Your Extensions Can Look Great All Summer
If you’re into instant gratification, there’s no quicker way to get the hairstyle you want than by opting for hair extensions. There’s no waiting for your hair to grow out, and no chemical processing to give it more volume and texture or those special highlights you’ve been wanting. All it takes is a single relaxing appointment, and voila! You have the hairstyle you want in time for pre-dinner cocktails.
And summer is an excellent time to try out hair extensions whether you’re dreaming about mermaid hair or adding some oomph to your current style. With a huge range of lengths, colors and textures available, there is literally something for everyone. There’s even no need to worry about hot, humid weather. With a little forethought, both your extensions and your natural hair will enjoy a beautiful summer.
The big four threats to hair of any kind, whether we’re talking about extensions or natural hair, are sun, salt, sweat and chlorine. For long styles, consider opting for a low bun or a loose braid to keep hair from tangling when you know you’ll be out and about in the breeze, or engaging in lively activities. Try to avoid ponytails, though – these can add tension to the bonds on your extensions and the keratin bonds in your natural hair. After swimming, rinse your hair in fresh water as soon as possible, and give it a gentle dry with a towel, especially in the areas where your bonds are.
Be sure to use sulfate-free haircare products, and consider using a leave-in conditioner, too. Summer hair of all sorts needs moisture to help protect it from those four threats. Brushing your hair on a daily basis is a good habit too. It will help distribute your natural hair oils along the shaft of your hair and keep it tangle-free, but be sure to use an extension-safe brush to protect the bonds. Your stylist can recommend the best products for you to use.
