Do you want to double the life of your favorite hair extensions? Let's find out!!!


Brush Your Hair Extensions Often

A brush is essential before storing your hair extensions, and using the right brush is equally important. A looped hair extension brush is best because it is made of looped nylon bristles that glide through the hair more easily, gently removing any tangles. Traditional brushes can sometimes snag or pull on the hair, causing the extensions to break. Other safe brush options include soft bristle brushes or wide-tooth combs.

Make sure not to brush when the extensions are wet, as this is when breakage is more likely to occur. Also, start at the ends of the hair and brush upward toward the roots to feel for any knots and prevent snagging. Don't comb only when you're ready to store your hair extensions. Instead, comb your hair throughout the day to prevent tangles. Keeping your hair tangle-free will prevent tangles and prolong the appearance and life of your hair extensions.

Store Your Hair Extensions Properly

Storing hair extensions properly is one of the best and easiest ways to keep your hair extensions better and longer, and it doesn't take much time or effort. After you remove your hair extensions, you need to run your hair through your hair with a comb. Then use our dust bag and clips to hang your hair on.

The key to prolonging the use of hair extensions is key to avoiding direct sunlight, requiring us to keep the hair extensions in a cool, dry place. It is also important to make sure the hair extensions are dry before storage to help prevent any product build-up, mold, and any other bacteria.

Use Virgin Hair Extensions

Virgin Hair is made from hair that has been cut directly from healthy adult hair. The hair is not chemically treated before it is produced as hair extensions. This is why the hair retains at least 90% of its scales. The scales help the hair retain moisture better and reduce dryness and tangles. That's why Virgin Hair can last for more than 8 months or even 1 year.

When you compare the price of virgin hair and remy hair, you may think that virgin hair is too expensive. It's more than you can afford. But remy hair is available for 3 months, while virgin hair will be available for more than 8 months. We compared the price of 100 grams of 20 inches tape in hair on the website and calculated their consumption amount. The result is that the daily consumption of remy hair is $1.5/day, while virgin hair costs only $0.9/day.

Avoid Multiple Hair Products

Avoid products with SLS, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Alcohol Denat, Ethanol, SD Alcohol 40, Propanol, Isopropyl, and Propyl. Using sulfate-free and alcohol-free shampoos, conditioners, and other styling products helps preserve the health and longevity of the hair as sulfates and alcohol strip the hair of natural oils and dry strands out quicker, causing tangles, split ends, and matting. Read the labels of your hair products carefully. Be mindful that even the products you use in your natural hair may transfer into the extensions you wearing, so it's best to steer clear of these products all around.

If you want to change the color, keep in mind that human hair extensions can be dyed dark, but can not light or bleached, which will cause serious damage to the hair. If you can't find the exact shade you want in your hair extensions, it's best to leave them to a professional when you want to color or dye your hair extensions.


Only Wash Your Extensions When Necessary

The duration of hair use is also closely related to the number of times you wash your hair, for Remy hair extensions there is usually no way to use it again after 20 washes. For clip in extensions, he can be easily removed from the hair. The general rule is to wash your extensions every 30 times or once a month. This way your clip in hair will last longer.

Keep in mind that unlike our natural hair, which produces oils to keep the strands moisturized, hair extensions do not. This is why using hair oil, or a sulfate and alcohol-free conditioner is important to maintain the longevity of your hair extensions. Sometimes, washing with conditioner only, without shampoo, is also a great way to keep your hair extensions looking and feeling like new. Determine if you need to shampoo your hair extensions based on how often you wear them, how you style them, and how long you have had them.

When washing, handle extensions gently and avoid strenuous rubbing. Rinse extensions under cold water to help retain moisture at the end of the cleaning routine. Allow the extensions to air dry or lay them flat on a microfiber towel as this material will absorb excess moisture. Remember not to towel dry the extensions, but to gently pat the extensions. If possible, it is best to avoid blow-drying extensions, but if necessary, make sure to use heat protection products and a low-temperature setting. To help prevent frizz, apply a small amount of hair oil from the middle to the end of the extensions and make sure they are properly dried before storage.

Only Wash Your Extensions When Necessary

Don't Sleep Or Workout With Hair Extensions

When you use clip in hair, please remove the extensions before bedtime and do not sleep with them on. The friction with the pillow (even if you sleep on a silk pillowcase) and the tossing and turning at night will cause the weft hair extensions to tangle with your natural hair. It is more likely to cause tangles in your hair.

While natural oils and sweat can be easily cleaned and washed out after exercise, the same cannot be said for hair extensions. If you don't wash your hair extensions, bacteria may develop. Constant movement and friction can also cause tangles and knots. Make sure you take off your hair extensions before going to the gym or starting any sweaty workouts, this will help keep your hair dry, healthy, and lasting longer.
