New Year, Same Beautiful You: Smart Guide to Hair Extensions
Every year it’s the same: New Year, new you. We plan all these big changes and somehow we forget about them down the road. Why torture ourselves? The idea of a new you, every year, is not only out of trend, but it’s also actually plain exhausting!
At SOCAP we care about your well-being, and that’s why we reinforce the idea that we should be happy with who we are and the way we look. Still, if you want to change things a bit to improve the already beautiful you, hair extensions would do the trick –and it’s totally effortless.
So, if you’re ready to try hair extensions for the first time, here are a couple of things you should know:
High maintenance vs. Low maintenance
SOCAP hair extensions are top quality, and they would endure pretty much anything. You can style them, as your new hair extensions are heat resistant. Other synthetic hair extensions won’t stand such high temperatures. Still, we would recommend you to use your heating tools with moderate heat and make sure to apply a heat resistant product before styling them in order to extend your extensions lifespan.
How to treat your hair extensions
Your hair extensions might be strong but that doesn’t mean you would treat them poorly. Avoid pulling your hair extensions when brushing as hair extensions work differently than your natural hair. They won’t grow back and you don’t want them to lose volume over the months. Being delicate and careful when styling your hair reduces this effect to a minimum. You can start brushing the tips and going up, rising gradually towards the root. You can find special brushes for hair extensions in our store.
Make sure to wash your hair extensions only when necessary and using a special shampoo for hair extensions. Keep in mind that your own hair receives nutrients from the root, unlike hair extensions. Also, the scalp produces sebum or and natural fat that makes your hair look greasy. However, with hair extensions, there are no nutrients, natural oils or flakes as it tends to happen with your natural hair. With hair extensions, it’s more important to keep them hydrated than actually worrying about washing them.
Hair extensions are a great addition and a practical accessory for a change that doesn’t take much effort. If you want to know more about hair extensions and how to bring the best out of your hair, check our other blog posts or visit our online store for the best hair products.
