Hair Extension Care Tips

Tangled hair, bald spots and the horrors of hair extensions can all disappear, provided you follow a few simple tips to take care of them. Hair extensions should be no problem at all, so enjoy your gorgeously thick, long hair for years to come.

Here are my top tips for keeping your hair extensions looking their best.

  1. Purchase the right brush. A stylish approved brush is ideal so that you do not have to tug the extensions too harshly. Try a soft-toothed brush that is bigger than your normal brush. A soft bristle brush or pro Looper brush works fabulously.

  2. Got the right brush? Now, you can use it to take care of your hair extensions easily. Brush your hair each morning to avoid tangles and matting.

  3. You do not want to constantly figgit with your hair. Separate each strands around the bonds with your fingers will lengthen the life of your extensions.

  4. Never crunch your hair in a bun or knot as the hair extensions need to follow their natural downward direction or they might become irrevocably tangled.

  5. Loosely tie your hair behind before going to bed so that it does not get tangled as you toss and turn in your sleep or during any other bedtime activities.

  6. Always braid your hair before working out or you will have knotted sweaty mass when you leave the gym. There is no point in having a hot body if your hair is in a hot mess.

  7. You can shampoo and towel dry your hair, but be sure not to rub the hair too ruggedly. Just squeeze the excess water instead of ringing it.

  8. A cat fight is rare but just to say avoid any hair pulling or tugging, even when getting a blow dry, as it weakens both your natural hair and the bonds

  9. First, dry the bond and surrounding hair to extend their life span. Curling irons or straighteners can be kept away from them as they are likely to melt.

  10. Visit your stylist every six to eight weeks for professional blow outs, trims and de-tangling

  11. Your clip ins does not get soiled as much as your natural hair, but that does not mean you are to wash them rarely. Washing is important for the upkeep of hair extensions. Firstly detangle them before shampooing then use a good shampoo and thirdly remember to take it take it slow. Many  hair extension clinics in NJ will vouch for this.

  12. A nourishing leave-in conditioner is an ideal follow up for your hair-extensions maintenance routine. Spray it in the downward motion to brush out any remaining tangles and it is done.
