Extensions Care

WASHING After your extensions have been installed, you'll want to wait at least 48 hours to wash your hair. After 48 hours, you'll want to wash your hair no more than twice a week to retain moisture and increase your hold time. You'll also want to wash your hair immediately after exposure to salt or chlorine. The best option is to wear a swim cap to avoid exposure to these things while swimming. When washing, try to avoid your wefts. Gently work the shampoo into your scalp while avoiding the tape, then work the shampoo from the middle of your hair to the ends. When conditioning, skip the scalp and condition only below your tape.

Extensions Care


  1. Begin by brushing your hair extensions thoroughly to remove any tangles or knots. Use a hair extension brush or a wide-toothed comb to gently detangle your hair, starting at the bottom and working your way up to the roots.
  2. Next, apply a heat protectant spray to the hair to protect it from heat damage
  3. Using a hair dryer on a low heat setting, begin drying your hair extensions, starting at the roots and working your way down to the ends. Avoid using high heat settings, as this can cause the hair to become dry and brittle.
  4. Once the hair is mostly dry, use a round brush to create volume and curl in the hair. Hold the hair dryer close to the brush as you work to ensure that the hair dries quickly and evenly.
  5. Once the hair is completely dry, use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to gently style the hair as desired.
  6. By following these steps, you can blow dry your hair extensions and keep them looking soft, shiny, and healthy. Remember to use a heat protectant spray and avoid using high heat settings to protect the hair from damage.

Extensions CareBrushing Make sure your hair is completely dry before brushing your extensions. Your hair is weakest when wet. That means pulling a brush or comb through it does the most damage when it's wet. I suggest using a wide toothed comb instead of a brush. Hold your hair just under the tape to ensure you're not pulling on the tape itself. Then, start brushing at the bottom and work your way up.

Protecting Remember, your extensions can't rejuvenate themselves like your hair so you'll need to protect them. When swimming, wear a cap. When exercising, wear a high ponytail to protect the hair from sweat and oils. When sleeping, wear a low, loose braid or ponytail to prevent excess movement and friction. When your extensions are not installed, store them correctly by gently washing, air drying, and detangling them. Then, store them flat in an air-tight container in which they're not bent or crumpled.

Extensions CareMaintaining No extensions can stay in forever. As your hair grows, the extension stays in the same place on the hair strands and moves further from your scalp. By the time your extensions have been in for six weeks, the tape starts to break down, making it harder to remove. If you're thinking leaving your extensions in longer will save you money or time at the salon you're wrong. It will most likely end up being much more expensive because of the extra time and product it will take to remove the extensions. Visit your stylist every six weeks to get your extensions moved up or removed.
