How To Care For Your Hair Extensions
Tips To Make Your Hair Extensions Last Longer
Hair extensions are amazing, especially when you take good care of them.
When you start wearing hair extensions most people don’t realize the maintenance that is required to keep them together. It’s important that you don’t treat your extensions like how you treat your natural hair.
Different types of hair extensions require different attention. For example, you shouldn’t care for human hair extensions, the same way you care for synthetic extensions.
Down below are tips you to know to ensure that you don’t ruin your extensions and lose the investment you put into them!
Lightly wash every so often
Depending on the type of hair extensions you have, you might need to cleanse them lightly every once in a while. I suggest that you wash them gentle every two weeks.
Using shampoo isn’t always necessary however I would recommend you using conditioner as they will help you loosen up all the tangles.
Using conditioner will make sure that the necessary shine of your extensions remain. Whenever you notice that your hair is difficult to brush through, add some conditioner (preferably leave-in-conditioner) to soften the hair and to loosen the tangled ends. When you are brushing your hair make sure you brush it from the tip to the root. Make sure you comb it in sections.
Identify you hair extension type
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when it comes to hair extensions is that they don’t know whether the type of hair they are using is human hair or synthetic.
It’s important that you know which kind of hair you have because they require different methods of maintenance.
Make sure you check where your hair comes from and what material it is made out of.
Don’t wear them for too long
Another important rule about wearing hair extensions is not to wear them for too long.
You can sometimes take them out, cleanse them and reinstall them but only if they are human hair. However the important thing is that you take them out and give them a break.
The longer you wear the extensions, the more difficult it is to remove build-up and clean the extensions.

Most people colour their hair or extensions at some point in their life.

There are many things you have to do correctly to ensure that you don’t damage your hair.
Down below are four fundamental rules about colouring hair.
Choose the correct hair colour
I believe that one of the most difficult parts of colouring your hair is choosing the right colour. This is because there are so many different types of hair colour products. It is crucial that you do some research before you buy any hair colour.
It’s also very important that you look at the ingredients to make sure that you’re not choosing something that is damaging to your hair or you are allergic to.
Always do a patch test before fully dying your hair. This will ensure that if your hair isn’t suited to that type of product then you’ll know before you apply it to all of your hair. Patch tests are a clear and easy way to see if you hair will react well or badly to different types hair products.
Talk to a professional
It’s very important that before you decide to colour your hair that you try and talk to a professional first, especially if you happen to be doing it yourself.
You need to make sure that the professional you consult is someone that has an expertise in hair colouring. This is so you don’t damage your hair as some colouring methods require lots information.
By talking to a professional you will be keeping your hair healthy as you colour it.
Don’t colour if it’s damaged
If your hair is damaged in any way do not colour it.
This is because damaged hair isn’t strong enough to handle the chemicals that are present in hair dye.
It’s important that before you dye your hair make sure you take note of how your hair looks and feels.
The most important thing is that you have fun when colouring your hair. It might take you a few attempts before you get it right.
You have to try and not be hard on yourself if you mess it up or if you do it wrong. If it’s really bad make sure to consult a professional and see if they can fix it.

Why Women Love Hair Extensions ?
Why women love hair extensions
Women of all backgrounds love hair extensions. Most believe that buying good hair extensions is one of the best investments that they have made.
You always hear about how hair extensions damage your hair. However I am writing this blog to tell you that there are ways to ensure that this doesn’t happen to you. There are even certain things that you can do that will help your hair grow and become stronger when wearing extensions.
There are many ways that you can enjoy the lavish look that you get from wearing extensions and also protect your hair.
Down below are 5 reasons why wearing hair extensions are great and why so many women love them.
Protecting your natural hair
It’s great to go out with your natural hair in all its glory. However it’s important that you give your natural hair a break from time to time. This is why women love hair extensions so much. As natural hair isn’t designed for everyday wear and tear it means that sometimes you need something that will help you to still look fabulous but it is actually benefiting your natural hair. This is exactly what wearing extensions does. It helps your hair grow and protects it. To make sure that your hair grows well when you are wearing extensions it’s essential that you make sure that your hair is always moisturized and clean.
Get longer / thicker hair
For those who are looking to enhance their looks without manipulating or having to risk damaging their hair, extensions is the answer. This is because extensions can provide you with thicker and longer hair. Whenever you want a full look all you have to do is use clip-ins or a wig, if you are short of time and want something quick. However if you have more time then I’d recommend extensions as they also provide this look and they lasts longer than clip-ins.
Hair extensions are a great way to prevent heat damage to your natural hair. This is because you will be able to straighten and curl your extension whenever you want but the heat won’t touch your natural hair. If you wear wigs, closures or any extension style that covers all of your hair, you’ll never have to use a straightener or heat product on your real hair! However if you apply an excessive amount of heat to your extensions you will damage your hair extensions.
Managing hair conditions
The way you wear your hair tends to be due to the condition that your hair is in. There are people that have conditions that mean they can’t grow their hair out evenly. Wearing wigs and extensions are great way for them to express themselves and help them feel great.
Try a new style before committing
If you want to try a new hair style before you fully commit to it then hair extensions are perfect for you. As there are many types of hair extensions available, you’ll be able to wear the type of hair you want before you fully decide whether or not it’s the new hairstyle that you are after.
