When the subject of discussion goes to getting extensions, women interested in getting them often search for all the important things they need to know before choosing extensions. If you are among them, you probably have done your research on what kind of extensions to get and even the stylist you’ll go to. But have you ever given a thought to what you have to do once you’re already wearing extensions?

To make sure you’ll get to enjoy your extensions for a long time, don’t forget to ask your stylists these questions before you step out of the salon!

How do I wash my hair and my fusions?

You simply tilt your head back and work your way from your scalp to the ends of your hair. Be careful when you are massaging your scalp and do not rub the shampoo into the bonds.  Also avoid rubbing too much as doing so can create tangles. Rinse thoroughly to avoid residue build-up. Remember to just condition the lower half of your hair and be careful not to get any into the bonds, too. Pat your hair dry instead of rubbing. Be careful not to pull or tug!

Can I use just any shampoo and conditioner?

It is highly advisable that you go for hair products that do not contain sulphates, ammonia, or alcohol. Your hair and your extensions will be happier with gentler formulations and with essential oils like Moroccan oil. Don’t forget to condition your hair to keep it manageable and soft! It’s also a good idea to apply a really good hair treatment once or twice a week.

How can I avoid damaging it when I’m sleeping?

First of all, you have to remember not to go to bed with wet hair because that promotes tangling. Wait for it to dry, then braid your hair loosely or put it in a soft and low ponytail using a scrunchie before you sleep.

Can I use curlers or flat irons to style my fusions?

While premium quality fusions like the ones from La Crowne can be styled any way you want using any hot tools, you still have to be careful not to let any direct heat come into contact with the bonds.  It’s safer to curl your hair or iron below the bonds.

Is it okay to colour my hair and my fusions on my own?

To make sure that you get great results, it’s better to seek professional service. It’s challenging to evenly colour your own hair as it is, it’s a little more difficult with extensions on. You want to make sure that you’ll love the colour and not damage your fusions, so make an appointment with your stylist for any chemical treatments like colouring your hair.

Your stylist is the best partner you can find in making sure your extensions look their best for a long time. He or she also has all the information you need to ensure you’re doing everything right when you step out of the salon. Don’t be shy and ask as many questions as you need to! You can always contact La Crowne to know more about our fusion extensions, too!
