Those with natural hair extensions might wonder if their hair needs special treatment during this time of year, dear.

Small gestures to do every day

Know that in the sun, you must protect your natural hair extensions from chlorine, the sun or even salt from sea water which make the extensions dry and brittle. This is why it is necessary that each time you go swimming in the pool or in sea water, you think to cover your head with a waterproof swimming cap if you want to swim your head underwater like a mermaid.
If you just want to swim without putting your head and therefore your natural locks underwater, you do not need to cover your head with a bathing cap but be sure to tie your hair up so that the tips of your extensions hair is not in contact with water.

For those for whom summer rhymes with tanning and who like to bask for hours in the sun, remember to soak your natural hair extensions several times a day with a “protective sun spray”. This will allow your natural locks to maintain their flexibility, color and shine without becoming rough, hard and dull.

The types of products to use

- Natural oils: take care to wash your hair after each swim and remember to integrate natural oils into your ritual. Before each wash, apply a little natural oil to the length of your hair extensions, paying particular attention to the ends. Then let sit for two hours to thoroughly rehydrate your dried out extension before washing your hair. The most suitable oils to use for this summer treatment are jojoba oil, coconut oil and castor oil. You can get them in pharmacies or at some small traders.
