Best Upkeep Practices for Wearing Hair Extensions

Hair extensions can be a game-changer for anyone looking to add length, volume, or versatility to their hairstyle. However, like natural hair, hair extensions require proper care and maintenance to keep them looking their best. In this article, we'll discuss the best upkeep practices for hair extensions to help you enjoy your new look for an extended period.

  •  Choose High-Quality Extensions: The foundation of good upkeep starts with selecting high-quality hair extensions. Opt for extensions made from 100% human hair, as they are more durable, look natural, and can be styled and treated like your own hair. Quality extensions may cost more upfront but will prove to be a wise investment in the long run.
  • Regularly Brush Your Extensions: Just like natural hair, hair extensions can become tangled and matted. To prevent this, brush your extensions gently with a suitable extension-friendly brush or a wide-toothed comb. Start at the tips and work your way up to the roots, holding the hair near the roots to minimize stress on the bonds or wefts.
  • Wash and Condition Properly: Wash your hair extensions only when necessary, usually every 1-2x per weeks. Use Tiffany Twist's silicone & sulfate-free, JUST CLEAN HAIR moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, and feel free to apply conditioner near the roots or attachment points, as it will cleanse the bonds and keep shed hairs tangle-free. Rinse thoroughly to remove all product residue.
  • Avoid Hot Water and Steam: Excessive heat can weaken the bonds of your hair extensions, leading to premature shedding. When washing your hair, use lukewarm or cool water, and avoid steam rooms, saunas, or hot showers that can loosen the adhesive or cause the extensions to slip.
  • Be Cautious with Styling: While hair extensions can be styled with heat tools, it's essential to use them sparingly and on low to medium heat settings to prevent damage. Always use a heat protectant spray before styling and be gentle when using styling tools around the attachment points.
  • Secure Extensions During Sleep: To prevent tangling and minimize stress on the extensions while you sleep, consider tying your hair in a loose ponytail or braid. Alternatively, you can use a silk or satin pillowcase, which reduces friction and helps maintain the smoothness of the hair.
  • Professional Maintenance: Visit a professional hairstylist who specializes in hair extensions for regular maintenance appointments. They can check the condition of your extensions, tighten any loose bonds, and trim or style them as needed to keep your hairstyle looking fresh.
  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Limit the use of products that contain alcohol, sulfates, and harsh chemicals, as they can dry out the extensions and lead to damage. Look for extension-friendly hair care products that are gentle and moisturizing.
  • Protect from Sun and UV Rays: Prolonged exposure to sunlight can fade and damage hair extensions, just like natural hair. Use UV-protective sprays or wear a hat when spending time in the sun to shield your extensions from harmful UV rays.

Hair extensions can transform your look and boost your confidence, but they require proper care and maintenance to ensure they stay in excellent condition. By following these best upkeep practices, you can enjoy your hair extensions for an extended period, maintain their natural appearance, and keep them looking stunning day after day. Remember that investing time and effort in caring for your extensions will pay off in the form of long-lasting, beautiful hair.
