How to Care for Your Curly Human Hair Extensions

Curly human hair extensions are a popular way to add volume and length to your natural hair, as well as to experiment with different styles and looks. However, taking care of curly human hair extensions can be a bit challenging, especially if you are new to wearing them. In this blog post, we will share some tips on how to look after your curly human hair extensions so that they stay healthy and look fabulous for longer.

  1. Wash your hair extensions regularly

Just like your natural hair, curly human hair extensions need to be washed regularly to remove dirt, oil, and product buildup. However, unlike your natural hair, hair extensions do not produce oils to keep them moisturised, so you need to take extra care to keep them hydrated.

When washing your curly human hair extensions, use a sulfate-free shampoo and a hydrating conditioner to help retain moisture. Be sure to detangle your hair gently with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers, starting from the ends and working your way up. Avoid rubbing or twisting your hair, as this can cause frizz and damage.

  1. Deep condition your hair extensions

Deep conditioning is an essential step in maintaining the health and longevity of your curly human hair extensions. Deep conditioning helps to restore moisture, soften the hair, and prevent tangles and breakage.

To deep condition your hair extensions, apply a moisturising hair mask or deep conditioner and leave it on for at least 30 minutes, or as recommended by the product instructions. You can also use a steam cap or sit under a hooded dryer to help the product penetrate the hair shaft.

  1. Use heat protectant when styling

Styling your curly human hair extensions with heat tools like flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers can cause damage and reduce the lifespan of your hair extensions. To protect your hair from heat damage, always use a heat protectant spray or serum before using any heat tools.

  1. Avoid using too much product

While it may be tempting to load up your curly human hair extensions with hair products to enhance their curls or add shine, using too much product can actually weigh down the hair and cause buildup. Instead, use a light leave-in conditioner or oil to keep your hair moisturized and add shine.

  1. Store your hair extensions properly

Proper storage is essential to keep your curly human hair extensions in good condition and prevent tangling and matting. When not in use, store your hair extensions in a cool, dry place, preferably in a breathable bag or box. Avoid using plastic bags, as they can trap moisture and lead to mold growth.

  1. Brush your hair extensions regularly

Brushing your curly human hair extensions regularly is an important step in preventing tangling and matting. Use a wide-tooth comb or a special extension brush to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up.

  1. Avoid sleeping with wet hair

Sleeping with wet hair extensions can cause tangling, matting, and even mold growth. To prevent this, always make sure your hair extensions are completely dry before going to bed.

  1. Get regular trims

Just like your natural hair, hair extensions can develop split ends and damage over time. Getting regular trims can help to prevent split ends and keep your hair extensions looking healthy and fresh.

  1. Be gentle with your hair extensions

Finally, it's important to be gentle with your curly human hair extensions to prevent damage and extend their lifespan. Avoid pulling or tugging on your hair, and be careful when styling or brushing your hair. Treat your hair extensions as gently as you would treat your natural hair, and they will last longer and look better.

Taking care of curly human hair extensions requires a bit of effort and attention, but it is well worth it!
