Dos and Don’ts You Need to Know about Clip-In Extensions

Dos and Don’ts You Need to Know about Clip-In Extensions

Hair extensions are a trend that don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Unlike other hair styling trends, they actually appear to be gaining in popularity, largely due to the added versatility and affordability that these hair accessories can offer. Before you run out and purchase the first clip-in hair extensions that you can find, there are several things that you need to know in order to ensure you are getting the best in extensions for your investment.

Our list of 6 dos and 4 don’ts will help you to make the best decision when it comes to investing in your clip-in extensions.


Do take the time to research clip in hair extensions

Be sure that you take the time to research the options that you have for clip-in extensions. Do you want synthetic or human hair extensions? Look into the various options for human hair, and also consider whether you’d be best-suited to get extensions that match the colour of your hair or those that’ll allow for highlights or something entirely different.


Do be sure you get professional input

One of the best ways to learn about what type of extensions are best for you is to have a chat with your personal hairstylist. They will likely know your hair and your hair type better than you do and will know about the options that will be best suited for your hair goals.


Do try them out for special occasions

Hair extensions allow you to get that dreamy hairstyle that you’ve always wanted to try out, but perhaps couldn’t because you didn’t have the volume or the length that you needed for it. Extensions will allow you to get a red-carpet hairstyle in no time at all.


Do brush your extensions frequently

Extensions should be kept as tangle-free as possible. This will help to keep them from becoming damaged. Brush them out before wearing them, brush them out when you remove them at the end of the day, and generally ensure that they are tangle-free. Secure the extensions with one hand when you are detangling, in order to avoid putting excess pressure or tension on the extensions. After brushing, run some serum through the hair to keep it silky smooth.


Do use silicone-free and recommended shampoos

There are a number of really good quality shampoos and other haircare products designed specifically for use on hair extensions. Stick to these types of products so that you can ensure your extensions get the right type of care, to keep them in good shape for much longer. Also use a quality conditioner, leaving it in for up to 5 minutes before rinsing and combing through.


Do allow extensions to dry thoroughly

It’s important to allow your extensions to dry completely before you put them away or before you wear them or brush them. Combing extensions when they are still damp can lead to stretching and breakage. Air drying for a bit, until they’re completely dry, will help your extensions last.


Don’t use hair extensions if you’re losing hair

While clip-in extensions can be a great solution to give you a volume or length boost, they shouldn’t be used if you are still actively losing hair. You just may find that even the best clip-ins can result in more breakage and more hair loss if you’re struggling with conditions like alopecia. If you’re unsure, check with your hairstylist who will be able to give you the best recommendations for your hair type.


Don’t wash your hair with extensions in

While it’s not a complete no-no, it is recommended that you take your clip-in extensions out before washing your hair. It can result in too much pulling pressure on your real hair and lead to damage.


Don’t try to colour your extensions without help

It’s definitely possible to use darker dyes on some types of human hair extensions. However, it’s recommended that you reach out to your professional hairstylist for help with colouring so that you can be assured it’s done properly. At-home dyes can cause irreparable damage on hair extensions, so it’s best to use a gentle salon formula to take your clip-ins 2 - 3 shades darker, and never lighter.

Don’t skip a test run before a big event

Clip-in extensions can help you to achieve that beautiful look on your wedding day or some other special event. However, you should test out your extensions and your look prior to your big day. This will help to ensure that they feel comfortable and that they can help you to get the perfect look for your perfect day.

Hair extensions are a great way for you to add volume and length when you’re looking for a refreshed look. Be sure to always follow the manufacturers care instructions so that you’re assured of the perfect look, from extensions that always look and feel their very best.
