How do I care for my hair extensions?
Hair extensions require special care and attention. If you want to keep your hair in top condition and to last for a long time, you should follow these simple steps. Extensions are more vulnerable to damage, especially at the hair's fastening point. Always remember not to apply conditioner to the attachment points of your hair extensions. Moisturizing is also a key aspect of hair care, as extensions tend to dry out more than our own hair that grows out of the roots.

It is therefore very important to nourish your hair extensions and to make sure that you use a suitable conditioner every time you wash your hair. This is why it is very important to care for your hair extensions.
It is best to gently blow-dry extensions and let them air dry. Extension hair should be dried with cool or warm air.
Therefore, you should at all costs avoid using a hot blow dryer and keep it at a distance of about 20 - 30 cm from your head. Always blow-dry your hair in cool air to close the cuticles and to keep your hair soft, shiny and manageable. Start blow-drying your hair from the roots and work your way toward the ends. Use your fingers to comb your hair while drying. Brush your hair only when it is dry.

It is a well-known fact that any mechanical damage is a crime for hair, as it breaks or loosens the hair bonds, i.e. the places where hair is attached to our natural strands.

Such damage includes, for example, rubbing your hair while it is wet after bathing because the water softens the hair and makes it more vulnerable. The towel rubs against the hair shaft and weakens it considerably, tugging at it and damaging its condition. It is best to gently pull your hair back into the towel immediately after showering so that the excess water is absorbed into the towel and you avoid damage.
How to sleep with hair extensions?
It is important to protect the entire length of your hair from mechanical injury, especially while sleeping. This is because they rub against the material of your pillow, and often you simply tug on them while lying on them. The best and important rule with extensions is to braid them into a loose braid or ponytail. This will greatly minimize the risk of damaging the hair: the hair's joints will not be strained.
Of course, every hair needs to be combed and there is nothing unusual about that. The problem begins if you use a narrow-toothed comb to brush the extensions or a brush that tugs at the hair instead of combing it. For brushing this type of hair it is advisable to use a special brush or comb, which is specially made for extensions, these usually have most of the natural bristles with longer nylon parts to gently comb the hair and not to pull it. Start at the ends of your hair and work your way upwards. If your hair extensions get tangled, don't tug at them with a brush but use your fingers to gently separate them before combing through your hair.
