Why you shouldn’t sleep with wet hair when you have hair extensions

Can I sleep with wet hair when I have hair extensions?

The answer is NO.  Sleeping with wet hair extensions can cause a few problems that you will want to avoid. Lets cover what sleeping with wet hair extensions can do to your hair and your extensions.

1. Sleeping with wet hair extensions can cause tangling and matting

If you go to bed with your extensions wet or even damp, you are going to cause a big problem at the root. When you sleep you tend to toss and turn and this means that your root area is being rubbed back and forth. This causes the root area to become intertwined and results in matting.  Once matting occurs there is nothing you can do but go back to your extension stylist to have the extensions removed and the area brushed out.

2. It will be difficult to brush

You will wake up with unruly hair and possibly matted roots that can be much more difficult to brush. You will start brushing your hair more aggressively and not gently, like recommended. The likelihood of the extensions causing your natural hair and scalp damage goes up substantially since you would be a lot more likely to brush your hair more aggressively causing ripping and pulling.

3. Your hair extension bonds will breakdown quicker

Bonds, left damp will absorb extra moisture, and begin to break down prematurely. This means the investment you made in hair extensions you had expected to last for months, and months, is needing to be replaced sooner.

Moral of the story – go to sleep with dry hair. If you normally wash your hair at night, but don’t think you will have time to dry it properly before bed, just spray it generously with some dry shampoo and leave it in while you sleep. Even if your hair still looks oily in the morning, it is better than dealing with matted hair extensions.

Why you should consider getting hair extensions

Hair extensions have become a high fashion accessory used by women all around the world and there are reasons why they are growing in popularity. Check out some of the benefits below.

1. Add length. Extensions will instantly give you the long hair you’ve been wanting. Add only a few inches or add a lot, it’s up to you!

2. Grow your natural hair out. Give your hair a break and let the extensions take the heat. The extensions will take the brunt of your heat styling while protecting your natural hair underneath. Extensions can also allow you to get past that awkward growing-out phase.

3. Pump up the volume!

Have you always suffered with thin hair that falls flat? Extensions can give you the thickness you have always desired. Achieve the style you want with more volume!
