Before you begin to apply clip in hair extensions, you will need to be organized and have any hair tools and products that you require. Clear some space next to where you will be working and have ready some large clips to hold up your hair, a wide-tooth comb for the extensions, and a rat-tail comb for helping to part your hair into sections. You may also wish to have some hair spray handy and any other hair styling products you may need as well as a hair straightener or a curling iron.
Before you start ensure that your extensions are clean and gently comb through each piece one at a time with a wide-tooth comb to remove any tangles and any loose hair. Also practice opening and closing the clips on the cheap hair extensions so it will be easy to do when you are working behind your head as you may not be able to see them later on. Now that you have prepared your clip in hair extensions, you will now need to prepare your own hair.
After making sure your clip in extensions work, prepare your own hair to make sure that your real hair and the extensions will blend well together. Comb through the tangles on your hair, and make sure that your hair is clean before you apply clip in hair extensions. Apply clip in extensions starting from the bottom part of your scalp and work your way going upwards. Make a straight line using a rat-tail comb and clip all the hair above this line to keep them out of the way. If your hair is too smooth that the clip can’t hold onto the air, you can tease the hair below the line you created to give it some friction.
To apply clip in hair extensions, open all the clips on the piece and using the middle clip first, slide onto the root of the hair below the line that you made. Press down the sides of the clip to secure the human hair extensions. Then repeat the procedure with the outer clips. Follow the straight line and do not apply clip in extensions above this line. Once the first piece is fastened, make another straight line about one inch on top of the first line. Again, tie up all the hair above the new line and do the same steps as above.
