What NOT to do with your Hair Extensions

While hair extensions can offer you a longer and thicker new hair look, what many people don’t realise is that those hair extensions Gordon are definitely a commitment. And if you want to get the most out of them, there are some things that you should definitely not do. As hair extension specialists on the North Shore, we have seen our clients make many common mistakes, and we have listed them here in this blog so that you can enjoy healthy-looking extensions for longer.

Washing Too Often

Washing your hair too often is one way to get your hair extensions in a knot and can end up damaging the extensions as well as your natural hair. Of course, you still need to wash your hair but aim to not wash it every day and wash your hair as gently as possible. 

Using Too Much Product

Doing anything in access can damage your hair extensions, and this includes using too much product. Try to use a minimal amount of hair oil, shampoo and conditioner, if you have hair extensions in your hair.

Buying Cheap Extensions

There are many cheap extensions available online, but these extensions probably won’t last very long, may damage your hair, and become very easily tangled. If you want quality extensions, you’re going to have to be prepared to pay a little extra.

Putting Permanent Extensions in By Yourself

Unless you’ve had some sort of training as a hair technician, you should definitely not attempt to put hair extensions in on your own. The likelihood of you doing a mediocre job is high. By going to a professional, you can rest assured that your permanent extensions will be placed in such a way that they look natural and appealing. 

Flat Iron Too Much

Try not to use a flat iron on your hair too much if you want to extend the longevity of your extensions.
