How to Care for your Hair Extensions

October 05, 2017

Hair Extensions aren’t the hardest things to upkeep if you know the proper ways to care for them! Even if you own Human Hair extensions, they don’t function completely like real hair. Extensions don’t get the benefits of natural oils our scalp produces to keep our hair moisturized, so we have to keep that in mind when caring for our extensions. It is best not to wash them too often because that dries out the hair even more, we suggest periodically using hydration conditioning masks on the hair to lock in that moisture. You can get up to about 20 wears before you actually have to wash your extensions.

To extend the life of your extensions as long as possible, try not to shower, swim, or sleep in your pieces. Keep tangles out of the hair by constantly and carefully brushing through them, even when you are wearing them. When it comes to products such as shampoos and conditioners, stay away from anything with alcohol in it which will strip the hair of any moisture it has. Also, with hairspray, don’t get anything too powerful or too heavy because it will leave a product residue and force you to wash them prematurely! We suggest purchasing products specifically made for that type of hair, such as the BeautiMark products on our website! You can get an entire care kit for Human Hair or Synthetic, and they won't harm or ruin your hair! 

Once you are done rocking your gorgeous long look, you need to properly store your extensions. We suggest using the Extension Storage Bag & Hanger by Hairdo which is the perfect storage to protect the hair!

Before putting them in the bag, make sure they are brushed and tangle-free. Tie them with a hair tie or ribbon and carefully lay them inside. You can also use this bag to carry them wherever you go, it is perfect for traveling! By keeping them stored properly, it protects them from any damage and keeps them untangled for the next time you need to wear them!
