Use Recommended Shampoo and Conditioner
After having your extensions put in, did your salon’s stylist recommend a certain brand or type of shampoo and conditioner? If your stylist did, then you should remember to use what was recommended. There are several types of hair extensions and each type will require a specific type of care to ensure the bonds stay intact.
The ingredients in the shampoo and conditioner you use will have an impact on not only your extensions but your natural hair as well.
Dry Your Extensions Before Bed
Your hair is most fragile when wet. You don’t want to go to bed with wet extensions. Sleeping with wet extensions can cause them to fall out, tangle, or even become matted.
Instead, try washing your hair in the mornings to ensure it’ll be dry before bed. Otherwise, you’ll need to gently dry your hair using a microfiber towel and a warm or cool setting on your blowdryer.
Use a Gentle Brush
When you brush your extensions, you want to remain as gentle as possible. If you fail to brush your hair with care, then you can begin to see your extensions falling out. Find a comb or a brush with soft bristles.
Then, remember to brush your hair starting at the ends and slowly working your way up to the scalp.
Keep Bonds Separated
The bonds on your extensions can become tangled at times. To prevent this from happening, spend a few minutes each day separating the bonds and removing any tangles. You don’t need a special tool to do this.
You only need your fingers and a few minutes. If you remember to do this each day, the process will become simpler. You should also consider scheduling conditioning treatments on a regular basis to help keep your extensions healthy.
Your Hair Extensions Are Counting on You
Once you have your hair extensions in, you’ll feel like a brand new person. You can be whoever you want to be with your new hair! The next step is to simply care for them using the tips listed above.
