Did you know that using too much shampoo may damage your natural hair and extensions?

 

The natural oils in your hair are an important part of keeping it healthy.

If your hair is already dry or damaged, using too much shampoo can remove the moisture your hair needs.  This makes your hair even more vulnerable to damage. This problem can become even worse with harsher shampoos, such as clarifying and volumizing shampoos.

It’s important to take extra care when using these kinds of products. Try to limit the use of these types of shampoos to before applying the extensions, since only then, it is important to remove all oils for a better application and hold. Opt for moisturizing shampoos (usually the white ones).

Another tip is to use cleansing conditioners between regular washes with shampoo. You can also apply at the ends of the hair a small portion of coconut oil to protect the it from the harsh ingredients present in most shampoos.

Last but not least, remember that shampoos are meant to be used only in the scalp not on your entire hair.

Take good care of your hair extensions and they will last longer! 💛
