Care for Hair Extensions
Your in Las Vegas and want to make the most of it. Problem is that sun, sweat, and chlorine can damage a naturally silky head of hair, and for those of us with hair extensions, summer can turn your hair do into a tangled disaster.
Permanent or tape hair extensions require extra care, and each faces different challenges during the summer. For permanents – the biggest threat is water. It’s OK to go swimming, but don’t allow extensions to soak in water for too long, and dry them as soon as you get out of the pool. Rough-drying the bonded areas every time they get wet to help extensions last longer. For tape extensions, it’s sun and skin-care products that pose the biggest threat. Lotions tends to get in the hairline and can cause the tape in the corners to come loose. Wash or rinse your hands after applying lotions to avoid depositing any residue from your products on your hair, which may cause the tape to slip.
Key things to do during your summer trip: (i) handle your hair gently; (ii) use sulfate-free products; (iii) brushing regularly; (iv) go to Original Diva for treatments on an as-needed basis; (v) for tape extensions – avoid applying conditioner at the roots; use special extension-friendly brush in the vicinity of the bonds or tape; (vi) leave-in conditioners will help keep your extensions from getting tangled and dried out; (vii) detanglers targeted towards the lengths and ends of your hair also help.
