How to Heat Style With Extensions

Heat styling hair extensions can be tricky.

Keep your investment looking good for as long as it can. Not only will heat styling your hair extensions properly make for better hair days, these tips will save you money down the line!

Find out how our Belisa By Lunata cordless hair tools and styling accessories can help you prolong the life of your hair extensions!

Can Your Extensions Even Be Heat Styled?

It’s helpful to know what your hair extensions are made of. Human hair extensions will be able to be heat styled. On the other hand, it’s a good idea to keep your synthetic hair extensions far away from your heat tools.

Human hair extensions are able to be heat styled, but may need extra care. Our Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip and Belisa Cordless Curling Wand are made with titanium barrels and can retain heat for long-lasting, evenly heated curls! Avoid heat styling your hair extensions too often to keep them in good condition!

How To Heat Style Hair

Keep hair tangle-free with the Belisa Paddle Brush. Once you’ve brushed through any snags and tangles, section your hair with the Belisa Alligator Clips. The set of four will work for many different lengths and can accommodate large sections of hair.

Hair protectant should be used even if you’re just styling your own hair. On hair extensions, it’s even more important to protect your investment. Spray heat protectant on sections before you start heat styling, making sure to apply evenly and coat the whole section.

If you’re not sure how heat will effect your extensions, start with a slightly cooler setting. Luckily, the Belisa By Lunata Cordless Flat Iron, Belisa By Lunata Cordless Curling Iron With Clip and Belisa By Lunata Cordless Curling Wand can heat your hair starting at 200ºF. While you might not need to go that low, a slightly lower setting 50º lower than your normal setting is a good starting point!

Detangle your hair and spray heat protectant on sections as you heat style your hair. Avoid getting too close to the tape. Keep your Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip or Belisa Cordless Curling Wand away from where they’re placed and style your hair farther downwards.

These temporary hair extensions may have silicone wefts or clip-in styles. Like with tape-in hair extensions, it’s best to keep your Belisa Cordless Curling Iron With Clip or Belisa Cordless Curling Wand away from the start of your hair extensions.  

Detangle with the Belisa Wide Tooth Comb or the Belisa Paddle Brush before styling. Don’t heat style hair without using a heat protectant.

And if your hair is looking dry or damaged, take a few drops of hair serum and spread it through your hair extensions. Massage and focus on the lower portions of your hair, and make it a weekly treatment!
