How to clean my hair extensions
While clip-in hair extensions don't require excessive cleaning, especially if you don't wear them every day, they do need to be washed occasionally in order to keep them in good condition.
Clip-in extensions require special care to ensure that the clips and the hair will last. Whether you're wearing synthetic or human hair clip-in extensions, the process is relatively simple, but it's always wise to proceed with caution.
Human hair extensions must be untangled before washing. It's best to use your fingers to gently pull tangled hair apart. By their very nature, hair extensions
are rather delicate and do require a certain amount of attention when you handle them, using a comb or a brush to clean and straighten your extensions
is not recommended as doing so can tear or break the hair and pull them out of the clips. Through normal use and care your extensions
will thin out and is to be expected. So try and avoid access styling.
Fill a large bowl or a sink with lukewarm water. Place the ends of the hair extensions in the water and drape the end with the clip over the side of the bowl or sink. Keeping the clips out of the water is essential to avoid rusting and breaking. While the clips can be replaced if they start to break, it's much easier to avoid this by keeping the clips dry. Never brush or comb wet hair extensions
, as they are very easy to damage while wet.
Use a rich shampoo to help maintain and repair your natural extensions
, we recommend using our NuMe Moisturizing Shampoo, as it's specially formulated and promotes healthy natural looking hair. Be careful to keep wefts separate from each other to avoid inter-tangling them together. It is important that you clean each weft separately, to avoid knotting and tangling multiple extensions
Human hair extensions will be shinier and last longer if you use conditioner after washing. Use a small amount of our Moisturizing Conditioner to keep the hair looking shiny.
A Blow dryer can be used to dry your extensions
. Special care should be taken and you should always start out on low and work your way up as needed. Our NuMe Ionic Blow Dryer helps keep your extensions
calm and frizz free, thanks to it's ability to infuse your extensions
with Ions and it's gentle Far Infra red heating technology. Be careful to only blow dry from the top down. Blow drying from the bottom up can cause teasing and knotting.
As a general rule, the less product you put in the hair the better. Be gentle and use care in cleaning and storing your hair extensions
. These are just a few simple to follow steps you can do to dramatically extend the life of your extensions
