What To Avoid Once You Have Hair Extensions

Congratulations! You finally got the gorgeous hair extensions for short hairthat you’ve always dreamt of getting. Did you know that there are a bunch of haircare mistakes that can ruin your beautiful strands? It’s important that you stay aware of products, techniques, and ingredients that you need to avoid now that you have copper lock hair extension system installed on your head.

Here’s everything you need to know:

Avoid hair products with silicone

Many hair products, including shampoos and conditioners contain silicone to help smooth out the hair shaft and give a glossy, healthy look. However, these smoothening properties can make your extensions fall out. You should also stay away from products that use sulfates and parabens since they dry the hair out very fast, and extensions don’t have the same benefit of getting moisturized through natural oils from your scalp as your natural hair, ruining them even faster.

Don’t leave your hair open while sleeping

Letting your luxurious new strands of hair down before bed might make you feel like a princess who’s laying down for her royal slumber, but it’s not the best choice for your extensions. Tossing and turning in your sleep overnight will cause tangles to form in your extensions that are difficult to brush out without taking out a few hairs.

Brush your hair gently as you move from the bottom to the top and create a loose braid before going to bed. It’s even better if you can use a silk wrap around your hair, or a silk pillowcase to decrease friction and breakage while laying down.

Avoid over-brushing

Speaking of brushing your hair, it’s important to use special brushes that are specifically meant for brushing through extensions. We’ve all heard about brushing your hair to perfection before bed to ensure a healthy shine, but this advice doesn’t work that well when it comes to hair extensions. Over-brushing your hair will just pull out the strands from their seal.
