Tip #2

Use good judgment

If your scalp is becomes irritated from the clips of your clip in hair extensions after several days of wearing them it may be a sign that you should attach your clip in hair extensions differently or give them a break for a few days. Inspect your hair regularly to be sure your hair isn’t breaking off at the site where you attach your extensions and avoid sleeping in them if possible. Make the health of your hair a top priority. Clip in hair extensions are meant to be a fun and easy way to enhance the length or volume of your hair. When you take care of your hair you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of wearing your extensions and the beauty as well as the health of your own hair.

Tip #3

Take good care of your own hair

Remove the clip in extensions and wash and condition your own hair on a consistent basis to infuse your hair with moisture and keep it clean. Use oil treatments, leave in conditioners, protein treatments and other products to give the strands of your hair additional strength and to replace the natural oils and other essential nutrients lost during the shampooing process. Keep the usage of hair dryers, flat irons, curling irons and other heated hair styling tools to a minimum to prevent breakage and heat related damage to your hair. If your hair is chemically treated take extra steps to keep your hair well moisturized so that it stays soft and doesn’t become dry hard and brittle. Individuals with color treated and relaxed hair should take especially good care of their hair because their hair is generally made weaker as the result of chemical treatments.
