Tip #1

Make sure when you wash your wigs or hair extensions you untangle any strands before running under water by using your wide tooth comb GENTLY. 

Tip #2

Run your hair extensions or wig under cool or lukewarm water and use a small amount of shampoo to work it into your hair piece. Make sure to wash from roots to ends. After you feel that you’ve washed your hair extensions properly, go ahead and repeat with the conditioner. REMEMBER: Don’t twist to ring out the hair, you should use your hands to squeeze out any excess water. 

Tip #3 

The secret to keeping your wigs and hair extensions in top tier shape is by waiting for your hair to air dry on a wig stand before applying any heat such as a blow dryer. Once you’ve let your hair extensions completely dry you may style it how you see fit. We have customized hot tools available as well that look just as fabulous as your hair! Check them out here!
