An article from eonline.com reports on Ariana Grande's move to defend her hair extensions:
[Ariana Grande] says it was her years on the small screen that "completely destroyed" her tresses. "I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first four years of playing Cat," she shares, referring to her sitcoms Victorious and Sam & Cat. "I wear extensions but I wear it in a ponytail because my actually [sic] hair is so broken that it looks absolutely ratchet and absurd when I let it down."
Women generally share Ariana's hair sentiments. There could eventually be a point of natural hair dying after all the dyeing. Trusty hair extensions are literal blessings to womankind in these instances. Extensions give natural-looking, gorgeous locks when natural hair gives out. Ads tell you that you can treat hair extensions normally like natural hair, but the "treatment" they're referring to entails ideal hair care regimens.
For the essentials, invest on a wide-toothed comb or soft-bristled brush, mild moisturizing shampoo and leave-in conditioner. De-tangle with your fingers prior to combing gently to avoid shedding. Hair extensions need to be stored appropriately as well, so clean and dry them first before placing them in spacious airlock containers.
Should there be a need to tie your hair, do it gently. Tie a high pony to prevent sweat exposure, and a low pony during sleep to fend off tangles or creases. Remember to use a swimming cap if you're going to dive into chlorine-treated pools.
As with most beauty matters, experts would be the best bet if you're planning to style your extensions. Take your hairpiece to the pros for styling, comprehensive de-tangling, trims, and re-fitting. It would be better to avoid DIY mishaps.
Make the best choices from the very start. Invest in products from reputable companies like Her Hair Company that supply quality products and provide customer service. Their guaranteed best hair extensions can be your temporary or even permanent solution to "absolutely ratchet" hair.
