3 Mistakes You’re Making With Your Hair Extensions
So you got your extensions recently and you were guaranteed great quality and long-term strength, but you’ve been noticing that they aren’t as shiny as they used to be, or as silky smooth as they were when you got them.
They even, seem a little damaged.
If that story sounds familiar to you, we know how you feel. And even though you’re probably tempted to send an angry email to the supplier or company you got them from, just hear us out.
Human hair extensions are robust and sturdy, just like human hair and can last a very long time if you take care of them well. But at the very same time, they demand attention and care. If you’ve noticed damage, here are some mistakes that you’re probably making,
You’re Washing Them Too Often
Washing them too often will dry out hair extensions since they aren’t getting any ‘food’ directly from your body to compensate and nourish them. On top of this, if you’re not compensating for the hair washes with deep conditioning or masks, they are likely to become even dryer, brittle and easily breakable—just like your natural hair!
To avoid this drying, make sure you’re using a sulfate-free shampoo, and keeping a couple of days between hair washes.
You’re Not Conditioning Them—Or Improperly Conditioning Them
Just like your natural hair, hair extensions made from human hair need conditioning too! If you’ve been skipping out on conditioner, it could be the reason the hair doesn’t feel the same anymore.
To make them silky smooth again, make sure using a high-quality chemical-free conditioner on the hair every time you wash the extensions with shampoo.
You’re Using Too Much Heat
Lastly, straighteners and curling irons are harsh and damaging to the hair and should be kept at a minimal—and even then, should only be used after applying a heat protectant to the hair. If you’re styling your heat every day and not using heat protectants that could also be the reason the hair has started to appear damaged.
To prevent further damage, make sure you’re only using heat when absolutely necessary and not without making sure the hair quality is well-protected.
Love the idea of long hair but you’re stuck with some really short ones that you are fast getting tired of? Don’t worry! A quick and nifty solution is to get hair extensions or even a hair piece. They make easy, efficient and super effective alternatives to naturally long hair—which can take ages of consistent care to grow!
