Tips You Need To Keep In Mind When Storing Hair Extensions

1. Brush your extensions before storing them. After removing your extensions from your head, spend a few minutes gently brushing through them with a wide-toothed comb. Remember to start brushing at the bottom and work your way up to the roots.

2. Wash your extensions before long-term storage with sulfate-free and paraben-free shampoos and conditioners. That is because too much oil buildup can make it harder for your extensions to stay in place.

For short-term storage, if you recently washed your body wave hair weaves, you probably don’t need to rewash them before storing them.

3. Also, ensure your extensions are completely dry when storing to prevent mold and other bacteria from growing.

If possible, absorb extra moisture of your hair extensions with a clean towel first and leave it in a ventilated area to air dry.

If you are in hurry, use a blow dryer on the lowest heat setting. In a word, you must ensure they’re fully dry before putting them away to keep them from getting moldy or developing a weird smell.

4. Seal your wefts before long-term storage to prevent shedding. You can go to your local cosmetic store or hair salon to buy a sealant made for hair extensions and follow the directions to apply the sealant to both sides of your hair extension’s wefts, then let them dry completely before putting them into storage.

5. Fold and roll the wefts when you plan to put them in a box or small bag.

For instance, you can wrap the hair extensions around your hand to form a kind of donut shape. You could also hold the bottom of the extension and twist it in one direction to roll it up.

In addition, don’t forget to check that the clips are all closed before you roll the wefts to prevent them from getting bent out of shape.

6. If you opt to store the curly hair bundles with a hanger, it is best to fold the weft over on itself several times, then wrap a scrunchie around the hair extensions 2-3 times, which can keep the extensions from getting tangled while it’s in storage.

7. Always ensure you store your clip in extensions in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight (like a closet, cabinet, or dresser drawer).
