Summer is upon us gals, and you know what that means! Family bbq’s, trips to the beach and summer vacations, oh yes, summer is without a doubt, most people’s favourite time of year.
From braids, highlights, lowlights to waves, you’ll sport the best hairstyles on the beach this summer. However, if you’re not careful with your extensions, it is possible that they will most likely go from super fly to completely fried in no time, and you don’t want that to happen! So let’s look at a few tips on how you can protect your extensions from sea, sand and sun throughout the entire summer!
Swimming is a No-No
The last thing you want to do is to go swimming with your clip-in hair extensions. Sea salt and chlorine in the water will damage your hair extensions by significantly drying them out. That’s not it — your hair will get insanely tangled too! You will end up spending hours on end trying to untangle your natural hair from your extensions, so its best to just avoid it all together.
Say So Long to Salt Sprays!
Salt spray’s have been all the rave lately, but for hair-extension wearing ladies, its best to stay as far away as possible from them. Salt sprays consist of sea salt which damages your hair extensions as well as your natural hair. These sprays contain alcohol too, which can only lead to frizzy, dry and tangled hair!
Instead of using salt sprays you should try using a keratin-infused leave-in conditioner. All you need to do is give your hair a good soak, scrunch it up, and you’re good to go. You’ve got beautiful bold, beach hair that’s full of body without all of those nasty chemicals. Plus, you get to show off the cutest bathing suits and the coolest hairstyles with EH Hair Extensions!
Too Hot to Handle for Your Hair Extensions!
You probably already know how the sun’s intense and harmful UV rays can be on your skin, but did you know it is also harmful to your hair extensions too? The continuous heat from the sun can quickly dry out your hair extensions. The trouble is, it’s not that easy to avoid now, is it? Thankfully you can fight it by applying a deep conditioner to your extensions regularly. You can expect optimal results by leaving the hair conditioner on overnight and rinsing them out in the morning.
For the case that things don’t go as planned, if you are headed to the pool or beach or with your extensions in, wear them up in a braid or bun to help minimise damage and tangling. Ensure that you pay close attention to the labels on products you buy because several products have sulfate and other nasty chemicals in them that your hair extensions don’t like.
