What products should I use on my new extensions?
Using the correct products on your new human hair extensions is important and greatly affects how long they last. Hair extensions have usually been quite treated chemically and do require a little more loving. We use Indian remy hair for all of our extensions. The hair is all dark brown to begin with and is bleached back and then redyed in most cases, particularly for the lighter colours. Because of the bleaching process it is important to use products suited to extensions that are not too stripping of moisture. Supermarket products are unfortunately not up to scratch as most shampoos contain sodium laureth sulphate, a common foaming agent. This may feel great for natural fine slightly oily hair as it leaves your hair feeling squeaky clean but not good for extensions.
