The Ultimate First-Timer’s Guide to Washing Hair Extensions Like a Pro

Hey there, gorgeous! Now that you’ve got those fabulous hair extensions in place, it’s time to show them the love they deserve. Proper care is the key to keeping them sleek and shiny for the long haul. Here’s your ultimate guide on how to wash hair extensions and make them last for a glorious six months or more – especially if they’re rocking that real human hair vibe.

Step 1: Brush, Baby, Brush!

Before the waterworks begin, give your extensions a gentle brush-down. Start from the bottom and work your way up – we’re talking minimal tangles, maximum glam. Opt for a wide-tooth comb or a soft bristle brush. Clip-in extensions? Stack those wefts neatly for their spa day.

Step 2: Suds and Shine – The Shampoo Dance

Time for some sudsy action! If you’re sink-side, ensure that stage is spotless. Lukewarm water is your hair’s BFF. Wet those extensions, then let 2-3 pumps of sulfate-free shampoo work its magic. Gently does it – no vigorous washing near the bonds or clips. Rinse, then treat the ends with a sulfate-free conditioner. Keep it away from the roots and bonds. Let the conditioner soak for 5-10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.

Step 3: Nourish with a Hair Mask

Pamper time! Treat your natural locks and extensions to a nourishing hair mask once or twice a month. Rinse well to avoid any residue.

Step 4: Air Dry Glam

Squeeze out excess water and let those locks air dry. Want a speedy dry sesh? Grab a micro-fiber towel – less tangles, more speed. If impatience kicks in, apply a heat protection spray before cool-blow drying. Dry from roots to ends, and voila – frizz-free zone.

Step 5: Brush, Style, Slay!

Once dry, gently brush from top to bottom. Styling time! Straighten or curl as you please.

For cllip-in lovers, store them like royalty – in a bag, box, or on an extensions hanger. Ready to slay whenever you are.


That’s it! Washing extensions is a breeze with the right touch and the right products. If you’re ever in doubt, chat us up your for some pro tips. And if your extensions decide to party too hard and slip out, book that stylist appointment for a quick fix.
