So you have the all-new look, you have the long beautiful mane you always wanted to have, and you feel like a goddess thanks to your longer locks. But they are not going to stay beautiful unless you really make the effort to take care of them. Your Hair extensions might not be your real, but that does not mean you should just neglect them. We’ve got hair extension care tips for you right here, so take the time to check them out.
The most important thing is to avoid extensions and pieces that are heavier than your own hair. If extensions are too heavy, they will damage and break off hair. So hair has to be long and healthy enough to withstand the pressure.
First of all, you should keep your hair clean. Use a mild shampoo and conditioner or better yet, ask your stylist what kind of shampoo would work best your hair and your extensions.
When taking a shower, you should better gradually wet your hair instead of putting on the full pressure of water on your head right away, which could cause a lot of tangling.
Going to the pool or the beach? Feel free to toss around your newly-lengthened tresses while you’re frolicking in the sand or lounging around beside the pool. But when the time comes for you to take a dip, hide your hair under a swimming cap. Chemicals and saltwater can do great damage to your hair. Wash your hair afterward in case some of these seeped into your cap during your swim.
Don’t worry about putting your hair in buns, braids and ponytails. Your hair will still hold up when styled in different ways. Just make sure you use some good clips and bands which won’t stretch out your hair. If you are going to style your hair, do not use too much heat because it could turn your hair frizzy. Wash your hair with lukewarm water and let it air-dry afterwards. If you really need to use a hair dryer, go with ionic dryers for best results.
An important reminder for you would be to stay away from coloring or perming your hair by yourself. As always, consult your stylist before and leave all treatments in his/her hands. Following these simple tips will keep your extensions looking nice and natural. Best of all, you will get to keep your goddess-like locks for a longer period of time!
