Here at Beautique, we get a lot of questions on style maintenance. And with the growing popularity and prevalence of extensions, one of the main questions we’re asked is about keeping the hair clean without sacrificing quality or style. Well, we are always happy to help.
The quick answer is to simply braid your hair in sections and wash only the roots. Once done, air dry your hair or sit under a dome dryer to speed up the process.
To elaborate, when dividing your hair, create at least two braids, but no more than 10. This way, you’re able to saturate the hair just enough to make sure you can get all of the shampoo rinsed out in the end. While washing your hair, be sure to focus the shampoo on your scalp. The shampoo will rinse the dirt out of the hair, so this is the best method to ensure a thorough cleaning.
We often recommend that people with extensions wash their hair this way once a week with the coldest water they can handle. Of course, this schedule depends on how active they are, so it may very well be more frequent or less often.
Next time you’re in the shop, let’s talk about it. Our stylists will be able to advise you on the best wash schedule to keep your locks fresh and you worry free.
