Hair Salon Gold Coast Tips
Now that we know what goes best with our hair extensions (see the previous article) to keep its quality and shine, we should also know which products to avoid. For all your hair extension needs, trust the number one hair salon Gold Coast, Hair Candy.
Bleaching makes hair extensions dry out. It reduces their longevity, especially with Remy human hair extensions, which have already gone through a thorough chemical process. It could also cause the extensions to discolour. If you wish to achieve a different hair colour, you can pick hair extensions with a lighter colour, then dye them with a darker tone, as extensions can only be coloured darker.
Products with alcohol and sulphate
To maintain the health of your hair extensions, choose products that are free from alcohol and sulphate. This is very important to note as these ingredients can make hair dry by removing the hair’s natural oils, which then diminishes the quality of the extensions. Having dry hair also causes matting or tangling.
Check the label in your hair care product if it has the following ingredients:
- Sodium Laureth sulphate
- Sodium lauryl sulphate
- Denatured alcohol
- SD alcohol 40
If you find any of these in your hair care product, it is best to find its more natural counterpart.
Because hair extensions are made from a more delicate material, you will need a more suitable and finer tooth comb than your standard bristled brush. Regular brushes are rough and can break the hair strands in your extensions. With a finer and more delicate brush, you can easily detangle your extensions without worries about shedding or permanent damage to the hair. To maintain its shine and quality, always brush your hair gently.
Some additional tips for hair extension care:
Braid your hair before going to bed to keep it from tangling.
Aside from avoiding harsh chemicals in your hair products, you should avoid bathing in saltwater (as in seawater) or chemically treated water (as in from swimming pools). The chemicals can cause your extensions to wear out or slip out. Don’t forget to regularly visit your expert hair salon Gold Coast, Hair Candy.
