Hair extensions are glorious. We can add length to our hair or a beautiful streak of color. They can allow us to tie short hair in a ponytail and cover the bad cut. Proper care of extensions ensures they'll be around for a while.
Here are some tips for Caring your virgin hair extensions.
Brushing before washing to ensure there are no natural occurring tangles caused by wind or friction. (Use a soft-bristled brush, Start at the bottom, as you would with your natural hair, detangling that area first before you move up to work on the top sections).
Wash with Moisturizing Hair Care Products
Wet your human hair extensions gently to prevent tangling using a downward motion when shampooing and rinsing them. A wide-toothed comb is recommended in case they start to knot but you must be super-gentle. Wash the hair extensions less than 2 times a week with moisturizing hair care products. This will keep the moisture in from shampooing while at the same time not drying them out from over-shampooing. Wavy and curly hair needs more moisturizing than straight hair.
Once a week, carefully put your extensions in lukewarm water and apply a bit of conditioner all over. Conditioning your hair is very important to keep it soft and manageable. You can also use products like gel and hairspray to keep the curls in place, but make sure to wash your hair and not leave in these products in for a long time.
Keep Ends Trimmed
As careful as you are, your human-hair extensions will most likely get split ends. To avoid letting the damage move up the hair shaft, trim the ends every 6-10 weeks. You can do it yourself using salon scissors, or go to a hairstylist.
Let Them Dry Naturally
Carefully put your extensions in lukewarm water and apply a bit of conditioner all over. Leave for around 20 minutes then rinse and let dry naturally
Blow Dry Carefully
A blow dryer will damage them if used too much. If necessary, set a low-heat setting to dry bonds and surrounding hair first then style/dry the rest of your hair as usual.
