1. Quality

This is probably the main thing to think about before parting with your cash. Make sure the pair you choose are well designed and made from quality materials. It is worth checking out the blade quality and also the motor power as you want a decent amount to allow it to cut properly. The Aphrodite Chrome Cordless Mega Taper Hair Clipper 3000s is a great example of a well-made hair clipper that has plenty of power.

2. Look at the accessories you get

Top tips for caring for your hair extensions

Top tips for caring for your hair extensions

Hair extensions are amazing - they can completely transform our hair and overall look, but in order to maintain this look, we need to ensure we are giving our hair extensions the proper love and attention they deserve. Below we've put together some tops tips on hair extensions aftercare.

1. Brush thoroughly and regularly

Brushing your extensions is a regular exercise and something you should remember to do often, just like brushing your teeth. You also need to ensure you're using the right equipment for the job too. By using a looper brush or soft bristle brush you can detangle your hair without causing damage to it. Start at the bottom, as you would with your natural hair and begin to detangle that area first, then work your way upwards to other sections of your hair. Be gentle with your hair extensions as they aren't as strong as your natural hair.

2. Wash with the appropriate products

Your hair extensions need extra love when it comes to washing them. You will need to use the recommended aftercare range for your hair extensions as this will make sure that the shampoo and conditioner don't affect the hair extension bonds or the quality of the hair. A good choice is shampoos and conditioners that contain keratin such as the Goldiloxs keratin hair extension shampoo and conditioner set. Remember that when you are washing your hair, you should do so in lukewarm water, as the temperature can have a negative effect on both your hair extensions and natural hair and only use conditioner on the mid-lengths and ends of your hair.

3. Use deep conditioning treatments weekly

As well as your specific shampoo and conditioner, you should also be using a regular intensive treatment such as a mask to help ensure your hair extensions are receiving the necessary oils to keep them healthy and soft. A great product to try is the Goldilox keratin hair extension masque which will provide your hair with all the necessary nutrients it needs to look and feel amazing.

You should treat your hair extensions with these products at least once a week to ensure they stay in top condition.

Follow these tips and you can guarantee your hair extensions will last and look fabulous for longer!
