I made and installed some DIY clip in extensions which I am totally in love with and wanted to share the experience with you! They are super easy and super fun! I am now able to remove my extensions with a snap (no pun intended) and take care of my hair in terms of washing, treating and moisturizing. Thank you YOUTUBE!
Here is how you may make them for yourself. Enjoy xx
Youtube is just absolutely amazing. Honest. There isn’t anything you can think of that isn’t on Youtube already! So, thanks to Youtube, here’s another DIY that I have just completed.
I just relaxed my hair after about a year and a half hiatus. My hair texture is very “‘fine” aka thin! So I usually use a weave to give my hair body as well as length. But this time I want to keep my hair healthy and protected despite wearing a weave. With clip-ins I can remove them easily, wash, treat and moisturize easily. That is the main reason I have chosen to go the way of clip-ins. Not to mention it is easier on the pocket!
It is pretty easy and all you need are:
- Hair Extension (of your choice)
- Wig Clips
- Needle & Thread
- Elbow grease *-*
* Clip-ins are meant to last a very long time so when choosing extension be sure to use those of good quality that are sure to last as long as you hope for.
* In the videos, they often double the weave before sewing onto the clip. However, for those with thinner hair (like myself) you may want to stitch one layer onto the lower holes and the other layer in the top holes. This will reduce the bulkiness for thin hair.
* Regular needle and regular black thread are just as effective as weave threads and needles. Don’t go buying unnecessary things.
