No wonder, I have breakage taking extensions out. It is not as bad as it sounds. I am usually very careful. The breakage is minimal but it still exists. My goal is to eradicate breakage completely when taking extensions out. After all, the purpose of installing extensions in the first place is to protect my hair.
So,now that I have expressed my reasons for a new regimen, here it goes:
Cleansing: I clean my scalp three times a week after doing my 6 mile run and working out. I use Diluted Apple Cider vinegar with a few drops of Tea Tree oil to clean my scalp. I usually use a cotton pad for this process. This really gets the dirt off my scalp.
Moisturizing: I spritz my twists with a mix of Aloe vera juice, Shea moisture Yucca and Aloe Volumizing conditioner ( I use it for the protein content, which is strengthening), and Tea Tree oil.
Sealing: Then I seal with a mix of Castor and Coconut oil. I also massage my scalp with the same oil mix.
That is it! I will be doing this for the next three weeks since I have gotten one week in already.
This is an experiment to determine what regimen is best for me when wearing extensions. I will do an updated post on the outcome.
