When you wash your hair extensions remember to use a high moisturising shampoo and conditioner. Because your extensions are not connected to your scalp they don’t receive the natural oil your real hair does. Lack of nutrients and moisture will very quickly show the difference between your natural hair and hair extensions. To get the very most out of your extensions ensure you take extra special care of the products you use.
If you use heating and styling tools remember to add a heat protector or added moisturiser to compensate.
Less is more when it comes to healthy looking hair extensions – the less product and trauma you put your extensions through the longer they will last.
If you are located on the Gold Coast it is particularly important to ensure the moisture is kept up at all times. With such harsh, sunny and dry conditions, extended periods in the ocean or pool water it can quickly dry out the extensions drastically reducing their lifespan. When swimming or participating in high movement activities try to tie back your hair and wash soon after removing any tangles and foreign chemicals.
Your natural hair will also be far healthier with all the extra TLC.
