How To Care For Hair After Hair Extension?


Although braids offer a variety of possibilities, if not properly installed and cared for, they can damage your natural hair and even cause hair loss.

Do extensions help your hair grow?
For many, the answer is not as clear as it seems.
In fact, human hair knitting won't stop your hair from growing and can definitely help your transparent lace wig grow naturally.
That's because braided extensions are also a protective hairstyle that can help you make your natural hair grow faster.
After all, extensions are an effective way to protect your natural wig deals from heat and chemical damage.
In addition, a natural 6x6 closure wig braided under a human braid has less chance of breaking and falling out when tossing and turning at night, and is less combed or brushed than regular hair, thus preventing it from breaking.
So if someone asks, "Does knitting make your hair grow back?"
The answer is yes.

How to grow hair under braiding?
Extremely tight braids under braiding or required glue installation can cause your hair to break naturally.
Read on for some important tips to help keep your natural hair healthy and naturally grow faster while wearing knits.
1. Make sure your braid is not too tight
This is probably the biggest and most common mistake people make.
If you weave your braid too tightly, it can put a lot of pressure on your hair follicles, which can lead to hair loss or even baldness.
Naturally, it can also cause a lot of damage to your natural hair and scalp, and even headaches.
So don't hesitate to tell your stylist to loosen the braid when you feel that he or she is making it too tight.
You shouldn't sacrifice the health of your natural hair for any style.

2. Don't hold your knitting for too long
It's not a good idea to keep knitting for long periods of time.
After all, your scalp and natural hair need to breathe and rest.
Once worn for too long, hair can weaken, fall out and even start to smell bad.
Here, we sincerely recommend that you do not store your woven stitches for any more than 4 to 6 weeks.
Wear your own hair for a few weeks to give the scalp some time to breathe and reduce the stress of weaving on the hair.

3. Wash your hair at least once a week
You should wash your hair at least once a week with a sulfate-free shampoo. This will remove buildup and oil without drying your hair, thus keeping your scalp healthy and clean.
To thoroughly clean your scalp and hair, concentrate the shampoo on your scalp and massage with your fingertips.
In addition, be sure to spend a little extra time rinsing your scalp, hair, and fabric to make sure there are no excess shampoo residues.

4. Deep condition your hair
Even if your hair is perfectly protected under braided hair, that doesn't mean you should skip the conditioner.
A good conditioner helps with easy combing and extensions and keeps hair hydrated.
Remember to give your hair a good rinse to make sure all the conditioner is rinsed off.

5. Use a leave-in conditioner to treat your scalp
In fact, taking care of your scalp is one of the most important steps you can take to ensure healthy hair.
According to hairstylists, nourishing the scalp is important in all styles of protection.
For example, you can use a leave-in conditioner that contains antioxidants to neutralize free radicals on the surface of your scalp.

6. Get a scalp massage
Just as good soil is essential for growing healthy plants and flowers, a healthy scalp is a foundation for healthy hair growth.
An easy way to stimulate hair growth at home is to give yourself a scalp massage, which will increase blood flow to the scalp, strengthen the roots and help nutrients reach the hair follicles faster.
You can use dry hair for your own scalp massage, but adding some natural oils to the mix, such as rosemary, castor, or coconut oil, will get you much more done.
To give yourself a hot oil treatment, massage the oil into your scalp and work it all the way to the ends of your hair.
Pile your hair on top of your head, cover it with a shower cap, and blow through it with a hairdryer for 15 minutes.
Doing so will help your scalp absorb all the nutrients and help promote hair growth.

7. Trim your split ends regularly
Regular pruning removes dry, damaged split ends, which are essential for natural hair to grow naturally and healthily.
If left untreated, split ends can extend up the hair bundle, leading to more breakage.
But if you or your stylist cut off too much at a time, your hair won't grow.
It is recommended that you have a trim every six to six months.
