The main problem that you may face after buying clip in hair extensions for yourself is that they get dry. Because extensions do not receive essential natural oils, as they are not attached to our scalp, therefore they tend to dry by passing time due to washing, ironing and blow drying. Deep conditioning is necessary to protect them from wear and tear. The conditioner should be protein and silicon free as these ingredients aggravate the problem of dry hair. Always use conditioner after shampooing and leave your hair for a few minutes before rinsing. Proper conditioning keeps your artificial hair softer and shinier.
The hair extensions may incorporate either artificial or natural hair. The natural or synthetic hair pieces enhance your hair by giving them volume, length and color. You can adopt various hair textures other than on your own as these hair extensions are safe to use without damaging your hair. As hair extensions are gone under heavy treatment for uniform color and texture, use of a mild shampoo and a light conditioner, having absolutely no sulphates, is recommended for shampooing your hair extensions just as you do with your real hair and to reduce the tangling.
Once a week shampooing is fine to keep the remy hair extensions clean as there is no need to wash them every day. Synthetic or silicon based hair extensions are more prone to breakage or hair loss if washed too often. Rinse your hair with lukewarm water, neither too hot nor too cold, as it prevents the matting and excessive tangles. Try to avoid brushing the wet extensions otherwise they will fall out too much. Gently comb the hair extensions with a wide tooth comb to untangle the knots. By tying them into a neat ponytail you can avoid the further knotting or tangling.
