Types of Curly Hair Extensions
If you have never used curly hair extensions before, it can all feel a little bit overwhelming when you see a store full of them, so let’s break down the basics! There are three common types of curly hair extensions that you can choose from and find your style.
Natural Curly Hair Extensions
If you want to opt for a natural look that will match neatly with what your hair is already doing, then natural curly hair extensions are the way to go.
Natural curly hair extensions generally require less maintenance as they are less styled from the outset. Talk to us about finding the best option for your hair and your style.
Wavy Hair Extensions
There are some key differences between curly and wavy hair that those with straight hair may not know anything about!
If you have wavy hair, you will have at least one more wave pattern in your hair than someone with curly hair. Wavy hair extensions will match those different patterns in your hair to create a

At RiRi’s, we have a wide selection of curled clip-in ponytails to suit any style. Whether you are looking for a messy bun or a long flick wrap ponytail, we can give you the look and the confidence you deserve.
How To Clip In & Blend Curly Hair Extensions
If you have never clipped in and blended curly hair extensions before, it is perfectly understandable that you will have a lot of questions. But it is a simple process, and we have got you covered! Let’s break down the key steps and how to do each one.
Part Your Hair
Before you clip in your extensions, make sure that your hair is lined up properly. We advise that you part your hair horizontally across your head to give you the best space to work.
Attach Your Extensions
Next, you are going to want to open the clips on your extensions. Once they are open, simply slide them into your hair. Make sure they are lined up correctly before you close the clips.
Let Your Hair Down
Check that the clips are closed and that you are happy with the angle. Once you are satisfied, it is time to let your hair down. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look quite right, you can simply start the process again!
Brush Your Hair
The best way to blend your extensions with your hair is by lightly brushing it. Avoid applying too much pressure. A gentle brush through your hair and newly attached extensions will help to make sure that everything looks good. And you’re ready to go!
How To Maintain Your Curly Weave
Once you are happy with how your weave looks, the next step is going to be making sure that you keep it looking it’s best. The good news is that weaves are pretty easy to maintain! Three things you need to do are
- Check for knots
- Be gentle and patient when brushing and washing
- Use gentle hair products
If you have never had a weave before, there is always the temptation to do too much, or not enough. The steps that you need to take are simple, but you do need to make sure that you are getting them right!
Brushing Curly Extensions
Over-brushing or brushing too harshly will cause damage to your curly extensions, so you are going to want to be careful. A soft brush or a wide-toothed comb are great options to limit the amount of pressure you are putting on them.
When you are brushing your extensions, you should also think about brushing from the bottom of your hair up to the top of your scalp. Brushing with your fingers helps if you have tight curly extensions.
How To Detangle Curly Extensions
You want to be careful when you are detangling curly extensions. It will not take much for a forceful brush to cause them to come loose, or to damage them.
So, instead of taking your brush and addressing your whole head of hair at once, try to target one tangle at a time. Think about using your fingers or a comb with wide teeth to be as gentle as you possibly can.
How To Wash Curly Hair Extensions
One of the best ways to wash your hair extensions is in the sink. Fill up your sink with warm water and use gentle products. Look for ones that do not contain alcohol or sulphates.
You need to shampoo each weft, and wash one weft at a time to avoid tangles. Apply conditioner, using the same process as with shampoo. When you are all done, let your curly hair extensions air dry.
