Re: Hair extensions
Flutter, I am just curious, how did it all work out? I got extensions a couple weeks ago. I got Hotheads, a thin "taped weft" type of extension that stays in for a few weeks and can be reused up to three times. They are also Remy hair. I will tell you the first couple times I washed them I was incredibly disappointed because they were so soft and shiny until I washed them.But since then I have invested in two things that have made a HUGE difference and now I love them again. First, I used Chi Silk Infusion and I use it wet after I wash them (don't get it near the bonds). This stuff is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I have asked around and apparently it is normal for extensions to look frizzy without the right products because, while Remy hair is real hair, it is extremely delicate because it is not connected to your scalp and getting any natural oils or nutrients. The second thing that has made a difference is a natural boar bristle brush. Try these things and use good SULFATE FREE shampoo ( like Pureology) or at least extremely moisturizing shampoo and deep conditioner like Tigi Resurrection. I am not usually a huge fan of their shampoo and conditioners but this stuff makes your hair feel like silk and smells like candy to boot lol. The brush, shampoo and Chi Silk Infusion are kind of pricy but you have to spend a little extra money to take care of them. Think of your extensions as a nice shirt: The more you wash the more you will wear it out so it is better to use Woolite as opposed to Tide. I hope this helps!
