraggly) cornrows. The goal was to protect my hair from the cold, so I had to hide my hair before installing the clip-in.

Using a medium-hold hair gel, I sleeked the front section into pigtails.

I clipped in the hair extensions in place according to length. The shorter wefts went to the back section (cornrows) while the longer ones took up space close to the front.

 

This whole process of braiding took about 15 minutes. Not too shabby for someone who can’t really style hair.

Finally done! Absolutely beautiful!

I posted these pictures on social media and so far, the response has been amazing. Everyone is either wondering when I grew out my hair or where I got such gorgeous hair from.

Impressions

One pack is not enough for my whole head, hence, the slicked-back style.

I unclip the hair at bedtime to preserve it because I’m obsessed with making it last.

The clips are so tiny it that I feel like they’ll break when I snap them in place.

I combed the hair when it was dry and the curls started to disappear, but the curls came back in full force when I combed it under running water.
