Looking After Your Hair Extensions: 4 Top Tips
NEVER SLEEP WITH WET EXTENSIONS
We cannot stress enough the importance of thoroughly drying your locks before going to bed. Never sleeping with wet hair is a rule of thumb when it comes to caring for your extensions. Your hair is at its weakest when it is wet, which means that the tossing and turning while you sleep can take its toll on both your natural locks and extensions.
ALWAYS BRUSH EXTENSIONS WITH CARE
Just like when you brush your natural hair a little too harshly, and you see strands begin to fall out, your extensions will start to become loose if you fail to take care. It is inevitable that your extensions will experience some tangling, but it’s how you tackle it that counts.
MINIMISE HEAT DAMAGE
Your hair extensions become damaged when you overuse heat on them. Before using any heated styling tools, don’t forget to apply a heat protect, turn down the temperature and take regular break from heat.
WASHING YOUR EXTENSIONS
Since your extensions aren't subject to the oils produced by your scalp the way your natural hair is, you don’t have to wash them as often. As a general rule, the less you wash your extensions the longer they will last. You can use your best judgment on how often to wash them, however, we recommend only washing them once there is a lot of product build up. When washing your extensions, it's important you hydrate them as much as possible. Our specially formulated extension shampoo is an ideal choice; follow up with an appropriate conditioner to further increase the life of your locks.
