Hair extensions are a great way to change up your look or lengthen your hair. Human hair extensions blend in with your hair for a natural look that can be styled the same as real hair. Proper care and maintenance of your hair extensions will keep them looking great!
Remember to be gentle with your hair extensions. Brushing through your hair extensions too roughly can cause damage or the hair to fall out. Brush hair extensions often. Hair extensions can easily become tangled and knotted. Brush your hair three to four times a day to keep hair tangle-free. Be sure to brush out all tangles before and after washing.
Avoid washing hair extensions too often. Washing hair too often will dry out the hair and make it more prone to damage from heat styling. Hair extensions do not receive the same nourishing oils from your scalp that the rest of your hair receives. Washing hair every 2 to 3 days is recommended.
Keep hair extensions hydrated by using a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
Lather hair gently and work shampoo down the hair. Be sure to rinse the hair out extra well.
Using a deep conditioner every few weeks is also recommended.
A heat protectant or serum should always be used on hair extensions before using any type of heat-styling tools. This will help minimize frizz and breakage.
Styling tools including flat irons and curling irons can be used on human hair extensions in the same way that they are used on real human hair.
Avoid styling products that contain alcohol.
Braid hair into a loose braid before going to sleep or before any physical activity to prevent matting and tangling.
Do not sleep on wet hair. Air dry or dry using a blow dryer on low heat before bed.
Remember, hair extensions are a high maintenance product and you should expect to spend 20-30 minutes a day to care for and style your hair.
Extensions may be uncomfortable to sleep on the first few nights.
Your scalp may be slightly itchy the first few days after getting hair extensions.
100% human hair extensions are a great option for women who want fuller, longer hair. Just be sure to properly care for your extensions and they will stay looking healthy and beautiful!
