7 Ways to Make Human Hair Last Longer
Human hair extensions are made from actual human hair. That is, they are gotten from human donors from different parts of the world: India, Europe, Brazil, etc. So that means taking care of human hair extension is just like taking care of your own hair. You can use the same tools you use for your hair and wash about the same way you would wash your hair. The only difference is that the products you use has to be the ones made specifically for it.
Normally, human hair lasts up to 1 year. But if you take very good care of it, you can use it for up to 3 years before it wears out. Here are 7 ways to care for human hair extensions to keep them strong and make them last for a long period of time.
1. Shampoo It
Just like you would your hair, wash your human hair extension will shampoo to keep it clean, healthy, and to maintain its feel. Use dry shampoo; it refurbishes it while maintaining its strength and quality.
2. Condition It
The purpose of conditioning is to keep hair moisturized. But some conditioners contain ingredients that both wash and moisturize hair. Use human-hair-specific conditioners to condition the hair to help it maintain its feel and shine.
3. Don’t Overwash
Overwashing the hair will weaken it and it will wear out before time. So wash, but don’t overdo it. And be gentle when you wash.
4. Watch the Heat
Human hair extensions are heat-resistant but there’s a limit to everything. If you use heat tools, put a handle on the frequency of usage. Too much exposure to heat will weaken the strands. And when you heat, avoid the roots as that will definitely cause damage.
5. Use the Appropriate Products
Only use products meant for human hair extensions. They contain ingredients that nourish the hair and keep it healthy. You know it doesn’t have the luxury of an oil-producing scalp like your natural hair, so you need make up for that by using products that will nourish it and keep it healthy for as long as possible.
6. Store It Right
The way you store human hair will determine how long it will last. If, everytime you pull it, you just dump it anywhere, you expose it to elements that can weaken and damage it. The best this is to put it on a wig hanger; you can retain its style this way. Or you can put it in the box it came with if you don’t have a wg hanger. Don’t leave it in damp or hot environment.
7. Before You Sleep
Finally, don’t wear it to bed. Remove it, comb and detangle it, then put it on a wig hanger. If there is no wig hanger, tie the ends, roll it, and put it in the box it came with.
So, there you have it. Follow these tips and you’ll be having fun with your human hair extension for the longest time.
