Winter is here… the nights are longer, the rain has started to fall, and the weather is getting colder! Fun, fun, right? The winter also presents a unique set of challenges for our hair extensions. So, let’s take a look at a few great tips that can help you to keep your hair extensions looking fabulous and feeling great during the colder months.
Winter friendly hair products – You’re probably going to have to switch up your hair care products during the winter! One of the worst impacts of the cold weather is that it makes hair brittle and dry because it strips moisture away. So, to combat this, stock up on those hydrating shampoos and conditioners! These products will get that moisture back into your hair, ensuring you have that lush natural glow and shine even while the weather is bleak and miserable.

Have you considered growing your hair? – Yes, we know, people have probably said this to you many times before. However, no matter how well you care for your extensions, you should not wear them all of the time, as it can damage your hair. Hair problems, including loss and stunted growth, tend to happen because of stress. A lot of people today are turning to CBD and cannabis products to help them with stress-reduction, and this may be something that works for you.

Trimming – The dry and cold air can often cause split ends and breakage. Of course, you don’t need to worry about this with your extensions but you do need to with your natural hair. Split ends and breakage can cause your extensions to look less natural when they are clipped in, which is why it is a good idea to give your natural hair regular trims throughout the colder months.
Hair oils and conditioners – It is also worth applying a deep conditioning treatment to your hair extensions once a week during the winter. You can use anything from a hot oil treatment to a hair mask – whatever your favorite deep conditioning treatment is. However, you need to make sure you do not apply the treatment too close to the clips, as you don’t want any slippage! Our Blissful Brooklyn Hair Conditioner was featured in Glamour and Vanity Fair magazines.
Limit heat styling – One of the great advantages of human clip in hair extensions is that they can be styled like our own hair. However, it is wise to keep the heat styling to a minimum during the winter because the heated indoors make our extensions more vulnerable to the dry winter air.
So there you have it: some great tips on keeping your extensions look fab during the winter! If you follow the advice that has been provided, you should be able to ensure that your hair and your extensions are healthy, happy, and shiny throughout the winter months. Do not let the cold weather outside get you down and get in your way.
