Even if you have bought high quality and expensive hair extension, you still need to take care of them. Taking care of them will increase their life and you will save a lot of money as well. We are going to tell you 5 tips to double the lifespan of human hair extensions. Follow them and do your own self a favor!

Brush Them

Just like brushing our hair is quite important, similarly brushing your hair extension is important as well. You must brush them once or twice a day if you are wearing them. Before, you put back your extensions back in a box to store them, you should also brush them again and tie a hair tie at the edges, so they don’t get tangled.

Store Them Properly 

Speaking of storing the hair extensions, you must know the right way to store them as well. To store them you need to brush them first and then put them in a container or box separately. You should never put more than one extension in a box. Also, store the box in a cool and dry place.

Don’t Wash Them Too Often

The human hair extensions must not be washed quite often because moisture and nutrients can be washed off them. It is better to wash hair extensions whenever you feel they are dirty or need a hair wash. Don’t forget to apply conditioner after you wash your hair extension. It is recommended to wash them once a month or after wearing them 30 times.

Use Heat Protectant

Before you style your hair with heat styling tools, you must use heat protectant.  Heat Styling tools must not be used regularly, and they should be avoided. It is best to keep different hair extensions for different use. For example, If you want to rock dead straight hair then use straight hair extensions and if you want to rock your curls then use curly hair extensions.

Protect Them from Damage

Just like you protect your natural hair from damage you should also protect human hair extensions as well. Apply a heat protectant before you curl, straighten or blow dry them. Always use a hair sunscreen before you go out. If you want to dye them to a lighter color, then you must take an expert’s advice.
