Keep your Hair Extensions Beautiful with Proper Care and Styling

Jul 2nd 2015 at 12:32 AM

For centuries, women have valued long hair as an expression of beauty, sexiness, and femininity. Today, thanks to improvements in the field of beauty and cosmetics, women all over the world get to explore beauty by adorning their heads with lovely hair extensions. A beautiful head of hair however, requires maintenance to remain beautiful. Your hair extensions will not look very silky and glossy after a few weeks if you don’t take good care of them, especially during styling.

You should give your hair extensions the same care that you give to your natural hair. The only difference between caring for natural hair versus caring for hair extensions is that products for hair extensions tend to be a lot milder than those used on natural hair. Shampoos for instance should have moisturising qualities to prevent stripping the extensions of their sheen. You should also use a conditioner to maintain softness. The technique used for washing extensions should also be careful to prevent tangling and fraying. If you are not careful when washing hair extensions, you will be left with a tangled-up mess of hair by the time you are done. 

Most human hair extensions get damaged fast because of too much use of heat. Most styling objects such as curling irons, tongs, flat irons and blow dryers, come in handy when you want to straighten or achieve a certain look with your hair. But these same tools can damage your hair extensions when you overuse them. Instead of using heat to style your hair extensions, try using rollers. You can buy styling rollers when buying your human hair extensions in Perth. If you don’t know how to style your hair using rollers, ask your hairdresser to show you how. Another tip that will keep your hair extensions looking silky is using the right hair-styling products. You have to remember that unlike your natural hair, hair extensions cannot be washed daily. You should therefore avoid plastering them with sprays, oil and lotions as these will only cause buildup of dirt which will lead to itching, hence more damage. Do not use styling agents that contain alcohol as these tend to cause more damage to the hair extensions and to your natural hair.

If a few weeks after you get your hair extensions you get the impulse to change your hair colour, go for new extensions instead of colouring the ones you have on. Most attempts to colour hair extensions are not successful as hair extensions do not have the same consistency of natural hair. Any procedure on hair extensions should be left in the hands of a hair extensions professional. If you live in Perth, for instance, and want to learn the correct techniques for managing your hair extensions, you can consult a specialist for hair extensions Perth WA and he or she will teach you everything from washing to brushing and styling.
