Taking Good Care Of Your New, Long Extensions

Aug 27th 2015 at 4:21 AM

If you are thinking about getting new extensions it is important to know what you should expect and what you should do in order to take good care of your new hair. Most people don’t think about new extensions beyond how great they look, and probably how they will get them done, especially just after the first purchase of hair extensions. However, if you want your new extensions to not only last as long as they should but also stay neat and healthy (and of course look lovely and beautiful), you need to do and know a few things concerning the extensions. There are three main types of extensions. These are:  tape-in hair extensions, where wefts of hair are attached to your actual hair using double-sided tape and sometimes glue as well. Secondly, fusion hair extensions; where your natural hair is attached to individual keratin tipped strands using heat. Thirdly, sew-in or weave hair extensions; where wefts of the extension hair are sewn into rows of braided natural hair.

The choice of the type of hair extensions that you get is up to you but your choice will also depend on several factors that your hair stylist can best explain to you. Once you have been advised and you have decided on the best choice of hair extensions for you, you can get them from mobile hair extensions in Perth or anywhere else where you are assured of getting the best possible quality of extensions. Once you get your extensions and once you have them done, the rest is up to you taking good care of them. To take good care of your extensions, the following considerations are necessary. First of all, you should know that hair products containing sulphates are very likely going to damage your extensions and cause them to break down. As such, you should avoid any products containing sulphates including styling creams, oils, shampoos and conditioners. These products will also cause your hair and extensions to loosen faster and make your hair much more difficult to manage.

Additionally, once you buy expensive or inexpensive hair extensions Perth, you need to take good care of them by regularly brushing your hair. Hairstylists usually recommend that you brush your hair at least twice a day and with an appropriate brush. This will not only keep your hair looking great at all times, but it will also prevent hair entanglement which can make your hair very difficult to manage. If you can brush your hair more than twice a day then the better for you. Next, when you are going to sleep, it is a good idea to tie your hair in order to prevent it from pulling and damaging your real hair while you are asleep. The best way to do this is to tie the hair in a high bun on top of your head.
