blog post for you. We share things you need to do when taking care of hair
Washing Your Hair
Washing your hair extension can be tricky, especially if you
aren’t used to the process. Hair extensions will require a more gentle approach
than you have used before when washing your hair. So, here are our tips to
consider when washing your hair extensions;
Brush through your hair first to remove any
When washing your hair, make sure that the water
flows the same way as your hair. This is because washing your hair upside down,
over the side of the bath with a shower will cause tangles.
Remember that you have more hair and therefore
more shampoo will be needed. Lather the shampoo with splashes of water onto
your hair. Stroke the shampoo into your hair, do not scrub it in.
If conditioning your hair apply it to the mid-lengths
and ends only. Leave the conditioner to soak in for a few minutes.
Rinse your hair as normal. But remember once
again that you have more hair so more rinsing will be required.
Avoid wrapping your hair in a towel as this puts
pressure on the extensions and roots. Instead squeeze and pat your hair
Brushing Your Hair
When you are brushing and styling your hair regularly each
day the extensions can quickly looked long lived. If you can get into good
habits, some of which we have listed below, then your hair extensions will stay
looking fabulous for longer.
Brush your hair every morning from mid length to
the ends. This will help avoid roots and bonds tangling.
When brushing wet hair, be patient. We recommend
smooth strokes, starting from the tips and working your way up. Starting at the
root will tighten tangles and knots in your hair.
Make sure you brush your hair before bed. This
will get rid of any lingering and stubborn tangles that can get worse during
Always have a brush in your car or handbag. You
never know when wind or rain will affect your hair.
