Extensions are the perfect solution if you’re looking for more length or volume for a total transformation. So, if you have hair extensions, it’s important to keep them looking beautiful and healthy. Here are four tips that will help you do just that!
1. Wash Your Extensions Properly
One of the most important things you can do to keep your extensions looking beautiful is to wash them properly. This means using a gentle shampoo and conditioner, as well as avoiding products that will strip your hair of its natural oils.
“I recommend washing extensions at least once week. Many guests enjoy coming in for blowouts 🙂 that does not mean you can’t wash your natural hair on top. Separate your hair on the crown from your wefts and wash leaning forward in the shower or in the sink. This refreshes your hair while not needing a full wash and blowout on your extensions.”Stephanie Villarreal – Studio Be Salon Partner Stylist

2. Don’t Sleep with Wet Extensions
Your hair is at its weakest when it’s wet. Therefore, it’s no surprise that when you go to bed with wet hair, you’ll end up with more breakage and hair fall. When you’re sleeping, you’re bound to toss and turn. The friction caused by it can break your natural hair and tangle up your extensions. Your extensions will become frizzy as a result. Once your hair is dry, brush in Oribe Gold Lust Oil and braid each night before bed to keep your extensions looking beautiful.
Secondly, extensions take time to absorb moisture. Unlike your natural hair, hair extensions don’t consistently rejuvenate themselves or grow. Therefore, you’ll have to be cautious with them.
Product Recommendation: Oribe Gold Lust Oil
3. Brush Your Hair Carefully
Brushing your hair multiple times a day, every day, can be the best thing you can do for your extensions or the worst depending on your technique and the tools used. Therefore, it is essential that brushing and styling your hair is done correctly. Our stylists can help guide you through the entire process.
It’s very important that you brush your hair before starting your day. You should always be using a hair extension brush as this will stop the bristles from becoming stuck or disturbing the bonds in any way. If you remember to tie your hair back at night, it should not be very tangled or hard to deal with in the morning.
Product Recommendation: Extension Brush from Studio Be Salon
4. Use A Heat Protector Hair Product
One way to prevent damage is by using a product that will act like sunscreen for your hair. It forms a protective barrier so when heat is applied, it doesn’t damage your hair or hair extensions. Another great benefit is moisture. Heat protectors have similar properties to a conditioner. They lock in moisture to prevent your hair from drying out. Using Oribe Royal Blowout will keep your extensions looking beautiful.
Here in Colorado where the sun is bright and the air is thin, it’s even more important to protect your dream hair.
