It’s the season of cozy blankets, soaking in the warm sun, and reading your favourite books while sipping hot chocolate. Although this sounds perfect, winter brings cold, dry weather that can be a bit too much for your precious hair extensions. The hair can get drier in this weather, so it is all the more important to care for your hair extensions as they don’t get moisture like our natural hair.
With the right amount of care and love, your human hair extensions will look and feel fresh all year round. We are here to unveil our winter hair care guide that will make your hair extensions shine and bring you all the compliments you deserve.
Caring For Your Hair Extensions In Winter
Tips for caring for your human hair extensions in winter
You should take extra precautions with your natural hair and hair extensions in the cold because cold, dry weather strips natural hair oil, leaving your hair and hair extensions brittle and flat. Your hair will be considerably worse for wear by the time summer rolls around.
Follow the hair care tips below to maintain healthy hair extensions throughout these cold weather months.
Use Extra Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner
Wash with moisturizing shampoo and conditioner
You want a shampoo and conditioner that gives your hair extensions more nutrients and moisture. To ensure that the hair retains its moisture, it is also crucial to shampoo less and condition more.
Use Argan oil-based conditioners and let them in till the mid-length of your hair extensions. Oleic and linoleic acids included in Argan oil aid in moisturizing the hair and scalp. Vitamin E enhances natural shine while preventing dryness and frizz.
Get Them Trimmed
Trim those ends to keep split ends at bay
Activities can cause split ends and break during both the summer and the winter months. Maintaining neatly trimmed hair will prevent split ends from getting worse.
Additionally, it's always a good idea to clip your natural hair before moving your extensions up or putting them in.
Don’t Go Out With Wet Hair Extensions
Wet hair extensions are a big no when stepping out.
Everyone envies their friends who leave home with wet hair immediately after a shower. It is harmful to wear your hair damp outside. Imagine what harm it can do to your hair extensions.
It is advised against stepping out with wet hair extensions as the hair is exposed and the cuticles open up. The ideal drying method is air drying, and blow drying is preferable to leaving with wet hair.
Use Styling Tools Sparingly
Use heat to a minimum when styling your human hair extensions.
You are aware of the possible harm heat styling equipment can do to your natural hair and hair extensions. We are aware of how much you value and depend on your styling supplies to enable you to produce the ideal looks. You can continue using them altogether; simply cut back to prevent drying out and damaging your natural hair and hair extensions.
Lower temperatures from your straightener or blow dryer can help maintain your hair extensions' health. In light of this, ensure your extension is totally dry before going outside into the dry and chilly air.
Also, use a heat protectant spray before using any heating tools, such as flat irons or curling rods.
Style With Hats
Wear hats to prevent frizz from the dry air
Try wearing a hat to cover your hair extensions when you're outside. Your hair will lose moisture and nutrients due to dry winter air. Natural hair and hair extensions may break. When you take off, use oil hair sprays to prevent frizz.
Use Hair Masks And Quality Products
Use hair masks to restore the lost moisture in your hair extensions.
Be sure to protect your extensions and hair by using hair products that are specifically made for hair extensions. For your hair and extensions to stay healthy during the winter, weekly hair treatments and masks are essential. These measures can keep your extensions looking fresh and feel smooth while retaining moisture and assisting in damage prevention.
Washing Hair Extensions
Use only lukewarm water to take showers.
The need to turn up the heat is high because it is cold outside. However, taking hot showers can harm your hair extensions. Similar to styling tools, hot water evaporates moisture from hair extensions, leaving them dry and susceptible to harm.
The heat can split and break hair by opening and exposing hair follicles. Avoid using hot water and shower mildly with a cool rinse. This will keep the hair extensions shiny.
Maintaining the quality and longevity of your hair extensions will help them last longer. Your hair and hair extensions will always look sleek and healthy if you use our best suggestions and the proper products.
Adding a few more steps to your winter haircare routine will help ensure you get through the winter with extensions and hair that are healthy-looking and nearly flawless.
