Kurly Klips Clip-In Extensions are textured clip-in extensions that I introduced you to a few weeks ago. When I first received my Kurly Klips, I was busy with work and life and unable to conduct a review right away. I’m all in now and willing to make these work.
— My Assessment —
Length: Kurly Klips are extensions that resemble “our” hair really well straight out of the box. The Kurly Klips I selected are the Mermaid Spirals which loosely hang down the length of my back. I’m 5′ 10.5″ and they hang to mid-back length. I selected Mermaid Spirals because I wanted a length that resembled my own. In hindsight, I should have selected a shorter length (Shoulder Chic Spirals) so as the spirals loosen over time, I would gain length that would be just right. The Mermaid Spirals are a great length right now but I can see them being a tad too long once the spirals loosen. If and when that happens, I will do a small trim to take off some length.
Color: For the longest, I swore my hair was a color 1B. Lately, I’ve noticed that 1B simply does not match my hair. As it turns out, the color 2 works way better for my hair. The color of these extensions are 1B so there is a color difference between the Kurly Klips and my hair. That has nothing to do with Kurly Klips, it just means I will have to dye the hair for it to be the most accurate color OR find a way to wear the Kurly Klips to hide the hair color differences.
Texture: Kurly Klips are soft and easy to work with. I really wanted to keep my spirals un-manipulated if possible but that was not possible. Leaving the ringlets un-manipulated resulted in not having good coverage. I had a lot of gaps and spaces and I was looking all sorts of crazy.
I reached out to Kurly Klips to inquire what I was doing wrong and Lana advised me to brush the hair to separate the curls to give the hair more body which then provides more coverage. I opted for finger parting instead to have better control over how much the spirals were separated. Finger parting minimized the potential for big, fluffy, frizzy hair.
Blending: Because I’m so wishy-washy and can’t make up my mind whether I want to be relaxed or natural, I was undecided whether to select from the My Fro or My Spirals collection. I really wanted to select from the My Fro collection but the hair is intimidating! It has a lot of fluff and I don’t do fluff. I also was afraid I could not pull it off and blend my leave out. In hindsight, I should have gotten the My Fro since I’m currently 50 weeks post relaxer. If you’re natural and buy the My Spirals, do know you will have to straighten your leave out for it to blend nicely OR be creative with blending the textures.
Installing: There is a trick to installing Kurly Klips (especially when making a wig) in which I struggled to figure out at first. I seriously thought I didn’t have enough Kurly Klips to cover my entire head at one point. Poor Lana, I know I have worn out my welcome with all of my questions but she provided outstanding customer service and made me feel like I was not a bother at all.
I have tired a number of Kurly Klips install combinations and my best results are with clipping the longer Kurly Klips extensions (3 clip and 4 clip extensions) horizontally from the nape to the crown and the shorter Kurly Klips extensions (2 clip extensions) vertically from the crown to the hairline as shown in the video.
