If you’re looking to add length, volume, or thickness to your hair, hair extensions may be the solution for you! Hair extensions can also be used to add highlights or lowlights to your hair without the need for chemical treatments. This is an excellent option for individuals who want to change their hair color without causing any damage to their natural locks. Another benefit of extensions is that they can be used to create different hairstyles. Whether you want to rock a ponytail, braid, or updo, extensions can help you achieve the look you desire. In order to reap the benefits of hair extensions, it is important to take care of them properly by following these steps.

  1. Get your extensions professionally installed. Having hair extensions installed by a local hair stylist is essential for achieving the best results and preventing damage to your natural hair. A professional NJ hair stylist will assess your hair type, texture, and color to determine the best type of extensions for your needs. They can also help you choose the right length and volume to achieve your desired look. While it may be tempting to try installing your own hair extensions, remember that improper installation can compromise the integrity of your natural hair.
  2. Brush your extensions regularly. Properly brushing your extensions can prevent tangles and knots. To brush your extensions, start at the ends of the hair and work your way up toward the roots. Use a soft-bristled brush or wide-tooth comb to gently detangle the hair, being careful not to pull or tug on the extensions. If you encounter a particularly stubborn knot, use your fingers to gently separate the hair before brushing through it.
  3. Wash your hair extensions gently. When washing your extensions, use a gentle Oribe shampoo and conditioner. Start by carefully detangling your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Wet your hair with lukewarm water and apply a small amount of shampoo, massaging it into your hair and scalp. After rinsing, apply a small amount of conditioner to your hair extensions, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Using salon-grade Oribe hair products that are formulated with premium ingredients will help strengthen and protect your hair.
  4. Blow dry your extensions after washing. Hair is in the most fragile state when it is wet. This means that wet hair is more prone to breakage or damage. By blow-drying the hair after washing, you keep your hair tangle-free and smooth. Air drying can sometimes cause hair to become tangled, which can be difficult to undo without causing damage. It is important to use a low or medium heat setting when blow-drying hair extensions, and always use a heat protectant.
