After Care Products

There’s nothing like the feeling of new hair extensions.  DreamGirl loves the feeling of luscious hair feeling thick and volumised.

But just like your natural hair, hair extensions need looking after to keep them looking as fresh as they did on day one. And hot weather or being on holiday and swimming in salty or chlorine water can leave your hair extensions dry and in need of a little TLC.

Here are some tips on how to keep your extensions, whether sewn in or Clip’N Go, in great shape.

Keep tangle free: Just like your natural hair it can look weighed down or lank when not kept tangle free. Comb carefully with a natural bristled brush. If you use Clip’N Go Hair Extensions comb before and after application. You should make sure your hair extensions are detangled before you wash them.

Wash regularly: Whether synthetic or made of human hair your extensions need to be washed to keep them free of the dirt and sweat you pick up when out and about. Traffic fumes, dirt and grime, it all weighs your hair down and can damage the roots and tips. To wash don’t soak the hair as if it’s dry this can leave it more tangled and you could risk damaging the cuticles or ends by making hair too knotted. Instead rinse carefully, beginning at the roots and working down to the tip.

Use the right products: Some hair products can be too harsh for hair extensions. Human hair extensions are treated before being manufactured and the chemicals and detergents used in regular shampoo can strip away the hair’s natural oil making your extensions lose their shine and look lank. Use a shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for hair extensions. Shampoo carefully, using only a pea-sized amount and gently massage into the hair. Rinse carefully before applying conditioner working into the tips before using sparingly on the roots.

For Clip’N Go Hair Extensions you can detach before gentle washing.

Style on a low heat: High temperatures can damage hair. It’s best to leave hair extensions to dry naturally, combing gently after washing. You can blow-dry but keep on a low setting.

Regular upkeep will make sure you keep your hair extensions looking as good as new every time you wear them.
