How to look after your Virgin Hair Extensions

How to look after your Virgin Hair Extensions

We’ve all seen & heard the horror stories of hair extensions – Tangled locks, obvious bonds, tapes poking through, bald spots, shedding… and to be honest MOST do not even look like real hair (Generally because it’s not!).

But relax, take a breath and have faith that there is actually hair out there that will not do all these things. In fact, there is absolutely no reason why you should have ANY trouble with them at all! The main reasons these things happen, is the majority of extension wearer’s are buying factory-produced hair.

Looking after your LDL International Virgin Hair Extensions is easy - it's just like looking after your own hair, as it is real hair! However, like your own hair, there's a few things to follow.

  1. Get the right brush. A stylist-approved brush is essential so that you don’t tug at the extensions too harshly. Try a big soft-toothed paddle brush - our EVY Paddle Brushes are amazing. Once you have the right brush – use it!! Brush your hair out gently each morning to avoid knots that can form overnight.
  2. Which brings us to the next must have item – Satin/Silk pillowcases, not only will these help with keeping your style in place, they will also stop tangling and even better, keep the moisture in your skin and hair extensions. Loosely tie back your hair each night before bed so that it doesn’t get tangled as you toss and turn in your sleep.
  3. If you love your gym & exercise, no problem! Just pop it back in a loose braid to avoid getting all sweaty. Gently wash and dry your hair by patting rather than vigorously rubbing the cuticles together.
  4. Use a product that will protect your hair from the direct heat. Our Balmain Thermal Protection Spray is brilliant for looking after your hair from heat styling tools.
  5. Always stick to your 6 weekly bookings – Ensuring your gorgeous new hair is getting the maintenance it needs is tantamount. We lose up to 100 hairs per day naturally, and whilst wearing your extensions, that hair predominantly will get caught in your beads. If you leave it too long it will start to cause matting at the root and your stylist will most likely break hairs as she battles to comb it out.
  6. Use a beautiful gentle shampoo & gorgeous conditioner recommended by your specialist. We stock two beautiful ranges at LDL - Christophe Robin and Balmain
  7. A leave-in conditioner is also gorgeous for your hair to have a little extra moisture injected. Hair that is cut from a donor is prone to dehydration, as there is no direct nutrition source to the hair. The Balmain Leave in Conditioning Spray is stunning!
  8. Most importantly, follow the instructions of your LDL Specialist and your aftercare instructions!
