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

Sometimes blending hair to wear it down is a hassle. In that case, you can always go to the classic ponytails and buns. Brush your real hair right over the extensions, apply your hair product of choice, and whip it into a ponytail or bun.

You can play with it and make it cute by braiding the perimeter of your hair into a crown, give yourself a middle part and doing a sleek low bun, or anything else your hair allows.

My favorite style to do with my kinky curly clip ins is parting my hair down the middle and braiding back my hair on either side, then pinning it down. It takes less than 10 minutes to perfect and can be worn anywhere from the gym to a party.

Curl Definition Products

Simply applying products that define your curls comes in handy when your hair matches the curl pattern of your extensions, but one curl is just more defined.

In this case, the best way to blend your hair is to section it off, spritz it with water, apply a cream based moisturizer, and then smooth a light oil through your hair.


Not only with this define your curls, but it’ll lock in moisture and allow your hair to stay nicely blended all day. If you need to touch up your hair, simply spritz it with water and finger comb through it.

If you have a problem keeping it blended, try doing a wash and go with max-hold gel so that your hair will stay down a little longer than if you were to just apply a moisturizer.

Try Bobby Pins and Headbands

Bobby pins and headbands come in handy when your hair is too short too blend–especially if you’re wearing a weave and have some hair left out.

The first thing you need to do is achieve a perfectly matched curl. This is always going to be important, no matter what method you decide to use.

After you’ve formed the right curl, take the end of your hair and gently tuck it between your extensions. Then, with the ridged side down, slide the bobby pin in between the extensions and secure the bottom of your real hair.

The bobby pin should be secure, but not visible or noticeably tugging or disguising anything. If you are afraid that the bobby pin will show, make sure you slide it as close to the root of your hair as possible.

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.
