Using Hair Extensions For Volume

I'm not much of a makeup freak but when it comes to my hair, I use a variety of products to keep it healthy and maintain its texture as its really fine and I get it chemically straightened and colored every now and then. Even though my straight hair looks neat and tidy, its also falls flat and I find it kinda boring, and I've always wanted to add volume to it. Since I'll never be able to do it myself (heck, I don't even own a hair dryer) and getting a blowout at a salon every other day is pretty inconvenient, While going through Wigsbuy - a great online store that stocks a fantastic range of wigs and extensions, I realized that the simplest and cheapest way to add volume to hair is to with clip in hair extensions.

 In fact, this is a trick used by many celebrities for beautiful body and thick, voluminous hairstyles. So, how do we use hair extensions for volume? 

First you have to prepare your hair and extensions. Wash and blow-dry your hair with a light mousse, to add texture and volume to your locks. Scrunch it as you go to add some waves and texture. It’s easier to hide extensions if your hair has a bit of texture. Make sure your extensions match the texture of your natural hair. If necessary, use a curling iron or flat iron to add some oomph. Gather your tools: a comb, at least four clip-in extensions, a clip to hold up your hair, and a light hairspray.

Before you begin, open all the clips on your extensions. With your hair down, pull up half your hair and clip it out of the way, so the very lowest layer at the back of your head is down, and the top is completely clipped away. The part should be at about mid-ear. At the part that separates upper hair from lower hair, insert your first extension, starting with the middle clips and working outward until it’s completely clipped to your head. Unclip your top hair, and let down another layer, about a finger-length above the previous part. Repeat the process, inserting another extension. They key here is using your natural hair to layer over the extensions to hide the clips.
