How To Make Beauty Works Hair Extensions Last Longer

Tip #1: Invest In The Brand

If you want your hair extensions to stand the test of time, then our first piece of advice is to invest in the brand! If you buy poor quality extensions, then not only will you find that they will fail to blend with your natural hair, quickly become dry and easily tangle, but they also may contain synthetic strands and therefore are not safe to use with heated hair tools like straighteners and curlers. To avoid this, choose a high quality brand that only use 100% remy human hair like Beauty Works. Remy hair goes through a specific process which ensures that the natural hair cuticle remains in tact from root to tip, this allows for the hair to stay ultra smooth, with shine and vitality for up to 8-9 months. You can also straighten, curl and wave the whole range of Beauty Works extensions… Result!

Tip #2: The Right Shampoo And Conditioner

Unlike your natural hair, extensions do not receive the essential oils that your scalp produces and therefore it is vital to use shampoos and conditioners that are specifically formulated to provide the hair with the nourishment that it requires to stay soft and supple. Beauty Works’ Pearl Nourishing Argan Shampoo is enriched with both milk protein and argan oil, these two potent ingredients will revitalise your hair extensions and leave them looking shiny. To ensure that you improve the strength of your extensions and therefore ensure that they last a substantial amount of time, use the shampoo and then follow with the Beauty Works Pearl Nourishing Argan Oil Conditioner, focusing on the ends of your extensions and then working up to the top.

Tip #3: The Correct Styling Products

Aftercare is an essential step of making your hair extensions last longer, therefore it is essential to invest in brushes and styling products that have been designed to cater to extensions and their specific needs. The Beauty Works Ten-in-One Miracle Spray is an example. This multi-tasking hair treatment benefits the hair in ten different ways, including eliminating frizz, restoring shine, protecting from heat, detangling knots and enhancing the natural body…. A must-have for those with extensions!

Tip #4: Lifestyle Choices

Our final tip for helping to increase the lifespan of your hair extensions is to consider your lifestyle choices and how they can effect your hair extensions. For example, when wearing your Beauty Works, you should try and avoid salt water and chlorine due to the fact that they can dry the hair and even cause them to discolour. Just like your natural locks, hair extensions can become extremely damaged from excess heat – this means extreme use of straighteners, hair dryers, curlers and wands. To increase the health and strength of your extensions, only use heat when completely necessary and always make sure that you use a heat protecting spray.

I’ve obsessed over all things beauty for as long as I can remember! Since my early teens, I’ve constantly experimented with my makeup, hair and nails. Nowadays, I usually settle for a statement eye and a soft, nude lip. I also love social media, so if you see a tweet or a post by HQhair, then I’ll most probably be the face behind it! If I’m not playing around with the latest beauty product or checking out what’s happening over on Twitter, then I’ll be on a city break with my friends, sipping on a Blue Lagoon.
