How to Wash Hair Extensions
Keeping your scalp and hair clean is important for beautiful hair. Luckily, it’s easy to wash your hair, even with hair extensions.
Use sulfate-free shampoo on your scalp and a sulfate-free conditioner from the mid shaft to the ends.
Wash your hair one direction. Avoid washing your hair upside down. Don’t scrunch up your hair or rub it harshly. This helps prevent tangling.
After rinsing your hair, gently wring out the water so it’s not dripping wet.
For extra smooth hair, add a leave-in conditioner to the midshaft down. Comb through any tangles and air dry, if possible. If you use a blow drier, apply a heat protectant first.
Some other things to keep in mind:
Try to wash your hair as infrequently as possible. If your hair is particularly oily, it’s alright to wash it every day, but if you can, try get away with once every two to three days. Babe’s Dry Shampoo makes this pretty easy.
