Make your Human Hair Extension Last

Proper care and regular maintenance will keep your clip-in, Indian or virgin hair extensions in excellent condition for a long time. It only takes a few easy and sensible steps to get the most out of your hair extensions.

The best way to enjoy the full life of your hair extension is to take good care of it. Here are a few tips to help you care for and get the most from your hair extensions.

Tender Loving Care

Do be gentle. You need to comb and brush your extensions at least once a day, but do so with care. Start from the bottom and slowly work your way to the top using downward strokes. Vigorous brushing can cause breakage and can shorten the life of your hair extensions.

Extensions that are adequately hydrated will last longer as they are less prone to breakage. They also retain their healthy, natural shine over time. Deep condition at least once a week; find a product that works for you and use it regularly. The extra conditioning will give your hair extension extra oomph and extend its life.

Before heading outdoors, protect your hair extension by using a protective styling product. Heat, wind, dust and other polluting chemicals are unfortunately abundant in the environment. These can damage hair extensions or cause them to get tangled and become difficult to maintain. Using a scarf or wearing a hat when outdoors also helps protect your hair extensions from pollutants and preserve its luster.

If you must use a blow dryer or a curling iron (or any other heating apparatus) to style your hair, do use a heat protectant. Your hair extensions can be damaged by constant exposure to a high heat source.

Above all, love and enjoy your hair extensions! Have fun with them, dress them up or down, style them wild or chic or classy – if you give them the tender loving care they need, your human hair extensions will be with you through many months of adventure and fun.
