5 Tips To Effortlessly Blending Your Hair With Kinky-Curly Extensions

kinkycurly

Kinky-curly extensions were created so that natural women had hair that actually matched the curl pattern and texture of what was growing out of their scalp. For the most part, kinky-curly is very easy to blend considering that there are many different textures to match your hair.

However, sometimes we need a little extra work to get the curls blended so that we can have the most realistic looking hair possible. I used to struggle with this issue a lot, but since then I’ve learned a few tips and tricks that help me flawlessly blend my hair with my extensions.

Below are 5 tips to help you effortlessly blend your hair with kinky-curly extensions!

Use Perm and Flexi Rods

Depending on the size, length, and type of curl, perm and flexi rods are perfect for blending your natural hair with kinky curly extensions.

To get the closest match, you’ll need to determine what kind of curl the extensions hold. Are they loose or tight? Big or small? More wavy or like coils? This part is really important because sure, your leave out will be curled–but it’ll be a completely different curl than your extensions.


Make sure you know exactly what type of curl it is, and then pick the right styling tool. Usually, perm rod curls blend better with tight curls while flexi rods help to blend with looser curls.

Curl Extensions and Your Real Hair At The Same Time

The mistake that a lot of women make is that they curl their hair separate from the extensions and try to blend it later. It’ll be the same curl, but you can usually tell where your hair ends and the extensions start.

To eliminate this problem, take a piece of your hair and a piece of the extensions, combine them together, and then wrap them around your styling tool.

By the time you take the hair out of the perm/flexi rod or off the curling wand, it’ll look like one uniform curl.

If you are uncomfortable with perm/flexi rods, rollers, or a curling wand, try bantu knots, twist and braid outs; these methods will also work perfectly fine.

If you’re worried about your hair being too short to blend with this method, try doing a rod set while your hair is damp or wet; there’s a better chance of it blending better this way because it’ll have time to dry and set together.
