LeModish Hair extension styling tips
To style hair extensions, use a looper brush, or a smooth styling comb. Start at the ends and gently work your way up, brushing or combing in a downward motion. Use alcohol-free styling products on hair extensions. Avoid over-use to prevent product build-up. Generally, heated styling appliances can only be used on 100% human hair extensions. Use conditioning ionic ceramic heat styling tools, whenever possible. Always do a test curl first, and use the lowest temperature level that is effective. Overuse of curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers will shorten the life of human hair extensions. Heated curling or straightening irons should never be used on synthetic hair.
All hair extensions have gone through a very intense chemical color process to get to their final color, so changing the color will not produce accurate results. Sun, sweat, salt water, and chlorine can damage a naturally silky head of hair, and for those of us with hair extensions, summer can turn those extra waves into a tangled disaster. Given the investment—several hundred dollars for the raw materials alone—that's certainly something to avoid.
The hair that extensions are made of can be treated just like your regular hair. It's the bonds or tape that are fragile and require extra care, and each faces different challenges duringthe summer. For bonded extensions, the biggest threat is water. When it comes to tape-in extensions, it's actually your sun- and skin-care products that pose the biggest threat. 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.
Just like your natural hair, extensions should be handled gently, no matter the season. With tape-in extensions, avoid using conditioner at the roots. Keep the applied conditioner one to two inches away from the tape to avoid adding any additional moisture to the tape that may cause them to loosen or slip. Most important, be gentle while washing.
When it comes to summer product picks, leave-in conditioners will help keep your extensions from getting tangled and dried out.
