GREAT OIL TREATMENTS FOR HAIR EXTENSIONS

Your extension hair has generally been through a number of different cleaning and c0louring processes before you became its proud new mama.  Unfortunately, your adopted new hair extensions do not benefit from your own natural oils.  This means you need to step in to keep your hair extensions silky and smooth to prevent tangles and frayed ends.

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.  The hair fibre also contains another lipid complex, the cell membrane complex.  The cell membrane complex is responsible for keeping the fragile layers of the hair fibre adhered to each other, this keeps the hair fibre strong and prevents split ends.   We’ve selected 4 of our favourite oil treatments for keeping hair extensions and hair weave sleek and smooth.

  1. MOROCCAN OIL HAIR TREATMENT

THE FINAL WORD

Due to the chemical processes that extension hair needs to go through during the manufacturing process, oils are essential part of the aftercare process.  When searching for the perfect hair oil for your hair extensions, ensure you choose a light oil that will not build up on your extension hair and leave it flat and lifeless.  The right oil will give your extension hair a new lease of life and prevent oxidation damage due to UV light and heat styling.
