Taking care of hair-extensions is an ongoing process, Ladys , the results of which depend on you, your efforts and knowledge as well as your hair stylist So, before you decide to spend a serious amount of money, thinking that’s all it takes to have gorgeous hair, take a look at these helpful and easy tips on hair extensions maintenance:
1: BRUSH, BRUSH, BRUSH
Most important as your fist step , Brushing you hair and extensions
Brushing your hair extensions regulary , 3 to 4 times a day and owning a proper detangling hair extension Brush is necessary and you should form an habit, as brushing your teeth fist thin in the morning
A soft bristle brush pro, or a Looper brush will be perfect for that job. Helping you detangle your hair without damaging and pulling hair out of the extensions.
You ask yourself : how do i brush properly my hair and the extensions?check out my video
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.
Be gentle with you extensions too, as pulling will cause serious breakage, turning your gorgeous, shiny clip-ins into a frizzy, dingy-looking mess no Lady would like to look like that . Usually i do not recommend brushing your Hair when its wet, since hair easy stretches in wet condition and it will frizz and break easier
2: WASH CAREFULLY(watch video here)
Your clip-ins probably won’t get dirty as often as your natural hair does, although that doesn’t mean you don’t have to wash them at all .
In fact, washing in crucial for the proper maintenance of hair extensions and there are a couple of rules to follow to make sure they continue on looking good.
Fist : Detangle before shampooing with your detangling brush pro.
Second: Use a good shampoo
Third: Be careful ! Wet your extensions bit by bit to prevent tangling using a downward motion(from the roots to the ends ) when shampooing and rinsing them.Rubbing can cause the hair to tangle . Of course can you follow up with your loop brush , or detangling brush , in case they start to knot but you must be super-gentle.
3. CONDITION YOUR HAIR AND EXTENSIONS (watch this video )
A nice, nourishing conditioner will be a perfect follow up for your hair-extensions maintenance routine.
Make sure before you apply the conditioner, your shampoo is good rinsed of and the hair is clean. Use conditioner after each time you wash your extensions, and you can apply the conditioner in the same way ,as your shampoo,( do not apply conditioner on your hair extensions root area, this can cause to loosen the bonds of your extensions) , brush out any remaining tangles carefully. After, rinse your conditioner out very well, and dry your hair gently with a towel. Do not rub! use downward motion from the roots to the ends .
4. LET THEM DRY NATURALLY(watch here the video)
Easier said than done, especially if we’re talking about non-removable hair pieces, but with clip-in hair-extensions, I highly recommend it. Place the hair-extensions on a save place and let them dry overnight, next day you can heat style them again, or just put them in ,in there natural way. Its better to avoid heat, but if you have to rush , and time is not an option in this moment, blow dry your hair and hair-extensions very carefully, use a low-heat setting to dry bonds and surrounding hair , use a soft gentle brush and with downwards motions.
7. STORE WITH CARE(watch video Here)
Your clip-ins, wigs or quick weaves need to be stored with love when unused!
Only that way you can rest and be assured, there won’t be any unpleasant surprises next time, when you decide to put them on.
Clean, condition, dry and detangle them first then place them in the Hairoverheel Storage Hanger bag , it looks sexy and its the best and esaiest way to store your beloved hair-extensions
After all, you don’t want to check on them after some time to find a moldy, discolored, messy bundle – don’t you?
In case , you don’t wear clip-ins and your gorgeous locks can’t be removed before sleep or intense physical activity, you can always sweep them back in a ponytail.
Make it a low one, in case you won’t be doing much more than just sleeping to avoid not only tangles but creases too, or opt for a high pony while exercising to limit their exposure to sweat.
Also taking care of your hair extensions in summer needs to include a serious cap-wearing habit as chlorine and salt aren’t your hair’s best friends.
9. ASK YOUR SUPPLIER ABOUT THE QUALITY OF YOUR EXTENSIONS (read our Blog , where is the hair of your extensions from)
Are your extensions made of synthetic or human hair?
This is one inportant thing you must know for sure as maintenance of hair extensions differs significantly depending on the material.
Human hair can be brushed, straightened, curled, even re-dyed should you decide to change your hair color while synthetic strands usually can’t benefit from such things.
Some types of synthetic extensions can be styled using heated appliances although the general rule still says you can’t dye synthetic hair nor you should brush it too much.
10. BE GENTLE WITH YOUR HAIR
Harsh pulling, wringing or a habit of knotting your hair tightly with no respect for its texture is a no-go if you want your extensions to last long!
Furthermore, this might even damage your real hair, causing the bonded length to break off and ruining your chances of having beautiful longish hair after the extensions are removed.
11. VISIT YOUR STYLIST REGULARLY
Even the best quality extensions need upkeep which means that caring for hair extensions also involves regular trips to the salon for a pro checkup.
Your hair can look absolutely gorgeous up to six whole months if you decide to follow the rules and check back with your stylist every 5 to 7 weeks for professional, thorough detangling, styling, chop and eventual re-fitting.
12. STAY_AWAY FROM ALCOHOL-BASED PRODUCTS
Alcohol based products are not the best ones to be using on your hair extensions as they will dry them out, matte them down and make your hair pieces prone to tangling.
if you apply a lot of alcohol-based products and failing to rinse them out fully and in good time can weaken the bonds and cause a lot of shedding
