Oops… I Did it Again! – Common Hair Extension Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Hi Fluff fans! Have you ever had one of those “Oh no!” hair moments? Welp, you’re not alone! We at Fluff Hair Extensions Studio have heard it all. So, let’s dive into some of the most common hair extension mistakes and how to dodge them.
The Tug-of-War Mishap
Much of our staff at the time would probably remember… Well, let’s call her ‘Jane’. She loved her new extensions, but the combing… argh! She’d yank her brush through her hair like she was deep sea fishing and caught a monster of a fish! In the end, her extensions suffered, and so did her natural hair. The lesson? She finally got it right with a lot of coaching, as she figured out she should always hold the extensions with one hand while gently combing from the ends and working her way up with the other. A natural boar bristle detangling brush can be your best friend!
Like a Desert Situation
Then there was a client of ours who thought washing extensions daily was a good idea (she got her extensions somewhere else so didn’t have the advantage of a Fluff consultation!). She ended up with extensions as dry as the Sahara. Hair extensions don’t produce natural oils like our scalp, so over-washing can leave them parched. Washing 2-3 times a week is plenty, and remember Alter Ego Italys Silk Blend Oil or De-Lite Protection Oil is your hair extensions best friend!
The Product Overload Predicament
And who could forget ‘Sarah’? Though we recommended against tape-ins for someone in her line of work, where let’s just say she would get very sweaty at night, she did not listen and insisted on coupling tape-ins with sew-ins, even though her hair was naturally greasy (on top of it all). I think she also fell in love with every hair product she saw, and her extensions paid the price and her tape-ins would slip out every few days. Remember, ladies and gents, less is more when it comes to most products and tape-ins simply are not a good fit for hair that is overly oily or if you put the wrong products in your hair, or if you happen to sweat… a lot! Stick to a quality shampoo, conditioner, and a heat protectant that are approved by your trusty stylist… and if you stylist recommends against tape-ins, be sure to listen! And thanks again for the bad review when the tape-ins slipped out and for not listening to us in the first place!
