If you wear hair extensions, you know how they enhance your look and confidence. To maintain their great appearance, extensions need the right care and handling. Follow these four tips to keep the compliments flowing as easily as your locks between hair salon visits. 

4 Tips for Maintaining Your Hair Extensions

1. Protect From Harsh Products

Read hair care product labels carefully. Using products with the wrong ingredients can cause damage and shorten the life of your extensions. Avoid items including alcohol denat (denatured alcohol), ethanol, SD alcohol 40, propanol, and sodium lauryl sulfate.

2. Wash Gently Yet Thoroughly

extensionsWash your hair once or twice a week with professional sulfate free products. Shampoo thoroughly yet gently and keep your head up to protect the bonds, which is easier to do in the shower. Squeezing excess water out rather than rubbing the hair helps prevent tangling and frizzing.

3. Brush and Comb Wisely

Brush hair gently from the bottom up.  Avoid styling with heat tools, such as hot combs and curling irons, which can dry the hair. To avoid frizz, don’t brush your hair while it’s completely wet.

4. Braid Before Bed

Avoid an early trip to the hair salon by taking thoughtful overnight care of your extensions. You’ll have fewer problems with knots if you braid your hair before going to bed – as long as your hair is dry.
