Drying your hair extensions is just as important as washing them, if not more. This crucial aftercare step should be carried out after every wash to ensure that your extensions remain soft and luscious for a long period. However, different types of extensions respond better to different drying techniques. Before you adopt a hair extension drying method, it’s crucial to understand the nature of your extensions and the effect of heat and chemicals on their bonding.  

In this blog, we’ll discuss the right way to dry micro-ring hair extensions.

Drying Micro-Ring Hair Extensions

Unlike other hair extension types, micro-ring extensions aren’t sensitive to heat as they’re completely glue-free. This means that people with micro-bead hair extensions have the freedom to choose between air drying and blow drying their hair. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to carry out each method

Air Drying:

Detangling is the first and the most crucial step to drying your hair. Start by combing your hair with a wide-toothed comb or fluff brush. Ensure that all the tangles are removed by running your fingers through your hair.

This will also help remove any broken or loose hair that may be present at the root of your extensions. Once your hair is completely tangle-free, spray high-quality protein spray or rub in a few drops of Argan oil to condition it, and you’re good to go!

At-home Blow Dry:

These sections can be anywhere from an inch or two inches thick, depending on the volume and length of your hair. Hold the section you’re working on and clip the rest away.

Next, run your blow-drier from the roots down with the help of a round brush. The brush will help add more volume to your hair and maintaining a steady downwards motion will keep the hair smooth. Repeat the same process for the remaining sections.

Apply some Argan oil or protein spray in the end for smoother hair.
