Did you know that it’s just as important to take care of your hair extensions while you’re asleep as it is during the day? Bedtime Hair Care is just as important as daytime hair care! That’s because hair extensions can easily be damaged by excessive tossing or turning while sleeping. They can also be damaged by not following proper bedtime routines, such as going to bed with wet hair extensions, which can lead to tangled hair.
While many of us dread having another routine to add on to our day, it is important to understand that to have healthy and natural looking extensions you have to put in a little extra time and effort to take care of them. Here are just a few of the bedtime hair care routines that will lengthen the life and look of your hair extensions:
Avoid tangles and matting by braiding hair or putting it in a ponytail. If your hair extensions are long enough to braid, do it! Just be sure to make it a loose braid. If your hair isn’t long enough to braid, a ponytail will do just fine. Remember to use snag-free hair ties, and if possible, tuck your ponytail under itself to further prevent friction and tangling.
Consider using a silk scarf or silk/satin pillowcase. Believe it or not, the smooth and slippery texture of silk will reduce friction.
Air dry on occasion. You should never sleep with wet hair extensions, but instead of applying heat to your hair several times a week, try showering a couple of hours before and letting your hair air-dry before going to bed. Your hair will thank you, and you’ll love not having an extra task to do before bed.
Use deep conditioners and hair masks. These products help keep your hair extensions smooth and shiny-looking. Do your research to find out which ones are the most highly recommended, and put it in before you go to bed. You’ll love waking up to great looking hair!. Aqua Hair Extensions Conditioner can be used as a deep conditioner by being left on the hair for 10-15 minutes.
These simple tips will help you enjoy your hair extensions for longer and really don’t take that much time at all. Along with the aforementioned tips, you will also want to make sure you brush your hair carefully with a hair extension brush throughout the day and before putting it up or into a braid. Just don’t over-brush as this can cause breakage due to friction.
