Hair extensions offer you the opportunity to have long, thick locks overnight, but if you don’t apply or maintain them correctly, you could end up looking ridiculous or damaging your natural hair.
As hair professionals in Gordon, we have seen many hair extension disasters on the North Shore. If you have hair extensions or are interested in getting hair extensions, make sure that you don’t make these mistakes!
Being Too Rough With Them
Hair extensions require gentle brushing and handling. If you are too rough with them, you could end up pulling out extension strands, as well as strands of your natural hair. Be especially gentle when washing and drying them.
Not Matching The Colour Correctly
While some of you may want to get a contrast with your extensions, most extension wearers will wish to have the colour of their extensions blend in naturally with their natural colour. This can be hard to do when ordering online, and it is best to get the help of a professional if you want an exact colour match.
Not Clipping The Extensions High Enough
If you are applying your extensions yourself, many first-timers tend to add all the extensions along the bottom of their hair to get the full length, but this can often result in the extensions looking unnatural and not blended.
Choosing The Wrong Hairdresser
It’s recommended that a professional and experienced hair technician apply your extensions for you so that they look blended and natural. Choosing an inexperienced hairdresser could result in disaster.
Choosing The Wrong Extensions
These are the factors that you need to think about when choosing the right extensions for your hair:
- Type (clip-in, iron in etc.)
Choosing the right type based on your hair type and lifestyle is incredibly important if you want your extensions to give you the results that you are after.
