Hi babes, we’re moving away from fashion today to talk hair extensions. I’ve only used hair extensions twice in my life (actually, one of them was for this post), and both times I loved them! They give you length, they give you volume, sassiness and a whole new look in a matter of minutes.
I’ve run into people who would ask me if those hair extensions didn’t damage my hair, and my straightforward answer was “no”. Why would they? If placed properly and taken out with care that same day, they’re any more dangerous than a hair clip.
«You like my hair? Gee thanks, just bought it..»
First off, you have to find trustworthy sites or salons which offer quality hair for their products. Remy hair is the highest quality of 100 % human hair available to consumers. Remy hair is exceptional because of how it’s harvested. Strands of hair are placed from root to tip and are minimally processed to keep the cuticle of the hair intact which keeps the hair from shedding and helps to create stronger and smoother extensions. There are sites such as Amazing Beauty Hair Extensions* that sell this kind of hair for both their tape in and clip in hair extensions.
Now that you’ve secured the quality of your extensions, the focus is on you. Clip-in hair extensions are the safest ones because they don’t pull out your hair. You just carefully have to take them out at night, and only wear them occasionally when you want to enhance the length and volume of your hair. All in all, if clipped in properly and not used on a daily basis, clip-in hair extensions cause absolutely no damage to your hair.
According Elle Magazine, the main rules for taking care of your extensions are:
- Avoid oiliness at the roots to prevent the connections from slipping or going sticky.
- No inverting your head upside down head or in high ponytails as this pulls on the underside of the connection.
- No aggressive pulling.
Otherwise, washing, drying and styling hair extensions is very much the same as with your natural hair as long as they’re good quality.
