Hair extension now becomes a common term with people who love beauty and in this business. With 30 years experience of hair manufacturer and wholesale hair bundles, we’ve been received a lot of questions of how to keep weft hair, tip/ tape/clip in/curly hair weave from customers all over the world. From the advice of K-Hair experts, we draw a routine of a tip hair woman and give you some helpful tips to maintain hair extension.
1. HOW TO MAINTAIN HAIR EXTENSION IN THE MORNING?
There are many stuffs need to be handled in the morning, but don’t forget the routine to keep your hair in the perfect condition.
1.1. MAINTAIN HAIR EXTENSION BY BRUSHING
Brushing your hair is a first step to start hair care routine. We brush hair every day but what is the correct way to maintain hair extension? Is it different from normal one?
You can also bring hairbrushes in your bag to go outside in case you want your hair always neat and in style.
1.2. THE RIGHT WAY TO WASH YOUR TIP HAIR
To moisturize your hair, you can apply massage oil on it 2-3 hours before washing. Next, remember to untangle all hair knots. Then rinse hair in water and apply shampoo.
We suggest take hair shower instead of bath in order not to tangle your hair. Then another question pops into your mind: What about cold shower and hot shower? Which one more suitable for tip hair extension? Cold water can seal moisture on your hair, make your hair looks smooth, flat and less bouncy. Meanwhile, hot water can remove dirt, oil and product build up in an easier way but dry your hair and fade colors faster as well. To sum up, you can wash hair with hot water first to remove all dirt and hair products, then rinse hair in cold water for moisture balance and hair shine.
So what kind of shampoo appropriate for tip hair extension?
First thing comes into your mind definitely products with natural and friendly factors. It’s true because natural and friendly ingredients may help long life span of hair extension.
Shampoo must have no Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) or you can choose the one marked Sulfate-free on the label. To shorten, you can understand SLS is a cleansing and foaming ingredient usually used in household cleansing products and cosmetics such as shampoo, conditioner, hair gel… It may cause some problems such as: skin irritation, itchy toward sensitive skin, eye irritation and even corrode your hair bonds.
2. MAINTAIN HAIR EXTENSION BY CONDITIONER
There are 3 tips we recommend when using conditioner:
- Don’t apply on the roots or your scalp
- Use conditioner only for the ends of hair
- 5 minutes are suitable time
TIPS FOR DRYING
You have to make sure your roots have been dried completely, dry roots makes you feel comfortable, of course. However, you should leave the end naturally dry because heat and wind from the hairdryer may take moisture from your hair and cause split ends.
SPRAYING TIP HAIR
If you want to spray hair to design and keep hair in styles, please remember to wash your hair after a long day come back home. Using hair spray products in a long time without washing can make you feel dry and hard hair. Therefore, rinsing hair in hot shower will remove these products and make it smoother.
3. MAINTAIN HAIR EXTENSION UNTIL AFTERNOON
With energetic and sporty women, some activities are essential parts of the day. They can be gym and other sports activities. In this article, I want to mention swimming, which relates to water – one factor affects tip hair.
Swimming causes knotted and matted your hair due to salt in the beach and chlorine in the pool. However, they are not the reasons preventing women from any interesting activities.
2 tips we suggest are: braid your hair and tie it up into lovely buns out of water and ready for swimming or wear a swimming cap if you want to dive.
4. NIGHT OF TIP HAIR WOMEN- DON’T FORGET TO MAINTAIN HAIR EXTENSION
At the end of the day, after all activities and hair care procedure, you may feel exhausted and need to go to bed. However, don’t forget to plait your hair before sleeping, it will make your hair easier to brush in the morning after. Wearing hair sleeping mask overnight is also a good choice.
