Tips for Hair Extension Care

Tips to Make Your Extensions Last!

Hair extensions are great to use, especially when you take care of them.

When I first started wearing extensions, I didn’t realize the maintenance that was required to keep them together. Instead, I treated my extensions like they were my real hair. Anyone that wears extensions knows you can’t do that! If you want your hair extensions to stand out, you’ll need to ensure that you take care of your hair extensions.

Each type of hair extension requires different attention. For example, you don’t want to care for human hair extensions, the same way you care for synthetic extensions.

There are some essential tips you need to know to ensure that you don’t ruin your extensions and lose the investment you put into them! Caring for hair extensions isn’t a tough task — let us tell you why!

When Caring For Hair Extensions

There are a lot of tips out there for those looking to care for their hair extensions.

However, we’re only going to get into about three different tips. These tips are cardinal rules that you should follow to keep your hair extensions clean and freshly styled. Not only will these tips help you take care of your hair extensions, but they will also increase the longevity of your hair extensions.

Let’s get into it.

Identify Your Hair Extension Type

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when it comes to hair extensions is that they don’t know which type of hair extension they are using. It’s important to know which kind of hair extensions you are wearing so that you can adequately take care of it.

As mentioned before, if you’re wearing synthetic extensions, you don’t want to treat them like human hair extensions and vice versa. Make sure you check to see where your hair comes from and what material it’s made out of.

Lightly Cleanse Every So Often

Depending on the type of hair extensions you have, you’ll need to cleanse them lightly. Whenever I wear hair extensions, I make sure to wash them every two weeks gently.

When it comes to cleansing, you don’t want to use shampoo, but a light conditioner that will help you loosen up tangles.

A light conditioner won’t strip your hair extensions of their necessary shine! If you notice that your hair is difficult to brush through, try using a conditioner to soften the hair and loosen those tangled ends.

Don’t Wear Them Too Long

One of the most important rules of hair extensions is not to wear them too long. Some extensions can be used for up to a year, but that doesn’t mean you should wear them for over a year.

You can take them out, cleanse them and reinstall them. The important thing is that you take them out and give them a break.

The longer you wear the extensions, the more difficult it is to remove build-up and clean the extensions, so they are not run down, dirty and dry.

Make Sure to Remember

Taking care of hair extensions don’t have to be difficult. It’s quite simple to keep your hair extensions looking clean, fresh and shiny.

Follow these tips and watch how the nature of your hair extensions change!

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
