How to care for your remy hair extensions

Have you ever had trouble finding the perfect hair extensions? Have you tried different companies and / or products and found that only after a few weeks or months they look tacky and knotted or simply feel like a burden to put in ? Well now you don’t have to look any further girls as we at Kiki hair have the perfect solution for you with their amazing Remy Hair Extensions.

What is remy hair?

What is Remy Hair and What makes it the best hair extensions you may ask ? Remy hair 100% the highest quality of human hair. Remy human hair is collected through a method in which the hair strands are completely aligned with cuticles in the natural direction of the hair it is attached to. This allows the extensions to be treated like your normal hair, able to be manipulated, treatments and hair masks, this then gives them a longer lifespan. Remy human hair blends seamlessly with your normal hair and remains soft, silky and healthy when cared for correctly.

How to extend the life of your hair extensions

So what are some tips to maximise care and life extension for your Kiki Remy Hair ?

You can look after your extensions by making sure to moisturised with the right products, as hair extensions are dry and can not create the natural moisture like your natural hair it is important to keep them hydrated.

With the proper hair care can last up to a year sometimes even longer depending on how often they are worn. The more you wash and style your extensions the shorter the lifespan will be so be sure to keep your washing to a minimum. The best way to ensure long life for your extensions is to keep free from odors, and only wash every 15-20 wears/ uses.

Make sure that you use a non chemical conditioner, do not brush while wet and add coconut, almond oil for silky moisture. When brushing make sure to brush out the hair from the bottom and then slowly but gently work it up to the top (we recommend using our tangle teezer brush to brush your locks). Regular soft brushing prevents and reduces future tangles. However we recommend that you try not to sleep with them in but if you must sleep with them we recommend having a paddle brush on hand sleeping with them in be sure to put them into a plait or ponytail so that it does not move throughout the night and you can quickly prevent them from becoming knotted and tangled.

Remember “Good Habits = Longer Lasting Hair Extensions which is also cost effective”.


How to keep extensions hydrated?

So how do you keep your extensions hydrated ? Well you can do this through a number of different ways and because remy hair is human hair you can add treatments that you would add to your natural hair. For example you may use a Hydration Mask, What is a Hydration Mask ? A Hydration Mask is something that nourishes the hair and can make a big difference in the strength and shine of the hair.

Plus the best hair masks tend to be packed with hydrating and restorative ingredients. Masks that are formulated with butters, natural oils such as shea, coconut oil, argan oil & avocado oil can help replenish hair and shine.

These Hydration Masks sound amazing, but what if you can’t afford to go into the salon and get these wonderful treatments?
