Great Oil Treatments For Hair Extensions
Your extension hair have generally been through a number of different processes before you became its proud new mama. Unfortunately your adopted new hair extensions do not benefit from your own natural oils so you need to step in to keep your hair from looking like a brillo pad mess. Oil treatments aim to replicate the benefits of sebum. Sebum is efficient at creating a waterproof barrier, this keeps hair healthy by sealing the hair shaft preventing moisture loss and prevents excess absorption of water present in the atmosphere which helps prevent your hair from frizzing and kinking. We’ve selected 3 of our favourite oil treatments for keeping hair extensions and hair weave sleek and smooth.
1. Moroccan oil hair treatment
The Moroccan Oil products emerged and took the hair industry by storm. Their hair products are designed to calm distressed hair by providing a firm, resilient barrier against harsh environmenral factors such as extreme heat and wind whilst lubricating the hair shaft to leave your hair feeling glossy and smooth to the touch.
