If you’re like most people, you probably love your hair extensions! They make your hair look incredible, and they can really boost your confidence. But if you want to keep your extensions looking good for as long as possible, you need to take care of them properly.

Failure to care for your hair extensions can result in damage, tangling, and shedding. So if you want to keep your extensions looking their best, keep reading! Learn all the tips and tricks for taking care of your hair extensions, and you’ll be able to enjoy them for many months to come.

Different Types of Hair Extensions

Before we dive into the specifics of hair extension care, it’s important to note that there are different types of hair extensions. The type of extension you have will dictate how you need to care for it.

The most common types of hair extensions are human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions. Human hair extensions are made from, you guessed it, human hair! This type of extension is usually more expensive, but it also looks and feels more natural. Synthetic extensions are made from different materials, like plastic or nylon. They’re usually less expensive than human hair extensions, but they don’t look as natural.

  • Classic Hair Extensions: Also known as bonded hair extensions are attached to your natural hair with glue or a bonding agent. This type of extension is usually made from human hair, and it can last anywhere from four to eight weeks.
  • Clip in Hair Extensions: Clip in hair extensions are a popular temporary option. They’re easy to put in and take out and don’t damage your natural hair. Clip in extensions are usually made from human or synthetic hair.
  • Tape in Extensions: Tape in extensions are one of the most popular types of hair extensions on the market. They are made with real human hair and can be styled just like your own natural hair. Tape in extensions can last up to six weeks with proper care.
  • Ponytail extensions: As the name suggests, ponytail extensions are attached to your hair in a ponytail. They’re usually made from human hair and can be worn for a night out or special event.

Now that you know a little bit more about the different types of hair extensions, it’s time to learn how to take care of them. Proper care will extend the life of your extensions and keep them looking their best. Here are some tips for taking care of your hair extensions:

Tip #1: Give Extensions TLC

Your hair extensions deserve some TLC! Be gentle with them when you brush and style your hair, and avoid using any harsh chemicals or heat styling tools. You may notice that your extensions become dry and brittle over time. To combat this, use a good quality conditioner and/or mask on your extensions every week or two. Even the best hair extensions can’t withstand too much abuse. So if you want them to last, take it easy on the styling and give them some extra love and care. Your hair will thank you for it!

Tip #2: Keep Them Clean

Just like your own hair, your hair extensions need to be kept clean. Shampoo and condition them regularly to prevent build-up from damaging your extensions. Be sure to use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to avoid stripping the natural oils from your hair.

If you’re using tape-in extensions, you’ll need to be especially careful when shampooing. Gently massage the shampoo into your scalp, being careful not to pull on the tapes. Once you’ve rinsed out the shampoo, follow up with conditioner. Again, take care not to pull on the tapes while you’re conditioning your hair. Clip in extensions are a bit easier to care for. Simply remove them before shampooing and conditioning your hair, then brush them out and clip them back in when you’re done.

Tip #3: Use The Right Products

Wearing extensions doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite hair products! Just be sure to use products that are safe for extensions. Look for sulfate and alcohol-free products, as these can strip the natural oils from your hair and cause damage.

You should also avoid using any oil-based products on your extensions, as this can cause the hair to become greasy and matted. If you need to use a product that contains oil, apply it sparingly to the ends of your hair only.

Tip #4: Don’t Sleep on Them

When you sleep, your hair tends to get tangled and matted. This is especially true if you have long hair extensions. To prevent your extensions from getting damaged, use a satin pillowcase or scarf. This will help keep your hair smooth and prevent it from tangling overnight.

You should also avoid sleeping with wet hair, as this can cause your extensions to become frizzy and damaged. If you must wash your hair before bed, be sure to use a leave-in conditioner to help keep your hair hydrated overnight.

Expert recommended hair extensions are a great way to add length, volume, and style to your hair. But like anything else, they require some care and maintenance to keep them looking their best.

Tip #5 Avoid Heat Tools

Hair extensions that are made of real human hair can be styled just like your own natural hair. However, it’s best to avoid using any heat styling tools, as this can cause damage. If you must use a curling iron or straightener, be sure to use a heat protectant spray first. This will help keep your hair extensions looking healthy and shiny.

Tip #6 Store Properly

Seamless extensions should be stored in a cool, dry place. When you’re not wearing them, make sure to clip them back into their original position. This will help keep them from getting tangled or matted.

When storing extensions, avoid using any rubber bands or hair ties. These can cause damage to the hair, leaving it brittle and dry. Clip ins can also be stored in a cool, dry place. But be sure to clip them onto a piece of fabric or foam, so they don’t get tangled.
