Are you looking for ways to extend the lifespan of your hair extension? Hair extensions are artificial hairs that are used to increase the length of human hair. They are integrated with the natural hair and with proper care and maintenance can last for a very long period of time.
First of all, visit a hair salon or barbershop that is well-known and provides high-quality services to make sure that you will get the best hair extensions. Here are some other tips that you use to make your hair extension last longer:
Cleaning Hair Extensions
You can clean your hair extension using the shampoo that is used with your real hair. You need to, however, check the specific instructions that are provided by the manufacturer. In most cases, a wig shampoo or any other mild shampoo should do the work. In addition, when it is clean, only air dry the hair extension, as other artificial methods of drying the hair extension may damage it. You should clean the hair extension using cold water to shampoo it. This goes a long way to prevent matting and also removes tangles on the foundation of the integration with your real hair.
Handle It Gently
The biggest secret to extending the life of your hair extensions is by treating it like natural hair, but with more gentleness. When hair extensions are being manufactured, they are taken through various rigorous processes so as to get uniform texture and color. If you do not handle it properly, it will start to lose some of these properties.
It is always recommended that you use a mild shampoo and if you want to minimize tangling, you can use a light conditioner. Avoid burning hair extensions with a blow dryer or brushing them heavily. They do not have the capacity to grow back and remember that hair extensions are expensive so treat them nice.
Removal of Hair Extensions
If you have hair extensions that are sewn in, and need to remove them, you should cut the thread that joins them to your hair. When cutting the thread, you should be careful so as not to cut your hair or even the hair extension. You should also be careful so as not to let the sewn-in extension for so long as they may mat or tangle around the thread. The invisible hair weave integration seems to be a lot easier to remove, compared to the other options.
Bonded Hair Extensions
Bonded hair extensions are attached to the human hair with special bonding glue. When you have them installed, you need to handle them with care, just like other extensions. When the time comes and you need to remove them, there are special removers that are used by experts. In most cases, these removers are made of oil, which forces the bonding adhesive to dissolve easily.
When you have bonded hair extensions, you can have them shampooed to keep them clean. The only thing that you need to do is observe caution so that you will not affect the strength of the extension or cause the bonding glue to break.
With these simple tips, you will certainly extend the lifespan of your hair extension and enjoy your money’s worth.
