Extension Care Guide

Caring for your hair extensions at home is crucial to maintaining their quality and ensuring they stay looking great for as long as possible. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you care for your hair extensions:


  • Use a wide-tooth comb or a special extension brush to gently detangle your hair extensions.
  • Start from the ends and work your way up to the roots to avoid unnecessary tension.


  • Use a sulfate-free and paraben-free shampoo to wash your hair extensions.
  • Gently lather the shampoo and apply it in a downward motion.
  • Rinse thoroughly to ensure no shampoo or conditioner residue remains.


  • Apply a high-quality conditioner, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends.
  • Leave the conditioner on for the recommended time, and then rinse thoroughly.
  • Consider using a deep conditioning treatment once a week to keep the hair moisturized.


  • Pat your hair extensions gently with a microfiber towel to remove excess water.
  • Avoid rubbing the hair vigorously to prevent tangling.
  • Let the hair air dry whenever possible to reduce heat damage.
  • If you need to use heat, apply a heat protectant spray and use a low-heat setting on your hairdryer.


  • Use heat styling tools sparingly to prevent damage.
  • When curling or straightening, use a lower temperature setting.
  • Avoid applying heat directly to the bonds if you have fusion or tape-in extensions.

Nighttime Care:

  • Tie your hair in a loose braid or ponytail before going to bed to prevent tangling.
  • Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase to reduce friction and minimize frizz.

Avoiding Chemicals:

  • Avoid exposing your extensions to chlorine, saltwater, or excessive sunlight.
  • Be cautious with hair products containing alcohol, as they can dry out the extensions.

Regular Maintenance:

  • Schedule regular maintenance appointments with your stylist for adjustments or removal and reinstallation of the extensions.
  • Trim the ends of your extensions every 6-8 weeks to prevent split ends.


  • When not in use, store your extensions in a cool, dry place.
  • Use a designated storage bag or box to prevent tangling and dust accumulation.

Professional Care:

  • Seek professional advice if you experience any issues or concerns with your extensions.
  • Don't attempt to remove extensions at home; always consult your stylist for proper removal.

By following these tips and incorporating them into your regular hair care routine, you can keep your hair extensions looking beautiful and healthy for an extended period.
