Top Tips for Maintaining Healthy Hair Extensions

Today, let’s dive into one of the most asked questions in the world of hair care: how to keep those stunning hair extensions looking and feeling amazing for as long as possible.

Whether you're wearing them for added length, volume, or a splash of colour, taking care of your hair extensions is key to keeping them in tip-top shape.

  • Choose Quality Extensions: It all starts with selecting high-quality hair extensions. Opt for extensions made from real human hair, as they blend seamlessly with your natural locks and can withstand heat styling and other hair treatments.
  • Regular Maintenance: Just like your natural hair, extensions require regular maintenance to stay healthy. Schedule routine appointments with your stylist for adjustments, trims, and maintenance to ensure they stay looking fresh and vibrant.
  • Gentle Washing: When washing your hair extensions, use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and lukewarm water. Avoid harsh rubbing or tugging, as this can cause damage or tangling. Instead, gently massage the shampoo into your scalp.
  • Hydration is Key: Just like your skin, hair extensions need hydration to stay soft and manageable. Invest in a high-quality conditioner or hair mask and apply it from mid-length to the ends of your extensions. 
  • Mindful Styling: While your extensions can handle heat styling, excessive heat can lead to dryness and damage over time. Opt for lower heat settings on your styling tools and always use a heat protectant spray.
  • Detangle with Care: Always use a wide-tooth comb or a extension brush, we recommend our Luxury Wide Tooth Comb and our Luxury Paddle Brush to detangle your hair extensions. Start from the ends and work your way up to the roots, gently easing out any knots or tangles without pulling or yanking.
  • Night Time Care: Loosely tie your hair extensions in a low ponytail or braid to prevent tangling while you sleep. Consider investing in a silk or satin pillowcase, which reduces friction and helps maintain the smoothness of your extensions. Never go to bed with wet hair!
  • Regular Trims: Just like your natural hair, split ends can occur with extensions. Schedule regular trims with your stylist to remove any damaged ends and keep your extensions looking fresh and healthy.
