Perhaps this scenario sounds a little redundant: you choose your hair extensions to blend in naturally with your hair- not stand out. If you don’t take care of your own hair, however, your extensions will stand out against your own damaged hair- especially if you have human hair extensions. To avoid having hair that looks unhealthy and inconsistent, you pay special attention to your locks during the winter, a season where the harsh elements are notorious for drying and damaging your strands. Luckily there are many affordable products you can incorporate into your beauty regimen to keep all of your hair- natural or purchased- looking vibrant and healthy.
Improving the Health of Your Hair: What to Stop Doing and What to Start Doing
Its basic science: if something is dry, then it lacks moisture. We know there are many ways that hair can become dry and brittle such as shampooing too frequently, exposing hair to too much heat with hair dryers, curling irons, and straighteners, and using products that contain alcohol. These are all things that you can stop doing to change and improve the health of your hair. In addition to changing your diet and getting regular haircuts, there is another thing you can start doing to hydrate your hair: deep conditioning.
Conditioners extend beyond your basic bottle of Pantene available for purchase at every drugstore. Nowadays there are many treatments at the drugstore, however, that can treat dry, damaged hair. Hair masques typically come in small jars and can be the perfect solution for repairing damaged hair; they’ve become so popular, in fact, that many name brand companies are producing them (you can usually find them on the same shelf along with other items by that brand).
Hair masques should be applied about once a week to prevent frizz and breakage and to make hair soft and shiny. Masques typically contain naturally moisturizing ingredients like shea butter or avocado oil. The masque should be applied to damp hair typically outside of the shower because they need time to sit and penetrate the hair unlike regular conditioner; they should be rinsed out after the recommended amount of time so that hair does not become greasy.
If the cost of a hair masque concerns you, you can make your own at home using ingredients such as egg whites, avocados, or olive oil. Whichever option you choose, remember: you spent the money for quality hair extensions, so you should put in the time and effort to take care of them and your hair in general.
