Do you notice that over time your virgin hair extensions feel greasy, weighed down, or lifeless. Does you hair start to misbehave and feel heavy all of a sudden? Does it start to look and feel limp? If so, then your problem is most likely that your virgin hair is full of product buildup.
Where does Product Buildup Come From?
Product buildup occurs when we use products on our hair over time. The types of products that can cause product buildup, are holding sprays, moisturizers, mousses, gels, and even chlorine and chemicals from swimming pools. Some shampoos and conditioners can also leave deposits onto your virgin hair extensions.
How Do You Get Rid Of Product Buildup?
Virgin hair is human hair so it should be treated as such. Just like with our own hair it can become greasy and weighed down when we use too much product? The easiest way to get rid of product buildup in your virgin hair extensions is to wash your hair with clarifying shampoo. Clarifying shampoo is designed to thoroughly cleanse the hair to get rid of the deposits that linger from the use of some hair products. It will completely strip the hair shaft of any product buildup. There is no special technique to clarifying your hair extensions, you would wash the hair just as you would when using a regular shampoo.
Once you have clarified your virgin hair extensions it is a must that you follow up with a good deep condition. Remember clarifying shampoo will rid your hair of any buildup and it will also rid your hair of moisture. Virgin hair extensions need moisture to thrive so deep conditioning is a crucial step. The deep condition will replace the moisture that was lost during the clarifying process. After you deep condition, let the hair air dry and enjoy!
