I agree with Miss Charmise when it comes to making clip in extensions rather than purchasing the hair. I personally love clip ins over a full weave because I need to feel my scalp so if I was supposed to do any weave at all, clip ins would be my preference. In the video below you will see how Miss Charmise, colors the hair, installs the clips and adds her new creations to her own head of hair
There are a couple of benefits to making your own clip-ins:
1. Custom fit – Making your own clip ins means a completely customizable look for your head, your hair, your length or whatever it is you prefer. Just purchase the wefts and get creative
2. Color – You can color the hair as much as you would like without worrying about your initial investment. The thing is, to get really great clip in extensions, you will pay an exorbitant amount for the convenience of the style as well as the hair. This means if you want to make them purple if you want and not feel guilty
3. Easy to make – It is so easy to make clip in’s its almost ridiculous that we ever buy them in the first place. You will see from the video and many other videos on YouTube just how easy you can create a fly summer style with just a few extensions.
Taking care of your extensions
If you have human hair extensions, you will have to treat it like you would your own hair. We would suggest co washing the curls to keep them moisturized, when you refresh your own curls, refresh the extensions as well. Keep the hair clean by using shampoo and use conditioner to soften it just like you would your own hair.
If you use color as shown in the video, keep the curls hydrated as much as you can because bleach can be very drying as you already know. Check out the video demonstration below if you want to make some clip ins for the summer:
