Installing high-quality hair extensions only takes us half-way to the gorgeous mane of our dreams. The rest of the journey consists entirely of the work we ourselves invest into the nurture of our new locks. Please keep in mind that, unlike your own hair, fitted extensions do not benefit from your naturally secreted oils. They need extra attention and maintenance on your part in order to retain a healthy, beautiful appearance for as long as possible. Simply put, proper and diligent care results in longer-lasting extensions.


But I get that to beginners, sorting through the ins-and-outs of correct extension care procedures may seem no easier than untangling matted strands with the wrong type of brush. So, to save you some time, I have put together a list of 7 highly helpful tips, in addition to my more detailed general care guide. Making these steps part of your daily routine will help ensure that your Bio or Tape Hair extensions continue bringing you joy for many months to come.


7 EASY TIPS FOR TAKING CARE OF YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS
