Common Questions About Clip In Hair Extensions Part One

Hair extensions have severely gained popularity during the last few years, especially because of the recent celebrity trend of having them applied. They have actually been around since the 1980’s even though during the 1980’s many people dismissed them as a fad that would never catch on and now they have come back and they have never been more popular.

If you are hoping to have hair extensions applied it should be noted that there are many different ways in which this can be done. Some of the most popular ways involve bonding or gluing the extensions to your natural hair; however if you are looking for a more temporary length or volume then clip in hair extensions may be more suitable to you. Clip in hair extensions are a form of hair extensions that provide you with instant long or full hair as well as a way of adding aspects of colour to your natural hair.

Clip in hair extensions provide you with a temporary solution to get longer hair whilst you are waiting for your natural hair to grow. They are cheaper than going to a salon to have extensions applied via other methods of application.

Clip in hair extensions can generally be treated the same way as normal hair extensions in the sense you can cut and style them as you please however there are certain things that you can and cannot do to your hair extensions. Below are examples of some of the commonly asked questions that surround the application of clip in hair extensions.

Will they damage my hair? – The simple answer to this question is no, as long as you apply and remove the extensions correctly you will not damage your natural hair. They should be clipped to your hair below the ear line so they are hidden by your hair and they should be clipped in so they are evenly spread out across your head.

Can I keep using them? – You can re-use your clip in extensions as much as you want as long as you take care of them. Clip in extensions often last a lot longer than normal extensions as they are easier to care for than hair extensions which are glued or bonded to your hair.

Can I keep my extensions in over night? – It is highly advised that you don’t keep your extensions in over night as it is considered not safe to sleep in them.

Can I cut my clip in hair extensions? – You are able to cut and style your clip in hair extensions into any style that you want to suit your natural hair and to blend them in better; however if you are planning to cut your extensions it is a good idea to ask your hair dresser to do it for you as cutting your hair extensions requires the same amount of skill that is needed to cut your natural hair.

Will my Scalp be able to breath? – Like hair extensions that are glued or bonded to your hair, your clip in hair extensions will be fitted close to your hairs roots/scalp. They should be attached in a way so that they do not block your roots or scalp so that you can feel and touch your scalp as normal.
