Helpful Tips:

· If you have short hair make your first part from lower temple to lower temple instead of ear to ear or below.

· If you have long hair or you have purchased the same length as your natural hair, make your first part 1 inch from the nape of your neck, then place clips-ins for added length.

· For volume make your first part from ear, then place clips-ins.

· Also 1pkg is usually enough for a full head however if your hair is shorter than three times the length of the clips you desire you may require 2pkgs or 1pkgs and a half. Example if your natural hair is 5 inches ideally you should purchase 16-inch clip-in extensions if you choose to purchase 18 or 20 inch you may require up to 2pkgs.

· Use a demi permanent color or a rinse to match your hair color to your clip-in extensions this ensure your hair is radiant and matches seamlessly.

· Choose a texture of clip-in extensions that truly matches your hair type.

· If your hair is natural you may require a relaxer or a good wash and blow dry bi weekly.

· Have a stylist trim or layer your clip-in extensions.

· Number your extensions using white or red nail polish, to know their placement after they have been cut or layered, use the drop method 1 drop for the first row, 2 drops for the second row, 3 drops for the third row.
