Caring for you hair under hair extensions

Knowing how to care for your new hair extensions and hair under your hair extensions takes proper care. Your new weave will always look and feel great if cared for properly. But, it takes proper care to maintain your hair and weave and keep it in top shape in between your visits to the stylist/beautician.

Don’t just shell out hundreds of dollars for a sew-in install and hope for it to last longer than expected. You need to know how to take care of your weave correctly to make sure you are getting the most out of your hair extension without sacrificing the health of your actual hair or wallet. Follow this hair extension guide to promote healthy and lush growth underneath your hair extensions:

1. Shampoo and Conditioner

- air-drying your hair is the best method to protect your weave and your hair under your weave

- if you must blow-dry your hair, please use a heat protectant and make sure your braids are dry
