Use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner specifically formulated for hair extensions.

Detangle the hair gently before washing to prevent tangling during the process.

Wash the extensions in a downward motion, avoiding excessive rubbing or twisting.

Rinse thoroughly to remove all shampoo and conditioner residue.


Gently squeeze out excess water from the extensions after washing. Do not twist or wring them.

Allow the extensions to air dry whenever possible to minimize heat damage.

If using a blow dryer, set it to a low heat or cool setting and use a diffuser to evenly distribute the airflow.


Use a wide-toothed comb or a brush specifically designed for extensions to prevent tugging and breakage.

Start brushing from the ends and gradually work your way up to the roots.

Hold the hair near the roots while brushing to avoid putting excessive tension on the attachment points.


Minimize the use of heat styling tools such as straighteners and curling irons to prevent damage to the hair.

If using heat, always apply a heat protectant spray before styling.

Avoid using excessive styling products, as they can weigh down the hair and cause build-up.


Before bed, loosely braid or tie your hair in a low ponytail to prevent tangling while you sleep.

Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase to minimize friction and reduce hair breakage.


Visit a professional hair extension stylist for regular maintenance and repositioning if needed.

Avoid using products containing alcohol, as they can dry out the hair and cause damage.

Remember, raw hair extensions are delicate and require gentle care to ensure longevity. By following these tips and treating your extensions with care, you can keep them looking beautiful for an extended period.
