How To Keep Your Hair Extensions In Tip Top Condition!
Hair extensions can drastically change your look and give you the long lustrous locks you’ve always wanted. But if you want to create the most natural look possible then you will need to go for the very best in hair extensions, and these don’t usually come cheap! You should expect your extensions to last anywhere between 4 and 6 months depending on how well you look after them.
As you have forked out so much money on your new look, you will obviously want them to last for as long as possible. This needn’t be hard work either. If you have chosen the best quality extension hair then you can pretty much treat it like your own hair. However, you will need to take extra care with regards to moisturising your hair as the extension is not attached to your own roots and will not receive the natural oil that your own hair does, therefore it can tend to dry out quite quickly. This can be solved by using moisturising shampoos and conditioners and being careful how much heat you subject your hair to. Your stylist will advise you on the best products to use on your hair when you have extensions put it and you should follow this advice. It is a good idea to invest in a good leave-in conditioner to use on the ends of your hair to keep it soft. But be careful not to over-do it as too much product can cause build-up and tangling. Be aware of using products that use alcohol as these can cause hair to become dry.
Lots of people worry that if they get hair extensions their hair will become tangled and look messy, but this needn’t be the case. If you invest in the highest quality extension hair then this shouldn’t be a problem, it is only when the hair is of a poor quality that tangling often occurs. However, you should aim to brush your hair with a soft bristle brush at least 2 times to remove any tangles. To protect your hair you should start at the ends of your hair and work your way up so as not to put any unnecessary stress on the bonds. You should also keep your hair clean so as to prevent tangling. Hair that has a build up of dirt or sweat is more likely to become tangled than clean hair so make sure you are washing your hair enough. Before washing you should also be sure to remove all the tangles before attempting to wash your hair.
If you go for single strand application then you should not experience any discomfort when sleeping as the bonds are so small and are not bulky at all. However, you should be sure not to sleep with wet hair as this will encourage tangling that will be a nightmare to get rid of in the morning! You should also either tie your hair into a loose ponytail or braid when sleeping so that it does not become tangled overnight.
If you want to change your look when wearing extensions by colouring, perming or chemically straightening, do not attempt this at home. You should always leave this to your stylist. You should also make sure that you attend regular maintenance checks with your stylist to make sure that the bonds are still secure and for any adjustments to be made.
If you follow these simple guidelines then you will get pleasure out of your hair extensions for months to come!
