Yesterday, I got hair extensions for the first time. I’ve never had long hair before getting extensions. Any tips for someone who is pleased but surprised by the long-haired stranger that I see looking back at me in the mirror?

Having long hair is a bit like owning a new puppy. You have to be attentive to your new, “pet project” or everything will turn messy before you know it. Long hair obviously takes more effort to manage than short hair. You simply have to adjust your normal routine and make time for your hair.
For best results, shampoo more often, condition with high-quality products after shampooing, condition regularly in between shampoos, and use a special extension brush to gently comb, comb, comb. Hair extensions require steady maintenance and upkeep but the results are fabulous.
