Whether you prefer natural human hair or you have no real preference, when it comes to black clip-in hair extensions, the hair you use matters. When you have a black clip-in hair extension set, you have to take care of it, and knowing how to do so depending on the type of hair you use will ensure its longevity.

This guide will help you understand more about hair extensions, and black clip-in hair extensions in particular, so you can shop wisely for extensions in the future. Black hair is noticeable and difficult to care for because it's not highlighted and extensions can really stand out in the hair, so the more you know, the more gorgeous your tresses can be when your hair extensions are in place.

Synthetic hair

Synthetic black clip-in hair extensions are cheaper than human hair ones, so if you're on a budget, stick to this style. Just make sure you choose black hair extensions that are not blue or gray in their low lights, with more of a brown low light being the more natural choice. If you have black hair, hold your natural tresses up to the sun or other light and take note of the low light you see (this is the shade of hair your hair turns when it's in the light). Copy this color with synthetic black clip-in extensions if you can so your extensions match your natural hair best.

You also want to make sure your synthetic hair isn't too shiny, since this can make them stand out among your natural hair. Synthetic hair cannot be curled, blow-dried, or straightened since it will melt in the heat, so when buying synthetic black clip-in hair extensions, keep texture in mind.

Human hair

If you want to have a more natural appearance while wearing clip-in hair extensions, then choose black human hair that has not been dyed or chemically treated. This will give you the more natural results you desire and allow you to enjoy your hair regardless of how you want to style it. Black hair clip-in hair extensions can be curled, straightened, and otherwise treated much like normal hair so long as they are made of human hair. You'll pay more for the hair but get the best results for styling and versatility this way. Your hairstylist can show you how to put your black clip hair extensions in for the best results.
