What Products To Avoid on Hair Extensions
Quality hair extensions require regular care. Proper maintenance includes cleansing routinely, daily brushing, along with nightly attention. Using the correct products are vital in achieving optimal results from your hair extensions. Investing in luxurious locs allows you to have a more natural look when installing your hair extensions. With the correct products your investment into premium hair extensions can go a long way and can extend the life of your Cuticle Remy Virgin Hair.
Products You Should Avoid
Be sure to stay away from all hair products that contain sulfate and alcohol and any products that contains the following ingredients: SLS, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Alcohol denat, Ethanol, SD alcohol 40, Propanol, Isopropyl, and Propyl. These are what we refer to as bad alcohols because they deplete the hair of natural oils. We strongly advise you to read the product labels and not purchase hair care products that include these ingredients. These ingredients are harsh and dehydrating. They strip human hair of natural oils causing your cuticle Remy strands to become dry and brittle. Stay clear of “sticky” products such as hair gel, hair wax, and hair sprays. These hair clogging products can cause tangling and matting; build up of these heavy products on your locs will require more frequent washing than needed and can lead to dryness.
Products You Should Use
To care for your hair extensions we encourage you to use lightweight formulas in all facets of your product selection such as shampoos that are sulfate-free that moisturize and soften the hair without weighing it down. Another good choice for hair extensions is to use silicone based leave-in conditioners that are not oil based. Using oil based products can weigh the hair down as well as loosening bonds on certain types of hair extensions. If you do need added moisture, use moisturizing shampoos that reduce frizz.
