What are the best ways to care for my hair extensions?
Your aftercare routine always plays a vital role in the longevity of the hair extensions and therefore, it is paramount that you understand how to look after your hair extensions correctly.
Try to separate each bond of your hair extensions with your fingers at least once a day, to ensure they are sitting properly and separately. This will prevent the bonds from tangling at the root and it will make the hair extensions quick and easy to remove at the end of your months of wear.
Washing your extensions properly is another essential thing in the routine of aftercare. Firstly, make sure that you use the recommended range of products by your stylist as she is the person who knows everything about your extensions. Use organic and sulfate free shampoo and warm water to wash the extensions and do it gently in a downward motion using your palms. Do not scrub and remember to rinse between each wash.
Whether you are doing it after washing or after getting up in the morning, always brush your hair gently. It’s better to take time and brush the hair slowly as removing the tangles in a hard way will result in pulling of the extensions. You can even brush before washing to make sure that there is not any natural occurring of tangles due to wind or friction.
Finally, never go to bed with your extensions wet. As wet hair promotes tangling and matting, it is important that your hair is completely dry when you go to sleep. To be sure that your hair is easy to brush in the morning, securing your hair extensions before going to sleep is essential. It not only prevents your hair from getting trapped or pulled during the night but it also makes styling your hair the following day much easier.
