5 Tips to Maintain Hair Extensions

There’s nothing like bundles to make you feel glamorous. But how do you maintain your new glamorous look? Here are 5 simple steps to make sure your extensions last:

Sleep Routine

Don’t sleep on this step in extension maintenance. If your hair is curly, it’s best to use the pineapple method, which includes putting your hair in a high ponytail with a scrunchie. If you’re rocking straight tresses, it’s best to wrap your hair and cover with a silk scarf.



Don’t believe the hype. Extensions kept in longer than a couple weeks should be washed. Use sulfate free shampoo and conditioner (Products that contain sulfate are very damaging and extremely drying to the hair.) BASIC Clarifying Shampoo and BASIC Restoration Conditioner are good options for extension maintenance.



No Wet Hair

When it comes to hair extensions, be sure that you never sleep on wet hair. It can cause matting of hair extensions. Be sure to dry hair thoroughly before laying your head to rest at night.


Let It Go

Keeping hair extensions in too long is not a good look. Most sew-in installations last 10 to 12 weeks. So be sure to book an appointment for a wash and trim to your natural hair in between extension installs.


Opt for clip-ins

If these steps seem like too much of a commitment, then it may be best to opt for a less permanent solution to hair extensions. Clip-ins are a great option for those looking to avoid all the work that comes from sewn-in or bonded extensions.  Set up a consultation about clip-ins now.
