Clip-in hair extensions are one of the easiest ways to get longer, fuller hair and they give you the opportunity to experiment with colour too.
Clip-in hair extensions are affordable, durable and worn by beginner and seasoned extensions users but how long you can wear them is a question that pops up all the time.
There are a lot of different variables to this answer but the short answer is that you can only wear them for one day if you’re asking about day-to-day usage.
Sleeping with hair extensions
While clip-in hair extensions are completely safe to wear during the day, they cannot be worn to bed. Sleeping with this specific type of hair extension will damage your natural hair and there really is no reason to sleep with them in the first place.
If you were to sleep with your clip-in extensions, you will place a lot of strain on your natural hair as you toss and turn during the night. The movement will also tangle your hair, making it more difficult to manage the next day. Sleeping with the extensions can also cause the hair to fall out of the clip.
Overall, sleeping with your clip-in hair extensions will only end up breaking your natural hair and extend your morning routine when you need to sit and detangle your locks.
Permanent hair extension options
If you would prefer to keep your hair extensions in then it’s going to be better to consider the permanent hair extension options from EH Hair & Extensions.
Tape, microbead and weft hair extensions can be left in your hair, which means you can sleep and shower with them too. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t protect your extensions when you sleep though. It’s important to never go to bed with wet extensions and if you really want to prevent tangling, put your hair into a loose braid before bed.
It’s also important to maintain your permanent hair extensions every 4 – 6 weeks to keep your hair in great condition.
The lifespan of clip-in hair extensions
In some cases, clip-in hair extensions can last longer than other types of extensions. This is because you don’t wear them constantly. It also helps if you purchase Remy hair extensions, which are made with real human hair and haven’t been processed.
High-quality clip-in hair extensions can last up to 6 months if you care for them correctly. If you will be wearing your extensions on a daily basis, it’s important to brush them daily and wash them at least twice a week to increase their lifespan. The more you care for your clip-in hair extensions as if they were your own hair, the more natural they will look and the longer they will last. It will also prevent your extensions from tangling and matting, which will speed up your morning routine too.
If you will be dyeing your extensions, be sure to seek the assistance of a professional salon such as EH Hair & Extensions.
