Taking care of your extensions

Natural hair if damaged can be restored by taking care and nourishing them again but extensions once damaged cannot be repaired. It is very important that you take good care of your extensions because you certainly did not spend that good amount of money to have them just for a month.  We will talk about some tips on how you can prolong the life of your extensions and save the same grace they had on the first day.

    Wash your hair correctly.

  1.  Be sure to use shampoos and conditioners that do not contain any silicon or detergents. Detergents destroy the glue used in putting the extensions and you may have to reinstall them sooner. Massage gently with your finger tips on your scalp and try not to ring out the hair much. It is recommended to wash hair every two days.

    Do not over heat your hair extensions. 
  2. Keep the heat limited.

  3.  You should stay away from overheating your extensions. Try to dry your hair naturally. If you are heating your hair for styling, be sure to apply heat protecting serum first. Brush your hair in sections. Hold your hair from one part to detangle them applying less pressure on your extensions.
  4. Store your clip-ins nicely.

  5. You should keep your clip-in hair extensions or weaves washed, cleaned, detangled and store them in an air tight container large enough to store them. You do not want to have a messy bundle of discolored hair when you re-open it.
  6. Know your extensions

  7. Make sure you know whether your extensions are synthetic or human because taking care of both is very different. Human hair can be brushed, curled and styled in versatile manner whereas synthetic hair usually does not provide you with that kind of flexibility.
  8. Be Gentle.

  9.  You cannot be harsh on your extensions. This will break them. Avoid over pulling them, wringing or knotting them. Knotting your hair tightly is no way to go if you want them to last longer.
  10. Consult with your Stylist.

  11. Keep in touch with your stylist for a check up on your hair or if you are thinking of getting a cut, re-installation or entangling.

Choosing between Human and Synthetic Hair

If you are thinking of getting hair extensions, braids or wigs and cannot decide whether you should get human hair or synthetic (artificial), this will give you an idea of what the difference is between both types of hair, and will help you choose what is right for you.

All that you need to know about human hair

Human Hair: is soft, silky and natural. There are primarily four types of human hair: Indian, Chinese, Indonesian and European.  Indian hair is thin in nature but have a texture to it that allows it to be styled in different ways. Chinese hair has very thin strands which are the reason why they are straight in nature. Indonesian hair can be found at reasonable cost and have a great supply whereas European hair has a limited supply hence is more
Human hair requires more of your attention, but the look is flawless. 

Human hair needs more effort in taking care of them. They do not get any benefit from naturally occurring oils in the scalp so they need to be hydrated and conditioned daily. If you are a person who believes in quality first then human hair is the choice for you. Sure they are expensive than artificial hair but they give you same natural hair look and allows you to style them in various fashions and gives you the control of your own appearance.

Remember, Human hair is processed with several chemicals before turning them in extensions and wigs so they do lose some of its original quality and also will need more nourishment and proper care to keep them in good shape. If taken care of they can last for as long as a year.

All that you need to know about synthetic hair

Synthetic Hair:  Synthetic hair has come a long way in past couple of years. It is very hard to tell the difference between synthetic and human hair unless you compare them side by side. They are affordable and there is a wide variety to choose from. Although you have a lot of options to pick from with synthetic hair but once you choose a style, there is not much you can do with it. If you picked hair with set curls, it will be very difficult to change its pattern and so is with other hair styles.

Check out synthetic hair selection. 

The quality of synthetic hair has really improved over the years. 
There is synthetic hair available with the possibility of reheating. You can reshape them but they do not give you the desired result as human hair. They do not show the same versatility and final finish.

You can wear them right out of the box and its affordability allows you to change your hair style often.
