BACKCOMB THE ROOTS
If you have thin hair or just find that your hair extensions need a little extra help staying in place, this tip is for you. For the hair extensions to hold comfortably in your hair, gently backcomb the roots before application. Use a natural bristle brush to avoid damaging the hair and gently backcomb around 1-inch from the scalp. For optimum hold, use a light mist of hairspray at the root before clipping-in your hair extensions to add texture.
HIDE THE SHORTER PIECES
Great for those with very thick hair or a shorter, blunt haircut; the section of hair at the nape of the neck is more likely to stick-out whilst wearing hair extensions
. Unless you are already blessed with long hair and are using your hair extensions for volume, your shorter hairs can peek through the ends, making it look more obvious that you have hair extensions in. Gather the bottom layer of your hair at the nape of your neck and braid it. Then, wrap the braid around itself flat against your head, and pin in place with bobby pins.
LAYERED HAIR HACK!
Do you have layered hair? If so, you are going to love this hack. Clipping your wefts in a diagonal line is a simple trick if you are looking to fake the look of layers. This method gives your hair a natural high to low effect that blends perfectly with layered hair. If you have shorter hair around the frame of your face, you will want to feather your extensions to complement your style.
Clip-in hair extensions are not constantly attached to the natural hair or worn overnight, therefore they should not need to be regularly washed. If your extensions have too much product build-up to brush-out and need to be washed, only use a sulphate-free shampoo. Sulphates will strip moisture from your extensions, making them brittle and dull in colour.
We strongly advise against using dry-shampoo on your hair extensions; it can result in product build-up and will dry out your extensions.
From a trendy lob to long, cascading curls in minutes, hair extensions allow you to change up your look instantly. Try these easy hair extensions hacks the next time you wear your hair extensions to make styling your hair a breeze! Not got your LullaBells hair extensions yet?!
