They are great for adding volume and/or length, and can also be used as a protective style when installed and cared for properly. But it comes to frigid temperatures, it can be a bit difficult to maintain the look of your tresses. In this article, I will give you tips on how to care for your hair extensions in cold weather.
Maintain your natural hair Perhaps the most important tip is to make sure you take care of your natural hair while wearing extensions. Below, is an outline of proper maintenance according to the hair extension you choose:
Protect your Faux Tresses You will want to try and prevent your hair extensions from getting wet, therefore, use dry shampoo to keep them clean. This will help to maintain the texture and prevent frizzing. Be sure to keep the hair tied up loosely in a bun or a ponytail whenever it snows and rains. You may also wrapping it. And on windy days, put on a loose-fitting hat to protect your extensions. Also, be careful to not let your hair extensions get pulled or zipped into your coat. When it comes to everyday maintenance, you should try and consistently keep your extensions well-groomed, as you would do with your natural hair. Always use wide-tooth combs and flat paddle brushes when managing your extensions. And without exception, it is best to avoid using excessive heat as this can cause shedding. I repeat: LESS HEAT. Lastly, stay away from using hair bands that fit too tight. Keep in mind that hair extensions should be treated with extra care as they are temporary, and not permanent. Although they do not last forever, you can maintain the lifespan by following these simple steps that have been outlined in this article.
