The summer heat is upon us and that means dry and frizzy hair, thanks to humidity. But when you have hair extensions, the only thought that crosses your mind is: “How can I protect them?”
You’re not alone. Humidity doesn’t just damage your natural hair; it can damage your weaves and extensions as well!
But that doesn’t mean you can’t protect your extensions during the summers. Here are a couple of things you can do to protect your extensions and your natural curls:
Moisturize Your Hair
Because it’s summer, you need to protect your natural hair and your extensions from sweat. Your sweat has salt in it. Salt can damage the roots of your hair, and when your natural hair is in trouble, your extensions will follow suit.
So, make sure to use leave-in conditioner and organic oils to moisturize your scalp and roots. By providing your hair with the essentials and nutrients it needs, leave-in conditioner and organic oils can nourish your scalp from within.
In addition, make sure you do this after a shower. When you shower, your hair is stripped of the natural oils your scalp produces. These oils are essential for ensuring your scalp doesn’t dry.
Apply organic oils and leave-in conditioner at least twice a week.
No More Heat Styling
You already know this and yes, it is common sense. But so many hairstyles have popped up on YouTube and Instagram, with beauty gurus using heating tools.
Heat hairstyling, especially during the summers, can be problematic. Because you’re exposing your hair to direct heat, your scalp and roots will become dry. It’s already humid and adding more heat can lead to limp, frizzy, and dull hair!
