As with everything else that concerns your hair, there are rules. How to wash your hair, what products to avoid, how to identify the right shampoo for your hair, and even rules of hair maintenance. It is also the same with hair extensions. If you’re going to use hair extensions, you need to follow some ground rules. These rules will ensure that you get the best out of the extension, manage it properly, and keep it looking beautiful and new for a long time.
Without further ado, let’s get into it!
Do’s of Hair Extensions
Always Wash Your Hair
You must keep your extension clean, whether it is a clip-in or sew-in. The hair extension is similar to your natural hair and also needs attentive care. However, you must wash it carefully to avoid drying it out and leaving the strands brittle, and avoid over-washing.
When you need to wash your hair extension, use a mild shampoo that won’t cause damage. Ask your hairstylist to be sure how frequently you need to wash your extension.
Brush and Detangle frequently
To keep your hair extension new and beautiful, and to get it to last for a long time, you need to brush it frequently with a good brush. A good brush is one with wide bristles that can detangle your hair and leave it feeling smooth.
You should also brush your hair thoroughly and properly after applying shampoo before rinsing, and again after the hair is dry to avoid matting and tangles.
Visit a Salon for your installation/maintenance
No matter how good you have at managing your hair yourself, you need to visit the salon to get your hair installed by an expert to avoid mistakes. You also need to get professional tips on styling and hair care. You can go in periodically and allow your hair stylist to maintain your extensions.
Allow your hair to rest
No matter how much you love hair extensions and how safe they are for your hair, your hair needs a breather often and again. Even the best extensions can damage your hair and scalp if they are used too frequently. So, take breaks from hair extensions often and allow your hair to rest.
Don’ts of Hair Extensions
Don’t buy the wrong Hair Extension
By wrong hair extension, we mean the hair extension that doesn’t match your hair color and texture. The hair extension is supposed to increase the length and fullness of your hair as naturally as possible, so it should match your natural hair color and texture perfectly.
The quality of the hair is also very important. Bad quality hair will tangle, become brittle and will not look seamless so it is worth investing in good hair extensions that will also last longer in general. We offer some types of hair in our store but mainly related with the installation services we offer. If you want to buy any other technology or hair piece with the best quality in the market then go to our sister company Azul Hair Collection.
Don’t use Harsh Products
When maintaining your hair extensions, you need to avoid using shampoos, conditioners, and other products such as hairsprays and gels that can cause harm to your hair extension and even your natural hair.
Always ensure to use natural products for washing, conditioning, and styling your hair. Stay away from products containing alcohol, parabens, triclosan, and sodium lauryl sulfate.
Don’t Use Too Much Heat
Be careful with heat styling tools and avoid using heat too frequently as it can damage your hair extension terribly. When you need to, always use heat protection first and then maintain low heat settings.
With these tips, your hair extensions will last for a long time and look great throughout!
