STEPS: Wash And Take Care Of Your Hair Extension


July. 13, 2020

Establish a regular cleaning schedule for your wefts. Choose a time during the week or month to give your clip-in extensions a little extra TLC, especially if you wear them often. Try to wash your synthetic extensions around once a week, if possible.
Tie your extensions and store them in the box they came in. Take a regular hair tie and twist it around the base of the hair extension, about 1 to 2 in (2.5 to 5.1 cm) from the weft and clip. Carefully slide your extensions into the box they came in so they don’t get frizzy and tangled. 
Brush your extensions on a regular basis. Use a wide-tooth comb, soft bristle brush, or wire brush to gently work away any tangles or snares in the hair. Start brushing along the bottom 3 to 4 in (7.6 to 10.2 cm) of the extension, then slowly work your way up. Always brush in a downwards direction so your hair looks really smooth and silky.
Spray your natural hair wefts with heat-protectant spray before styling. Spritz the product all over the surface of the weft, or at least the areas you plan on curling or straightening. This spray can help make your extensions last longer, especially if you wear them a lot.
Invest in wig-specific brushes, combs, and shampoos. Check online or visit your local beauty supply shop for specialty combs and shampoos for your extensions. Try to stock up on wig-specific products, especially if you wear extensions fairly often.
