Hair Care 101: How to Care For Your Hair Extensions

Congratulations on making the most hairtastic decision of your life! Say hello to Insta-worthy selfies, perpetually good hair-days and a more confident you!

Now, let’s talk longevity. Here are the best ways to get the most out of your extensions!

Separate them

Separate the copper tubes from one another. Once you get into the flow of things, it’s only a matter of minutes! This is an essential step that will come in handy when you show up at your maintenance appointment. If you haven’t been doing it religiously, you can find yourself in the chair of a very disappointed stylist when you finally decide to go!

Choose your tools

Hair extensions, especially  Loc system extensions, are to be treated like your babies. They require tender loving care and a gentle hand. Choose your hair brushes and tools carefully, something that won’t damage your newly acquired locks.

Choose your tools

When buying brushes, make sure to use the Hair Extensions of Houston brush that you got in your kit! When buying combs, make sure the bristles are wide. Make sure to always hold on to the length of the extension as you brush the root then hold them like a ponytail to brush out any knots in the length.

Dry before bed

Dry before bed No matter how tired you are, you always remove your makeup, right? Likewise, no matter how tired you are or how late it is, never sleep with wet hair extensions! The reason, you ask? The tossing and turning or even the movement on the pillow can ruffle up your hair and cause it to get all knotted up.

You’d be cursing yourself by morning! Always make sure your hair is dry and knot free before you sleep.

Keep them out of hard water

While it is perfectly acceptable to swim in chlorinated or hard water with extensions in, you might want to make sure your extensions are secure in their place to avoid an embarrassing situation. While it doesn’t happen very often with copper tube extensions, imagine having the time of your life in the pool until you find locks of hair floating around!

After you’re done making merry in the pool or ocean, rinse out all the salt or chlorinated water from your hair to preserve the shine and beauty of your extensions.

Never miss maintenance

It’s all about commitment, ladies! Make a maintenance appointment every 8 to 12 weeks to keep your hair looking fresh and your extensions in top condition.

At a maintenance appointment, the specialist loosens the loc, pushes up the bead of the extension back to the root and secures it once again. Call 832-717-3626 to book your maintenance appointment with us.
