XO Hair Care Guide
It is crucial to properly care for your hair extensions, to ensure they last for the maximum amount of time possible. In most cases, this will include brushing before bed and prior to washing to ensure there are no tangles, which may result from friction or wind. Remember, the extensions should never be brushed when they are wet, since this is when follicles are considered their most vulnerable. If they are excessively brushed while wet, it can result in the extensions being damaged quite a bit.
It is also important to be careful of the types of products that are used on the extensions. If the shampoo or other products contain sulfates, they can strip the natural oils. Since there is no supply of nutrients from the scalp, it is essential that a no-sulfate shampoo is used to ensure the hair does not dry out.
Guide to Properly Care for Your Hair
After washing the hair, it may be beneficial to add a few drops of natural oils to the scalp, such as Coconut or Almond oil, to help and moisturize the hair extensions. When proper care is taken, you can expect the natural hair to last and look vibrant and healthy much longer.
- Avoid over-washing your hair. Use small amounts of natural products and your hair will stay cleaner for longer. Also, over-washing can loosen your extensions.
- Never use a brush on your hair when it’s wet. Instead, use a wide-toothed comb.
- NEVER go to bed with wet hair!
