How Do I Take Care of My Hand-Tied Hair Extensions?

- Frequent brushing is the foundation for proper hair extension care. Remember: Not any brush will do. Avoid brushes with massaging nodules on the bristles. These bumps can get caught between your hair and the extensions and pull on them. Choose a loop brush instead.
- Put your hair extension in a low ponytail or braid before bedtime to avoid tangles.
- Avoid salt water or chlorinated pools to prevent tangles, dryness and discoloration.
- Do not spend too much time in the sun. UV rays can discolor and dry out your hair extensions. Where a wide-brim hat to prevent damage.
- Use shampoos and hair care products formulated for hair extensions. Remember that your scalp produces natural oils to protect and condition hair. Since the hair extensions do not grow directly from your head, you need the proper hair products to replicate and preserve them.
