Extending Your Hair Extensions
Celebrities like Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, and Kate Gosselin have helped make hair extensions more popular than ever. Whether Dream Catchers, sew-ins, or clip-ons, were used to create your celebrity inspired look, proper care and maintenance can extend the life your hair extensions, saving you from needing a celebrity sized bank account. Here are a few simple tips to help you make this beauty investment last longer:
1. Choose real hair. Be sure the hair you choose is 100% real hair. Bohyme and Indian Remy are the best types of hair sold at beauty supply stores. Both are consistent in quality and available in a wide range of colors and textures. If you are looking for more exclusive hair, order online from Pelo Hair of Los Angeles. They carry high-end, Brazilian, Malaysian, European, and Persian hair and will do custom color (plus, their silk closures are the best).
2. Sleep smart. Always use silk or satin pillowcases or wraps. Cotton or other fabrics will cause hair to become dry and end up in knots or with breakage. Also, remember to put hair into a ponytail or braid for even greater protection from tangles and moisture loss.
3. Brush. Not only do extensions need to be brushed in order to prevent separation from natural hair, the type of brush used is also important. Loop brushes are undeniably the best brush to use, as the allow the bristles to run over tracks, bonds, or cylinders with loosening them.
4. Stay hydrated. Moisturizing products are key to maximizing hair longevity. Do a deep conditioning treatment at least twice a month and use only moisturizing styling products, such as those made by Moroccan Oil.
By following these tips, your hair should last longer and stay looking great. All products mentioned are available for purchase from professional stylists, like me!
