Hair Extension Do’s & Don’ts


When it comes to hair extensions, it can get confusing. If you’re new to wearing them or are not sure if you’re wearing, styling or caring for them right, you’ve come to the right place.

Hair extensions look great, but they can quickly go down hill if not cared for properly. Whether you’re thinking of investing in your first set or want to make sure you’re doing everything right, take a look at our do’s and don’ts for hair extensions.

Do Choose Wisely

Think about what it is you need from your hair extensions. Do you just want a little added length for special occasions or do you want a longer length every day without doing a thing? Once you decide, you’ll then know whether you want extensions that clip in and out or that are permanently bonded to your hair.

Do Colour Match

When you know what style of hair extensions you want, you need to make sure that you go for the right colour. It’s important that you get a perfect colour match, especially when you’re buying online. Hairtrade provide you with a colour matching service either by photograph or a small hair sample to make sure you find the perfect match.

Don’t Scrimp

It’s so important to get the right hair extensions for you. And that means not scrimping on quality. You might be tempted to choose a cheaper alternative, but you’ll pay for it in the long run. Not only may you struggle with a colour match, but the quality might clearly be bad. There’s nothing worse that noticeable hair extensions – so it’s important not to scrimp! Hairtrade have a huge range of quality, natural looking human hair extensions that are not only easy to wear, but affordable too.

Do Look After Them

Now that you’ve chosen your hair extensions and you’re ready to wear them, make sure you know how to look after them too. You don’t want to damage them too quickly. Just like your own hair, it’s important to keep them clean and tangle free. Whether you’ve chosen clips-ins or bonds, make sure you brush them regularly to keep them smooth and wash them to remove product build up.

Don’t Be Excessive

And finally, go easy on them. Just like you try to keep your own hair away from too much heat, you need to do the same for your hair extensions. Try to give them a break from heat to keep them smoother for longer. Also, it’s best not to sleep with clip-in hair extensions in – you might find yourself matting them in the night. For bonds, tie your hair back loosely when you sleep to keep them tangle free.
