A successful hair extension application starts with the proper technique and quality extensions. Yet, once you leave the salon, it’s up to you to maintain that smooth, eye-catching finish. Fortunately, keeping your hair looking pristine for months following application is a breeze with the right approach. Follow these do’s and don’t to achieve exactly that.
Dry your roots with each wash.
Use a heat protectant.
Wash your hair every day.
Use heavy oils at the root.
Hydration is the main requirement for maintaining a perfectly smooth finish. For that reason, many individuals reach for oil-based products to smooth down hair extension cuticles and add healthy moisture.
While lightweight options, like sunflower seed and roucou oils, offer nutrients and hydration, thicker oils and conditioners can break down bonding materials. For that reason, avoid using heavy treatments at the roots for tape-in and fusion methods.
