Summer seasons calls for crazy adventures, vacations, tanning by the pool and day trips to the beach. Having hair extensions does not mean you have to stop having fun, but there are steps to take to make sure you are properly caring for your extensions this summer. Just like you would protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen, here are ways you should be caring for your extensions:
Use Leave in Conditioner
Before entering a chlorine filled pool or salty beach waters, spray a good amount of leave-in conditioner in your hair and brush through. Your hair should feel slightly damp once you are done. This will protect your hair from absorbing any of the chemicals or salts in the water that can change the color of the hair or dehydrate it. Even being in the hot sun all day can dehydrate your hair!
When it comes to being in a pool a day with chemicals and other people’s bodily fluids, you want to rinse that water off baby girl. Even in the salty waters of the ocean - you do not want those salts to sit on your hair or skin because it will dry them out. Once you’re done with whatever water activity, hop in the shower real quick and allow the soft water to cleanse your hair and body!
Avoid Certain Sunscreens
Sunscreens that contain avobenzone will turn your extensions to a peachy pink shade almost immediately. Be sure to use a mineral based sunscreen this summer to avoid damaging those beautiful locks!
For my ladies who do not tan in the sun naturally and need that extra help with self tanners - this one's for you. Always tie your hair up and even use a cap if possible when applying self tanner. And always make sure you tan on 100%, completely dry before letting your hair down. Your extensions can absorb the orange tones in the tanner and it makes it really hard to get out.
