Step-By-Step Guide To Washing Your Hair Extensions
The best hair extensions can be washed a few times a week, but the least amount of washing will assure your extensions will last a long time.Suggested Hair Extensions Products
SC-hair extensions offer loose and curly gentle waves that shouldn’t be weighed down with heavy thickening shampoos or conditioners. Choose a gentle, nourishing, shampoo and conditioner that you would use on your specific hair and skin type. Ensure longevity for your low-maintenance hair extensions with paraben-free shampoo and conditioner. If your hair extensions are colored, you must use a shampoo specifically designated for color-treated hair.Step 1 – Gently Brush the Extensions
It’s very important to brush the hair extensions to remove any tangles. Begin at the bottom and work to the top. This should alleviate shedding of the hair. Using a wide-tooth brush with soft bristle, ceramic wig, or rubber tipped brush, should offer the best results for your wefts.Step 2 - Prepare Your Sink
Thoroughly clean the sink you will use for washing your hair extensions. Make sure there is no soap or cleaning chemical residue in the sink. Fill the sink with lukewarm/cool water. Add one tablespoon of shampoo into the water and swish it around to be certain it is completely dissolved.Step 3 – Cleanse all Wefts
Divide your set of hair extensions into small groups. This will ensure that each weft gets thoroughly cleaned. Hold the group of wefts at the top and immerse completely in the water. Stroke the shampoo into the hair gently with your fingers. Don’t use a circular motion or the hair may tangle. Set aside on a clean towel as you repeat the procedure on the remaining wefts.Step 4 – Rinse all Wefts
Rinse each group of wefts in cool water two or three times until completely rinsed of any shampoo residue. Change the water frequently so no soap remains on the hair. Another method is to give them a gentle rinsing in the shower.Step 5 – Conditions the Extensions
Your hair extensions will remain soft and healthy if you properly condition the hair. Each weft needs to be properly nourished and moisturized. Apply a generous amount of conditioner, and gently massage it into the hair from top to bottom. Set the weft on a clean towel and leave it for an hour if possible to seal in the moisture. After a time, rinse the conditioner thoroughly from each strand with cold water. The hair shouldn’t feel greasy after rinsing. Step 6 – Air Dry the Extensions
Lay the hair extensions out on a clean towel. Your hair extensions will stay healthy and last longer if you let them air dry naturally. If you experience any frizziness of the hair, you can apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner to your strand. Using a hair dryer can result in shedding or damage of the weaves. If you are pressed for time and must use a hair dryer, you need to apply a heat protectant on each strand to prevent damage. Use a low temperature setting and gentle blowing with a hair dryer.
Step 7 – Comb Each Weft
The hair is prone to damage and can break easily if combed while wet. Once they have AIR-dried completely, brush through each weft gently. It’s best to use a wide-toothed comb. Start at the bottom and work up to the top.
