Getting the Perfect Look Every Time

If you want long hair but it’s going to be quite some time until your mane grows to the right length, consider getting hair extensions in the mean time. Hair extensions are also a great way to try on a new look to see how you’ll like your hair at a different length. There are several types of hair extensions to choose from. Follow the proper care and maintenance guidelines to ensure your extensions will last as long as possible. Luckily, taking care of hair extensions is a fairly easy process. If you’ve never had hair extensions before, consult a professional stylist.

Shampoo and Conditioning Your Hair Extensions
• The cleaner your hair, the longer your SHE by SO.CAP.USA Hair Extensions will last. Hair that isn’t clean will tangle easily.
• Shampoo after swimming or working out.
• Wash your hair from the roots to the tips.
• After shampooing and conditioning, apply a leave-in conditioner. Just make sure not to apply too much.     Product buildup will lead to tangling.
• Make sure your hair is thoroughly dry before going to bed. Wet hair will tangle and break if you sleep on it. Wrap your hair with a scarf or tie it tightly before heading to bed to prevent tangling.

Brushing and Hair Products
Brush your hair three times a day and before shampooing.
• Use a brush with soft bristles.
• Start at the ends of your hair and work toward your scalp, brushing downward.
• Avoid using products that contain alcohol on your SHE by SO.CAP.USA Hair Extensions. Alcohol-based products will dry out your hair.

Heat Styling
• Avoid applying excessive heat styling to synthetic extensions.
• Limit heat exposure to lengthen the life of your hair extensions.
• Blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons should only be used when necessary. Whenever possible, let your hair dry naturally.

Types of Hair Extensions
Classic bonded hair extensions are safe for all hair textures and can blend into any hair pattern. The process for applying these bonded hair extensions is long and among the most pricey option.
Clip in hair extensions have the clip portion pre-sewn into the extension. Clip in hair extensions are by far the easiest type of extensions to apply and remove yourself.
• Adhesive hair extensions, or tape on bonds, are among the newest kind of extension. With adhesive hair extensions, there’s a thin, flat strip of double-sided polyurethane “tape” that adheres the extension to your hair.

Hair Extension Salons and Stylists
• If you’ve never had extensions before, ask a professional stylist to apply your extensions the first time around. Once you have the hang of caring for extensions, you’ll be ready to apply your own in a few months.
• Not every salon has stylists who are experienced with extensions. Find a salon that’s been open for a while and ask for a seasoned stylist who’s applied many sets of extensions before.
• Only a stylist should treat your hair with color or other chemical processes once you have extensions. Don’t try to color your hair on your own.
