It’s easy to see why you think having hair extensions would be difficult to maintain, but the truth is with the best quality hair extensions, maintaining them is easy with a few golden rules!
Adding hair extensions is a commitment, a commitment to caring for your own hair and the extensions to ensure the safety of your hair. Some of our maintenance advice you may already practice such as blow drying your hair after washing it. There are just a few manageable changes we ask clients to make to ensure the safety and health of your own hair. All of the maintenance advice we give for extensions is completely achievable to add into your everyday routine.
Our most important maintenance advice:
Do not exceed the wear time or your specific method- your hair is not designed to wear these hair extensions for more than a recommended period of time without being removed and refitted.
At Vixen and Blush we offer 4 different types of hair extensions: Micro Rings,Micro Bonds, Tape and Clip In extensions. Each method has a different wear time depending if you opt for a semi permanent or permanent method. Our Micro Rings and Micro Bonds are a permanent method worn for 3 months before being removed and refitted. Tape extensions are more semi-permanent method and last between 6-8 weeks and Clip In extensions are a temporary method which last for many years and can be clipped in and out when you need that extra boost.
Do not over-direct your hair extensions. They are fitted facing down so do not pull them up into a high bun or ponytail – this can cause too much tension on your own hair strands.
When styling your hair our golden rule is no high buns or ponytails. You can style your hair into a low ponytail, bun, plait of opt for half up half down look. For more inspiration on how to style your extensions visit our instagram page!
Always blow dry your hair and do not leave the connection areas damp or wet for any length of time.
It’s important to always blow dry the top of your extensions and not leave your hair to dry naturally.
Use the correct hairbrush, we advise a tangle teezer and do not be afraid to brush your hair but be gentle near the connections and brush over them lightly.
It’s important to use the correct shampoos, conditioners and hair brushes with your hair extensions to ensure they are kept in the best condition.
Getting used to the routine of taking care of your hair extensions means in turn you are taking better care of your own hair.
