When purchasing human hair, it should be treated exactly the same as if it was the hair growing from your scalp. With proper care, human hair extensions can last years! Here are a few tips to get the best out of your hair extensions:
Comb from the bottom and work your way up. We always find it best to use an open tooth comb and part your hair in sections. This helps to reduce shedding.
When using heat or styling products, you should ALWAYS use heat protect first. This reduces the chances of the hair damaging and can help it to last longer.
Try to avoid using heat all of the time, its great that you want to style your hair and like mentioned above its important to use a good heat protect when you do, but it would also be good to reduce the amount of times you use heat on your hair. Instead of using a hair dryer, try air drying or use a heat protect spray that guarantees your style will stay in place for more than a day.
Consider installing your extensions into a wig cap and wear it as a glue less wig. If installed correctly, you can take off your wig every night, which can help it last much longer.
Satin Bonnets and silk pillow cases are now your friends. If after installing your extensions, you will leave them in for long period of time, make sure you sleep against a silk pillowcase or use a satin bonnet to cover your hair.
