What about maintaining them?

After changing from short hair to long hair with the use of hair extensions, you have to know how to maintain it. To do so, you will need the following; a dry shampoo, extension brush, shine spray, conditioner, a conditioning repair mask and a sulphate free shampoo. If you are like us who styles our hair regularly, then the following instructions will be of benefit to you so you know how to preserve and extend the lifespan of your hair extension;

Our natural hair is attached to our scalp and is constantly nourished by the natural oil the scalp produces. Unlike the hair extensions that have no source of natural oil, we recommend the use of shine spray more specifically after styling is done with hot tools. While dry shampoo will help ensure the bonds of the tape remain dry and free of oil. With the regular production of oil from the scalp, there is a tendency of this oil to break down to the bonds pf the tape, thereby causing the extensions to slip. Although this is majorly dependent on how oily your scalp is, as well as how often you get your hair washed. We advise the use of dry shampoo during washing. And extension brush is best suited for hair extensions because they come with loops that easily untangle the hair. Sulphate free shampoo and conditioner are in charge of maintaining the quality and beauty of the hair extension. For those who love to swim or are always styling their hair, using a deep conditioning mask is highly recommended. This will help prevent dryness, breakage and even damage.
