Look after your vietnam hair extension
Your aftercare routine will play a major role in the life of your Vietnam hair extensions, which is why it is so important to understand how to look after your hair extensions correctly.
There’s lots of information available online regarding the correct care and maintenance of hair extensions, it can sometimes be difficult to know what routine to follow.
Here we identify the key elements that form a good hair extensions aftercare routine, which should help to keep your hair extensions in perfect condition throughout the time you are wearing them.
Do not over-wash your hair extensions
Vietnam hair extensions don’t need to be washed as much as your natural hair. The less you wash your extensions, the longer they will last. Whilst natural hair needs regular washing due to oil being produced from the scalp, Vietnam hair extensions are not attached to your scalp and therefore do not endure the same oil build-up and only need washing when there is too much product in them. We find it is best to wash your hair extensions every 15-20 wears. Bottom line is, how often you wash your extensions is mostly down to your personal routine, so it’s important you pay close attention on the quality of your extensions. If your extensions feel like they’re becoming increasingly difficult to style, this is a likely a sign that there is product build-up and they need to be washed.
Secure your Vietnam hair extensions before sleeping
To make your hair easy to brush in the morning, securing your hair extensions before you sleep is essential. This will make styling your hair the following day much easier, stopping you from having to detangle your hair which can put pressure on the hair extension bonds. If you share a bed, this will also stop the hair extensions becoming trapped or pulled during the night.
Storage your Vietnam hair extension carefully
Your freshly shampooed and conditioned Vietnam remy hair extension should be stored in a cool dry place. Ensure the storage is away from sunlight as sun rays fade the locks. Your storage container should be large enough to hold the hair in its shape.
Ensure you place them as flat straight and neat as possible. You could also store the Vietnam hair extension in your closet on a hanger or in a drawer as long as the hair is not disturbed and the closet remains dry. Allow the hair extension to have enough air circulation so that it does not get the smell of whatever surrounds it. Another option is to store your clean, dry, weave in plastic bags or a plastic storage container.
Pick a container that is large enough to provide adequate space for the extensions to breathe and remain neat. Ensure, ho wever, that you use a sufficiently sized package so that the hair doesn’t get handled roughly. Place it into the packaging in a neat and tidy arrangement.
And last but not least
Remember everyone’s hair is different, so it’s always best to keep an eye on your own natural hair and your extensions to see how often they need to be washed and which products are best to use. Like natural Vietnam hair, the best way to reduce damage is to keep things as hands-off as possible and to avoid over-styling and over-washing.
