Hair Extension Care During Summer: Protecting Your Investment from Sun and Chlorine Damage

The sun is shining and you now have beautiful luscious mermaid hair thanks to a fresh set of hair extensions! So let’s chat about how to protect your hair extension investment this summer. Let’s dive into some essential care tips to ensure your hair extensions remain healthy during Vancouver's sunny summers.

Pre-Swim Preparation:

Before jumping into that pool, ocean or lake it’s best to prep your extensions with a conditioning treatment! This will create a barrier to protect your hair from chlorine & salts and will help keep your hair moisturized and easy to detangle.

Rinse After:

After enjoying a refreshing swim, don't forget to rinse your hair extensions! Use lukewarm water to wash away any traces of chlorine or saltwater, gently massaging your scalp and lengths to ensure thorough cleansing. Follow up with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner specifically formulated for hair extensions to replenish moisture and nutrients.

Sun Protection:

Opt for products throughout the summer that provide UV protection, just as you shield your skin from harmful UV, your hair extensions also require protection. Without this protection your extensions will become dry & brittle and the color may shift. Most heat protectants also contain UV protection.

Protective Hairstyles:

Choose hairstyles that will help protect your hair from the sun and potential tangling such as braids & low buns.

Add a Clarifying Shampoo Into Your Routine:

By adding a clarifying shampoo into your routine you are cleansing any unwanted chemicals or environmental pollution out of your hair! This is especially great to add in during smokey Vancouver summers.

By following these simple yet effective tips, you can safeguard your investment and ensure that your hair remains radiant, healthy, and ready to dazzle all season long.
