Guide on how to prevent face breakouts when wearing hair extensions

Washing your hair frequently is just as important to your hair health as you would your skin. By shampooing and conditioning at least once a week, residue from hair extensions that could lead to breakouts can be removed.

Keeping up with an effective hair care regimen can help keep your hair looking healthy, in turn making hair extensions last a lot longer.

Take the time to invest in products that will suit the type of hair extensions you have, and make sure you're cleansing regularly for the best results.






Avoid using too much heat on your hair

Styling your hair can be a great way to look your best; however, excessive use of hot tools on your hair can lead to disaster.

Too much heat can cause the sebum glands in your scalp to produce excessive oil which could subsequently travel down the hair shaft and cause face breakouts. Instead of using hot tools, try opting for heatless styles.

Try braiding or twisting your hair into updos, applying foam rollers overnight, or trying a messy bun for days when you are feeling lazy.

All these ideas will ensure that you still look stylish without damaging your beautiful locks in the process!

Keep your hair clean and free of product build-up

Many of us have the same routine when it comes to our hair -- lather, rinse, repeat.

But the truth is, the same routine doesn't always deliver the same results.

That's where the miracles of clarifying shampoo come in!

Clarifying shampoo helps get rid of product build-up and leaves our manes feeling fresh and new. However, while it may be tempting to use the clarifying shampoo more often than the bottle suggests, you should try to restrict it to no more than once a week or twice a month.

Find the right balance that works for your hair texture; too much use can dry out the scalp and lead to further breakouts. To counter this dryness, be sure to give your hair a deep conditioning treatment every week to maintain a healthy balance.







Use a silky satin bonnet

Sleeping with a silky satin bonnet is an important part of any beauty routine to keep skin clean and healthy.

Not only does it look lovely and feel fabulous against the skin, but hair extensions also stay in better condition too. The special properties of silk or satin are great for maintaining your skin’s natural condition, as it helps to reduce oil and dirt transfer onto your pillow which can lead to fewer unwanted face breakouts.

Securing your hair at night by wearing a bonnet will also ensure your style stays intact for longer and can reduce split ends for super soft locks in the morning!

An essential reminder: for fewer breakouts, remember to clean your satin bonnet at least once a week!



Be gentle with your skin when removing makeup

Removing your makeup at the end of a long day can be quite the chore, but good skin care habits will keep your complexion looking healthy.

When you remove your makeup, try not to scrub too hard- exfoliating is great for your skin, but being gentle and using a soft facial cloth or cotton pads when taking off your makeup will prevent irritation and help you avoid breakouts.

This way, you'll have smooth and clean skin that'll be ready for the next day!
