This article is about the best curly clip in hair extensions available in 2022.
I see you girls with good curls, looking to pump up the volume or add some length to your natural do.
And let me tell you – I got you! Today I’m going to show you a great set of clip in extensions, whether your hair corkscrew curls or beachy waves as you waltz on by.
And who am I to be imparting such knowledge? Well, I’m Bianca, and I’m the girl with fine hair (as in, my friends used to call me ‘Blonde Smoke’ as my hair used to hang like a thin haze around my head…).
Until I found extensions, that is! Now I’ve mastered tape-ins, clip ins, keratin bonds, wefts, Brazilian knots, and so much more! So let me help you get the tresses you’ve lusted after in magazines without breaking your hair or your budget.
And let me tell you if you are blessed to have proper curls in a darker shade (think- Latin goddesses like Salma Hayek). And if you want those curls to tumble down your back as dramatically as a daytime tell novella, then YoungSee Clip Ins are your next set of clip ins!
However, I promised from corkscrew to beachy wave – and I like to over-deliver on my promises – so if you prefer a softer curl, then keep reading as there’s something for everyone on my comprehensive list!

5 Best Curly Clip In Extensions – Our Top Picks
In this section, I will go over my top picks and detailed reviews for each one.
- Key features: 100% Remy human hair, 7 pieces
- Extension length: 12-24 inches
- Volume: 100 grams per bundle
- Best for: Overall
YoungSee clip in extensions say wavy on the pack, but these are very easy to curl up, and the hair holds the curl well.
These extensions are insanely good quality. The hair is glossy, silky, and medium-fine – so the hair works well over a range of ethnicities!
The quality of the hair is particularly impressive, and I feel that these extensions will last well beyond the “3-6 months” advertised.
The wefts themselves are thin, and the clips are sturdy. This means they sit close to your head and stay put all day – no matter what you’re up to!
If you’re looking to add volume (not length), you can get away with ordering just one pack. But if you want to add length and volume, then I would budget for at least two packs.
- Key features: 100% Virgin human hair, 10 pieces
- Extension length: 10-22 inches
- Volume: 120 grams per bundle
- Best for: Kinky Curly Hair
All 3C/4A Queens – this one is for you!
UrBeauty has made you a delightful set of thick, soft, versatile extensions which have never been color processed!
Yes, that’s right – for under $40, you can get some soft, gorgeous, curly clip ins that hold their curl after co-washing and fluff out after combing AND (draws breath dramatically) are made of Virgin hair!
Taking good care of Virgin hair can last up to a whopping two2 years! So – these are brilliant value – if you take care of them and put in the work.
You’ll love the TRIPLE weft if you have fairly thick hair (yes, triple). I found the bigger wefts slightly bulky for my taste. However, I am not blessed with thick hair, so if you are – these larger wefts will delight you.
- Key features: 100% Remy human hair, clip in extensions, 7 pieces
- Extension length: 12-20 inches
- Volume: 70-100 grams
- Best for: Soft curls
UrBeauty has come up with another stunning set of clip in extensions in this softer curled version.
The finer hair is suited to those looking for a beachy glam or a soft curled set of locks for a night out on the town.
Ranging from brunettes through to natural black, the hair is technically Remy as there has been light processing done to it, but it’s as near to Virgin hair as you can get.
UrBeauty makes sure that the cuticles have all remained aligned and intact, meaning these extensions will last ages and ages.
The other wonderful thing about having most of the cuticles intact means that you have that healthy bounce and movement with the hair that you don’t get when it is overly processed.
Again, UrBeauty tends to use a triple weft, which means each weft is incredibly thick, but that comes with its own set of issues in that they can be bulky – and HEAVY.
So wearing these are amazing and add massive amounts of volume, but after about 6 hours, I could *feel* them because of the weight.
- Key features: Synthetic hair, 4 pieces
- Extension length: 20 inches
- Volume: 200 grams per pack
- Best for: Bouncy Curls
These synthetic extensions from DeeThens come in 14 different color options – from single colors through to ombre colors and rooted shades.
These synthetic clip ins are incredibly thick, and the wefts are long. Because the long wefts wrap around the head, they help create a seamless blend with your natural hair.
You can wash these extensions in cold water, and they will bounce back into their curly glory quickly and easily.
With a wide range of colors, most hairstyles will be wonderfully augmented by adding the DeeThens extensions in. Just remember, as synthetic, you will need to buy a specialist product like a wig conditioner spray to get the best out of them and help them last a little longer.
- Key features: 100% Remy Hair, 7 pieces
- Extension length: 10-22 inches
- Volume: 120 grams per pack

If you are looking for a set of curly extensions that are tighter than a Jerry curl but looser than Afro curls, then here you go!
These ABH curly extensions are exactly what you are looking for. They are in a 3C / 4A texture and are a fantastic Screw curl that bounces joyfully as you move.
As the soft and luxurious hair is good quality Remy hair, the extensions can be cut, heat styled, and washed like normal hair.
With extra fast shipping, these extensions are a solid all-rounder at an excellent price.
Just remember to grab an extra set for fuller volume or to add a little length.
What to Consider?
When buying curly clip in hair extensions, there are a few key things to keep in mind.
How Many Sets of Clip In Extensions Should You Order?
If you want to add volume, not length, one set usually does the trick. If you want to pump up the volume and add 2 inches, I suggest two sets.
The more length you want to add – and the thicker your hair is – the more sets you need to get that full, luscious, Hollywood-worthy hairstyle.
How Do You Match the Texture and Curl of Your Hair to the Extensions?
First off, you need to define your hair texture. Do you have thin, fine hair, coarse hair, textured hair, or flyaway hair?
Then you need to define your type of curl. Do you have corkscrew curls, kinky curls, loose waves, or curls? Once you have defined your texture and curl, you can search for hair extensions that match those.
Also, remember you can play around with how you wash and style the extensions after.
And there you have it! My wonderful list of the best curly clip in extensions on the web today.
From corkscrew curls to gently curling locks – there’s something for everyone on this list.
My favorites are still the YoungSee Clip Ins, as they are suitable for a range of ethnicities, can be curled in a range of ways, and seem to be a crowd pleaser on a wide range of criteria.
