Attach extension to your hair:
Now you’re done choosing your hair extension, the next step is to attach it to your hair. I’m listing down that how to attach the real hair extensions clip into your hair at home.
- Start with brushing your hair and use your paddle brush to get rid of tangles, if any.
- Now take a comb and separate a thin section of your hair at the nape of your neck.
- Clip the rest of your hair using a hair clip.
- Now take your extension and brush it first using the paddle brush. Measure the weft against your head to ensure that the size fits perfectly to your sectioned hair.
- After measuring, find out the center of your head and clip the extension in the middle of your head into the roots.
- After clipping it in the middle, clip it on the right side as well as the left side of your hair roots.
- The first weft is now been attached. You have to follow the same procedure to attach all the wefts into your hair.

- Now brush your hair softly using the paddle brush along with the clip in extensions. Enjoy!
Washing your real hair extensions clip in:
If you need to wash your clip in the extension you need to remember that you can apply shampoo and conditioner only if your extension is made up of the human hair. In order to wash them remove them from your head first and brush them to remove all the tangles. Once removed, wet the extension in lukewarm water. Continue to comb them so they may not get tangled. Use a sulfate free shampoo and then rinse them with lukewarm water. Apply lightweight conditioner starting from the top towards the bottom. Wrap them in the towel and gently squeeze out the water. Dry them out.
