Extension Care

Beauty Launchpad’s July issue featured a great Live & Learn article on extension care.
The five areas they touched on were brushing, washing, drying, styling and sweating or swimming with extensions.

Brushing: brush your hair before you shampoo.
“Brush gently from the ends up using a brush with tight bristles for everyday care and one with spaced bristles for tangles or knots.”

Washing: you may be able to go longer between washes.
“It’s important to use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo along with a moisturizing conditioner.”

Drying: it’s safe to blow-dry, but try air-drying when you can.
“keep the heat at medium-to-cool, instead of hot.”

Styling: have fun styling in new ways.
“Always use products and styling tools that are professional grade.”

Sweating or Swimming: put your hair in a ponytail or braid.
“Sometimes clients aren’t used to having long hair and forget that these activities can cause tangles.”
