Rat tail comb $2-$3
APPLYING CLIP IN HAIR EXTENSIONS (USING WEFTS)
Start by brushing through your own hair with a paddle brush to remove all tangles. Brush the bottom and work your way up to the scalp. Do this same procedure with each of your clip in hair extensions.
Using a rat tail comb or your finger, section off a one to two inch section in the nape. Use a hair clip to secure the rest of your hair away.
Take a weft of hair, placing as close to the roots as possible. Start with the center clip, and continue to clip the weft in towards both sides of the nape.
Slightly tug at the hair to make sure the weft is secured.
Take another one to two inch section of hair down, and clip the rest away.
Place another weft of hair near the scalp, and secure the clips.
Repeat steps 5-6 moving up the head. Make sure the secure the clips on both sides of the head as well.
APPLYING CLIP IN HAIR EXTENSIONS (USING SINGLE PIECES)
Repeat steps 1-2.
Take two single pieces and clip them near the scalp about two inches apart.
Bring down another 1 inch section, and clip the rest of the hair away.
Place another 2-3 pieces of hair extensions in the hair. Make sure prongs of clips are facing down when snapped shut.
Repeat steps 3-4, moving up the back of the head. Make sure to stay about two to three inches away from the top of the head so that the hair extensions do not become visible.
On both sides of the head, place your first extension one inch above the ear.
Continue up the side, bringing down one inch sections.
Place extensions about two inches apart from each other.
If your hair is freshly washed or feels slippery, you may want to tease or spray hairspray or dry shampoo near your scalp area to give the clips a little grip.
Make sure to be using real hair if you plan on using any heat, such as a curling iron or flat iron. When washing, take the clip ins out, and use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Lay extensions on a towel, and comb through with a wide tooth comb. Your extensions will last longer if you follow these guidelines.
