I'm thinking of trying clip-in extensions, has anyone tried these? I'm going on vacation and would like a new look! But I don't want to get a damaging weave.
I've watched videos on youtube about putting them in, but I still wonder if they are that easy and if they look natural. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions or experiences with clip-ins they could share? I'm african american-(doesn't make a difference, just thought I'd mention)!
thanks!

Yes, they are very easy and will look natural if you match your color and texture. I love them.

Lol Ive actually looked at them just for kicks, and was thinking of trying one on, at a beauty place not long ago. Problem was, all of them were shorter than my hair already is....Im waist length!
They probably look really good though, if you put one oon correctly.

I make my own. Don't buy the ones with several pieces this can be very tricky to put in, and very uncomfortable! I use human hair and sew it together 4 rows thick add the clips and put them in. I use one row temple to temple, and at times, one narrow one at the nape of the neck. Back comb hair and apply a hard hold hairspray where clips go in to keep from slipping out. The nice thing about making your own is they fit perfectly. No one ever knows I'm wearing extra hair.

Yes, I use them all the time. I've bought the sets that have several pieces, they are way too much work for me. My latest favorite is the ken paves line. It's one piece with several clips and very easy. I buy the synthetic ones and they work great for me.

If you are new with hair extenisons, the clip in is the best choice. It is very easy. And you can do it by yourself. For the micro loop, you have to got to hair salon and ask for a hair stylish for help which is very expensive. In my experience, you can try with the clip in step by step. It is very easy And then you will love it. For the question, whether they look natural, it depends on the color and the weight of the clip in you choose. That is really important. I hope this will be helpful for you.

My hair is thin and the clips show through my hair. Clip-in hair extensions are not for everyone.

Im not sure where she got it but I used to know a lady who had a type of wiglet that had an open weave mesh base. She placed it on top of her hair like a hat. Then she pulled pieces of hair thru the open mesh with a crochet hook. It looked really natural. Not wiglike at all. I dont think it would work on longer hair though. Maybe if it was shorter on top. Probably have the same problems as frosting with a cap and crochet hook.

Ive have looked at the clip ins but they just dont match my fine hair texture. I do have a braid that I use to beef up my bun.
