How Hair Extensions Can Heal Your Hair
Many people associate hair extensions solely with adding length and volume to their hair. However, hair extensions can also play a significant role in healing and restoring the health of your natural hair. In this blog post, we will explore how hair extensions can benefit your hair's healing process and promote its overall well-being.
Use less heat on your hair:
Hair extensions can stay styled so much better than our natural hair. Most of my clients can curl their hair on wash day and then it will stay curled for a few days after that with minimal touchups needed. This will give your natural hair a break from the heat so it has a chance to heal!
Add brightness without bleaching:
Adding a lighter extension into the mix is an awesome way to get that dimension and brightness on the ends with no bleaching or coloring needed. This is great for those clients that like to change up their hair for the seasons. Anytime you can minimalize the bleach you put on your natural hair, the happier your hair will be!
Use less products when styling:
Since the hair extensions hold style so well, you really don't need to add too many styling products. Maybe just a leave in conditioner or oil with a little dry texture spray! Too many products on your hair can leave a build-up on the strands that can leave your hair feeling dry and brittle.
One of the common issues faced by individuals with damaged hair is breakage. Hair extensions, when installed correctly and maintained properly, can help reduce breakage by providing additional support to fragile strands. The extensions act as a buffer, preventing your natural hair from experiencing excessive tension, manipulation, or friction that can lead to breakage.
Hair extensions offer more than just a temporary style change. When used mindfully and with proper care, they can become a transformative tool to help heal and revitalize your natural hair. Whether it's protecting your strands, preventing breakage, or aiding in transitioning, extensions provide a platform for your natural hair to flourish. So, consider incorporating hair extensions into your hair care routine, and let them become a catalyst for healing, growth, and renewed confidence.
