Here’s My Go-To Hair Care Routine For Kinky Curly Clip Ins and Weave

In my opinion, hair extensions that match your natural texture are the best because you don’t have to manipulate your hair to match a different texture, it looks realistic, and it’s a great way to see what certain styles might look like on your hair without ever having to touch your actual hair.

Kinky curly clip ins and weaves have all of those benefits and some, but like everything else, there is a set of haircare dos and donts for these types of extensions. I know it’s very tempting to just throw it in, blend, and go, but it’s going to take a little bit more effort than that if you want to keep your hair looking good for the long run!



Below is my personal go-to hair care routine for kinky curly clip ins and weaves!

Before Installation 

Properly prepping your hair before starting any type of style is the key to keeping it healthy and making sure the style comes out how you want it. The process for clip ins and weave are pretty much the same: wash, moisturize, seal, and dry thoroughly.

If you are going to get a weave, make sure your braids and scalp are moisturized and oiled down before laying down a net and/or hair wefts.

For clip ins, simply section of your hair after it is defined, dried, and/or stretched. This will make positioning the clip ins much easier and faster.

I personally do not install and style my hair for 1 to 2 days after washing it because my braids and clips will easily slide out of freshly washed hair.

Products I Use: Pureology Hydrate Shampoo, Renpure Vanilla Mint Cleansing Conditioner, One N Only Argan Oil Dry Scalp Treatment

About Patrice Lechelle


Hi! My name is Patrice Lechelle, I'm a college student born and raised in Northern California, and I just recently started embracing my love for talking about all things fashion and beauty, especially hair. Throughout the years, I've tried my best to have a hand in both performance and visual arts, but creative and journalistic writing have always held the key to my heart. My hair became the unlikely teller of my story once I realized that every up and down in my life could be seen through my locs. From hard times leading to short cuts to purple hair ushering in my rebellious streak, my hair said it ALL. My goal is to use my knowledge and experiences to give my fellow Black women the best help, tips, and encouragement I can offer.
