How to put in hair extensions at home

Last year at tax time I purchased hair extensions from Sallys. I aways get great compliments when I wear them and most people who dont know me do not know half my hair is fake. When you purchase hair extensions be sure to buy real human hair. The real human hair extensions can be worn straight or curled. Hair Extensions cost around $85. They come in clip ins or you may purchase ones to glue in your hair. Clip ins can be placed in your hair in minutes and make you look great.

Clip in extensions verses Glue in Extensions

I have personally worn both the clip in extensions and the glue in extensions. Clip in extensions come with clips attached to the hair to clip under the layers of your real hair. They can be taken in and out whenever you are finished wearing them for the day.a person can also do the clip ins alone.  With glue in extensions you must purchase the glue seperatly and I end up always having glue on my sculp for weeks. Glue in extensions can be washed as you wash your own hair. Clip in extensions should be washed when taken out of your hair. I find after a few days they need cleaned because they tend not to hold a curl as well when they are dirty.It is also hard to place glue in extensions in by yourself, you often need someone else to help you with them,

Hair extensions are a work of art. Our two daughters have kept us hopping to the beauty supply stores for quite a while.

Awesome, I have a friend who wears the clip in type and I did not know it till she stayed over night this holiday. We were up late talking having a glass of wine before bed, and she proceeded to take out her extensions, I was shocked, I said, "You wear extensions?" She said, "yes didn't you know?"

Honestly, I did not the color matched perfectly and she has straight hair. She gave me a quick tutorial on how to do it and you have too! Great and well done! :) Katie
