Hair Care Guide: Extension Addition

You’ve FINALLY made the decision to get semi-permanent extensions but you have SO MANY questions. What kind of maintenance is required? Do I have to spend hours getting ready in the morning? Are products going to cost me a fortune? Of course, consultations are the best way to answer all of these questions, but here are a few answers that should help!

Maintenance Doesn't Have To Take Forever

Good news first! — there are a ton of tips and tricks to making your morning routine easier than it was before you got extensions. Washing everyday? Forget it! It’s time to join the rest of us that only wash their hair once a week. Dry Shampoo will be your new best BFF. Which brings us to your next question. Do I have to spend a fortune on products?

Products Are Everything!

The question of whether you need to spend a lot of money on products for your new extensions is quite multi-faceted. How long do you want your extensions to last? You can get away with only buying Shampoo, Conditioner and a Leave-In Treatment, and your extensions will only last for a few months. BUT if you want your extensions to look amazing and last for its full lifespan, then products are key!

Moisture, Moisture, Moisture

You have to keep in mind that your extensions are not attached to your scalp, and don’t receive the same moisture and nutrients that your natural hair does. Moisture is what keeps your extensions from shedding and keeps them looking shiny. Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner are all about keeping that moisture locked into your Sparkle Extensions!! Their leave in treatment, Pureology Hydrate Superfood, is another MUST and should be used at least once every two washes.


Adding oils into your Sparkle Extensions daily will keep them from drying out. Amika The Wizard will not only leave your new hair feeling silky smooth, but the smell is out of this world! You can spray this product in your hair right out of the shower, or you can use it on dry hair to add that moisture back into your hair when you need it most. Biosilk Silk Therapy Oil is also a great addition for your purse and can be applied throughout the day, before or after brushing.

Protect Against The Elements

Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield is great for those summer days when the elements are working against you. It’s like sunscreen for your hair! If you make the choice to take your extensions on vacation with you (how can you possibly go without them?) then an environmental spray is the best way to keep them from drying out with the high temperatures and the salty air.

To Brush, Or Not To Brush

Whether you choose to wear your extensions curled, or straight, brushing is a necessity throughout the day. Brushing your curls will only make them bouncier, and brushing your straight locks will keep them looking shiny. Wet Brush has a great mini brush that fits in the palm of your hand, and can be taken anywhere! I don’t know if you’ve heard BUT, brushing in public is no longer a faux pas!!

Curls! Curls! Curls!
