How to care human hair extension

Recommended Posts

Make a bath for your hair extensions:

Puta teaspoon of moisturizing shampoo in about a half cup of lukewarm water andmix them together. When you’re finished mixing, fill your sink with warm waterand pour in the diluted shampoo.

Make sure to usesulfate-free shampoo.


1. Add your hair extensions:

Slowly dip yourextensions into the water. Comb through your extensions a few times beforesubmerging them to get rid of any tangles. Let them soak for about ten minutes.[2]

  • When detangling yourextensions. Comb down from the end, then from the mid-length and finally allthe way down from the roots.
  • Don’t swirl yourextensions in the water to get them clean. You’ll only cause tangles to form.
  • Try your best to keepthe top weft and the clips dry. The top wefts of your extensions can swellcausing them to look uneven and the clips may rust.


2. Rinse your extensions:

Gently take your extensions out of the sinkand rinse them under the running faucet. Make sure the running water is cold sothat it locks moisture in the extensions. Wring out any excess water and spreadthe extensions out flat on top of a fresh towel.



3.  Condition the extensions:

Apply some conditionerdirectly to your extensions. Comb the conditioner into them. Make sure to combin the conditioner from the top weft of each extension down. Place theextensions back on the towel and fold it over. Let them sit for about an hour.

  • Make sure to only combthe hair in one direction at a time or it could lose its shape (hair extension).
  • Never comb extensionsthat are soaking wet or they will become tangled.


4.  Dr   dry your extensions:

Rinse the conditioner out ofthe hair. Apply a separate leave-in conditioner. Lay your extensions flat ontoa new, dry towel and fold it over. Leave them to dry naturally overnight.

  •  When your extensionsare dry, comb through them one more time to straighten them out.


5. Washyour clip in extensions at least once every six weeks:

Becauseyou don’t wear your clip in hair extension to bed, you don’t need to wash themas often as permanent ones. However, if you wear them all the time, you mighthave to wash them a bit more.

6. Treat them like your natural hair:

 If your extensions aresewn, microlinked, or taped in, you can wash them along with your natural hairin the shower. Be gentle, though, so that you don’t loosen your extensions. Ifyou’re too rough with them, they won’t last as long.

  • Be sure to use amoisturizing formula shampoo. The more that a shampoo moisturizes, the betterit will be for your hair.
  • It is not a good ideato wash extensions that are glued or clipped in along with your natural hair.These should be removed and treated separately (hair extension).

    • I want to know what are some of your biggest frustrations with your hair! This could be styling issues, texture issues, products that aren't working, I want to hear anything and everything! 
    • Hey! Honestly, I think most people's hair issues come down to the products they are using. Almost all hair products out there are only able to coat the hair strand, instead of penetrate the hair strand and heal the hair from the inside out. About 6 months ago I switched all of my hair products over to an all-natural luxury hair care line, and my hair has never been healthier! These products have also enhanced my natural texture (which used to be non-existent, but now I can actually scrunch my hair!), and so I think they would really help define your natural waves to make your hair look nicer the way it is naturally! Feel free to reach out if you want to hear more  
    • Hey!  So I discovered a new all-natural luxury hair care line that I started using about 6 months ago, and it has seriously made my hair so healthy. I have fine hair too, and it is so nice to finally have a conditioner that keeps my hair so moisturized and shiny without weighing it down and making it look greasy. I would love to share more about these products with you! If not, no worries  
    • Hi!  I would agree with what someone said about adding some texture to make your hair fuller. You could try sleeping in braids at night to add a little texture without heat! I would also say that the products you are using are going to make a big difference. Personally, I switched all of my hair products to a new all natural luxury hair care line, and I can truly say that my hair has never been better. My hair is thicker, so shiny, so healthy, and growing faster than ever! I would absolutely love to share these products with you and some testimonials about how these products have helped other women with thinning hair! Feel free to reach out I would love to chat  
    • Hey girl! I used to seriously struggle with split ends. I have really fine/straight hair, and split ends are really noticeable. Practically, I would say try to only use heat on your hair once a week, and if you are using heat make sure to put on a heat protectant first!  About 6 months ago I switched ALL of my hair products over to a new all natural luxury hair care line, and let me tell you, my hair is the best it has ever been. One of my favorite products is actually called a "split-end mender" and it literally just makes the split ends go back together and leaves your hair so smooth! It's obviously not a quick fix (because who would trust that anyway), but my hair is so hydrated, healthy, shiny, and it is growing faster than ever. The products you are putting on your hair make a HUGE difference. Let me know if you want to hear more
