What Can You Expect From Custom Colored Hair Extensions?

Posted on: 28 June 2022

If you want to add extra color to your hair, you may consider extensions. Extensions come in various colors, but if you want a truly unique look, you may want to consider custom-colored hair extensions. Here's what to expect from this process. 

You Need Cool Water to Wash Your Hair Extensions

Custom-colored hair extensions are a beautiful way to add color and style to your look. But they require some special care to keep them looking their best.

To maintain the color of your custom hair extensions, you'll need to use cool water when washing them. Hot water can strip the color from your hair, leaving it dull and lifeless. That's because hot water opens up the hair cuticle, which can cause color molecules to escape.

Hot water can also damage the hair, making it more susceptible to tangling and breakage. Hair is made up of protein bonds. When these bonds are exposed to hot water, they can break, leaving your hair weaker and more prone to damage.

By contrast, cool water helps seal moisture and lock in color, keeping your hair looking its best. When shampooing, use cool water and gentle, color-safe formula that will not strip the color from your hair. You can also condition your extensions after shampooing to help keep them hydrated and looking their best.

Following these simple tips can help keep your custom-colored hair extensions looking vibrant and beautiful.

You Should Avoid Heat When Drying Your Hair Extensions

You've finally taken the plunge and invested in some beautiful, custom-colored hair extensions. Custom-colored hair extensions are a great way to add length, volume, and color to your natural hair. However, you need to take care when drying and styling your extensions, as heat can damage the hair fibers and cause the color to fade.

So how do you dry your extensions without using heat? The best way is to air dry them by hanging them up or lying them down on a towel. If you have to use a blow dryer, use the lowest setting possible and hold the dryer several inches away from the hair. You could also use a diffuser attachment to help minimize the amount of direct heat.

When heat styling, use a heat protectant spray and style on a low setting. And always use a cool setting when you're finished to help seal the style and protect your hair from heat damage.

A New Summer Style

A couple of months ago, my beautiful, intelligent, and talented sister married her best friend in a simple, church ceremony. On this special day, a hair stylist curled my hair and pinned it on top of my head. Because I normally keep my hair short, I had to grow it out for a few months before the wedding in order to achieve the look I wanted. Now that the wedding is over, my long hair is starting to aggravate me. Due to the summer heat and humidity, it is beginning to break off and look frizzy! I am in desperate need of a new summer style. On this blog, you will discover the best types of haircuts for the steamy, summer months. Enjoy your new look!
