Why do I need to look after my extensions?
Remember the moment you removed your extensions from the packet? Remember the glass shine on them? Remember being IN LOVE with them?
Well, you still can feel that way up to 6 months later! They just need some TLC.
The main reason extensions require much more TLC then our own hair is down to one simple fact. The hair isn’t connected to your scalp. Your scalp produces oil lubricating our natural hair however extensions do not get any of our greasy goodness. We are responsible of replacing the lack of oil with our aftercare & product choices.
SO LET US HELP YOU! 😻
Shampoo & Conditioner
You must ensure to be using SULPHATE FREE products. This is usually a word that people do not understand so lets explain a little further.
That frothy, white lather that forms when you shampoo or use conditioner comes from sulfates contained in hair products. Sulfates are all primarily surfactants. A surfactant is a combination of molecules that attract both oil and water. One molecule clings to oil while the other clings to water, allowing the grease and dirt to release from you there and flow down the drain.
Of course we want our hair to be clean and oil free but when your extensions do not have a natural oil supply we don’t want to over clean them.
Using a sulphate shampoo would lead to dry, frizzy and discoloured extensions. It will also cause breakage on the hair.
WHO WANTS THAT AFTER YOU’VE JUST PAID WONGA FOR THOSE LOCKS?!
Our official supplier of hair extensions also stock an amazing range of after care specifically designed for extensions. By using a extensions aftercare range you can be 100% certain there are no hidden surprises!
We all know that after a few washes and a bit too much heat styling our extensions can start to feel unloved. Lets learn how to get that moisture back and restore that gloss!
Wella Professional Reflections Oil
Some people will say not to use oil as it can add too much weight to the shaft of the hair. This is correct for budget oils as they are heavy weight. However this Wella oil is beautifully light and absorbs into the extensions smoothing any fly aways and adding shine.
Maria Nila True Soft Argan Oil
This is a nourishing argan oil that softens, adds moisture and strength to the hair. This argan oil quickly absorbes and makes the hair smooth and eliminates frizz. In addition it also has a Colour Guard Complex that protects the hair against UV rays. This helps to preserve the hair colour of your extensions and natural hair.
Finally, the best thing about Maria Nila is that it’s vegan friendly. So, that means this oil is PARBEN AND SULPHATE FREE! 🎉
BC MOISTURE KICK Spray Conditioner
An instantly hydrating, lightweight spray conditioner for normal to dry, brittle or curly hair. The Hyaluronic Acid Derivate rebalances the moisture level of the scalp and hair to smooth the hair’s surface and prevent dehydration. Meanwhile, the Cell Perfector Technology brings beautiful suppleness, manageability, bounce and shine to each strand.
How to use:
Shake well to activate
Apply to mid-lengths and ends of towel-dried hair and comb through
Suitable for daily use
You can use heated tools to tame frizzy hair such as straighteners or a wand. However, if like me, you love your natural waves in your extensions and just want to smooth out the frizz then this is for you babe!
BEDHEAD After Party
With a single pump rub between your palms and smooth down the hair and that is it! You will be shocked how much shine and creamy finish this product gives you! Don’t forget this is a STYLING product not a leave in conditioner so use sparingly.
⭐️TOP TIP: This product can be used on wet or dry hair! So, if you fancy a smooth blow dry, use it on damp hair. If you just want to smooth your already styled hair, use it dry.
