Clip In Extensions
- Great for those who want to be able to switch from short to long hair
- You don't have to wash these very often so they'll last you a longer time than the average extensions
- Very little damage if applied properly
- Requires the client to put them in and take them out every day, this may become tedious to some people.
- Better for people who are gentle on their hair because they have the possibility of falling out if you pull on them too hard

Choosing The Right Shampoo For Extensions
Although the hair extensions I provide are always human hair, it is very important to use the recommended products. Because hair extensions are no longer attached to a head, they do not receive the nutrients, natural oils, or immune system that your actual hair has. If you replenish the hair extensions with moisture from a product with acceptable ingredients, you’ll notice your hair will last much longer. It’s important to remember that once the hair is damaged, there is really no turning back, so protect your investment by using the recommended products.
Ingredients to avoid
Sulfate: Used as a cheap cleansing agent for attracting then breaking of dirt on the hair and scalp. This ingredient is extremely drying for the extensions. If you use a shampoo or products with sulfates in it, your extensions will start feeling brittle very quickly as it strips the hair of good and bad oils. Because it strips the good and bad oils of your hair, your body will start to overproduce scalp oils with extended use. If your hair seems to get oily in one day or less, sulfates in your shampoo may be why. Studies have also shown that the addition of Sulfate in cosmetics could cause certain damages to the body such as eye damage, which can lead to blindness in small children. Other than that, Sulfate can also cause to irritate the skin due to its ability to penetrate and ruin skin barriers. Sulfate has been found out to be toxic and carcinogenic. It also causes hair loss and hair thinning because it deteriorates the follicles of the hair, and slows the growth of hair.
Alcohol: Alcohol is usually added in these products as a swelling agent. Alcohol opens up the cuticle of the hair in order to penetrate the product throughout the hair. The only problem is that once your cuticle is open, it never fully closes again. And the more you open it, the more it dries out. Alcohol is another very drying ingredient for the hair extensions. You’ll want to try to stay away from products with alcohol. There are only a couple of different plant based alcohols that are ok to use on the extensions.
Sodium Chloride: Also known as table salt, is very drying on the extensions. Not only will it dry out your extensions, it can make your color fade very fast. Salt is an irritant and can damage the hair and scalp when used repeatedly over time - this is due to chemical erosion, Just as eating salty foods can make us feel dehydrated, sodium chloride dries out the skin and hair. Lack of moisture makes the skin of the scalp more prone to cracking, and can cause dandruff and psoriasis. The hair itself becomes dry and brittle, and will break easily. Sodium Hydroxide is created via electrolysis of sodium chloride, and there fore should be avoided as well. This is another extremely drying ingredient. Ironically, many lotion companies put it in their lotions so your hands will never get fully moisturized, and you’ll keep coming back for more.
