The Dos and Don'ts of Hair Extensions

Posted:
Two weeks ago, we introduced you to our new Ember Hair extensions and this week we want to give you some insight on how to take care of them. While many of these hair extension dos and don’ts will work for any type of extension, our stylist Tessa has some insight specifically for your new Post Hair extensions. One of the main things she suggests is always remember what you’re getting yourself into. Hair extensions are a commitment and at Post Hair Company, we are committed to giving you the best hair for you. Read on to find out the dos and don’ts from our stylist Tessa.



Dos

 
Brush your hair every night before you go to bed.
 You can even put it in a loose braid to avoid tangling throughout the night.
 
Treat your hair well. 
If you are biking or doing any activity where your hair is whipping around, be sure to put it in a braid or loose ponytail.
 
Purchase a Wet Brush or Knot Genie. 
Something that is specified for children is made to be gentle on the hair and it won’t rip through your knots and tangles.
 
Keep your hair at it’s natural fall. 
When you wear your hair up for long periods of time, it’s a lot of weight to put on the bonds of the hair extensions. Always keep it down or up loosely.
 
Remove your extensions or braid your hair before going in chlorine.
 If you know you have a big trip planned, your Post Hair stylist can remove your extensions and replace them after you’ve returned. Chlorine and the ocean will only cause damage to your extensions. Every 4-6 weeks you will need to come in to have your extensions adjusted.
 
Understand the investment you’re making.
Hair extensions aren’t a one and done thing, it is a huge commitment on both your part and on the stylist. Always follow your stylist’s instructions to achieve the best hair result.
 

Don’ts

 
Wash your hair every night.
You should be washing your hair only once or twice a week.
 
Color your hair extensions.
If you are committing to hair extensions, be sure you have the hair color you’d like to have for awhile. If anything, you can color your extensions darker but lighter will only cause damage.
 
Use certain products.
It is best to follow the care instructions from your stylist. It is not recommended to use volumizing products, dry shampoos or any oils on your extensions and always stay away from using products at your roots.
