How well you care for your hair extensions will determine how long they last. Hair extensions are 100% human hair but it does not receive the natural oils your scalp produces. This is because it doesn’t draw oils and nutrients from your skin while still having to go through the harmful conditions such as air conditioning, fumes, sun and more.
Gently shampoo your hair extension and mix shampoo and conditioner (half and half).
Do not use any sort of hair care products except sulfate-free and alcohol-free products.
Stroke downwards from weft base (which is the top of the hair extension) to the end.
Do not forget to remove any tangles before shampooing.
Once clean, rinse thoroughly under lukewarm running water till the water runs absolutely clear.
Do not run directly use shampoo into the hair extension.
While drying, lay the hair extensions out on a towel to dry. You can also blow dry on the lowest setting of heat. However, remember to treat them as you would your own hair, which means leaving them to air dry until they are around 80% dry and then drying with a hairdryer.
Do not stroke end to base.
It is not necessary to wash your extensions after every use, wash only when the hair extensions seem to look dry and lifeless. Too frequent washing reduces life of the hair extension.
Do not twist, scrub or rub the hair.
Gently remove tangles with your fingers, start at the bottom and work your way up. You may apply a spray on conditioner if needed.
Do not leave any shampoo in the hair.
Do not ever use anti-dandruff products on the human hair extensions.
