In my last beauty post I got EasiPro Hair Extensions and I am absolutely loving them!
Now I don’t know about you but I generally like the idea of getting things while rarely knowing exactly what they entail… So in an effort to help you all out I am going to explain what getting these type of extensions involves.
So now you have your extensions… Now what?
Washing your hair becomes less terrifying the more you do it, but for your first time it’s important to remember a few things:
- Don’t tangle the extensions, wash slowly in downward strokes.
- Wash around the tape by gently sliding them in between your forefinger and middle finger
- Don’t put conditioner or other products on the tape, just stick to the lower half of your hair and condition that part well.
- Don’t brush your hair when it’s wet.
- Dry the tape pieces first, and properly, then continue to dry the rest of the hair
- Don’t brush your hair hard, or yank at it, I like to hold the taped sections if I feel like I’m really pulling on them.
- Don’t leave your tape wet for extended periods of time.
- Do enjoy your extensions! They are amazing!
Having said all of this they are tougher than you think, I just like to be gentle on them!
They cost R650 a box to take out and reapply closer to the head, this usually needs to happen after 2 months. Your hair will last about 6 months before you need to buy new boxes of hair. These will cost you a few thousand rand… It’s not cheap but if you can afford it, it’s an amazing transformation and well worth it!
When we were away on holiday last week I ended up with wet hair that I didn’t dry immediately, it was my first time with the extensions. The hair dried amazingly unlike my natural hair, and though I won’t be making a habit of it, it didn’t seem to do any damage to the tape. Below I’ve put photos of how I wet my hair and then how it dried naturally (with a hat over my natural not so perfect hair):
