Wash your clip-in extensions once a month with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner.  This will help replace lost moisture and prevent split ends.  When washing your clip-ins remember to smooth the shampoo into the hair and rinse well.  Leave the hydrating conditioner on the clip-ins for at least 5 minutes before rinsing.  If you can leave your clip-in hair extensions to dry naturally overnight.

When using tongs or hair straightners, be careful not to burn your hair extensions.  If you use too much heat, this will eventually cause the extension to fray, resulting in split ends and dry tangled hair.  Invest in a high quality heat protector to avoid damage to your extension hair and try your best not to use excessive heat when styling.

Your clip-in hair extensions have already been through a variety of chemical processes so it would not be wise to perform additional chemical treatments.  It is advisable not to perm or dye your clip-in hair extensions.
