Danielle’s Great Lengths extension tips.
This is for all my Great Lengths Extension clients. Some of you may be due to have your extensions out so I have put together some dos and don’t s to help you look after and maintain your hair while you can’t get to the salon. Firstly although we recommend you don’t leave your extensions in longer than six months this won’t damage your natural hair it will just become harder to style and may need a little more t.l.c.
-Do brush regularly, using a soft bristle brush or tangle teaser, take small sections of hair row by row and brush from the scalp over the extensions to the mid lengths, being careful to tease any tangles out from the bottom lengths first.
-Do use regular conditioning treatments on the mid lengths and ends.Do loosely plait/braid your hair to help not getting tangled at night this can give your hair a break from heated tools and also gives beautiful heat free waves in the morning.
-Do separate your bonds from the root daily with your fingers this prevents matting.
-Don’t use combs on the roots when brushing these can get caught and pull on the bonds. Don’t tie your extensions up too tight, this can cause tension on your roots.
-Don’t be alarmed if you shed the odd bond this a natural process and will happen more often the longer they are in.
-Don’t use heated tools (straightening irons and tongs etc) near the bonds this will melt the bonds and cause damage.
-Most importantly do not attempt to remove your hair extensions yourself this will cause more damage than good.
Please wait for us.
I hope this helps and I look forward to seeing you for your new set of gorgeous Great lengths Extensions as soon as we can.
