Caring for your clip in deluxe Hair Extensions is important to keep them in good condition. This way, you can use them for the longest time possible. Also, with excellent maintenance, your hair extension will look natural like they are actually part of your original hair. Here are some ways to keep them in perfect condition.
- Before you maintain your hair extension, make sure that you keep your hair and scalp clean. When washing the hair extension especially when applying conditioner, do not include the root area. Wetting the root area will weaken the bond and will loosen the strands. After using the hair extension, do not wash your hair immediately. You need to wait for at least 48 hours although it will depend on the type of hair extension application employed. For clip in hair extensions, you can easily wash your hair since your hair and scalp were not subjected to adhesives or tightening and other process.
- Avoid applying heat to your clip in deluxe Hair Extensions. Heat is the worst enemy of hair extensions. Exposure to heat shortens the life span of your hair extension. As much as possible, dry your hair naturally or with natural air. Avoid using curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers.
- Use brush with soft bristles for brushing your hair. Gently remove the tangles from the bottom then work your way up. Always brush the hair extension downwards.
- Choose gentle hair products. While your natural hair can easily recover when exposed to harsh products, clip in hair extensions cannot do it on their own. This is the reason why you need to maintain it but you should use products that are formulated for sensitive hair. Avoid using conditioner or shampoo with alcohol because they dry the hair and scalp.
If you want to perm or color your clip in deluxe Hair Extensions, it is best to let the professionals handle it. Avoid doing it on your own because hair extensions require special attention and it is best for hair specialists to do it for you.
