Hair extensions are an ideal way to instantly transform and upgrade your everyday look in minutes, but they do require appropriate aftercare and maintenance to keep them looking their best. With the correct upkeep, you can be sure that your clip in hair extensions stay in perfect condition with added longevity!
We’ve rounded up some top tips for keeping your LullaBellz Premium Synthetic and Luxury Gold Human Hair Extensions in tip-top condition. From storage and brushing techniques to the best products for aftercare, we’ve covered all the essential steps you need to take to ensure that your clip in hair extensions stay looking healthy and feeling brand new with each wear.
Keeping your hair extensions in an overall good condition is essential for maintaining their quality and longevity. Proper storage of your hair extensions is key to ensure that they look and feel silky-soft to the touch every time you wear them. Below, we’ve entailed some top tips for storing your clip in hair extensions to ensure that they remain in the best condition and to increase their longevity!
Brushing Hair Extensions and Storage
Firstly, it’s important to invest in a good quality Satin Storage Bag. Satin is a well-known fabric that helps to prevent the hair from becoming dry and brittle due to exposure to air, dust, and other elements. Ever heard of the Satin Pillowcase trend for maintaining your natural hair overnight and preventing damage? This works in exactly the same way with our hair extensions, too! It also helps keep the metal clips on the extensions secure and prevents them from rusting or tarnishing over time.
Secondly, be sure not to leave the extensions exposed or thrown to one side when you’re not wearing them, as this can cause them to become damaged or tangled over time. It’s best practice to store your hair extensions safely away from direct sunlight and other sources of heat such as radiators or hairdryers. Our Satin Storage Bag is a must-have product to guarantee long-lasting and silky soft hair extensions.
Brushing Hair Extensions
Next, to keep your hair extensions in the best condition when wearing them, it's crucial that you maintain the correct brushing techniques. Now, you're probably thinking "Why is brushing hair extensions correctly so important?". It's actually a key step in the upkeep and maintenance of wearing clip-ins. Hair Extensions can become tangled, dry or 'bushy' if not brushed properly, or if using incorrect techniques. Our Premium Synthetic Hair Extensions do require additional upkeep compared to our natural hair and Human Hair Extensions due to the different materials they derive from, so it's super important that you're using the correct brushes and techniques to maintain their silk-soft texture and style.
Our LullaBellz Detangling Brush is the ideal solution for eliminating pesky tangles, knots and diminishing frizz in hair extensions, however more importantly is the brushing technique. Begin by holding the weft firmly at the top, and brush through the hair starting at the bottom sections and gradually work upwards until you reach the top of the hair and are able to brush through the entire weft without the brush becoming stuck. We highly advise against brushing in one go from top-bottom as this can encourage further knotting or tangling in the middle of the wefts (which can sometimes be super tricky to get out).
Another must-have brush is the LullaBellz Paddle Brush. This product features an air-cushioned base for comfortable styling and brushing, with gentle bristles that glide through your hair and hair extensions without pulling or snagging. To maintain a regular hair brushing routine, we recommend to gently brush through the hair before, during and after wear.
Washing Hair Extensions
Last but certainly not least, the next step to maintaining the condition of your hair extensions is to upkeep a regular hair care washing routine on them.
Keeping your hair extensions clean is essential for their longevity and to maintain their shape, bounce and style. We’ve rounded up our top products to use when washing your hair extensions correctly and to keep them in pristine condition!
Using a mild shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for hair extension aftercare is essential, as well as using a deep conditioning mask once or twice a month. Additionally, it's also vital to remember not to rub or scrub the extensions too harshly when washing them, as this can cause further damage and tangling.
