HAIR CARE TIPS AT HOME TO MAKE EXTENSIONS LAST

If you want to transform your appearance in just a matter of minutes, hair extensions are definitely one of your best options. They will give you the full, thick and luscious hair you’ve been dreaming of.

When you’re looking after your human hair extensions at home, you do need to treat them just as you treat your own hair, or perhaps better. Keep in mind, they don’t benefit from the natural oils that your own hair does. Your scalp oil keeps your own hair nourished, but hair extensions don’t have a scalp to cling to and be nourished by.

 

Use a deep conditioning treatment weekly, to ensure that the extensions are nourished. Choose a natural or extension friendly shampoo. Use high quality hair care products but don’t overdo it, too much hair care product can cause build up and tangling over time. So you want to be careful with the amount of product you use. Never use any products containing oil, alcohol or ethanol as this can damage the hair extensions and also wear down on the adhesive. Try your best to use sulfate free shampoo and conditioner as well as 100% natural hair products to keep hair extensions in good condition. 

 

Just like your natural locks, hair extensions become damaged when you overuse heat on them. It can become brittle and split ends will accumulate. This means that no matter how many conditioning treatments you apply, once the extensions are damaged, you may have no choice but to replace the hair.
