If you’ve recently gotten your permanent hair extensions installed, we understand that you’re confused and need a little help when it comes to maintenance.
Taking care of your hair extensions may seem like a complicated process but trust us, it’s not! In fact, you only need to follow a few simple steps and create a hair care regime that works best for you.
Since we’ve had a lot of people asking us about how they can maintain their beautiful extensions, we decided to create a blog post about it!
So, here’s what you can do:
Don’t Brush Your Extensions All The Time
First things first, you need to keep in mind that you don’t need to brush your hair extensions all the time. Don’t brush them twice or thrice a day.
That’s because hair extensions aren’t like human hair and need a little bit more TLC. Secondly, brushes are harsh on the hair and scalp. They can damage the fibers of your extensions quickly by pulling and tugging on them.
Instead, use a tooth comb because it’ll be gentle on your hair and scalp. The only time you should brush your extensions is when you want to get rid of tangles and knots.
Use Paraben-Free Shampoos and Conditioners
We can’t stress this enough! We always advise our clients to use a paraben-free conditioner and shampoo.
The harsh chemicals in standard shampoos and conditioners will damage your roots and destroy the fibers of your extensions. Moreover, they’ll make the color of your hair and extensions bleed.
Instead, go with organic shampoo and conditioner that’s made especially for hair extensions. We recommend using the Kevin Murphy product line as it’s specifically designed for hair extensions.
It’s free of sulfates, parabens, and other harmful chemicals, ensuring your extensions don’t incur any damage.
Come In For a Consultation Every Three Months
Yes, that’s right! You should come in for a consultation every three months, so Brenda can best guide you about how you can care for your extensions. She has more than 30 years of experience in the original hair–loc system and permanent hair extensions!
She can also reinstall your extensions properly, so you don’t have to worry about them getting damaged over time.
