A few weeks ago my older sister gave me some kinky* curly hair extensions* that were a bit too loose of a curl for her tight coils, and she figured they would be a perfect match for me, and she was right!
I’ve worn them ever since, and I’m also thinking about ordering another bundle because I love them so much.
Just like my natural hair, I had to wash the clip ins after one week of use, because they started to get a lot of product build up, and the curls looked a bit dull. Here’s the regimen I used:
1. Finger Detangle
After taking out all of the clip ins*, the curls were a bit tangled. I try to be as gentle as possible, to limit shedding, so I finger detangled the clip-ins and achieved minimal shedding.
2. Fill Sink
I find it easier to wash my clip-ins in the sink versus the tub, but either works. I start by filling the sink less than half way and stopping it up. I then completely submerge the hair in the water to ensure that every strand is soaked.
3. Shampoo and Condition
After draining the sink, I let the water run while I lather up the hair with shampoo and rinse out. After rinsing, I then apply my favorite leave in condition to the hair.
4. Hang to Dry
I use clothes hangers or clothes pins to hang the hair on the bathroom shower rod to let dry. You could also lay the hair on a flat surface, or over the side of the tub.
5. Install Wet
Being that these are natural hair textured clip ins*, and it’s currently hot outside, I’ve been rocking my wash n go. The clip ins should match your natural curl pattern, so you could even skip the drying step and install the clip ins completely damp, and style your wash n go as usual.
I love my natural hair clip ins, and washing them is super easy!
