From hydration hacks to styling saviours, we’ve gathered 5 of our top tips to help keep your hair extensions in tip-top condition!
1) STYLE USING FOAM ROLLERS
To avoid damaging synthetic hair, ditch your curling wand and buy yourself some foam rollers.
Although they’re frequently associated with Grannies, rollers create super-full and voluminous curls with minimal damage, so they’re a real win, win.
2) GO SULPHATE & SILICONE-FREE
When choosing your shampoo, avoid sulphate and silicone at all costs! Why? Because once that sulphate comes into contact with your extensions, it’s going to strip moisture and leave you with a frizzy mess!
3) CONDITION ONLY THE ENDS
Although we all love super-smooth locks, try to focus your conditioner on the tips of your extensions. Why? Because the emollients in your conditioner may dissolve the adhesion at your root, and ain’t nobody got time for their extensions falling out!
4) SLEEP WITH BRAIDS
The biggest rule? NEVER go to bed with your hair down (or wet)!
To avoid tangles and frizz, loosely braid your locks before you dive into your duvet.
NOTE: if your extensions are only clip ins, always take them out before drifting off.
5) BRUSH FROM TIP TO TOP
To avoid pulling half that hair out, start brushing from the tips and gradually work your way up to the top. Another brushing tip? When your hair’s wet it is at its weakest, so be super-gentle and patient as you brush!
