Human hair extensions come glistening and shiny, but how do you keep them that way? We've covered tips on how to keep your hair beautiful before, but we're back to provide you with even more relevant reminders on how to take care of your lovely locks. You don't want to be the girl who has split ends and dry looking hair. Instead you want to be complimented for brilliant hair that is seen looking glittery from miles away. Here are a few tips that you might have never thought of to keep your hair extensions looking new and beautiful.
Washing your hair at least every other day is an important step to maintaining your hair's health. Look for shine-enhancing shampoo and conditioner that contain ingredients like olive oil, jojoba, and rice proteins.
If you feel that your hair needs to be refreshed in between your wash, spritz it with with water and let it dry naturally or invest in a dry shampoo from a quality brand name. As we've covered before, be careful abou the amount of product you use in your hair because you don't want it to continuously build up. It will take away from your hair extension's natural luster.
Rotate a Band in Your Hair
Did you know that having a band in your hair for a ponytail or hair bun can cause your hair to break? To prevent this from happening rotate the band throughout the day or everyday so that it is not placed in the same location every single time you pile your hair up on your head. Seamless bands are recommended because they are made without a metal piece. A metal piece in a hair band can easily result in broken ends in your hair. It may seem like something that is over the top, but all of the little tips we are listing can help your hair overall if you take them into consideration.
Of course it's important to brush your hair, but unfortunately the more you brush it, the more at risk you are for getting split ends. Keep your hair healthy and shiny by brushing through it only a few times during the day. As we've mentioned before, separate your hair into 2" sections so that each section of hair doesn't rub against the other section. Brush your hair from roots to tips on every single section of hair carefully and gently.
Nourish Your Scalp
Yes, your scalp plays a huge part in your hair's health. Have someone massage your head or occasionally get a massage to produce more blood flow to your head and scalp. The more blood flow, the better your scalp will feel. The condition of your scalp will also improve. Additionally, you can use a leave-in scalp treatment for extra nourishment to create locks that will be full of luster.
Winter is approaching and now is the chance to take care of your locks. You won't see the sun as often so your hair won't be as damaged by the rays. However, chemicals from hair products can still damage your hair so be aware of what you are putting into your hair! Hair products will build up over time and result in damaged hair as opposed to shiny hair! Glistening hair may take a lot of effort, but in the end it will be all worth your while. Your hair will look healthy and in reality it is now healthy because you've taken the extra steps needed to care for it.
