Clip-in hair extensions are easy to wear on and take off. However, sometimes you may not have time or cannot remember to take it off and go to bed with it. It’s okay to sleep when you have clip-in hair extensions on your head but you have to find a way to reduce the damage when you sleep with clip-in hair extensions. If you don’t know how to do that, this article is for you!!

Can You Sleep With Clip-In Hair Extensions?

Yes, you can. But I recommend you shouldn’t do this. Many people choose to sleep with clip-in hair extensions to save time, keep the styled texture overnight,.. It works! But the side effects are really bad. You have to suffer hurt caused by clips, tangling, and even hair loss. If your occasion makes you do that, Mic Hair have some tips for you at the following.

What you should do when sleeping with clip in hair extensions?

Detangle your hair before sleeping

It’s very important to detangle your hair with clip-in hair extensions before you go to bed. If you don’t do that before going to sleep, your hair will get badly tangled and damaged after a long night. You can use a wide-tooth comb or a special designed brush to gently detangle your hair. While you are brushing, you can also apply a hair mask or oil to smoothen your hair and keep your hair hydrated.

Sleep on your stomach or side

If you are too tired to remember to take the clip-ins off and want a quick nap immediately, I suggest sleeping on your stomach or side. When compared with sleeping on the back, sleeping on the stomach or side is much more effective in preventing your hair from tangling and damage. However, sleeping on the stomach for a long time may not be an ideal sleeping posture for someone because it may cause neck pain and back pain. So, only do this when you want a quick nap.

Wear a bonnet before sleeping

If your clip-in hair extensions are not securely attached, they can shift and slip out because of your head movements. These movements can also cause tangling and friction. Luckily, Bonnets are created to protect your hair while sleeping. A silk or satin bonnet is a very effective solution to reduce friction and prevent your hair from tangling and keep your hair more hydrated.

What you should avoid when sleeping with clip in hair extensions?

Don’t sleep with wet hair extensions

Sleeping with wet hair is not only bad for your hair, but also your scalp. When your hair including natural hair and hair extensions are wet, sleeping with them can cause breakage and split ends. In addition, damp and warm environments such as wet hair are very favorable conditions for fungal infection on the scalp. So, make sure to dry your hair before going to bed.

Don’t sleep with your clip-in hair extensions so often

Although I gave you many tips to minimize the damage when sleeping with clip-in hair extensions, I suggest you shouldn’t sleep with your extensions too often. No matter how carefully you prepare, your hair and scalp will more or less be damaged. Keep in mind that this guide is to help you on rare occasions. 

Don’t scratch your hair

In general, sleeping while wearing hair extensions can cause itchiness in some ways. As our natural reactions, we will start using our fingernails to scratch our scalp to remove the itchiness. We know that it’s not good for our hair. But, how can we control our actions when we are sleeping? All we can do is just keep our hair with clip-in hair extensions clean.


In conclusion, by following my tips, you can reduce damage and tangle when you go to sleep with clip-in hair extensions. However, try to take the clip-in hair extensions off before going to sleep.
