Things to know about girls with extensions part 2

10. We'll never be low maintenance. A wash and go is a thing of mere fantasies for us. When our natural hair is curly and our extensions are straight, leaving the house speedily is no longer a viable option.

 

11. Washing our hair is a huge commitment. Don't be offended if we cancel on you because we have to wash our hair. It's not an excuse, washing is a mammoth task that we must prepare for mentally, physically and emotionally.So be prepared for the greasy look sometimes. We use dry shampoo by the bucket load.

 

12. We will always be staring at other girl's bonnets. Whether we are watching the TV or out at a fancy restaurant expect us to sporadically scream out phrases like 'that colour match is awful' and 'there's no way all that can be real'

14. Rain is our enemy. We're constantly fearful that the water droplets are going to reveal our true identity as a hair fraud.

 

15. We have drawers filled with hair. No, we're not some sort of real life horror film villain. It's just hair that has already fulfilled its duties that we're not quite ready to part from, and the emergency hair stash - you just never know when you're going to need s

 

16. We might suddenly start itching our scalp. You think carrying around all this extra weight is easy? Sometimes we'll resemble a nits victim.

 

17. We may occasionally have some strands fall out. We'll quickly sneak it into our bag and if you witness this unfortunate incident, don't even mention it. If it happens while we're getting intimate it's even more pivotal you ignore what just happened. Or know how to laugh with us, not at us ��

 

18. Under no circumstances can you suggest that our hair is a waste of time or money. Our weave is our baby, and NOBODY talks bad about our baby.

1. When it's time for new hair we'll be hibernating. Hair extensions are rarely cheap so we'll be living on a diet of pasta and cheese in order to afford our next batch.

 

2. Expect an increased amount of whipping when we first leave the salon. There will also be a lot of fluffing and flicking. Schedule a date night for now so we can increase our audience.

 

3. Don't ask us the length of our real hair. Ermm mind your own business.

 

4. And don't ask to see the bonds either. Even worse! We will disclose details when we're ready.

 

5. Be prepared for an ugly removal process. If we wear clip ins then taking them out is never going to be sexy. Please just respect our privacy at this time and look away while we shove them into our bedside table draw and quickly apply a messy bun.

 

6. We're not plaiting our hair because we're a Frozen fanatic. We have to braid in order to limit damage during the night… durh.

 

7. Don't be alarmed when you run your hands through our hair. There is a lot going on at the roots so it may feel less like you're touching our head and more like a tool box. Maybe stick to the middle and end sections.

 

8. We get emotional when we don't have them. Our stylist is likely to advise us to take a break every now and again and this will cause a great amount of distress. Leave us to bravely make our way through the grieving process. Ask our mum for advice on how to deal with our heightened emotions. She's seen it ALL before.

 

9. When we're getting intimate don't pull too hard. Yes, we all get caught up in the moment but there's nothing like a clump of hair falling out into your hands to kill the mood. Plus, we'll never forgive you if you're responsible for a bald patch

How to care for your new hair extensions.

 

✨Always use products as recommend.. E.g Sulphate free shampoo!

 

✨Use a heat protector when using any kind of heat on your hair extensions.

 

✨ Brushing- Always hold your hair from the bonds & brush from the ends up using suitable brush e.g tangle teezer or boar bristle brush.

 

✨ Bedtime- After brushing through, use your argan oil serum to oil your hair, this prevents drying out & leaves your hair full of shine. Then plait so your hair is secure & will not knot up during your sleep.

 

✨ Swimming- braid hair so it's secure, you can apply conditioner as a barrier then when leaving the water, thoroughly rinse hair & wash using your shampoo & conditioner.

 

✨ Washing- Top washes will save you so much time!

Tie away your hair extensions leaving your natural hair on top free, wash, blow dry & style as normal. Don't apply conditioner near bonds. This can cause slippage, apply from mid lengths to ends ( as if you was going to put your hair in a low pony) Apply a treatment mask once a week on full wash. Remember this is conditioner too so same rules apply.

 

✨ Regular maintenance appointments must be kept as this ensures there are no problems with the extensions or your own hair. Not looking after them can cause damage!

 

Enjoy your new longer thicker locks
