Hair Extensions Aftercare

Beauty Works Blow Dry Kit

You have spent your hard earned cash on new flowing lock, now you have to maintain them if you want to get the most out of your hair extensions. Hair Extensions are in effect dead hair as it is not attached to your scalp so consequently your natural oils that help to maintain your own hair will not help with your hair extensions. Aftercare is the most important part of the maintenance and you must use the correct products.


Shampoo- Sulfate v Sulfate Fee

Recommended Product Beauty Works Sulfate Free Aftercare Set Sulfates are basically a filler product that is used to bulk out the shampoo, sulfates also produces  the lather you will be used to, however, sulfates are actually not the kindest ingredients about and can actually lead to dry damaged hair extensions. Sulfates also break down keratin which is used in pre-bonded, micro rings and nano hair extensions so avoid at all costs.

Heat Protector

We can not stress enough how important a heat protector is to your new shiny locks. You have to think of hair as you would a fabric like silk, would you put your iron on full to iron a silk dress? Hair Extensions need protection or you will soon start to see the tell tail signs of damage like snapped ends, matting and an unhealthy dull look.


Deep Conditioner

Keep putting that moisture back with a good quality deep conditioning treatment. We recommend Beauty Works Argan Oil Mask
