We all know that the hot summer months can do quite a bit of damage to your hair, and that’s why it’s imperative that you take special care of your extensions. It’s important to remember that extensions are no longer attached to the scalp, so the only way the receive nutrients and moisture is if you provide them with it by washing them, giving them treatments and replenish their nutrients with oils.

The best way to maintain your hair and restore it to its natural beauty is by washing away any product that may have built up. The more often you wear the hair, the more often you’ll need to wash it. If the hair must be washed while installed, take caution when washing the hair near its base (such as fusion hair extensions, tape-in extensions, and sew-in weaves). Aggressive washing will most likely lead to a looser install and can even result in slippage. In addition, conditioners can loosen for the bond for keratin glue. Be gentle when washing the hair and the installation will last as long as it’s expected to. Being exposed to extreme heat can really dry out your hair so be sure to use moisturizing products such as our hydrating shampoo and hydrating conditioner to refresh the hair.
