When it comes to caring for your hair you may find yourself confused. While wearing certain extensions, your stylist may have the job of taking off your natural hair, leaving you with nothing but a bunch of hair that look terrible. Luckily, many people are now learning how to care for their hair while still being able to enjoy the look of their chosen extensions. If you are still unsure how to take care of your mane after this change, take some time and read through this guide. There are a lot of helpful tips that should help you learn how to care for your new look.
First of all, if you are not going to wear any hair extensions, you need to be prepared to let your mane grow to its natural length. Most experts recommend letting your mane grow to around one inch in length before you start to cut it off. If you are going to be wearing extensions for an extended period of time, make sure that your stylist makes this recommendation. This will allow your mane to grow properly and give you the right balance when you go to cut it. To begin caring for your mane after you have grown it to a maximum, use some professional-approved techniques for caring for your mane. After all, you do not want to end up looking more like a clown than you did before you started wearing the extensions.
Once you are comfortable with how to care for your mane the right way, it is time to start styling it. Styling your mane should be done only when you are going to be wearing the extensions the entire day. If you have the extensions on all day, it can lead to dry scalp which can lead to infections and other side effects. You should only wear your extensions when you feel that you need them and then put your natural hair up over top.
