Kinky Straight Clip in Extensions for Natural Hair

My love affair with Kinky Straight Hair Extensions started 2 years ago with my Kinky Straight Lace Front Wig . Since then no other straight texture compares. It blended perfectly with my hair when I was transitioning with no heat.  I just did my big chop 2 weeks ago after transitioning for 1 year and 2 months so I am 100% percent natural. I will probably have to blow dry my hair for it to blend flawlessly now.

This is my first time trying clip ins. I watched a million Youtube videos on clip ins for natural hair and I finally took the plunge. I got kinky straight extensions in 14 inches. This texture looks like natural hair when it is blown out.

I did not try to blend my hair, this was just to try it onIt was the end of a long day, my hair was in flat twists under a wig so I took out the flat twists in the front and side of my hair and combed my hair just to try on the clips ins. I have type 4 natural hair. The back of my hair is still flat twisted. This hair is super soft and looks very natural.

I have to dye the hair to a 1b color because it is a dark brown color. One fear I had with clip ins is that the clips would snag and get caught up in my hair. If you take your time putting them in and taking them out they do not snag.

I got one set of clip ins which had 8 pieces and it gives me a natural density which I like.

I know some people hate the crimps. I left the hair to air dry after washing it. To get rid of the crimps, instead of letting it air dry, blow dry. If you want more sleekness, follow with a flat iron.

If you want this texture check out companies like Big Chop Hair, Kinky Curly Yaki, My Natural Hair Extensions, Her Given Hair etc. 

Next post will be my an initial review and how to blend your hair without heat.
