Hair Extensions Aftercare

Hair Extensions Aftercare Guide

Welcome to Oh My Hair's comprehensive guide to maintaining your gorgeous hair extensions. Ensuring the longevity and beauty of your extensions is paramount to us, and with the right care, you can keep them looking fabulous for as long as possible. Follow these essential aftercare tips to maintain the health and vitality of your extensions.

Always Follow these steps

Dry Your Extensions Properly

After washing your hair, it's crucial to dry your extensions thoroughly. Leaving your hair or sleeping on your extensions while they're wet can cause them to slip. We recommend gently patting your extensions dry with a towel and then using a hairdryer on a low heat setting to ensure they are completely dry.

Protect from UV Rays

Exposure to UV rays can significantly affect the colour and condition of your hair extensions. Avoid using sunbeds and minimise direct sunlight exposure to prevent colour alteration and deterioration of your extensions.

Consider wearing a hat or using UV-protectant sprays designed for hair to keep your extensions in top condition.

Avoid Chlorine

Chlorine can dry out and fade the colour of your extensions. We advise avoiding swimming in chlorinated pools or, if unavoidable, wearing a swimming cap to protect your hair.

Always rinse your hair with fresh water immediately after swimming to minimise chlorine damage.

Gentle Styling

To prevent slipping and tension on your natural hair, avoid wearing your extensions in tight hairstyles. Opt for loose, gentle styles to maintain the integrity of your extensions and reduce strain on your scalp.

Use Sulphate-Free Products

Sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner are gentler on your extensions and help maintain their natural moisture balance. We recommend using Remi Cachet products or consulting with your stylist for personalised product recommendations.

Apply Heat Protection

Before using any heat-styling tools, always apply a heat protection spray to your extensions. This helps to minimise heat damage and keeps your extensions looking healthy and vibrant.

Brush with Care

Use a soft bristle brush or a special extension brush to detangle your hair gently. Starting from the ends and working your way up can help avoid matting and reduce stress on the extensions.

Regular Maintenance Appointments

Schedule maintenance appointments every 6 - 8 weeks to ensure your extensions are in perfect condition. Please arrive at your appointment with your hair freshly washed and dried to allow for the best possible maintenance service.

Nighttime Care

Last but definitely not least, don't forget about nighttime care. Consider loosely braiding your hair or tying it in a soft ponytail to prevent tangling while you sleep. A silk or satin pillowcase can also work wonders in keeping your extensions smooth and reducing friction.

With a little bit of tender loving care, your extensions will keep you looking absolutely stunning for longer. It's not just about the initial fitting; it's about lovingly maintaining them afterwards. Should you have any questions or if you're in need of further advice, don't hesitate to drop us a line. We're here to ensure your hair game is as strong as ever.
