At Mimtee Exclusive Hair Collections whether you are new to hair extensions or have used one before, we believe it is always a good idea to refresh your memory on how to properly care for your extension. Getting into a good hair routine from start will not only save you money, but will also give you that glam as you let your goddess shine from within. Good hair habits equal longer lasting hair extension.
One of the most important things to remember is to ensure you are using the right product for your hair extension, be sure to always read the label and check the ingredients to ensure you are using sulphate free shampoo.
Hair extensions are sewn, microlinked or taped in, you can wash them along with your natural hair in the shower, but be gentle to avoid loosening your extensions. If you are too rough with them they will not last you long enough. Treat extension hairs the same way you will care for your own natural hair.
Shampooing your hair before installation is highly recommend.
Brush or comb throughout before style, starting at the bottom and then detangling near the roots to brush through your hair, this helps nutrients from the scalp get to the end hair maintaining an even sheen.
Using styling aids that are sulfate-free and alcohol-free is recommended.
When running or doing aerobic exercises, tie your hair up in a ponytail. This not only keeps your neck cool but reduces the amount of sweat and oil buildup that will damage your extension.
It is possible to swim while wearing extension, but avoid long exposure to chlorine and salt water. Wearing a swimming cap is the best way to ensure your extensions are protected.
