Taking care of your hair extensions - what should you consider?
Washing and Combing Hair Extensions
Hair extensions require frequent and thorough care. However, many people think that they do not need to take as much care as natural hair. They think that because hair extensions are not directly connected to the scalp they do not get greasy and there is no point in washing them as thoroughly. This is a very common mistake, which leads to many problems with subsequent styling and hairstyling. This is a very common mistake, which leads to many styling and styling problems. Hair extensions (especially synthetic hair extensions) get dirt and dust on them and thus start to tangle. If you are physically active or go to the pool a lot, you should never leave your hair extensions alone. You should first meticulously comb your hair (with the brush or comb pointing downwards) and wash it thoroughly with a good shampoo. It's also not a good idea to soak your hair extensions completely in water. Too much water will make your hair frizzy, tangled and static-free. It is best to soak it gradually and then comb it through. What is the best tool to use to fix my hair? Side-swept or straight bangs and the ends of hair are very fragile and should therefore be treated with a fine bristle brush. It is important not to rub the attachments. They should be dried on a flat surface, gently pressing them with a towel. Often, ladies wrap a turban around their hair after bathing so that it does not drip wet and then wipe their heads firmly and rub their hair against each other. If you do this to your hair extensions, they will lose their smoothness and shine and become brittle and greyish.
Regardless of your hair type - tape hair extensions, micro rings hair extensions and static hair - each require proper care. Just use professional products and keep a few rules in mind and your hair will look great for a long time.
It is Better to Go Natural Hair Extensions
It is not good to use artificial, synthetic hair. While they are certainly cheaper than natural hair extensions, they definitely wear out faster and lose their nice look, making the result neither aesthetically pleasing nor satisfactory. In the end, it will be much more profitable to buy natural dovetails, because they last for a long time. There are many types on the market and the choice depends mainly on the condition of your real hair and its shade. You need to choose the color of the hair extensions carefully, so that they blend in perfectly with the rest. Otherwise, it will look unnatural and people will realize that it is not our hair. This is especially important when it comes to hair extensions or bangs. Although the ends of the hair extensions may be a different shade, it is not a good idea to have different hair extensions in the upper sections of your hair. Fringe extensions have recently become quite popular. This type of hair needs to be in good quality because it is on the front and easily visible.
Sleeping with Hair Extensions
Something else to keep in mind when using hair extensions is that you should not sleep in them. When we sleep, we often unconsciously move our head, fidget and change our position. This often results in unruly hair in the morning. It is important to remember to remove clip-in hair extensions if they are attached. Without it, strands of hair can be damaged. What's more, they can become detached and fall out during the night or become loose (which you might not notice at first, causing them to fall out when you least expect it).
Why Should You Sleep with Your Hair Tied Up?
At night, you have no control over what happens to your hair and it is at this time that it is most vulnerable to damage. So, what's the point of taking care of your hair during the day? Then all the care and treatment you put into your hair to keep it beautiful won't have the desired effect.
With short hair, the problem seems to be much less. When strands of hair are short, they are only vulnerable to you rubbing your head against your pillow during the night. In the case of long hair, the problem is much more complex because at night, your hair is exposed to tugging and pulling and therefore frizzes, felts and tangles.
The Nightlife of Hair Extensions
During sleep, a lot of processes take place in our bodies that we are often not aware of. Many of these happen in the scalp, which is how hair regenerates, strengthens and grows. Not surprisingly, oiling your hair at night brings the best results. The night life of hair is really intense. This is when the nutrients are absorbed best and work most intensely.
It is just as easy to regenerate and strengthen hair as it is to damage it at night. Unfortunately, it is easy for hair to become damaged while you sleep. It is important to know what happens to your hair at night and how to take good care of it while you sleep.
Does hair get damaged at night?
Hair (not only fine or delicate hair) is susceptible to mechanical damage every night. This is especially true for people with long and tangled hair or who share a bed with someone. When you sleep with someone, they may unintentionally pull your hair, pull it out or break it. However, we can also rub our hair against the pillow, crush it, pull it, or just unknowingly tangle it ourselves - especially if we are very mobile when we sleep.
