Many ladies make the mistake of not taking care of their hair extensions like they do their normal hair. It’s not necessarily that they don’t know how to care for hair extensions, but it’s more of not knowing the consequences of not doing so. Whether you prefer to use natural hair extensions or the synthetic version, taking care of them will ensure you have the best hairstyle you desire day-in and day-out. Here is a quick guide of things you should and shouldn’t do when it comes to caring for hair extensions.
Caring For Natural Hair Extensions
With natural hair extensions, nothing is more important than using a great sulfate free shampoo to wash them. This shampoo will help protect your natural hair and the extensions the best possible way. An overlooked aspect is not applying conditioner after every wash. Your natural hair produces oils, making it unnecessary to condition every time. But hair extensions don’t receive that benefit, so it’s important to keep them moisturized as much as possible to prevent damage and to keep them looking natural for the maximum amount of time.
Caring For Synthetic Hair Extensions
Some synthetic hair extensions act very similarly to natural hair extensions. If you have a lower quality synthetic extension, avoid brushing them and using heat on them. For higher quality synthetic extensions, you can use a little bit of heat and a gentle brush stroke with a soft brush. Try not to be as intense with your washing sessions and ask your stylist for the best shampoo and conditioner for extensions.
Why You Need to Care For Your Hair Extensions
It doesn’t take much to ruin hair extensions if you don’t care for them properly. Sometimes you may not see the negative effects right away, but you could risk making them look unnatural, lose color and become permanently damaged. Learning how to care for hair extensions before you get them will prepare you for buying the products you need and get you thinking about changing your hair care routine. If you’re going to invest in hair extensions anyway, you might as well take the proper steps to ensure they look great for as long as possible.
