What product you should avoid with your hair extensions?
Avoid shampoos and conditioners that are designed for problematic hair such as: – Thin hair – Dry hair – Oily hair – Colour-damaged hair
Be sure u wont use any products that contain sulphates, keratin, silicones and alcohol!
When choosing shampoo and conditioner, make sure the products are for normal/regular hair only. This is the best way to make sure there are no ingredients that could cause chemical reaction and unwanted texture to the hair extensions.
Always be sure to do one simple thing before you buy any product…flip it over! Many products out there have sulphates and alcohol hidden in their formulas. Not all companies claiming to make sulphate-free shampoos are truly free of sulphates. This is why it is important to know what to look when reading ingredients.
Additionally, using sticky products such as hair spray, hair gel, or hair wax, can and likely will clog up your hair extensions.
Furthermore, the more products you use, the more you will need to wash them. Remember, over washing leads to dry and tangled extensions. Also, keep
in mind that the products that you use in your natural hair can travel onto your extensions from constant head movement and heat from your scalp.
Wondering what smoothing products to avoid?
Where people tend to go wrong is they use Moroccan Oil or coconut oil. This is the most gluggy and thick oil for hair extensions. It will suffocate the hair and can cause friction, making it looks worse, and are only going to saturate your hair extensions in and oily coating that’s actually really hard to get out!
SO BEST TO AVOID OILS LIKE THESE.
With a good routine, you can wear your hair extensions for months on end and enjoy fuller, thicker, and healthier-looking locks.
Its not easy to recommend one product for every client that’s why we love to mix the products.
For once a week we recommend deep cleansing shampoos, and for rest of the week use good hair salon brand sulphate free shampoo and conditioner.
