How to care?
Get an extension brush. This is vital, you will literally rip your head of hair out if you try and brush them continuously with a normal brush, so seriously get one, they are only about $15 and worth every cent.
This is brushing continued you could say - because it is hella important to never brush your roots. Why? Because this is where your extensions are bonded to your head and you will damage them and potentially pull them out if you brush them. Instead, finger your hands through the roots to keep them from tangling and then hold your hair in a fist just under your ear and then brush the ends. By holding your hair you are taking pressure off the bonds, therefore, keeping them tight.
Choose a natural or extension friendly shampoo. Stay away from any shampoo with Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) as this often damages and corrodes the bonds.
When in the shower, turn the temperature to cold just before you get out and give your hair a blast of the cold shower, this will help keep your bonds once again nice and tight and close your pores too. *NEVER wash your hair over the bath as all the bonds will tangle. Always wash your hair standing up.Wash the hair with mild conditioning and shampoo in warm water, 2-3 times every week.
Never condition the roots as you'll cause the bonds to unravel over time, instead, the condition only the ends, this is all you need anyways.
Always fully dry your bonds, you can leave the ends dry naturally if you want, but it is very important to keep the roots bone dry. Another tip is to put your hair dryer on the cold setting, as it is once again, you guessed it, better for the bonds.
7. At night
When sleeping, a very good tip I learned is to plait your hair before you go to bed, not only does this give your hair a fab beachy wave when you wake up, but it also keeps your hair from tangling. Success.
8. Store Your Extensions
When you’re not wearing your luxuries, store them away properly. L for P sells cute storage bags that can be hung in your closet. This will protect the hair from tangling up or getting mixed up with your belongings. The storage bag is also great for traveling.
9. Hair spray or styling
Hairspray is OK, just remember to properly wash it out the next day!
The temperature during the crimping or straightening process needs to be lower than 180℃.
When you get a new set of extensions, especially your first set ever, it is normal for them to feel a little itchy. Often it's just your head getting used to them and sometimes it could be because you need to give them a wash. Obviously, if itching persists, go to your hair technician but usually, it is normal!
- Do not wash your hair until 48 hours after the extensions have been installed.
- Brush dry the hair out completely with an extension brush before entering the shower and before bedtime.
- Wash every 2 days or less and do not wash your hair upside down. Do not scrub hair aggressively. Do not get shampoo or conditioner on the bonds.
- Use good quality hair shampoo and conditioner.
- Use a thermal heat protectant solution when styling hair.
- At bedtime, braid hair into two side braids or in a high ponytail to prevent tangling and matting at the root area. Use a satin pillow to also prevent tangling.
- Avoid salt water and chlorine water. Wear a swim cap.
- Never fall sleep on wet hair extensions. Make sure the hair and bonds are dry before bedtime to avoid matting.
