Yesterday, I posted for the first time about washing your Human Hair Extensions. I realized that I had never discussed the best types of shampoos to use on your Human Hair Extensions. So, today let me talk about shampoos. The most important thing…
First off, it is not good to over wash your Human Hair Extensions. And, it is really not good to wash any hair with a shampoo that has sulfates. Sulfates can lead to tangling and generally damaging the hair. When washing with good shampoos, you really only need to wash your Human Hair Extensions 2 to 3 times a week.
Here is the problem with sulfates. That frothy, white lather that forms when you shampoo or use conditioner comes from the sulfates in the hair products. Bubbles are fun and they do clean your hair. The problem is that they clean too well.
Your scalp produces natural oils called sebum that nourish your hair. When you have Human Hair Extensions, the sebum oil that your hair naturally secrets is soaked up like a sponge by your Human Hair Extensions. This is the best kind of moisturizing you can have for Human Hair Extensions.
Now sulfates aren’t terrible. They don’t cause cancer and they don’t irritate everyone’s skin. But Human Hair Extensions and sulfates just don’t mix. Because they tend to over cleanse and wipe out those good natural oils, they leave hair drier and drier with each use. If your hair is too oily, then some sulfates can help cleanse hair. But if your hair is dry, then sulfates can be irritating to the scalp.
In general, I would always recommend that you wash you Human Hair Extensions with a creamy non sulfate cleanser.
