What Product Should I Avoid Using on Hair Extensions?

You will want your Amazing Beauty Hair extensions to last for as long as possible.   To do this there are certain products that should be avoided because they will damage the hair leaving it dry and frizzy.  Avoid all hair products that contain sulfate and alcohol and any products that have the following on the ingredients list SLS, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Alcohol denat, Ethanol, SD alcohol 40, Propanol, Isopropyl, and Propyl.  You can check for these ingredients by simply turning over the bottle!  These are all baddies for the hair as they will literally strip your hair of it’s natural oils, so your hair will dry out super fast.  Look for sulfate free and alcohol free products, they may cost a little extra but in the long run they will save you money because your lovely ABH extensions are going to last that much longer.

Hair Products

Sticky Products should also be avoided as much as possible.  Products such as gels, waxes and heavy oils will clog up your extensions so you will need to wash them more frequently.  You really only want to wash your permanent extensions every few days to keep them healthy.  Also, even when using these heavy styling products on your natural hair, they will transfer onto your extensions.  Your extensions already look super glossy and shiny when they arrive so there shouldn’t be much need to use a lot of products anyway.  When it comes to hairspray, look for lightweight formulas that won’t drag your hair down.
