Taking care of hair extensions

Taking care of hair extensions is important to ensure they last a long time and look good. Here are some general tips on how to take care of hair extensions:

1. Washing:

- Use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.

- Wash your hair extensions when you need to.

- Be gentle when washing to avoid tangling.

- Avoid washing your hair upside down to prevent tangling.

2. Drying:

- Gently squeeze out excess water with a towel after washing.

- Avoid rubbing the hair vigorously.

- make sure the connection is dry to avoid slippage and becoming water logged.

- If using a blow dryer, use a low heat setting to prevent damage.

3. Brushing:

  • Don't brush your hair when it's wet

  • Use a loop brush or a wide-tooth comb to detangle hair extensions.

- Start brushing from the bottom and work your way up to prevent pulling and breakage.

- Be gentle and patient when brushing.

4. Styling:

- Use heat styling tools on a low heat setting to prevent damage.

- Use heat protectant products before using hot tools.

- Avoid sleeping with wet hair extensions to prevent tangling.

5. Sleeping:

- Braid your hair or tie it in a loose ponytail before going to bed to prevent tangling.

- Consider using a silk or satin pillowcase to reduce friction.

6. Maintenance:

- Visit your stylist regularly for maintenance and adjustments. 3 months is typical

- Trim the ends of the extensions every 6-8 weeks to prevent split ends.

7. Avoid:

- Avoid using products containing alcohol as it can dry out the hair. And loosen the bond.
