Woven hair adds instant length, volume, and beauty to your natural hair, and the good news is that these extensions don’t come cheap.

However, you can add a little personality to your weave hair extensions by taking care of it. Here, we’ll discuss some of the things you can do.

There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to caring for your extensions . One of the first things to remember is that they do not like shampoo.

Therefore, it’s important that you do not wash your hair every day with any type of shampoo that contains shampoos. If you are using any shampoo designed for human hair , it’s important to note that your extensions might not like it very much either.

In fact, many have reported that using too much shampoo can cause their hair to become dry and brittle.

When it comes to shampooing your extensions, it’s important to purchase a sulfate-free shampoo. This will eliminate any possibility of irritating your extensions. Some extensions can be quite sensitive, and you don’t want to aggravate them in any way.

Therefore, it’s best to purchase a sulfate-free shampoo  that is designed for human hair.

As far as moisturizing is concerned, some experts say that you shouldn’t massage the hair or scalp at all while it’s wet.

Others say that massaging the scalp will actually cause more damage than good. Either way, it’s important to cleanse the hair and scalp once a week in order to ensure that the hair has adequate moisture.

For extensions made out of natural hair, this step should be done once or twice a week, but if the extension is made from synthetic hair, you should cleanse the hair and scalp at least once per week.

Sew-in hair extension  care tips include gently pressing the hair together at the roots. Once the hair is pressed firmly, it’s time to apply sebum (the oil produced by the scalp). If you’re using sewing in hair extension, you should press the extensions firmly against the scalp.

After the extensions are sewn in, you need to allow them to fully dry before gently brushing them with an old toothbrush.

How to take care of them tip number two involves the use of sulfate-free shampoos. As mentioned previously, extensions made of natural hair may be at risk for developing fungus because of the chemicals contained in most shampoos. 

Extensions that are sewn in may also develop hairline cracks if they’re subjected to constant friction.

In addition to using sulfate-free shampoos, you should also avoid using conditioners and styling products with sulfates, such as gels, mousses, foams and so on.

For how to care for weft hair extensions that aren’t clip-in, the final step involves protecting them from possible damage. To do this, you can wear some form of protection like a mask or cover-up.

A good idea would be a plastic headband to secure your hair. If you leave your extensions out and they’re left exposed to the elements, they may begin to crack, split and even fall out. You may also consider adding a little heat protectant to the ends of your clip-in hair extensions.

If you don’t have any heat protectant in your home, you may want to invest in a small spray bottle filled with boiling water to spray on your clips.
