Hair extensions are a fabulous addition to your hair, they can add extra volume and length, change up your hair colour or even help disguise hair disasters! Whatever the reason you wear hair extensions, it’s important to look after both your hair and the hair extensions themselves so you can look fabulous for longer! We’ve put together some top tips on looking after your clip-in hair extensions.
1. Brush them and your hair each night and morning
You would be surprised at the number of people who don’t brush their hair properly- make sure you’re not one of them! Brushing your hair before and after using hair extensions will not only ensure your hair doesn’t get tied up in knots, but it also means your hair extensions will be tangle free and last longer. Take some time once you’ve removed them to show them some TLC, and don’t leave them curled up in a ball.
2. Use low heats when styling
Regardless of whether you’re wearing synthetic hair extensions or human hair extensions, it is important you don’t sizzle your hair, it’s not a good look! Our synthetic hair extensions can be heated to 180ºC and this is a reasonable amount to avoid harming the hair extensions and your own hair. If you do style your hair often with heat products, make sure you look after your hair and take steps not to burn it. Overuse of heat products can damage and dry out not only your hair extensions but your real hair too, so take great care of both.
3. Wash your hair with mild shampoo
Just like our real hair, hair extensions can pick up dirt in day-to-day use, so it’s important to keep them clean, especially if you are wearing them regularly. When washing your hair extensions, purchase a mild shampoo. Try and find a shampoo that’s been specifically formulated for synthetic hair. However, if you are struggling to find a shampoo for synthetic hair, then a mild shampoo will work just as well too.
If you follow these tips, then your hair extensions will continue to look just as amazing as you! Check out our range of fabulous, high-quality real and synthetic hair extensions to begin transforming your look and your selfies.
