If you are anything like me, you have not perfected the art of storing your hair extensions and wigs. I try to always place my wigs on a Styrofoam head, but sometimes I must admit I get a bit lazy. I keep my hair stored in ziplock bags in a large plastic bin. Not the greatest system!
Later on when I reach for hair I’ve worn in the past and pull it out, it is tangled, a bit matted and basically kind of old looking. Sound familiar? Well do not throw that hair away, there is a way to revive it close to its original state! Giving your hair extensions or wigs a bleach bath will immediately give it new life, melting the tangles away, smoothing and giving renewed shine.
When hair is tangled, it is usually because of mis-aligned or rough cuticles. Essentially the bleach bath works by actually melting the top cuticle layer off thereby reducing tangles. This technique will of course not be necessary for good quality hair extensions but works well to give lesser quality extensions a new lease of life.
Before you start gather the following supplies:
Hang the hair using clothespins and hangers and allow it to air dry. You should see a huge difference in the smoothness, shine and manageability of your hair. You can do this with any quality of hair but virgin hair responds best. However the beauty of investing in quality hair extensions is that rarely will the need even arise to do a bleach bath. Good luck!
