The Extension Type Matters
Before you decide to straighten your curly extensions, you should think about the extension type that you have.
Synthetic hair cannot withstand heat and cannot be manipulated much. When it comes to human hair, you’ll need to make sure that you choose the right extensions.
The quality of the extensions is essential because it will determine whether your curly extensions will be able to revert after experiencing heat. Some companies have curly extensions that return with just water. Other companies have extensions that require water and some product.
You’ll want to choose something that will return quickly and without much hassle. Keep in mind that the kind of curly hair you purchase matters. Why? Well, not all curly hair will revert as easily. For example, afro kinky hair tends to have a frizzy curly texture.
This means that it won’t look exactly like how it did when you initially purchased it. Other styles such as Indian curly and Brazilian curly won’t have any issues going back to a curly state. These textures usually only need water, and they’ll coil back into the state you initially bought it.
Make sure you do your proper research when choosing curly extensions. When you straighten them, you don’t want to risk damaging them, especially if you’re going to go back to having a curly style eventually.
