Styling NBR hair extensions should be fun! You want your hair to look and feel luxurious. The key to beautiful and healthy hair extensions is using the right products and tools for styling your hair.
One reason NBR hair extensions are the #1 hair extension method available, is they use Bohyme hand-tied, human hair. Because this is natural human hair, you can curl, blow dry, and flatiron - unlike with synthetic hair extensions.
However, you can still damage the hair if you do not use the right products and tools for styling. You must also use these products and tools properly to maintain the health of your hair. While I want you to have fun, I also want the extension hair to last so that you have a rewarding NBR hair extension experience.
My Favorite Products and Tools:
Wella Luxe Oil Keratin Boost Line - This product line gives hair a smooth and healthy texture. I like to use these products as a leave in conditioner and for detangling.
Argan Oil - Argan oil is essential for keeping extension hair moisturized and healthy. When I apply the oil, I make sure to apply it to only the extension hair so that I do not weigh down my natural hair.
Wella Thermal Image - I spray Wella's Thermal Image to the ends of the extensions before I curl my hair. I make sure to let the product soak in before I curl.
BaByliss Curling Iron - I love the heat and tension control options of the BaByliss heating tools. A quality curling iron is key to not heat damaging your hair as you style.
Wella's Keratin Restore Mask - I use Wella's Keratin Restore Mask once per week to keep the extension hair moisturized and feeling like butter. This product is great for restoring the healthy luster of your hair.
Recommended Hair Schedule:
The key to healthy beautiful extensions is making your shampoo last for several days. You want to work your products and daily style so that you do not need to shampoo daily. This will extend the life of your extensions.
Day 1: After I shampoo, condition and style my hair I like to wear it down and luxurious on Day 1.
Day 2: On Day 2, I like to touch up only a few pieces of my hair with the curling iron. My hair still looks fresh and beautiful.
Day 3: As my hair starts to look more worn and greasy, I like to dry shampoo my hair. I also wear my hair up in a cute ponytail or braid.
One final tip to extend the days between shampooing is at night to put Argan oil on my extensions and sleep with a braid. This helps to keep the extensions from tangling. Plus I wake up with a simple yet beautiful wave to my hair.
