If you’ve had the pleasure of having Great Length hair extensions, you’ll know that you need to take a bit of extra care with them, just like your normal hair.

Hair ExtensionsBelow are some tips on how to maintain them and look after them properly to ensure you get the most wear out of your hair extensions.

Pro Tip: Always have your hair extensions applied by an experienced hairdresser, particularly when it comes to heat bonded extensions – you don’t want to run the risk of scalp and hair damage, very ouch!

5 Tips For Hair Extensions

  1. Your hairdresser should tell you this, but you don’t want to wash your hair until 48 hours have passed. This allows time for the bonds to settle in and your hair to adjust to the new extensions. Before sleeping, pull you hair back into a loose ponytail to avoid your hair getting tangled, this will help to prolong the life of the bonds.
  2. Aim to brush your hair twice a day with a specifically designed brush for hair extensions. Don’t use hard brush strokes or you could damage the bond and cause premature breakage. For the best care, separate your strands with your finges and slowly brush hair from close to the scalp downwards. This stops matting from occurring. Avoid hard bristled brushes, as they can pull strands out. If you have tangles, a wide toothed comb is best to remove these.
  3. You can style your hair extensions with curling irons and hot rollers, but always ensure that the heat doesn’t touch the hair bond. Keep a 3-4cm width from the hair bonds. Don’t use a hair dryer close to your scalp, as you will damage the hair bond.
  4. Avoid products that contain sulphur. Only use recommended products for hair extensions. For optimal results, when you shower, wash your hair by tilting the head back and applying cleanser from the top of the head downwards. Don’t face your head downwards to wash. Use a conditioner for hair extensions and if you have tangles, de-tangle from the mid-strand downwards, always avoiding the scalp area. If you use a blow dryer, use a medium-low heat and blast the hair with a cool shot once your hair is totally dry.
  5. If you swim a lot in sea water or chlorine, your extensions will not last as long compared with those people that don’t swim. To get the most out of your extensions, wet the hair completely to help stop chlorine and salt water from sticking to your hair. Immediately following a swim, always apply an anti-tap water remedy to help eliminate damage from alkalinity in the water and then dry the area as above.

By following these tips you’ll ensure that your Great Lengths extensions last as long as possible.
