Although there are countless ways of tips and tricks out there on how to care for human hair extensions, we swear by these general care tips when owning human hair extensions and get the most out of it.
1. Wash your hair properly. You’ve got to care for your hair extensions just like as if it’s your own hair. However, unlike natural hair, human hair extensions can only be washed 1-2 times per week. This will help ensure that the natural shine of the extensions will not easily wear off. When hair extensions get soaked on salt water or pool water, make sure to rinse it as soon as you get-off from the pool as salt and chlorine are considered to be dehydrators. These dehydrators can easily dry your hair and damage may not be easily reversed.
2. Use sulfate-free shampoo. Keep your human hair extensions healthy by using sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates can easily dry out your hair extensions and strip them off of their colours. Since hair extensions are not attached directly to your scalp, they do not get the natural moisture or oil to keep your hair silky smooth and is unable to repair itself. Sulfate-free shampoo should be your number 1 best friend when caring for your hair extensions.
3. Use appropriate brushes/combs. Brushing hair will not only keep your hair tangle-free, but it will also help distribute the essential oils evenly among hair strands. There specially made hair extensions brushes whose bristles are gentle for maintaining tangle-free hair extensions.
4. Drying and Styling your hair extensions. Although blow drying can help us save time when drying your hair, we recommend air-drying it or letting it dry on its own. Excessive use of heat can also help shorten the lifespan of your hair extension and may cause potential dryness and breakage. When styling using hair irons, make sure to always use heat protectors before applying any forms of heat against the hair.
5. Don’t miss that appointment. Depending on hair extensions technique, never miss your hairdresser appointment. Some extensions need a periodic visit to the salon. Example of which are tape hair extensions. Tape in hair extensions requires re-taping after 6-8 weeks. The tapes tend to move farther from the roots as the hair grows. Also, it is best to get your hairdresser to assess your hair’s condition to help you maintain that healthy hair anytime!
