Why You Should Wear Your Hair Extensions With Pride

There was a time when hair extensions were solely for the rich and famous. Nowadays they are accessible to everyone. However, a recent survey found that an incredible 90% of women who wear hair extensions would not admit to owning them!

Ladies, there is no shame in wearing hair extensions, none at all. Just like high heels can extenuate your height and make up can enhance your beauty, hair extensions have the power to make you feel more positive about yourself and ooze confidence. If you are going to feel ashamed about anything it’s your collection on Ronan Keating and Peter Andre CDs and Kappa tracksuits.

Hair extensions are extremely beneficial and women should embrace them. If you wear extensions made from virgin hair, shout it from the rooftops. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Major celebrities are constantly filling their social media profiles with pictures of their new weaves and the reaction to them is incredible. You see, it’s not like the olden days when most weaves were made from synthetic material and were instantly noticeable. Today’s hair extensions are so natural that nobody can tell the difference between them and natural hair.

Hair extensions can give you so many benefits.

If your stylist has taken off more than you dared to imagine, hair extensions can give you the extra length you desire in order to have you brimming with confidence again. Extensions can also give your limp and thinning hair some much needed volume. At Beyond Hair we have a range of hair types to choose from, including Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair, Malaysian hair and an Afro range. Here you can opt to plump for curly, straight or wavy virgin hair. Whatever look you want to achieve, our highly skilled team will help you realise your dreams.

Hair extensions can also unleash your creative side because they are so versatile. If you are a social butterfly you can style your hair extensions for work and easily adapt them for a date or drinks with the girls in the evening. Virgin hair is so natural you can treat it as if it was your own. There are no limitations.

Of course the benefits of hair extensions are not just aesthetically, they can also help you mentally by giving your confidence a huge boost. You can wave goodbye to the bad hair day blues as you will have the Hollywood look every single day. This boost in confidence will give you added determination at work, turn heads as you stroll down the street and increase your sex appeal.

So those ladies who said they were ashamed to admit they wear hair extensions need to stand up and wear their weaves with pride.

How to keep your hair extensions looking exceptional

You step out of our Beyond Hair London salon looking like a million dollars with your fabulous new Brazilian weave in place. You feel like a Hollywood A-lister as people on the street stand open-mouthed, adoring your glowing locks. Not only do you look amazing, you feel amazing too. But how do you ensure you get that reaction each and every day?

Here’s a short guide on how to keep those tresses in tip top condition for as long as possible.

Use shampoo

Try and shampoo your hair between two and three times a week. Be careful though, you don’t want to rub or scrub your hair as you wash. Your weave is precious so be gentle with it. Leave-in conditioners are exceptional at keeping your extensions from drying out or getting tangled. Regular conditioners can be used daily but only apply them from the mid-shaft to the ends.

But don’t use bad shampoo

Steer clear of anything that contains sulfates. Sodium lauryl sulfate is a common ingredient found in cheap products that produces a sudsing effect. Unfortunately it is super drying to the hair, which can lead to dullness, split ends or (whisper it) a compromised bond. Heavy conditioners and oils are also products that should be given the brush off.

Keep brushing

We encourage you to brush your hair daily, but please ensure you use the right type of brush. A special hair extension loop brush is perfect for those wanting to protect their natural locks and the lifespan of their extensions. Whatever you do, always brush in a downward motion. Slowly start at the ends of your hair and aim to get rid of all the tangles. Once they are removed then start working your way up.

Never brush your hair when wet

There are some things in life you should never do. You should never ignore your parents. You should never ask a lady her age and you should never brush your hair extensions when wet. The strain on the actual bond can cause the weave to weaken prematurely. Also, regular nylon and bristle brushes can pull on your tangles, which can cut into the life shorten the life of your weave.

Choose a quality pillowcase

Not only will swapping your pillowcase from cotton to silk or satin enable a better night’s sleep, it will also be beneficial for your extensions. Due to their texture, silk or satin pillowcases will not catch on your hair at night as much as cotton. Failing that you can also tie your hair up in a bun before bed to stop the extensions from getting tangled.

Don’t go to bed with wet hair never go to bed with wet hair. This definitely applies to those rocking extensions. But that doesn’t mean you should blast your hair with the highest heat on a blow dryer. As bad as having too much heat on your hair is, your extensions can’t absorb the benefits of your oils from your scalp, so they’ll just dry out and be prone to frizzing. Also a ponytail may seem like the most practical thing to do with your extensions before bed, but please refrain from doing so. Ponytails can add collective mass on your bonds, causing them to weaken.

So if you want to remain looking and feeling like a superstar just follow these tips and give your hair the love and attention it deserves.
