    What Pattern Are Cliphair Curly Hair Extensions?

    Our curly clip ins can be fitted on 2C and 3A curl patterns ensuring a seamless blend. Using a wave comb, you can gently open up the curls for a better match depending on your hair type!

    Can I Get Hair Extensions If My Hair Is Curly?

    Yes, whether your hair is naturally curly or permed, you ca use curly hair extensions to pump up the volume, thickness, and length in your tresses whenever you feel like it. As long as your curl pattern matched the hair extensions, you can use them to create so many different looks, experimenting with various aesthetics and making the most of your hair!

    How Long Do Curly Hair Extensions Last?

    Generally speaking, curly hair extensions last as long as the rest of our clip in hair extensions collection. Given that you take proper care of them, their gorgeous curly pattern and Remy human hair fibres will last around 6-8 months, depending on how often you wear them, how and where you store them, your lifestyle, the amount of styling they undergo, and what products you use to wash them, dry them, and style them.

    How to Install and Style Your Curly Hair Extensions

    Ready to transform your look? Clip in curly hair extensions are easy to install and can be fitted in your hair in the comfort of your own home. Just like any other regular clip in, all you need to do is section your hair horizontally, starting from the bottom and then working your way up. Make sure you use sectioning clips and a pintail comb for a more precise application. Avoid applying your clip in hair extensions on the “Red Zone” to prevent any seams from showing, and you’re all done!

    How to Care for and Maintain Your Curly Hair Extensions

    Just like any other type of hair extensions, curly hair extensions need some good old TLC every now and then. We recommend washing your clip ins every 10-15 wears, depending on their state. Curly naturally struggle in retaining moisture, therefore you will need to make sure that your curly clip ins get all the hydration they can. You can do so by keeping them soft and moisturised with the Moisturising Silky Spray by Cliphair, but knowing the right products when it comes to washing is also an essential. For the best results, we have developed a highly moisturising trio of hair washing products, to make your hair washing day a luxurious experience that can revive your curls at every wash.

    How To Wash Curly Hair Extensions

    Washing your curly hair extensions kind of works in the same way as you would wash any other type of clip in hair extensions. However, it's important that you pay attention to the pattern of your curly clip ins, being gentle to their texture.

    Textured hair extensions, just like textured hair, naturally struggle to retain moisture - and if handled incorrectly, you may damage the curl pattern or incur issues such as frizz, static, and pesky flyaways.
