Hair extensions care
If you want to look naturally gorgeous and glam, first of all, you must know how to properly care for hair extensions. Hair extensions often last anywhere between 3 to 6 months to a year or longer, which depends on how often they are worn and how we take care of them. The more you wash and heat your faux hair, the shorter their lifespan will be, so try to keep the washing and using products on your extensions to a minimum. Remember that they need to be kept in moisturized condition and reducing dryness is crucial to prolonging their lifespan because these extensions do not have a natural hydration source like your own hair does.
- Putting in storage your hair extensions
It just takes you a few minutes to store your extensions and you must be really careful in these steps because it decides your quality and lifespan of your extensions. We advise you to brush the set. Make sure your luxury hair extensions are kept in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight (like a closet, cabinet or dresser drawer). Ensure your faux hair totally dry before you put them away to prevent mold and other bacteria from growing (you can use an airtight container or a shoebox to store them)
- Properly Brush Extensions
Make sure that you are always gentle with your extensions (maybe a soft bristle brush or a wide-tooth comb can help). Never brush them if they are wet because it can cause breakage
- Using hair-care production
Always use a sulfate-free shampoo since hair extensions don’t receive the natural nutrients and oils like our own hairdo (skip shampoo but conditioner is ok). Ensure that you are using the proper products by reading the composition table. You can use dry oil, such as coconut or almond to boost the shine of your extensions (just about 2-3 drops per use).
The hair is at its weakest point when it’s wet so try not to dry hair extensions constantly after washing. If you need to use your extensions immediately after washing them, the most important thing is to ensure that you are blow-drying on a cool setting to prevent any heat damage.
Those are golden rules for wearing hair extensions with a good routine, I am sure that you can wear your extensions for months on end and enjoy fuller, thicker, and healthier-looking locks. I really hope that these pieces of advice can help you in life whether you’re new to hair extensions or have used them in the past.
