This is the only shampoo we recommend for washing hair extensions. Unlike other shampoos out there, Johnson’s is the only one that cleanses the hair without stripping it of its natural oils and drying the hair up. It’s sulfate-free, alcohol-free and fragrance-free so it will leave your hair extensions healthy, shiny and tangle-free.
Hair extensions can last for a lifetime. The key, however, is careful maintenance and use of the correct products. For this week, we will be featuring the recommended products for hair extensions care.
Most of these items can be found at your local drugstore such as Watsons, HBC, Hortaleza, Mercury Drug, even supermarkets. They are very affordable but essential in making your hair extensions last longer!
CLEANSING: Johnson’s Baby Shampoo
CONDITIONING: Creamsilk Stand out Straight
Cream Silk conditioners have been used by women with chemically treated hair since time immemorial. Though containing fragrance and alcohol, Creamsilk is very effective in maintaining the hair’s moisture and elasticity. It can help repair even the most damaged hair and it leaves a fragrant smell. After shampoo, using a conditioner and a treatment is a must.
DEEP CONDITIONING TREATMENT: Sunsilk Damage Repair (Pink Variant)
With so many damage repair treatments out there, nothing beats the power and price of Sunsilk damage repair. We have tried every deep conditioning treatment available in the market and this is our all-time favorite. If your hair extensions get dried up, leave this treatment on for about an hour and your extensions will feel brand new.
POST-CONDITIONING TREATMENT: Vitress Cuticle Shine
There are also a lot of cheap, buy-one-take-one hair glosses out there, but Vitress cuticle shine is the only hair gloss that does not make the hair oily. This is an important step in keeping your hair extensions tangle free and manageable, but only use this every after wash. Using it in excessive amounts will make the hair very greasy.
HAIR COLOR: Shine Moist Henna Wax
We can’t explain enough how wonderful Shine Moist Henna Wax is. It certainly is the holy grail of hair color and hair repair. This product is a semi-permanent hair color which conditions and makes the hair shiny while giving it a vibrant tint. It also comes in a wide variety of colors. But if you just want extra shine boost, they also have a natural/colorless shade.
HEAT PROTECTION: Vo5 Heat Shield Spray Conditioner
If you always use heat tools to style your hair extensions, then this product is necessary. Heat protectants are designed to lessen the damage caused by heat tools on the hair. They also help retain moisture in the hair making the hair less prone to breakage and dullness.
