Hair Tip #1 Too Much Heat Even With Proper Care Can Lead to Heat Damaged Hair

If you are going to use heat on your hair to help blend your texture of hair with your hair extensions, it’s very important to use the lowest heat setting you need to achieve your level of desired straightness. Everyone doesn’t need to flat iron or straighten their hair at 350 or 400 degrees so that it why it is very important to test the heat setting of your styling tool, starting at 300 degrees, to straighten your hair and then increase in temperature as needed. I recommend a specific type of flat iron when straightening your hair because personally, it has and continues to give me consistent results with my hair.

Hair Tip #2 Use Extensions That Mimic Your Texture and Curl Pattern for Flawless Blending

To prevent the use of heat styling to blend your real hair with your hair extensions, find extensions that match your curl pattern perfectly! This may be difficult at first, especially if you are new to the world of wigs and weaves, but it eventually becomes second nature when choosing the extensions that are best for you. Keep in consideration that each type of hair or extensions has a different level of maintenance considering the fact that maintaining straight weaves are low maintenance while maintaining a curly weave requires co washing and proper detangling to minimize breakage, matting and shedding.


Hair Tip #3 Use Roller or Flexi Rods to Make Your Hair Mimic Curly Extensions

Using flexi rods and Perm rods specifically, can help you work with any type of curly or wavy hair extensions that you can get your hands on! When setting your hair with a perm rod set, the wider the circumference of the perm rod, the wider and looser of a curl you can create with your hair and if done well, you can manipulate loose curls to resemble wavy hair to match your hair extensions. Use smaller perm rods for a tighter more spring like curl if your extensions are curly or tightly coiled.
