Expert Tips | 10 Do’s and Don’ts of Hair Extensions
08 Apr Expert Tips | 10 Do’s and Don’ts of Hair Extensions
Hair extensions tips and guides have helped me tremendously in my entire venture within the hair fashion industry. I don’t just run a company that produces hair alternatives; I am also an avid wearer of the hair pieces that we provide. Believe it or not, I swear I was able to try wearing, at least, every single type of weaves varying from silky straight virgin hair to kinky textured clip-in extensions. Now you know where I’ve been able to gather the hair care guide and hair extensions tips that I post on my website and my blogs.
In this blog post, let me share with you the top 5 do’s and don’ts when it comes to wearing hair extensions.
1. Wash your hair.
One of the most advised hair extensions tips is proper washing and cleansing of your weaves. Treat your extensions with the utmost care as you would do to your own natural hair. Whether you wear I-Tip extensions or hair wefts, it is necessary to keep the strands clean. Hair experts suggest the co-washing technique for at least three times every week to keep weaves clean while maintaining its natural shine. Co-washing means you have to use conditioner instead of shampoo when cleansing your weaves. Use mild shampoo in bathing your extensions only when you are not co-washing.
2. Brush your hair.
Brushing your hair weave is just one way to remove the knots and tangles of your locks. Just be gentle in detangling the strands to prevent breakage of the hair strands. The best brush to us for weaves is an Ultimate Detangler Brush, its flexible widespread teeth are great for detangling and matting prevention. While wearing weaves, the detangler brush needs to be your new best friend and you should never leave home without it! Brushing should take place during your co-wash or conditioning process prior to rinsing and when the hair is dry, brush every so often to minimize shedding and matting.
3. Use clip-in hair extensions for quick enhancements.
Clip-in hair was once the main hair alternative for European hair textures as the go-to hair statement for women who love color and style but don’t want to risk damage brought by harsh chemicals on their natural hair. As the industry has evolved, this finished style preference is now available for Ethnic hair textures. If you prefer hair extensions for short term use to add a little volume, length, and color; you can opt for clip-in weaves as a convenient alternative to heat and glue.
It is not enough that you know a few things about hair extensions. Before getting those weaves installed to your mane, make sure you’ve researched multiple sources about hair extensions tips and maintenance care guide because that is where you’ll find what is best for your hair type and your lifestyle. Don’t fall into the category of a bad hair weave, check out the best human hair extensions reviews for your reference.
5. Hit the salon for maintenance.
You can follow self-help hair care guides and hair extensions tips that you find on the internet when it comes to taking care of your natural hair, but weave maintenance can be a little bit tricky, especially if you don’t have much experience in wearing extensions. Thus, it’s always best to find a professional that specializes in the care and maintenance of weaves to help you with your maintenance at least once a month.
1. Harsh hair products.
Harsh chemicals are bad enough for our natural hair, which only explains how harmful they can be to our hair extensions. Whether you are getting treatments or just simply washing your hair, make sure you choose mild hair products that ar friendly to your weaves.
2. Sleeping with wet hair.
This is pretty self-explanatory, even when you aren’t wearing any extensions. If you don’t want to wake up with matted, knotted, and tangled hair never sleep with loose wet hair. When allowing your hair to air dry overnight, secure it with the two-strand or braid technique while protecting your hair with a silk scarf or bonnet. Remember, tangles and hair weaves are a bad combination.
3. Tugging and pulling.
Hair extensions tips all over the internet repeatedly remind us that hair weaves should be taken care of with the utmost gentleness. Careless tugging, pulling, and even tight braids and buns are not only bad for your scalp, they could also cause strain on the hair weave which more often than not leads to damage.
4. Washing of clip-in hair extensions while attached to hair.
Many hair extensions like wefts, I-Tips, and micro-rings are tolerant to washing and cleansing while they are currently attached to your natural hair, but not clip-in weaves. Remove clip-in hair extensions first before washing it to avoid hard pulling of your own hair while it is at its weakest state.
5. Hair extensions that don’t match your natural hair.
The main reason why we wear hair extensions is because we want more length and style in the most natural and seamless way. In choosing hair weaves, make sure to pick hair pieces that flawlessly mimics your own strands. ONYC® Hair Relaxed-Perm Collection is the most popular textured straight product for black hair because it perfectly mimics gently relaxed African-American hair.
