Are you jetting off somewhere sunny this year? While there is nothing better than some relaxation, good food and beach vibes, it is important to learn how to take care of your hair extensions properly when the sun is out. Often, people don’t realise that sunshine and hot temperatures can affect the appearance and health of hair extensions, as well as exposure to chlorine found in swimming pools and salt water in the ocean. This means that your hair extensions require a little extra TLC when you are on holiday to keep them looking beautiful.

Now, this doesn’t mean you should spend hours every night treating your hair extensions with lots of products. By following a few of our simple and quick tips, you can keep your hair extensions looking healthy and ensure they last you a long time.

Read on to find out what you can do to care for your hair extensions on holiday and which products you should save room for in your suitcase this year.

 

Extension Essentials

When you are going on holiday, you can’t forget your shampoo and conditioner. Just like your natural hair, your hair extensions need to stay healthy and hydrated on holiday in the sun; that is why bringing your own special shampoo and conditioner for your extensions will do them the world of good. Using a Luxury Hair Extension Shampoo and Luxury Hair Extension Conditioner with added argan oil and macadamia oil, will keep extensions healthy and conditioned, preventing dry and bristle ends. While it can be tempting to use the free products that you get in your hotel, using a paraben free shampoo and conditioner will ensure your hair extensions look beautiful after your holiday. After all, remy hair extensions are an investment and taking care of them on holiday will guarantee they last you for a long time.

 

Tangle-free Hair

Holidays are packed with fun activities, but this can also mean your hair becomes tangled and messy by the end of the day. Packing a Hair Extension Detangle Brush will allow you to keep your extensions soft, sleek and knot-free. Spending a little time to work out any tangles from your extensions will prevent breakage in the long run and ultimately, keep them healthier for longer. If you get your hair extensions wet, make sure to brush them before they dry to avoid tension on the bonds or pulling hair out when it is tangled. When you have active days planned, why not tie your hair up to avoid getting your hair messy?

 

Sun Protection

If you are jetting off into the sunshine, you will need to be careful with your hair extensions. Just like your skin, your extensions will have to be protected from the sun’s rays, as it can affect the appearance and colour of your remy hair extensions. If you are at the beach or out walking for a long period of time, it is recommended to wear a hat to protect your head and extensions or invest in Hair Extensions Heat & UV Protector – With Added Argan Oil. This does not contain any drying alcohols or anything that will damage your extensions; it will only provide a barrier from UV rays and keep your hair extensions looking healthy and hydrated.

 

Hair Hydration

Keeping your hair hydrated is just as important as drinking water in hot temperatures. That is why a Hair Extension Leave In Protein Spray will help keep your hair extensions hydrated since chlorine from swimming pools and salter water can reduce moisture levels. It is quick and easy to use and will instantly control any fly away hair and make it appear shiny. In the long run, it will also help to restore moisture levels in your extensions and enable them to last longer.

After a long day on holiday, it can be a good idea to give your hair extensions an intensive treatment to restore moisture and maintain their health.  Using the Luxury Hair Extension Mask is a great way to relaxing in the evenings and with its argan oil, macadamia oil and wheat collagen, your hair extensions can receive the ultimate moisture boost. This is just what they need after a long day in the sun.

Yet, the best way to keep your hair extensions healthy and hydrated is to avoid submerging the hair into seawater at the beach or chlorine water in your resort’s swimming pool. The salt in seawater can strip the moisture from your extensions, causing dry and brittle hair. With no way to repair itself, your hair extensions will suffer lasting damage. The same problem exists with chlorine. While its purpose is to keep the water clean, it can damage and dry out your extensions; definitely not what you want after investing in a beautiful style. In addition, some countries can use minerals in their water systems, which can adversely affect the colour of lighter hair extensions. It is always best to be cautious on holiday and tying up your hair into a quick style to avoid any contact with water will ensure your hair extensions stay healthy and nourished for longer.
