  • How to Properly Take Care of Your Hair Extensions

    Weve consulted with experts at top expert to inform us

    on the dos and donts when it comes to preserving

    these hairdo additions.

  • Why is it important to take care of your extensions?

    Hair extensions are wonderful. You can add length to

    your hair or a beautiful streak of color. They can cover a

    bad cut or color and allow you to tie short hair in a

    ponytail. With all the glorious things they can do, can

    you return the favor and take good care of your

    extensions? Proper care of extensions ensures they'll be

    around for a while.

  • Take your extensions out before going to bed

    Unlike sewn-in extensions, clip-

    in extensions must be removed

    before you go to bed. The tiny

    combs can dig into your scalp

    while you sleep, which can be

    painful. They also tend to be

    more fragile than sewn-in

    extensions.

  • Wash Your Extensions Once a Month using a gentle shampoo

    Place the extensions in a tub or

    sink, and dampen them with

    lukewarm water. If you can, use

    a handheld shower head. Apply a

    small amount of shampoo and

    gently massage the fibers. Rinse

    the lather out, and repeat with

    the conditioner.

  • Hang the extensions up to dry don't brush them while they are wet

    Pat them dry with a soft towel

    first, then clip them to a pants

    hanger. Place the hanger in your

    shower, or in a well-ventilated

    area. Wait until the extensions

    are dry before you brush or style

    them. If you brush them while

    they are wet, the fibers will frizz.

  • Comb extensions using a wide-toothed comb

    Make sure that the extensions

    are dry. Start combing them

    from the ends first, and work

    your way to the top. Never

    comb straight down from the

    top to the ends.

  • Take your extensions out before going to bed

    When your extensions are dry, comb a little bit of leave-in

    conditioner evenly. Don't overdo it because they'll become greasy

    easier than your natural locks.

  • Take care when heat styling your extensions

    It is best to avoid heat styling,

    such as straightening or curling,

    all together, especially on

    synthetic extensions. If you must

    heat style them, be sure to use a

    heat protecting spray, and a

    lower temperature.

  • Only wear extensions in a ponytail if they were made to be worn that way.

    Some extensions will fall apart

    in a ponytail. Read the labeling

    when buying new extensions to

    see if you can use them in a

    ponytail. If it doesn't say

    whether or not you can, it is

    best to be on the safe side and

    do not put them in a ponytail.

  • Avoid using heat styling on your hair, such as straightening or curling.

    must heat style your hair, use a

    heat protecting spray and a

    medium to low temperature.

    Don't tie your hair back just

    after you get the extensions.

    Wait a few days.
