So you finally get your hands on those new hair extensions, congratulations! You just leveled up your hair game. Now, we’re going to tell you how to keep your new hair extensions shiny, clean, and lush, no matter the odds.

 

Washing your hair

 

  • Special shampoo for hair extensions

Getting a special shampoo for hair extensions is the first thing you should do. You should be looking for either a 2-in-1 shampoo, or an additional conditioner to go with your hair extensions shampoo. Your new hair extensions have no way to replenish their moisture the way your natural hair does, and the oils that keep your natural hair won’t reach your hair extensions, so make sure to keep a conditioner handy to achieve that healthy look and avoid unnecessary damage.

 

 

  • Preparing your hair extensions

First, make sure to close all of the clips to prevent your hair from snagging. Also, you need to make sure to untangle the hair while loosening any knots, gently combing your hair extensions.

 

 

  • Rinse and apply shampoo

Now, once you have the shampoo you’re ready to wash your new extensions. Avoid using hot water to wash them, still you don’t want to go too cold or too hot, lukewarm water is your safest bet.

 

Hold the top of the wefts with one hand and use your other hand to wet your hair extensions, then apply shampoo gently. Soak until and the squeeze the excess water from your extensions. If you have bought a standalone conditioner massage to the ends of your extensions and up towards the top of the wefts. Let it sit for 5 to 15 minutes. Rinse your extensions once again and squeeze the water out.

 

Use a towel to remove any excess water. Hang your extensions in a place where they can dry.
