The dog days of summer are upon us ladies, and you know what that means! Summer vacations, pool parties, and family cookouts. From highlights, braids and beach waves, you will have the best summer hairstyles around.
Although, if you’re not careful with your hair extensions, they could go from fly to fried! Nobody wants that, so let’s look at a few tips on keeping them protected from sand, sea and sun all summer long!
Swimming is a No-Go for Clip-In Hair Extensions!
This is probably the most important tip, and it sucks, but it will save you a ton of time and headache. You do not want to go swimming with your clip-in hair extensions. It’s a recipe for disaster! This goes for both the pool and the beach water.
The salt and chlorine in the water will dry out and damage your hair extensions. You will end up spending hours trying to untangle your natural from the extension, it’s not worth it, so just try avoiding it all together.
Wave Goodbye to Salt Sprays!
So, you want those amazing beach waves you saw Blake Lively sporting last summer? The real question is, how do you accomplish that wavy style without damaging your brand new fabulous Jadore extensions Australia clip-ins?
The very first thing that comes to mind are those favourite mermaid sea salt spray’s that have been all the craze, but for those who rock out hair-extension, you need to stay far away from them! These particular sprays have sea salt in them which damages your natural hair and your hair extensions.
They also have alcohol in them, which means double the tangles, frizziness and dryness. Look for a keratin-infused leave-in conditioner and just soak the hair, massage it up with your hands, and you’re all set.
Too Hot to Handle for Your Hair Extensions!
Continuous heat from the intense Aussie summer sun can easily and quickly dry out your clip-in hair extension leaving them looking a lot less than perfect. Use a keratin-infused conditioner and make sure that you soak your extensions and start at the ends and work your way up.
You can achieve optimal results by leaving the conditioner on overnight before rinsing them. Deep conditioning is essential for keeping your hair extensions (and your natural hair) hydrated and moisturised during the summer.
Just in case things don’t go as planned, if you are headed to the pool or beach with your hair extensions in, wearing them in a bun or braid will help minimise damage and tangling. Be mindful of products, as many products contain sulphate and other yucky chemicals that your extensions don’t like.
