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!
