There are certain occasions when you want your hair to look a little extra special, from weddings and birthdays to holidays and other celebrations. Whatever the occasion, you can enhance your natural tresses with the help of some handy hair extensions.
Hair extensions are growing increasingly popular and can be seen on Hollywood red carpets as well as the high street.
Getting hair extensions doesn't mean you have to spend lots of time and money having them professionally glued or sewn in; temporary clip in extensions are a great alternative and one of the easiest ways to add volume and length to your hair.
Clip in hair extensions are an inexpensive and effective way to change your overall look. Whether you want straight and shiny, long and lustrous or cute and curly, clip in hair extensions can help you to achieve that look.
You can buy full head hair extensions or smaller sections that can simply be clipped in wherever you need them. Clip in hair extensions can be bought in different lengths and breadths to suit your individual requirements.
Clip in hair extensions are attached underneath your natural hair so there is no way of telling that you are wearing them. There are several colour choices to select from as well so you can find the perfect match for your specific hair shade.
Look out for clip in extensions made from human hair as they look most natural and can be curled, washed, straightened and dyed to suit.
Clip in hair extensions are easy to attach and remove. Imagine a "u" shape around your head and move your fingers from the front towards the back until they meet in the centre. Part your hair and this is where you should insert the clip in extensions. A handy tip is to always follow the contour of your head and remember to insert the extensions beneath your natural hair so they can't be spotted.
It is important to get a neat parting as you don't want any loose hairs to get caught in the extensions - this can cause discomfort and could loosen the extensions.
Remember to you place the clips on the hair below the parting as this is how your hair would lie naturally.
Clip in extensions are usually just snapped shut after you have positioned them in place and can be removed by gently pulling backwards until you hear the clip release.
Caring for clip in extensions couldn't be easier. They can be washed with shampoo every four to five uses. Comb gently with a wide tooth comb before washing so you get rid of any knots or tangles.
As you would with your natural hair, use tepid water and wash gently. A moisturising or detangling shampoo helps to care for your extensions even more.
To prevent damage and prolong the life of your clip in hair extensions, do not brush or comb them when wet and its best to let them air dry after washing.
