Hi dolls! Since I've switched to permanent extensions I've had such a harder time maintaining them. I've got nano beads installed in my hair and if you wear these type permanent extensions, even Micro beads, keratin bonds and glue in, you'll know how easy it is for them to get dry, ugly and matted!
Unlike clip in hair extensions, you can't just chuck these out when you get bored of them (well you can if you're a cash millionaire.. But this hairs meant to last!).
So listen up dolls, I'll share with you my tricks to keeping your extensions soft, smooth & silky after months of wearing them!
ITS ALL ABOUT THE BRUSHES!
With these type of extensions you can't be careful enough when you're brushing and you totally don't want to reef the bonds out of your head!! Invest in a proper brush, wide toothed comb & a soft bristle brush for back combing. Using these tools, only brush from the bottom up. Trust me they make all the difference!
WASH LIKE A PRO!
Don't be a shampoo fool... Buy the right shampoo for your extensions. Extension shampoos are specifically formulated to cleanse the hair and restore quality and smoothness. These shampoos contain less harmful ingredients & wont wreck your hair bonds. Hair extension shampoos are available at salon supply stores. They make such a difference in the long term quality of your hair! I bought mine @
terrisaies for only €4.50!
AVOID BROOMSTICK FRIZZ
So don't just sleep on your princess locks. Every night tie them back in a plait before bed. This will prevent your extensions rubbing and eventually matting as well as drying out!
CONDITION FROM CHIN DOWN
Never apply conditioner near the bonds, this will loosen them and make them fall out! Use a deep conditioner after shampooing from the chin down. I also recommend a leave in spray before blow drying & styling! This Uniq one spray is brilliant!! It's priced around €15 from salon suppliers.
Follow these tips dolls and remember to get your extensions redid every 6-8 weeks! Go to a hairdresser you trust and always ask for professional advice if you're in doubt! Nano beads (permanent extensions) can be pricey to install and maintain so think about it loves. They look amazing but they need a lot of care! Best of luck dolls.
Happy hair day
Love, Dita Xx,
