Human hair extensions for the summer holidays!
You want to put in human hair extensions for your summer holidays, but you are afraid of damaging them? To help you maintain them or give them back their shine and elasticity, here are some tips and tricks that will be very useful for this summer!
Protect your human hair extensions with the right gestures
Doing the right things is important to maintain your hair and extensions, especially when you go on holiday and they are exposed to the sun, sea or chlorine.
Tip 1: Protect your hair.
Our hair is constantly attacked by our environment, especially in the summer. This is one of the reasons why it is important to protect it. To do this, we recommend using protective sprays.

Tip 2: Shampoo
Choose a shampoo adapted to your hair type. Washing should be done gently, it is not recommended to rub the scalp strongly in order to avoid the production of sebum, making your hair greasy!
Tip 3: Drying
It is best to let your hair dry naturally. But if you want to use a hairdryer, we recommend that you first use a heat protection spray, but also that you do not stick the hairdryer to your head. Otherwise, you risk burning yourself. Next, nourish your hair by using nourishing and repairing products.
Tip 4: Brushing
Brushing your hair should be done at least once in the morning when you wake up and at night before you go to bed. This will ensure that your hair is always well detangled. Avoid using metal or plastic combs. Hard brushes should also be avoided. Instead, use wooden combs or brushes with boar bristles.
Maintain your human hair extensions
Having a long hair is no longer a matter of months or years of waiting. In just a few hours, you can give your hair the length you always wanted with human hair extensions. They are also an excellent solution if you prefer to have hair with more volume. If you want to spend your holidays with gorgeous hair, this is definitely an option you should consider.
It's easy to apply and there's something for every hair type. To keep your hair in tip-top condition throughout your holiday, it's important to look after it well. Wash your hair regularly, at least once a week. If neglected, the combined effects of the sun, sea and pool can shorten the life of your hair by making it dry and brittle. Therefore, you should wash your hair with a mild shampoo that is appropriate for the colour and type of human hair extension.
Just like your natural hair, you should wash your hair by tilting your head back and avoiding rubbing it. After washing, rinse with plenty of warm water and towel dry. It is not recommended to use a hair dryer, except for natural hair extensions.
Maintaining your hair extensions in summer
Taking care of your hair extensions is not always easy, especially in summer. Between the beach, the sun, the pool, certain conditions are met to damage your hair if the right measures are not taken. It is therefore important to adopt useful behaviours to take care of it properly. How to take care of your hair extensions in summer?
The impact of the sun on hair extensions
Natural hair is often the victim of the sun's aggressions, the rays are not good for it. It is the same for human hair extensions. Moreover, when you decide to get hair extensions, you must absolutely plan their maintenance. When they dry out, they are no longer pleasant to keep on your head. The sun is therefore a factor that can cause the extensions to dry out quickly. In fact, they become drier and unfortunately more brittle. Hair that breaks is certainly not what you want! However, when they are very well cared for, the drying time is slower and they last longer.
We therefore advise you to use a hair sunscreen to protect your human hair extensions in summer!
Keeping your extensions for the pool or the beach?
It is not only the UV rays of the sun that attack the hair or its extensions. Sea water and chlorine from the pool can also play the same role. In fact, salt water from the sea can be more damaging to hair than the sun (whether it is your natural hair or your hair extensions). In addition, when UV rays and sea water combine their actions, the hair extensions are strongly impacted if you don't protect them. However, in summer, we often can't help but go to the beach to enjoy the swimming. What you need to know is that this water contains limestone and salt, whose main role on hair and extensions is to tangle them. The chlorine in the pool also has the same role. What is worse and sometimes worrying is that chlorine is not natural and its impact is often greater than the limestone of the sea and the sun which are natural elements.
In the end, you can keep your extensions, but we advise you to :
- Protect your hair
- Detangle your hair
- Avoid putting your head under water if possible
What type of extensions should I choose for the summer?
From synthetic to human hair extensions, the choice is sometimes difficult to make. In fact, each type has its own advantages, whether for the summer or any other season. Synthetic extensions are resistant to UV rays and to the aggression of limescale and chlorine. In summer, it is therefore a type of extension that you can favour. Put them in before you go on holiday and enjoy the sun, swimming and the pool as much as you like. However, don't forget to take care of them regularly.
If, on the other hand, you prefer to keep a natural look, natural extensions are also recommended. They are also expensive, but they are very resistant to the sun and other natural or chemical elements. Moreover, you can keep them for 5 to 6 months without them drying out.
