Even the best human hair extensions can look good only if the natural hair supporting them is healthy and strong. Given this, there are after-care measures which must be followed to see that the human hair extensions maintain their style, shape and health. Since human hair extensions are made from extracted natural hair, their after care is almost similar to that for natural hair. For dry and brittle natural hair, use intense moisturizing shampoos and condition using mild conditioners and hot oil when cleaning the human hair extensions attached to such hair. Avoid the use of mousse, which makes the human hair extensions shiny in the short-run, but dulls them over a longer term. Instead, use a thickening lotion. For natural hair which is greasy, avoid repeated washes to clear the human hair extensions of the grease. This is because during washing, the hair loses its nourishing oils, while the roots remain greasy. This grease is then quickly transferred back to the human hair extensions. This results in the hair becoming dry and brittle, while being greasier still. For washing such human hair extensions, use mild shampoos, such as children’s shampoos, and condition the middle and ends of the human hair extensions instead of the roots. Avoid oily foods.
