Winterize Your Hair Extensions

We all know that winter brings cold, dry weather and we feel the effects on our skin immediately, but you may not have realized the damage it can do to your hair extensions too! Caring for your locks in the colder months means adopting a slightly different daily hair care routine.

Here are a few tips to protect your hair extensions against winter weather:

Amp up your moisturizing game: It is critical to keep your hair saturated with moisture. Dry heat indoors, cold air outside, and heat from styling tools can work a number on lush locks, so be careful to adjust your daily hair moisturizing regimen as the temperatures drop.
Speaking of heat from styling tools, think about cutting down on how often you touch your tendrils with the curling or flat iron. This habit can amplify the dryness of your extensions and cause more breakage. Using hot tools twice a week is a good rule of thumb.
Use a little TLC: show your hair you care by avoiding going out in the cold with wet hair! That will freeze your hair and increase the chances of damage. And consider swapping those cotton pillow cases and hair coverings to satin or silk. These fabrics do not absorb the moisture from the hair and help reduce dryness.
No matter how you choose to care for your extensions this winter, just remember to add moisture wherever you can! Implementing a regular deep conditioning treatment into your regime is the simplest solution for maximizing a moist mane. Make sure you can skip into Spring with luscious locks with a proactive winter of proper haircare.
