Many women are opting for extensions from Malaysia, for a variety of reasons. Natural Malaysian hair typically comes in darker colors, and while it is usually straight, its texture allows it to be easily styled. If properly cared for, these types of extensions can last for quite a long time, making them a worthwhile investment. Here are a few tips on caring for Malaysian extensions.
Tip #1: Brush Well
In order to keep your extensions tangle free, brush them well. It’s generally recommended to brush them each night before bed, and before getting them wet. Once they are wet, wait for them to dry completely before brushing them to avoid breaking any strands. Brushing often will extend the life of your extensions, by preventing knots and tangles from occurring.
Tip #2: Wash Carefully
Avoid strong, harsh chemicals when working with your extensions. Instead, use organic products that are designed for use on extensions or on sensitive hair. Avoid shampoos containing sulfate, as it will strip any healthy appearance from your hair. Sulfate is designed to remove oils from hair; as your extension won’t have any oil, it will remove healthy nutrients instead. When you wash your extensions, do so in an even downward motion. Keep the hair evenly apart, and avoid rubbing or brushing it together while it is wet. This will inevitably cause knots.
Tip #3: Don’t Blow Dry
Don’t use a blow dryer on your extensions. In fact, it’s advisable that you avoid heating products altogether. Repeated use of a blow dryer or other heated beauty products can cause damage to your extensions, dramatically reducing their lifespan. Your extensions will be thick enough to coax into shape without the use of straighteners or curling irons. If you do find that some extra product is needed, try using a small amount of almond oil. It will help mold your hair into shape while moisturizing it at the same time.
