HAIR EXTENSION MISTAKES AND HOW TO CORRECT THEM
Wearing hair extension mistakes is really tricky, and without the help of an expert and sometimes with help, you tend to get everything wrong still. Wearing a hair extension makes total sense once you know the right hacks even though it’s hard to get a hang of, it’s actually worth it. You might be feeling uncomfortable with the looks of your hair extension are even getting discouraged. It’s normal to feel that way when you’re getting it wrong.
Below are some hair extension mistakes, and correcting them can give you that amazing feeling you’ve always wanted in your hair extension.
YOU’RE NOT LEAVING ENOUGH HAIR TO COVER THE EXTENSION
It is really important to take note of where you place your clip-in hair extension weft as you don’t want this weft to be showing. Clipping your hair extension too high will leave little or no hair to help cover them and that seamless blend won’t be achieved.
YOU’RE PUTTING ON THE WRONG SIDE
It gets very obvious that you’re wearing a clip-ins when you wear the wrong side of your extension and will be totally impossible to look great or get that amazing blend.
YOU FORGOT TO CLIP UP THE SHORTER PIECES
One of the biggest ways to know you’re wearing a hair extension is the short piece of the hair extension poking ours around your neck. This little thing can really ruin the whole blend. Most especially for those with short hairs, you shouldn’t skip this step. It is really important.
YOU’RE GOING FOR LONGER SETS
If you have really short hair and you’re going for an extension set that is super long, then hiding the disconnects will take a lot of struggle. A clip-in extension is not usually recommended for people with short hairs as blending it will be very hard as well as having enough length to cover the hair clips.
YOU’RE MAKING USE OF TOO MUCH HAIR PRODUCT
We don’t recommend regular washing of hair product. Why? This is because your hair extension doesn’t get the natural nutrient and supply of oil as your hair does. This can lead to building up of heavy product on your hair if you’re using an excess of them. On the long run, your hair extension will start looking dull and no longer attractive as it uses to be.
YOU’RE CLIPPING THE EXTENSIONS TOO HIGH
You’re definitely placing it too high if you’re one of those people who clip their extensions right on the line where they have parted their hair. It is one sure give away that you’re wearing an extension as putting it too high will create a bump and once you’re looking to cover that section, you expose other sections.
YOU’RE PROBABLY SLEEPING ON THEM
It’s a big no-no for you to sleep on your hair extensions as this can cause very big damage to your hair and also the extension. The tossing and turning you don in your sleep can pull a strain on your natural hair and then you start dealing with hair loss or even scalp injury.
These hacks are super simple, but getting them wrong can lead to havoc and getting them right can give your extension a seamless blend.
