Clip in hair extensions are fast becoming a staple item in the fashion savvy woman’s closet. Not only are they now more readily available then previously, but with higher competition, they are also of better quality. There are still a few things to keep in mind though when purchasing a new set of clip in hair extensions for yourself.
What are they made of? Hair extensions can be made of either human hair or synthetic hair. Synthetic hair, while it costs less and does feel lighter in your hair, can be damaged easily due to styling, heat or the sun. It also has a tendency to not blend subtly with your own hair, which makes it more noticeable. Human hair however, blends well and can be styled easily and put through the same conditions that you would put your own hair through, such as curling or straightening with a hot iron. A good set, if well maintained, should last you up to two years.
The beauty of clip in hair extensions is that you can put them in yourself, as opposed to other options that require the hair extensions to be semi-permanently attached to your existing hair by a professional hairdresser. Once you get the hang of putting them in yourself, it should only take five to ten minutes, which can make them one of the quickest and easiest fashion accessories you own.
Clip in hair extensions can be used to add extra length to your existing hair. They can also be used to gain extra volume, not just for wearing your hair down but also for up-styles that require extra volume for effect. Even the simple ponytail can be improved with the added volume attained from using clip in hair extensions.
Clip in human hair extensions are easy to care for which also adds to their appeal. As they are not normally worn every day and do not get a build up of oils and dirt from the scalp, like your actual hair, they require far less maintenance. Basically, when you notice that your extensions are looking a bit dull or if they start to have an unpleasant odour, then a simple wash in warm water with mild shampoo, is all your extensions should require. To help prolong the life of your clip in extensions though, it is advised to also condition them, as you would your own hair.
So if you’re looking for an easy alternative to gain added length and volume to your hair, then consider purchasing a set of clip in human hair extensions. Add a set your life today. They could just be your new favourite fashion accessory.
