When buying clip-in hair extensions, it is worth considering to keep their original well-groomed appearance as long as possible.
In order to be satisfied with the product longer, you simply need to adhere to several important rules when using them.
If the extensions are made of natural hair, you can treat them the same way as your own hair: curl, straighten and even color. However, do not forget that they also need nutrition. By doing this, use nutrient sprays, balms, conditioners, and masks, but make sure to avoid the roots.
In addition, you must know that cosmetics with a greasy base are contraindicated for hair extensions.

When combing hair extensions, you need to get a comb either specially designed for them or you can limit yourself to a regular hair brush. Most importantly, bristles have to be soft.
You should start combing from the ends of your hair while gradually moving up.
It will be very useful to use a moisturizing spray during combing, so the hair will be less prone to damage.
If you decide to use a straighteneror hair curler, be extremely careful – the temperature should not exceed 170 degrees. It is also recommended to use thermal protection for an additional protection to your hair.
In order for the hair not to become rigid and lose its shine, periodically they need to be washed. Before washing, it is suggested to comb the hair.
You should note that shampoos for oily hair must not be used for washing clip-in hair extensions. Instead, it is better to use a shampoo for the damaged or dry hair. It is desirable that balms and conditioners used for care contain collagen or keratin in their ingredients. This will help to prevent split ends.
Hair weft needs to be dipped into the water first, then you can apply a shampoo and wash it off. The next step is to use a balm or deep conditioning. You have to leave it for few minutes and then wash the weft in a lukewarm water.
Never squeeze or twist hair extensions, just gently pat them with a towel. Do not forget that wet hair is very easy to damage, so combing should be postponed until it dries. Then you need to hang your hair or lay it on a horizontal surface. DO NOT BLOW DRY IT! Let it air dry on its own.
It is recommended to avoid sleeping with the hair extensions on. However, if there is no other choice, either braid the hair or make a ponytail. This way hair will not get tangled.
As already mentioned above, hair extensions can be colored easily. For this purpose, you can use professional or drug store dyes or toning remedies.
I do it myself and can you. However, if you are not sure and don’t want to take any risks, then its better to get a help of professional hairstylist.
Swimming with extensions on is not advisable because the chlorine in the pool or salty seawater can greatly over dry them. But you can try to make a high hairstyle and avoid getting it wet.
Over time, hair might still lose its original appearance. In this case, you should consider the procedure of hair lamination. It can be done both in the beauty salon with the help of a professional hairdresser, or at home, simply by purchasing the necessary materials in a specialized store.
If you follow these simple rules, you can significantly increase the life time of your clip-in hair extensions.
