You’ve just spent a good amount of your time and money to get your new look; the last thing you want is early slippage or damage. The following are the most important extension home care instructions:

Washing and conditioning.  Hair extensions should always be washed and conditioned with sulfate-free products. Any products containing sulfates can dry up the hair extensions. Conditioner should be applied only at the midshaft through the ends. If any oils or conditioners are placed on the bonds or scalp they will weigh down the extensions, just as they would your natural hair. The bonds will also slip. The same rule goes for hair masks, leave-in conditioners, and any other moisturizing treatments.  Apply a hair mask at least once a month to help keep the hair moisturized and preserve its shine.

Brushing. Both natural hair and hair extensions are weakest when wet. So to avoid breakage, apply a detangler, leave-in conditioner, or oil to the hair before brushing. The proper way to brush is to start from the bottom, working your way up. If you start from top to bottom you will cause tangles and breakage, just like with your natural hair.  Also, remind your clients to pat dry their hair extensions when using a towel. Rubbing a towel back and forth can cause a matted mess because of so much friction. And whenever possible, blow-dryers should be avoided, leaving the extensions to air dry. Constant heat will damage the hair faster.

Styling. Ponytails, buns, braids, or any up-do’s should be loose. Tight hair styles means there’s constant pulling at the tape, and guess what that does? Yup, you guessed it: it pulls the hair extension connection over time and your client will start having her hair extensions slipping in no time. Before bedtime, hair extensions should be styled as well. Placing hair extensions in a loose braid or ponytail and using a head wrap or headscarf will help protect the hair from tangles.

Heat. When heat is used to curl, straighten, or dry hair extensions, a heat protectant should always be used. The proper way to apply a heat protectant is to read the directions on the bottle. One tip we do want to give is this: never apply a heat protectant right before applying the heat tool. Always wait a minute or two for the hair to absorb the product. That way you’re not frying the hair due to the wetness of a fresh product application. If you overuse heat tools on your hair extensions, it could fry them, just as it would your natural hair. Less heat is always better.  Also, remember to avoid applying heat to the bonds directly!
