Tips to prevent hair extension discoloration

Summer is upon us and that means a lot of fun in the sun - but unfortunately hair extensions are not like our natural hair and can discolor easily from chlorine and sunscreen. Blonde extensions are highly porous, resulting in possible damage along with red and green tones from chemicals. You will need to give your hair extra attention and care during the summer months to avoid these unfriendly situations. Extensions do not have the nutrients or oils to act as a protectant, therefore we do NOT recommend swimming with your extensions. The risks include hair turning a pink or orange color from sunscreen and a green color from chlorine. Avobenzone and Octocrylene are top ingredients in a lot of SPF which creates a chemical reaction, resulting in pink/orange hair. Jumping in a pool with your luxury hair can also be a recipe for disaster as the chemicals and chlorine in the pool can turn your extensions into a very unpleasant green color.  If you choose to swim in salt water or a chlorinated pool or use a SPF with the ingredients mentioned above resulting in your extensions becoming damaged or discolored COCO MARIE HAIR company is not responsible for refunds or replacements of any kind. 
Please always use high quality shampoo and conditioner such as Kerastase. Make sure your hair is wet, leave in conditioner is applied and hair is in a bun before going to the pool or ocean. If hair comes in contact with chlorine rinse immediately with fresh water. Your hair is your best accessory - treat them as such and take care of your luscious locks!!!!
