3. Attach the strip close to the parting line and close the clips, ensuring the strip is straight.
4. Take down a layer of hair from above the completed section and blend to look natural.
Using and caring for your Wildest Dreams Extensions
Will extensions work with thin hair?
Fine and thin hair are the perfect hair types for Wildest Dreams clip-in extensions as they add volume and length. This is because our clip-in extensions are temporary and don’t cause as much damage as other types such as glues, bonding and sewing.
When fitting clip-ins in fine hair, we’ve got a few tips and tricks:
Can you dye Wildest Dreams hair extensions?
We wouldn’t recommend dying your extensions.
Will hair extensions damage my hair?
The Wildest Dreams hair extensions are temporary clip-ins that won’t interfere with the hair’s structure. To prevent damage, we recommend backcombing the roots and applying some hairspray to give them a better grip, specifically on fine, thin hair. You should also remove the extensions at the end of the day and do not sleep wearing them.
If applied and worn correctly, our temporary clip-in extensions will hardly cause any damage. When removing, always be careful and fully open the clips to avoid tearing. If necessary, use a detangler and leave-in conditioning spray to brush out and smoothen the backcombed roots afterwards.
How many clip-in extensions will I need?
How many you need will depend on the thickness of your natural hair and the look you’re trying to achieve. Wildest dreams are sold as 18 inch single weft, 18 inch half head, or 18 inch full head. Buying a full head product will not necessarily mean this will be all you need, it all depends on the thickness you’re trying to create and you may require more dependant if you want a thicker result.
