Hair extensions do not produce their own oils. Over a period of time, the extension can dry, becoming brittle and less attractive.
One of the main keys to prolonging the lifespan of your extensions is to rehydrate and protect. We moisturise our skin, so why not the hair? A good moisturising barrier will do just this. The best moisture for hair is actually water.
Water is good internally and externally for hair. Internally a well-hydrated body means that there is sufficient moisture for hair function, externally it means that the hair can maintain elasticity and suppleness. As extensions are not fed by the body, it is essential to hydrate and feed them manually. For moisturizing your extensions, water is the king. However, your extensions are
porous and keeping this moisture in is next to impossible without sealing it in.
Trapping Moisture In The Extensions
The best way to trap moisture in your extensions is to use a sealant. Moisturisers/sealants are made of large molecules. These molecules are too large to be absorbed by the hair strand. Instead what they do is coat the strands and seal in the moisture that is already in the hair. So the key to avoiding dry extensions is to hydrate and seal – but without using/suffering from the drying
effects of products that are not designed to help. A good moisturising coat does not just seal, it also enhances the brilliance and lustre of your natural hair colour.
Our shampoo, conditioner and treatments coat, seal, help restore and add shine.
After wetting the hair, apply a small amount of shampoo. Gently lather, allowing the foam to spread down the body of your hair and extensions. Do not tug at your extensions. Lather at the root and allow the foam to cleanse your extensions.
