Read This! Don’t Ruin Your Extensions!

Did you check the weather this week??? It’s looking a little like this: ☀️☀️ ☀️ ☀️

Before we get too excited, we need to cover some ground rules:

Mineral Sunscreen!

Not only are you protecting your skin from the harmful rays & harsh chemicals but you are also protecting your extensions from turning orange, pink, and brassy!

Some experts have argued that mineral sunscreen is safer than chemical sunscreen, because the mineral formula like in Sun Bum Mineral SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray, sits on the surface of the skin while chemical versions can be absorbed into the bloodstream – Yikes!

As for your hair, using a chemical sunscreen will create a chemical reaction on your extensions and turn them orange, pink, and brassy.

How to start your summer off right while protecting your extensions:

  1. Purchase sunscreen for your body and face – Must be mineral-based
  2. Keep hair pulled back while spraying sunscreen
  3. Wash and blow-dry your hair immediately after swimming (click to watch video)
  4. Brush hair often to keep it tangle-free
  5. Keep hair braided so it doesn’t tangle in the wind
  6. When swimming brush hair, then put in a tight Ballerina bun, so hair doesn’t get loose and cause excessive tangles + matting.
