Getting hair extensions at the salon is an excellent idea. The professional who puts in your extensions will make sure that they look great and feel comfortable for you. However, in order to keep your hair extensions looks just as great as they do at the salon, it is important that you take good care of them. Here are three great tips for caring for your hair extensions.
Use Products That Are Sulfate-Free
One thing that you can do to make sure that your hair extensions not only last longer, but also look great, is to use products on your hair that are free of sulfate. Products that contain sulfate are much harsher, and they tend to strip your hair extensions of the natural protection that they have. This can leave them drier and more brittle.
Brush, Brush, Brush
It is very important that you take the time to brush your extensions out multiple times a day. If your hair extensions become tangled, they are going to be much harder to brush out and you are much more likely to damage them when you are brushing them. You also want to make sure you use a brush that is gentle on your hair, but strong enough to get the tangles out.
Sleep With Your Hair Braided
A great way to avoid getting tangles when you’re sleeping is to braid your hair. Taking the time to put your hair in a quick braid can save you a great deal of time brushing out your hair in the morning and it can also help to extend the life of your extensions. This can be a simple three strand braid down your back and doesn’t require anything fancy.
