Summer is the perfect time to flaunt long and luscious hair extensions that you got at Fluff, but harsh weather conditions can take a toll on both your natural hair and extensions. If you want to keep your hair and extensions healthy this summer, here are some useful tips from Brittany, Fluff’s Denver beauty editor:
- Protect Your Extensions from Sun Damage
Just like your skin, your hair and extensions need protection from the sun’s harmful rays. However, avoid using chemical sunscreens that contain Avobenzone and Octocrylene, as they can cause discoloration and a pinkish tone to your hair and highlights. Instead, use mineral sunscreen, which lacks these harmful ingredients and won’t affect your extensions or highlights.
- Swim Safely with Your Hair Extensions
Before jumping into the pool or ocean, wet your hair and apply a leave-in conditioner to prevent dryness and discoloration caused by mineral deposits in the water. You can keep your hair off your face and neck by putting it in a ponytail, bun, or braid. Rinse your hair thoroughly with clean water immediately after swimming to remove any chlorine or saltwater residue. Some recommended products are Alter Ego Italy Urban Proof cream, All-In-One Leave in conditioner, and SheWonder Shaping Mask.
- Hydrate Your Hair and Extensions
The summer heat can be harsh on your extensions and natural hair, leading to dryness and damage. Keep your hair healthy and hydrated by using leave-in conditioners, hydrating balms, and hair oils. Apply these products to the ends of your hair, not your roots, and look for products with heat protectant to keep your hair from drying out. Try using Alter Ego Italy SheWonder Shine Elixir and All-In-One Leave-In Conditioner to keep your hair soft, silky, and healthy.
- Brush Your Hair Regularly
Brushing your hair regularly is essential for preventing tangling and matting. Use a brush with soft bristles, and start brushing from the bottom up, working your way to the top. Brush each row individually, starting from the middle and moving towards the weft. Don’t forget to brush your hair before showering to avoid tangling as you wash your hair.
- Use Heat Tools Sparingly
Heat tools, paired with the summer heat, can be damaging to your extensions and natural hair. If you must heat style, make sure to use a heat protector and keep your hot tools on a medium to low setting to avoid any damage.
By following these tips, you can maintain healthy and luscious hair and extensions all summer long. Don’t let the harsh weather ruin your hair and get in the way of your summer fun. Take care of your hair, and you’ll be sure to turn heads wherever you go!
