How to Take Care of Your Hair Extensions Properly
There’s no better feeling than leaving the salon with new and fresh hair extensions. At Fabio Scalia Salon in New York City, we offer Great Lengths – the most luxurious extensions on the market, made from ethically sourced, fully traceable non-chemically treated human hair. Knowing how to take care of your new strands can be confusing but no need to panic! In this week’s blog post, our stylist Luis Miller explains how to take care of your extensions properly in between salon visits.
Luis, in a previous blog post we’ve touched the topic of taking care of your extensions. What is your tip for clients who just had them done?
Clients who have never had extensions before tend to have this idea that the upkeep of hair extensions is very hard and tedious work, however, that is far from true. What I tell all my new clients is that the key to maintaining beautiful extensions is brushing! You have to brush your hair extensions daily, twice a day if needed. Always brush your extensions when they are dry, section by section, with movements away from the bond.
Before and after by Luis Miller
What about products? Should you use specific ones for the extensions?
I would suggest investing in a good quality paddle brush, other than that some dry shampoo or dry spray will take you a long way. Avoid using greasy products.
Got it! How often are you supposed to wash your hair with them in?
Continue washing your hair as you normally would. Two or three times a week is good, just remember not to apply direct heat to the bond when you are blow drying and styling your hair. Other than that just have fun with them.
