Seek professional help. Getting a professional hair stylist to custom cut your hair extensions will give them the most natural and seamless look. Of course, not all professional stylists know how to cut hair extensions, so make sure you find one that has experience with hair extensions. Otherwise, they can come out looking choppy and uneven, especially because they clip-in, you tend to clip them in slightly different every times, so cutting them to blend well is important. Having your hair extensions tailored for you is a must. It’s most obvious that you are wearing hair extensions when you take the them out of the pack and just put it in. You need to have it styled so that it looks natural, lived-in and authentic, a professional hairstylist can help you with this if you can’t do it yourself.

Buy the best quality hair extensions. Always buy Remy human hair extensions. There’s nothing worse than bad quality hair extensions, they don’t last very long, get really matted while you are wearing them, and if you buy synthetic it ALWAYS looks fake. So read reviews, and do your research on purchasing some high quality Remy hair extensions. They will look more natural, and improve the look and feel when blended with your own natural hair.

Don’t sleep with your hair extensions. This isn’t possible to do with the more permanent versions of hair extensions, but it’s certainly one of the reasons why clip in hair extensions are less damaging and better for your hair. Giving your scalp a break from the weight and pull of hair extensions is so important for saving your natural hair from any damage. So, as tempting as it might be on a late night, included removal of your clip-in extensions in your before-bed routine.

Loosen up. If you clip in your extensions too tight, beware. You can get long-term damage or hair loss from putting the more permanent versions of hair extensions in too tight, and then same applies for clip ins. You should barely feel them clipped in, so we suggest clipping them in as loosely as possible. You shouldn’t feel any pulling or discomfort.

Give your natural hair a TLC. This is easier to do with clip in hair extensions, since you can unclip them easily and don’t need to wear them all the time. Hair extensions can easily be replaced, and of course aren’t indestructible, but if you are going to do damage, do it to your hair extensions, not your real hair. Curl or straighten your extensions before clipping them in to save your hair from extra heat damage. And don’t forget to baby your own hair by using deep conditioning treatments to help care for and soften strands.
