Everyone loves having beautiful hair. However, not all of us are lucky enough to have lovely and silky rich hair without spending unbelievably large amounts of money in the process. For many, hair extensions have been the answer to their "please give me beautiful hair" prayers. Yet, what most people don't realize is the getting hair extensions is the easy part. The hard part or the more straining bit starts when you have to actually take care of the extensions. And yes, contrary to popular belief one does have to take care of your extensions once you get them. With a little effort and dedication, taking care of your hair extensions can be as easy or as difficult as taking care of your original hair. It all depends on how committed you are.
Most women who get hair extensions either don't have the patience to take care of their original hair or don't know how. This is probably the reason why they get hair extensions in the first place, because their long hair tends to look unruly instead of lovely. Just like in the case of real hair, extensions also need to be cared for long term sustenance. After all, getting hair extensions is no cheap or inexpensive move, major money is involved. To get the most for your money with your extensions, there are a few simple rules that one should follow.
First, wash your hair every 2-3 days wash your hair by standing in the shower do not was your hair forward over the bath or basin. It is important that one does not wash extensions everyday because it can loosen or wear off the bonds. Blow dry your bonds and extensions after each wash. Another point is that it is important to condition or moisturize your hair after every wash, do not put conditioner on bonds only mid ends to ends, because unlike our natural oils that released through our scalp, extensions have no way of getting conditioned. If you fail to condition, your extensions are in danger of getting ragged and brittle and will eventually split. Also, because of the nature of hair extensions, one has to make more effort to wash between the weave and the braids or bonds. Rinse your hair well to get all the shampoo and conditioner off the hair.
Second, while brushing your hair, make sure to be extra gentle and use a hair extension brush. More often, we take our hair for granted and brush our hair roughly, almost to the point of yanking out the strands. However, with hair extensions, you're not only in risk of yanking out hair extensions, but also your natural hair. One has to be even more careful with hair extensions. You can't hold any one responsible if you work roughly with your hair if you pull out some extensions it is your own fault no one is to blame. In other words you should work gentle with the hair extensions. Brush from the bottom up in a downward motion and take time be gentle and be patient.
On an average, our natural hair grows about 2cm to 4 cm over 2 months. The bonds will get tangled with new growing hair. You must undo any tangling with your fingers, This is also usually the time when you will pay your hair stylist or extension artist a visit and have the strands loosen from the new growing hair and to check for damage.
After 3-4 months it depends how fast your hair grow pay your hair stylist or extension artist a visit and have the strands taken out, the stylist then rebond the hair extensions and will make an appointment for you to put the extensions back this will cost you R___ per strand. This must be done every 3-4 months. If you look after your hair extensions it could last for years to come it all depends on the way you handle your hair.
In case you want to perm, re bond or colour your hair, this should be done by your stylist instead of doing it yourself. In the same way, retouching for the same should also be dealt with in the same manner, with a stylist. You can't hold the stylist responsibly for damage done by yourself at home or at another stylist.
At the end of the day, taking care of your extensions is just like taking care of your actual hair. A few tips to prevent quick wearing away of the extensions also means investing time as much as money. Blow dry extensions and bonds after each wash, tie your hair or braid your hair before going to bed, be gentle and take your time. Small things like never sleeping with wet hair, or tying your hair up when sleeping or exercising will make all the difference.
