How to Store your Bebonias
Posted on November 09 2020
Obviously we’re biased, but if we may say so ourselves: Curly hair extensions are a complete game changer. Still if you’re new to extensions, we know that it can feel like there’s a lot to learn. People often have questions about how to put hair extensions in (we’ve got you covered there!), and how best to incorporate this amazing accessory into an everyday look.
An equally important topic is taking care of and storing hair extensions. You want your extensions to stay looking gorgeous for as long as possible. Today we’re diving into the nitty gritty of how long hair extensions last, how to store your hair extensions, and how to take care of your hair extensions.
We’ve broken it up into a list of dos and don’ts so that you can live your best life with long lasting extensions.
Do: Lay them flat
When you’re finished styling your Bebonias, it’s important to lay your set out to dry on a flat surface, ideally on a microfiber towel, and let them dry overnight.
Do: Store your extensions in silk or satin:
You want to make sure that your set is taken care of as well as your natural hair. You don’t put your curls on a cotton pillowcase, because hello it zaps moisture. You rest your head every night on silk or satin, because it preserves hydration and doesn’t cause friction and frizz. Your extensions deserve the same kind of luxury. We’re partial to our very own Bebonia Curl Bag as a solution for this. The perfect way to store your Bebonias, it’s small, cute, lightweight, satin lined, and the best way to travel and store your extensions. But you can also store your extensions in a spare satin pillowcase.
Do: Gently, neatly organize your extensions:
Why? Simply put, you don’t want them to tangle. Because Bebonia extensions are made from Remy human hair, they can tangle just as easily as our normal hair. Place them gently, stacked and organized. You can also hang them on a hanger in your house (hook, pants hanger, etc).
Don’t: Let them tangle
Avoid behaviors that can lead to tangling, such as teasing your hair, swimming with extensions in, or sleeping with extensions in. If you do find yourself with a bit of a tangle problem, a deep conditioner and a Denman detangling brush or wide tooth comb can help rescue you.
Don’t: Put them in high humidity or store them wet:
Your extensions will frizz up just as much as your curls and can even grow bacteria or mold in storage if they’re wet, so make sure your Bebonias are being stored in a cool, dry place.
Don’t: Let them get squished:
Your Bebonia extensions are delicate, and crushing them with improper storage will result in flattened curls which means you’ll have to re-style them every single time.
