Whether you wear extensions for protective styling, versatility, easier maintenance or you just love how you look in them, you must remember one thing! Hair extensions still and always will require maintenance. Although virgin hair/raw hair may not be your own living, growing hair, it still requires attention and regular maintenance with tender love and care just like your real hair.

Regular maintenance helps to ensure that your extensions are always looking phenomenal, and has that long lasting body luster and longevity.

Below are 3 steps you must follow in order to ensure the upkeep of your extensions.


  1. Detangling

The first step to maintaining your extensions is detangling. You should always ensure that the hair is free of tangles. That way, when your at the shampooing phase, your able to reach every strand without putting too much stress on the hair.

The detangling process involves the use of a wide-toothed comb or a detangling brush. When detangling, you want to make sure you are combing in small incremental sections, using short and gentle combing strokes, from the bottom up, to avoid excessive stress and pulling. Also, avoid combing/brushing the hair when it's wet because that is when the follicles are at its most vulnerable and makes it most susceptible to shedding

 

  1. Shampooing/Conditioning

Shampooing should be done at least once a week (depending on texture, perspiration, and environmental conditions) and should always be done with warm water only. It's also best to wash extensions with a moisturizing shampoo. We recommend using Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Hydrating Shampoo for your straight extensions  

 

and

Pantene Gold Series Argan Oil, Moisture Boost Shampoo, For Natural And Curly Textured Hair for your curly extensions

To achieve the best results with the least amount of stress on the hair, wash, condition, and rinse in a gentle downward motion, working from top to bottom. Never scrub or bunch the hair together, and avoid any motion that causes excessive friction. Rinse after each wash, and wash a maximum of two times.

Again, apply and work in conditioner gently from top to bottom. We recommend using Dabur Vatika Naturals Egg Protein Restoring Conditioner (or any Vatika conditioner

 

  1. Moisturizing/Deep Conditioning

Moisturizing/Deep conditioning is one the most neglected steps in maintaining your hair extensions. Just as your real hair needs moisture so does your hair extensions

Keeping the hair in top shape requires the use of a deep conditioner or application of a hot-oil treatment about twice a month, especially if the hair has been chemically treated, dyed, or if irons and wands have been used on it often. We recommend that you moisturize with a natural oil two to three times a week. You can use argon oil as a finisher for styling and frizz, and you can use almond or coconut oil for a deeper, more thorough moisturizing effect.

Although your extensions may not be your "real" hair, it still requires care and maintenance.
