Don't Be The Chick With The Bad Weave: 12 Rules For Wearing Clip-In Extensions

Alright ladies, listen up. I know there are a ton of you out there that are wearing clip-in human hair extensions. There is no way that your natural hair is THAT perfect without them, unless you are Barbie. Let’s be honest, even Gretchen Weiner‘s hair wasn’t “big and full of secrets” without the help of a clip-in weave. But, I’m not calling you out for having fake locks. I understand the importance of clipping those little miracle makers into your head. Trust me. I have a set too, but before I tried them, I took the time to learn how to wear them. You can’t just clip those things in and expect to run out the door and look normal. Wearing this type of weave takes work, and if you aren’t putting in the effort you’re going to get some stares, and they won’t be the good kind.

Yes, clip-ins are a little easier to manage and are definitely more affordable than sew-ins or tape-ons, but they usually require just as much time, effort, and maintenance, if not more. Unlike sew-in or tape-on extensions, clip-ins are not permanent, and they do not blend into your hair as well. You have to make a conscious effort to make sure those little silver clips aren’t showing and revealing your secret to the world. You also have to take really good care of them.

Just like you take care of your real hair (I hope), you have to wash and condition them, brush them, curl them, and follow all of the other hair extension rules. Yes. There are rules. And from what I’ve seen, you aren’t following them, girls. There are some crazy things going on out there, and if I know you’re wearing a clip-in weave, others know too. But don’t worry, I’ve learned from all of our mistakes, and that is why I felt the need to round up 12 do’s and don’t’s. So if you wear clip-in extensions, you have a friend who does, or you want to try them, you MUST read the rules in our slideshow. I promise you DO NOT want to be the girl with the “bad weave.”
