With summer in full swing, it’s time to enjoy the warm weather, whether that’s in Cardiff or somewhere more tropical! However, the sun, pool water, SPF and humidity can take a toll on your extensions if not properly cared for.
Let’s dive into the key steps to ensure your hair extensions stay in check during summer!
#1 – Poolside pre-cautions 👙
Whether you’re lounging at the pool or the beach, it’s crucial to take extra precautions with your hair extensions. Prior to swimming, be sure to dampen your extensions with fresh water and apply a leave in-conditioner, this will create a barrier, and will minimise chlorine damage. Follow up with a post-swim rinse and deep condition to restore moisture in your hair extensions and, prevent dryness!
#2 – Hydration is key 💦
Maintaining proper hydration is vital to the health ofyour hair extensions in the summer climate! There is no better time to perfect your hair routine, using hydrating conditioners, serums and dee conditioning treatments will allow your stennies to flourish!
