Are Hair Extensions Hard to Maintain?
Many women dream of naturally beautiful, luxurious hair – but unfortunately, this can often be out of our control! For our clients and our very own team here at LDL, hair extensions offer an opportunity to get an effortlessly amazing head of locks. And the best part? They don’t take an army to maintain!
Here are a few simple things you need to know about maintaining extensions…
Why so many people think extensions are hard to manage…
First of all, let’s answer the question of why on earth extensions have such a bad reputation for being hard to manage in the first place! As we’ve talked about before on our blog, many pre-made extensions are created using factory hair. This hair is treated with harsh chemicals before it is sold to the consumer, a process that strips it of its health and beauty.
Because of this, people who wear factory extensions will notice that they tend to matte, shed and tangle quite easily. In this situation, many people feel that they must treat their hair with many different – and often expensive – products just to make their extensions look and feel beautiful. On top of this, factory hair extensions only tend to last anywhere between a few weeks and a few months before they will need replacing altogether.
It’s safe to say that this isn’t the experience any hair extension wearer wants to have. And if you’re wearing factory extensions, it’s easy to see why you would think they are difficult to maintain. But the truth is that when you’re wearing high-quality extensions, maintaining them is a breeze…
The LDL difference…
Here at LDL, we only use the very best Virgin, Caucasian hair to make our custom extensions. There are a few reasons why this is crucial to achieving an easy-to-maintain result:
Firstly, this hair has never been chemically altered in any way. It is in its completely natural form when it arrives in our salon. Because this hair hasn’t ever been treated or dyed, it remains healthy and beautiful when we transform it into your very own set of extensions. Here at LDL, our favourite phrase is “the truth comes out in the wash.” This is simply because, when it comes to extensions, the more you wash them, the more their true quality is revealed. With factory extensions, they will deteriorate with every wash, leaving you with hair that doesn’t look or feel natural at all. LDL’s custom wefts, however, will maintain their health and beauty for years. The simple reason for this is that our authentically Virgin, Caucasian locks offer the highest quality results for extension wearers because they have never been compromised in any way.
Another reason why our extensions are effortless to maintain is because they are custom-designed for your particular needs. During your complementary consultation, we will take your measurements and get an idea of what look you’re wanting from your extensions. Then, we’ll hand make your wefts to your exact specifications. This custom service ensures that your extensions and natural locks blend together flawlessly and look completely natural – so you won’t need to style them every day to ensure they look amazing!
A simple guide to maintaining your LDL wefts
When wearing LDL extensions, there are only a few things you’ll need to do to keep them looking fresh and fabulous. They are:
- Come to us for a reinstallation every 6-weeks. This is the most crucial maintenance requirement, as your extensions will naturally move down over time as your hair grows. Your appointments every 6-weeks will simply ensure that each weft is where it needs to be to look and feel amazing.
- Invest in a high-quality shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment. This simply ensures your natural locks and your wefts are taken care of with every wash.
- We strongly recommend that our clients invest in hair styling tools by EVY. Available to purchase in-salon, these hair tools minimise damage to your locks with state of the art technology. This is great for our hair extension wearers, as you won’t run the risk of severely drying out your hair every time you curl, straighten or dry your locks.
And that’s it! Our approach to extensions is simple – they should feel so natural and so effortless that you almost forget you’re wearing them! Because we offer only the best of the best, you won’t need to worry about spending all your time and money on maintaining them.
