Do you have a set of human hair extensions that feel dry and tired? Are your hair extensions becoming knotty and difficult to manage? This is a very common problem for those who wear human hair extensions regularly, as they do not receive natural oils from the scalp and can deteriorate over time.
The better quality your hair extensions, and the more attention you pay towards looking after them, the longer they will last, however this will not protect them from the inevitable deterioration they will face over time.
Are My Hair Extensions Ruined?
Often, hair extensions which are simply in need of an intensive treatment are discarded as ruined, however with some time and effort even some of the most damaged hair extensions can become wearable once more.
Whether your hair extensions are dry, knotty, matted, brittle or anything in between, all is not lost with the use of a Pre Poo treatment.
Why Are My Hair Extensions Dry And Tangled?
There are a number of different factors that can cause this to happen:
- Poor quality hair
- Lack of natural oils
- Hard water exposure can damage hair extensions by causing them to become dry or discoloured
- Sun exposure damages hair extensions by causing them to become brittle
- Chlorine exposure can also cause hair extensions to become unmanageable
- Sea water exposure can damage hair extensions much in the same way as hard water and chlorine
All of these factors work in a way to impact hair in two ways which affect the hair quality. For hair extensions in general, exposure to the above causes already porous hair to absorb chemicals in the case of chlorine exposure, and minerals in the case of hard water and sea water, which act to dehydrate the hair, and strip it from its already minimal natural oils.
For light-blonde hair extensions, these factors can also work to strip away colour pigments causing discolouration, in the form of a orange/brassy tone. To learn more about hair extension discolouration click here.
How Do I Revive My Hair Extensions?
Hair extensions of all qualities, brands and origins will change throughout the time you’re are wearing them, however they can be revived with the correct care to restore their manageability and appearance.
If your hair extensions are looking tired, you can help bring them back to life with a few quick and easy steps.
In order to get your hair extensions back into tip top condition, you will need to give them a trim. Just like your own hair, hair extensions must be trimmed regularly to retain their quality. As the hair is human, the tips will become damaged first as they are the oldest, therefore we would recommend trimming away around an inch. Yes they will be slightly shorter, however they will be a whole lot healthier.
Now that you have removed the oldest hair, you can begin the treatment processes. Take one sachet of Hairapeutix Pre Poo treatment, and fully coat the hair from the mid lengths to the ends. This must be on DRY hair, as this will allow the hair to soak up the natural ingredients.
When reviving your hair extensions, it is best to keep this treatment on for as long as possible. The longer the treatment is exposed to the hair, the more the hair will be able to absorb.
If you have a permanent set of hair extensions, we would recommend sleeping with the treatment in overnight. If you’re reviving a set of clip in hair extensions, leave the treatment in as long as possible until you next need them.
Once you have left the treatment on for as long as possible, wash your hair with your usual shampoo and conditioner. The treatment is lightweight and will wash out very easily. If you still feel as though there is some treatment remaining, shampoo twice.
Your hair will now be softer, and easier to manage, however for those looking to revive their hair extensions we would recommend continuing their treatment for the entire month. Hairapeutix comes as a handy mini box of 2 sachets £5.99 for a one off recharge, or our ultra box of 8 sachets £18.99 for long term use to keep your hair extensions in tip top condition.
Your hair extensions will now be more wearable and manageable, as well as feeling softer and looking healthier.
