Clip In Hair Extensions Aftercare
Aftercare for clip in hair extensions is the most important part of having hair extensions, as the way you look after and maintain hair extensions prolongs their life and keeps your clip in hair extensions looking healthy. People often see hair extensions aftercare as a chore, which is partly true, they do need some TLC, but by following a few simple steps in hair extensions aftercare, the hair extensions maintenance routine is less time consuming.
Aftercare Steps for Clip In Hair Extensions
Use the Correct Products – Hair extensions are essentially dead hair, so they require slightly different products than your natural hair. We recommend the Hair Extensions Aftercare Set by Hairaisers, as they are developed specifically for human hair extensions.
Keep Brushing to a Minimum – Excessive brushing strips the hair from the hair extension weave, as it does from your own natural hair with excessive brushing. The only difference being that the hair on your head grows back. We recommend no more than once or twice a day, brushing from the tip working your way up gripping your hair from the roots. This prevents any hair shedding from the hair weave itself.
Avoid Other Chemicals – We are not neccessarily only talking about hair products, but other chemicals such as Chlorine from swimming pools. It is important to maintain an awareness as some day to day activities may have an impact on your hair extensions, even too much time in the sun can react badly with hair extensions.
Washing Hair Extensions – Every time you wash your extensions, you are slowly washing off the protective silicone that covers the damaged cuticle layer. This causes the hair to tangle over time, so reducing the amount of times you wash your hair extensions actually prolongs their life.
Take Your Clip In Hair Extensions Out of an Evening – Clip in hair extension clips are prone to snapping if too much force is applied to them, also the hair itself can tangle during the night because of unnatural movements. If your hair extensions are applied by a more permanent method, it is advised to wear your hair up of a night before you go to sleep.
What and What Not To do with Clip In Hair Extensions
There are many factors when wearing clip in hair extensions, or even permanent hair extensions. Here are some recommendation for wearing clip in hair extensions.
It is strongly advised against to wear hair extensions while pregnant. The reason for this is because someone who is pregnant goes through some changes that may have an effect wearing hair extensions. The hair roots are not as strong as that of someone who is not going through the typical hormonal changes. This applies for those wearing permanent hair extensions, as the bonds are weakened by natural hair oils that are produced.
Do not use strong conditioners, aggressive hair conditioners and shampoos have an impact on hair extensions, more often than not it would be a negative impact. Only use hair extension shampoos and conditioners that are specifically designed for hair extensions.
There are many other factors to consider, but to list them all would be virtually impossible.
