There’s something incredibly chic and edgy about waist-length hair. Perhaps it’s because the extremely long length gives a mermaid like feel to your hair, or maybe it’s just because many of us love the look of long hair regardless of the feel. If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge to try sexy waist-length extensions you’re in the right place, we’re sharing some tips to consider making sure you’re locks look gorgeous!
Focus on Moisture Care
Regardless of how great the application of extensions is, they can put some weight on your natural hair. One of the best ways to really keep your hair healthy, looking great and maintaining the combination of extension and natural hair is to ensure that your hair is well moisturized. Moisture, and constant moisture, is essential to keeping hair healthy and strong. Many experts suggest using shampoo and conditioning products that really emphasize on moisture addition and retention in the hair. In addition, many suggest using a leave-in conditioner to keep hair well moisturized throughout the day-it can also be great for allowing tangles and knots easy to get rid of so you’re not risking pulling/ripping the extensions too often.
Be Aware of the Length
Waist-length hair is incredibly long for hair, especially if you’re not used to handling the length normally. After getting waist-length extensions you’re going to want to make sure you’re being as aware as possible as to where your hair is. Think we’re crazy? Well, you’d be surprised at just how many places waist-length hair can get caught and cause a lot of pulling and pressure on your extensions and scalp. To really make sure you’re caring for your extensions in a safe way, keep your awareness alert around where your hair may be floating or getting tangled into.
Avoid Too Much Heat
Heat in general can add a lot of stress and vulnerability to hair. When you have waist-length extensions you’ll want to avoid using too much heat on a regular basis. We’re all about having fun with styling your hair, but make sure you’re not using heat every single day to style your hair. Many experts suggest allowing your hair to air dry as often as possible to give your hair a nice break from a hair dryer. In addition, make sure you’re not using heat settings that are too hot as they can cause damage to your extensions.
Give Yourself Time
Let’s be honest here, waist-length hair is a WHOLE lot of hair. That being said, you’re going to need to factor in a bit more time in styling your hair than you normally do. Rushing through using heated styling tools can cause a lot of damage to your hair and extensions. Instead of rushing, make it a habit to give yourself a bit more time and practice your patience with styling your hair.
