How to care for hair extensions is quite trouble for many women—the most frequent mistake we took is using the same product on our natural hair and human hair extensions. You think that the product will work well and make your hair extensions look great as it do with your natural hair. However, this is only would work well in some case. There are several but simple tips to make your remy hair extensions look great.
Wash and Condition Regularly
Human hair wigs is need less maintenance than your real hair, but it still needs regular washing and conditioning. Especially when you wearing a lace front human hair wigs, shampooing and conditioning will revitalizes your human hair extensions, and keep it look fresh.
Less is more
When we tried hard to keep our real hair moisturized by using oil, however, real human hair extensions don't need that maintenance. Too many products will weight down your hair and make it look greasy and stringy. Use as little products as possible, no more than what is necessary.
Snip the ends
Most human hair has tapered ends, it the same as hair growing on a person looks. When wearing clip in hair extensions, snip away the last half inch to give a full look with blunt ends for straight hair and a uniform curl completely to the ends in curly hair.
Braid or Twist Curly Hair Nightly
Similar to your natural hair, knots and tangles will wreak havoc when sleeping with the hair loose or even if it is covered with a scarf or bonnet. Braiding and twisting keeps the your ponytail hair extensions in its best condition and will cut back on your styling time in the morning.
Lay off the heat
When wearing natural hair wigs, treat it just as you would do for your natural hair. While its obviously better to use direct heat on the hair extensions than your real hair, it can still cause the curls to loosen and even straighten.
Fold, don't cut your wefts
Sewing your hair weaves by folding over the ends rather than cutting them to avoid shedding. The more the hair sheds the less full the wefts will be. Nobody want to have a head of thin and scraggly hair.
Cover it up
Sleeping with a satin scarf or bonnet. For our real hair we are concerned with robbing the hair of moisture, and with long hair extensions, satin causes less frizz and roughness.
