Wash with care

This may be a no-brainer to some but many women don’t understand that although hair extensions don’t get as dirty as your real hair, it is important to wash them regularly and carefully.Keep your hair and scalp clean! Wash your hair gentle in a downward motion (from the roots to the ends).

Make sure that your hair is clean before you use a hair conditioner. Condition your hair after every wash.Dry your hair gently, don't rub it with a towel but move in a downward motion from roots to ends. Gently detangle your hair.

Wear a swimming cap

Prolonged exposure to saltwater and chlorine can make your hair dry and knotty. Therefore, always wear a swimming cap to prevent contact between your extensions and the salt or chlorine in the water you’re swimming in. After swimming, wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner.

Avoid heat

Heat is any hair’s arch nemesis. The more you expose your hair to heat, the more you shorten its lifespan. Therefore, it is critical that you limit use of flat irons, blow dryers and curling irons. While it is ideal to let your hair bundles with closure dry naturally, you can allow your hair to air dry slightly and then finish it off with a blow dryer. Use a soft bristle brush for combing your hair and start from the bottom, detangling the ends before you comb your hair from the scalp.

Keeping your hair tied back into a ponytail is a great way of protecting it while you exercise – the same rule applies for sleeping as well.
