Yes, you can have extensions and maintain your active summer lifestyle! However, the warmer months can be hard on your hair – here are a few tips to help extend the longevity of your C&M extensions.
Only use mineral sunscreen
One of the main ingredients in regular sunscreen can discolor your extensions, resulting in a pinkish tone.
UV Ray + Heat Protection
UV Rays and direct heat can be harmful to not just your extensions, but to your own hair as well. Look for hair products that provide UV and/or heat protection to help keep your hair color from fading and drying out. Try using Iles Formula Finishing Serum for that extra protection while never weighing your hair down.
Keep Hair Nourished & Hydrated
Make sure to use leave-In conditioners, hydrating balms, and hair oils this summer to keep your hair from drying out. Mr. Smith Leave-In Conditioner is a great treatment for locking in moisture without weighing hair down.
Use Less Heat Tools
Heat tools paired with the summer heat can be damaging to your extensions and your hair. Start going to bed with Sleep by C&M for heatless waves.
Enhance your natural waves
Our beach wave enhancements allow you to air dry and embrace your natural wave pattern. Pair with Mr. Smith Curl Cream for an extra bounce and added moisture while controlling unwanted frizz.
Swimming With Extensions
Make sure to put your hair in a ponytail, bun, or braid before swimming.
Wet your hair and apply a leave-in conditioner before getting into the pool or ocean. There are often minerals found in bodies of water that can react poorly with your extensions, causing dryness and discoloration.
Be sure to rinse your hair immediately after swimming.
Avoid Matting & Tangling
Keep hair off shoulders during summer heat and brush through your hair multiple times a day.
Brush each row individually, starting mid-way and making your way to the top of the weft.
