Wrap extensions around fingers
Wrap the midpoint of the extension around your index and middle finger creating a loop and two equal sections.
Pull hair through loop
Pull a section of your hair, about a 1/4-inch thick, through the extension loop and tighten to create three separate strands.
Apply a dab of hair gel to prevent the sections from frizzing; just don't make them too brittle or stiff.
Weave three sections
Use a simple braid pattern to start and weave all three sections together until your hair becomes the middle strand.
Combine hair with extension
Separate your hair into twp equal sections and combine with the extension to create two different strands of both the extension and your natural hair.
Twist both sections together in a checkerboard pattern by throwing one strand over the top of the other over and over again until you reach the end.
Dip ends in boiling water
Dip the ends of the extensions in boiling water to secure the twist, or let them remain frayed and use a hair tie to hold the twist in place.
