Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and while we're spreading love to our significant others, friends, and family, let's not forget about showing some extra TLC to something else that deserves attention – your hair extensions! At Philocaly Hair, we believe that self-love extends to every aspect of your beauty routine, including your extensions. So, let's dive into some ways you can pamper and care for your extensions this Valentine's Day and beyond.
Just like your natural hair, extensions need to be cleansed regularly to maintain their shine and vitality. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to keep them clean without stripping away natural oils or damaging the bonds. Remember to be gentle while washing and avoid rubbing or tugging, especially at the attachment points. Check out some products we recommend here
Hydration is Key:
Hydrated hair is happy hair, and the same goes for your extensions. Treat them to a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week to keep them soft and manageable. You can opt for leave-in conditioners or hair masks specifically formulated for extensions to provide extra nourishment.
Give your extensions some extra love by indulging in occasional oil treatments. Natural oils like argan oil, Moroccan oil, or jojoba oil can work wonders in restoring moisture and adding shine to your extensions. Apply a small amount of oil to the mid-lengths and ends, focusing on areas that tend to be drier, and leave it on overnight for maximum hydration.
Protect While Styling:
Whether you're using heat tools or styling products, it's essential to protect your extensions from damage. Invest in a heat protectant spray to shield them from high temperatures and minimize the risk of heat-induced frizz or breakage. Additionally, opt for alcohol-free styling products to prevent drying out the hair and causing unnecessary stress. Here
are some heat protectants we recommend.
Brushing your extensions regularly is crucial for maintaining their smoothness and preventing tangling. However, it's essential to use a brush specifically designed for extensions, such as a wide-tooth comb. Start from the ends and work your way up gradually to avoid pulling or snagging, and always be gentle to preserve the integrity of the hair.
Schedule regular maintenance appointments with your hairstylist to ensure that your extensions stay in top condition. They can check for any signs of damage or loosening bonds and provide professional care to keep your extensions looking fresh and flawless. Additionally, they can help maintain the overall health and appearance of your hair.
