Expert Tips for Long-lasting Extensions
Importance of Care:
Gentle Detangling: Start from the bottom and work your way up when brushing your extensions. Use a wide-toothed comb or a specialized extension brush to avoid tugging and minimize breakage.
Wash with Care: Use a sulfate-free shampoo to cleanse your hair extensions. Gently massage the shampoo into the hair, avoiding excessive rubbing or tangling. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to remove any residue, and follow up with a nourishing conditioner.
Avoid Heat Damage: Limit the use of heat styling tools on your extensions. When heat is necessary, apply a heat protectant spray before styling to shield the hair from damage. Opt for low to medium heat settings. If your extensions are bonded or taped, avoid direct heat on the bonds or tapes.
Before bed, gently brush your hair and tie it in a loose braid or ponytail to prevent tangling and matting while you sleep. Use a silk or satin bonnet or scarf to protect your extensions while you sleep. If you prefer not to wear a bonnet or scarf, you should consider using a silk or satin pillowcase to minimize friction.
