Heat styling your natural hair extensions
One of the main attractions of quality, real hair extensions is the ability to heat style them, allowing you to create all your favourite styles that blend seamlessly with your own hair.
Our Remy human hair extensions are in such good condition that you’ll be able to use heat when styling - whether from a blow drier, straightener, or curling iron. It’s important to know, though, that just like your own hair, extensions can suffer damage from the over use of heat tools.
Here are our top tips for using heat tools to style your natural hair extensions.
+ Use protection. If you use high-heat tools like curling tongs or straightening irons, make sure to use a heat protector spray before you start with the tool. A product like our moisturising heat protection spray is ideal.
+ Don’t overdo it. Just like we recommend giving your natural hair a break once in a while, it’s important to give your hair extensions a rest from heat tools too. Doing so will help them last much longer.
+ Curl it up. If you're wanting to create a curly style, it’s a good idea to curl your extensions separately. This is because your natural hair and the extensions will likely have slightly different textures and may require different curling times or higher/lower heat. By doing them separately, you reduce the risk of damaging your own and the extensions. Once applied, you can make small adjustments for blending.
+ Take care. If you use product such as hair spray after styling your extensions, take care when washing to get rid of any residue. Using products like our shampoo and conditioner, and treating your locks gently will greatly increase the life of your extensions.
Following the above steps will allow you to create natural & healthy looking styles for many months to come.
