Why can't I sleep with wet hair extensions?

Sleeping in wet hair extensions can be a tricky situation. It is important to understand why this can be a problem and how to avoid it.

Wet hair extensions can be a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi, which can lead to scalp irritation, infection, and even hair loss.

Additionally, wet hair extensions can be heavy and uncomfortable to sleep in, and can cause breakage and tangles.

In order to prevent these issues, it is important to make sure that your hair extensions are completely dry before going to bed. If you have just washed your hair, it is best to let it air dry or use a blow dryer on a low heat setting. Don't forget to use a thermal protectant before any type of thermal styling.

Using a silk or satin pillowcase can help prevent friction and breakage. Taking these steps can help ensure that your hair extensions stay healthy and last as long as possible.

Note from Christina: A little tough love over here... or as some would say ... straight forward no BS aftercare.

Going to bed with wet hair will cause matting and tangling to your hair and the hair extensions. A marriage will happen between the two forces! This will cause damage in more than one way. It will also minamize the life of your hair extensions.
