What’s the difference between a hair extensions hair brush and a regular hair brush? Hair extensions brushes are mainly made up of soft bristles with sporadic hard bristles. The reason for the soft bristles on a hair extensions hair brush is to protect the bond or clip on a set of hair extensions. Brushing with a regular brush can damage, weaken or completely strip your hair extensions from your hair, causing them to shed.

Where to get a Hair Extensions Hair Brush

There are many types of hair extensions hair brushes out there, but we chose the reliable Hair Extensions Hair Brush by Hairaisers. Why? It has the same familiar design as a regular brush, so adapting to a new design is not an issue, also the Hairaisers brand has a reputable professional influence in the hair extensions industry.

Top 5 Ways to Extend the Life of Hair Extensions

Extend the Life of Hair Extensions

Clip in hair extensions are not cheap, and extending their life is a great way to get your moneys’ worth. All hair extensions manufacturers always emphasise on keeping a good maintenance schedule for your hair extensions. This is in their best interest, as the longer their hair extensions last, the better their products reputation is. We look at the top 5 ways to maintain your hair extensions.

Top 5 Ways to Keep Hair Extensions Healthy

  • Adhere to Recommended Aftercare to the Specific Product
  • On each pack of clip in hair extensions, there is a brief recommendation on how to treat the specific set of hair extensions, as maintenance can differ from brand to brand. This is usually down to quality, high quality human hair extensions will usually last the recommended duration of 3+ months, but lesser quality hair extensions would need exceesive maintenance in order to last anywhere near that long.

  • Carry out a Fortnightly Treatment
  • The hair extensions hair itself, is dead. Therefore, the hair extensions hair is not recieving the natural nutrients that your own hair does. So it is highly recommended to use a fortnightly treatment in your hair that is designed for hair extensions. This product is different to the day to day products like Leave in Treatments and Shine Serums.

  • Always use a Hair Extension Brush
  • Hair Extensions are not indestructable, and using a Hair Extensions Brush is mandatory. The hard bristles on a hair extensions brush are spread out and the majority of the other bristles are soft. Using any other brush or comb WILL cause breaking, shedding and a great loss of hair in a short length of time.

  • Tie your Hair up at Night
  • It is best to tie your hair up of a night, this prevent hair tangling or matting. When the hair is contantly rubbing up against each other, the hair will eventually interlock and cause the hair to tangle, so keeping you hair tied is the best way. If you have clip in hair extensions, always take them out of a night.

  • Avoid Sunbeds, Swimming Pools and Similar Scenarios
  • Swimming pools and sunbeds are the hair extensions natural enemy. Sunbeds dry your hair, and on hair extensions this is something you do not want. When your hair extensions are dried out in this manner, your hair extensions will look awful. We recommend using some form of protective head wear or avod them altogether. Swimming pools contain Chlorine, and this agent can cause your hair extensions to change colour, sometimes to very strange tones like fire engine red.

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.
