Hey there! So, you've jumped in and invested in some hair extensions and you want to make sure they stay looking fresh and clean? Want to keep them looking clean and healthy? No problem! Follow these tips to get the most out of your hair extensions
- Start by combing through your extensions with a wide-tooth comb to remove any tangles or knots. This will make it easier to wash and prevent any damage to the hair.
- Wet hair and add a small amount of sulfate-free shampoo. Avoid using very hot water, as this can cause the hair to become dry and brittle.
- Gently massage your hair at the root, working the shampoo into the roots. Be sure to avoid rubbing or scrubbing the hair, as this can cause tangles and damage.
- Once the hair is thoroughly washed, rinse it thoroughly with cool water to remove all of the shampoo.
- To condition the hair, apply a small amount of conditioner and comb it through the hair. Leave the conditioner in for a few minutes before rinsing it out with cool water. If you have tape extensions, avoid adding conditioner to the root or the tape bonds.
- After washing and conditioning, gently squeeze the excess water out of the hair and pat it dry with a towel, even better, use a soft t-shirt. Avoid wringing or twisting the hair, as this can cause damage.
- Add a hair oil or leave-in treatment. Avoid using high heat to dry them, as this can cause the hair to become dry and brittle.
- Comb out the hair and remember to never sleep with wet hair
And that's it! Just a few simple steps to keep your hair extensions looking clean and healthy. Happy washing!
