Getting hair extensions is the easiest and quickest way to achieve your hair goals. You can get the length and volume that you have always wanted in no time. You can go to a hairdressers Gold Coast expert so they can weave weft extensions into your natural hair. Or simply DIY it, and attach them yourself using clip-in extensions.
True enough, extensions are artificial. However, that does not mean you should give them any less care compared to your natural hair. Treat them as you would your normal hair by shampooing, conditioning, and using heat protectant products.
Shampoo and conditioner
Use shampoo to thoroughly clean your hair and get rid of dirt and bad oils. Especially when you have premium human Remy hair (which Hair Candy uses), you will need a shampoo that contains nontoxic formulas to prevent damage. Choose a shampoo product that has no silicon or protein and is preferably paraben-free.
After shampooing, use a conditioner to smoothen and detangle your hair. Conditioning gives back your hair’s shine and body. When conditioning, make sure to cover the roots to the tips of your hair.
It is best to get the “regular” or “for normal hair only” shampoo and conditioner types. This is to make sure that they do not have any harmful ingredients that could cause a reaction and leave the extensions with unwanted textures.
When you have curly or braid extensions, it is recommended to use a leave-in conditioner, as this can protect and hydrate your hair after washing. As the name suggests, leave the conditioner in your hair to keep it soft and smooth throughout the day. If you can unfasten your straight hair extensions, apply the conditioner overnight and comb through the hair the next day to straighten them.
To protect your extensions from the heat and various style tools, use a heat protectant spray. This spray shields the moisture from your natural hair while adding moisture to your extensions, and helps maintain your hair’s shine. Before going out, especially on a warm day, be sure to spray some heat protectant. You can also apply heat protectant before blow-drying your hair and extensions to prevent breakage.
Treat your extensions the way you would usually treat your natural hair—with care. Always remember that beautiful hair is always a healthy one.
