Begin your journey to enhance your appearance with browsing real human hair extensions by attachment types. For help selecting more AiryHair options like length and texture, refer to our hair extension tutorial. Then follow the maintenance and styling guidelines below to avoid damaging your natural and added locks.
To prolong your purchase’s lifespan, proper hair extension care includes special techniques, starting with brushing. Use a high-quality soft-bristle brush three or more times per day for smooth, tangle-free shine. Be gentle without pulling on additions. Untangle locks before shampooing.
Choose all hair care products with pure ingredients. Oil-free formulas are essential because greasy serums and treatments may break down bonds holding pieces in place. Ideally, mild preparations nourish tresses without weakening adhesives. Natural scalp oils moisturize your own locks. Since extensions aren’t growing, they can’t receive that direct supply. They’re vulnerable to dehydration, so skip options containing sulfates, alcohol, and ethanol that dry out, split, and frizz strands. Avoid common skin irritants like parabens.
Although extensions don’t become as dirty and oily as natural hair usually, washing them is essential. Wait 24-48 hours after fusion attachment before wetting them to ensure proper adherence. Then follow a cleansing routine three or four times per week instead of daily. Lather shampoo, massaging your roots and scalp gently to clear away any debris. Then work it down your mane carefully. Refrain from scrubbing your locks and head vigorously. Rinse. Squeeze lightly to extract excess moisture.
Removing clip-in sections before sleeping means their washing intervals can be longer than permanent ones. After every six to eight uses is common. Mix a little shampoo in lukewarm water. Soak extensions for 10 minutes without swirling them in the solution to avoid tangling. Rinse under cold running water to lock in moisture. Wring out excess liquid gently. Try dry shampoos for quick touch-ups with all AiryHair types.
Use a conditioner to moisturize, untangle, and protect washed hair, making smooth, stronger locks more manageable. Apply the preparation near attached extensions’ ends, not roots, so emollients don’t dissolve adhesions and cause slippages. Treat loose clip-in accessories with conditioner. Comb it through all addition types gently without pulling. Rinse. Still have knots? A detangling spritz can unsnarl them.
Counteract frequent styling product and hot tool use with a monthly deep conditioning tresses reclaim their healthy shine. Apply a rejuvenating hair mask between mid-shaft and tips. Leave on 20 minutes before rinsing to boost the moisture factor.
Air dry attached hair extensions, making sure they aren’t damp at bedtime. Wet tresses’ extra weight could cause entwined bunches and breakages. Movements during sleep might reposition and entangle long pieces enough to yank and damage your natural locks. Place unattached sections flat on towels to air dry. To align dried strands, comb through once again. In a hurry? Use a heat-protectant spray to retain and increase moisture before blow-drying on low setting.
When bedtime approaches, braiding your AiryHair strands loosely will stop bonded additions from knotting while you’re dreaming. Each morning, unravel your tangle-free mane and appreciate the effortless soft waves. Always remove temporary clip-in supplements before sleeping to prevent overnight breakages.
Since extensions are genuine human hair, they can burn as easily as your own. Use a thermal-protectant spray before styling with hot tools to prevent frizz and heat damage. Set your curling or flat iron to about 350 degrees. Some tools can reach sweltering readings up to 500 degrees, but don’t let yours exceed 380. Instead of pausing your iron on a clamped section, let it glide through strands quickly to avoid scorching effects.
Salt water and chlorine can damage your extensions, so protect them under a swim cap. Washing your hair right after every refreshing dip will remove any harmful chemicals that infiltrated your cap.
A trained stylist should replace sewn-in extensions after you’ve worn them between eight and 10 weeks. Longer intervals will make your natural hair underneath grow in matted. Keep using clip-in sections while they maintain their shape and healthy look. Storing temporary pieces in breathable materials like cotton will prolong their usage.
Detaching permanent extensions isn’t a do-it-yourself task. Protecting your natural locks from damage is crucial. So schedule an appointment with a professional stylist to handle your AiryHair removal at a salon.
