Are you aware of how crucial it is to take proper care of one’s hair extensions during sleep? Yep, bedtime hair care is equally as vital as daytime haircare! That’s because extensions are prone to damage due to turning or tossing actions that you make during your sleep. Hair extensions can be damaged due to improper bed routines as well, such as falling asleep with your hair extensions still wet, a move that can cause tangled hair.
Do understand that if you’re looking to have natural-looking and healthy extensions, you’ll have to spend some extra effort and time for maintaining them properly. Here are some invaluable bedtime hair care routines, which can extend the life & look of all your beloved hair extensions:
Try to avoid matting and tangles by braiding your hair or making it into a ponytail. In case your extensions have ample length and can be braided easily, simply go for it! Just ensure that the braid is slightly loose. In case your hair is not long enough, ponytails are a good alternative. Just remember – Use only those hair ties that are snag-free. Whenever possible, tuck the ponytail under in order to prevent further tangling and friction.
You might also consider making use of a satin/silk pillowcase or silk scarf. As a matter of fact, the slippery and smooth texture of silk can work wonders in reducing friction and enhance your extensions.
Air dry occasionally – You shouldn’t ever go to sleep while your hair extensions are wet. However, instead of simply applying heat several times in a week to your extensions, you can choose to shower a few hours before & let your extensions air-dry for a while before you go to sleep. Your hair extensions will be grateful to you and you won’t have to work extra before you go to bed either. It’s a win-win.
Use hair masks and deep conditioners – These products can help retain the shiny quality and smoothness of your hair extensions. Research properly and see which products have been recommended by experts. Use them before retiring for the day. You’ll wake up with a great head of hair, we promise you! You can use Milbon Hair Extensions Conditioner as a deep hair conditioner by applying it to your hair for between ten to fifteen minutes.
By following these simple yet effective tips, you’ll be able to savor your stunning hair extensions for a longer period of time. These tips don’t take much time to execute either. Along with these tips, also ensure that your hair is brushed carefully using an extensions brush during the day & before you braid your hair. But do not over brush, since that can increase friction and cause breakage.
