How long do hair extensions last?

 

The lifespan of  Malaysia Hair Imports hair extensions and human hair wigs can range anywhere between 12 to 24 months to years depending on the general care they receive and how often they are worn.

Remember, the more you wash and heat style your extensions, the shorter their lifespan will be, so try to keep the washing and using products on your extensions to a minimum.

The important thing to remember is that your hair extensions don’t have a natural hydration source like your own hair does, so keeping them moisturized and reducing dryness is crucial to prolonging their lifespan.

 

When choosing the right hair care products, you should pay attention to silicone-free and products free of fruit acid because silicone can sometimes cause the extensions to loosen.

The following products may not be used: No products with 2 in 1, no products with sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), chemical products such as perm water, oxidation, bleaching powder, etc. Do not use products on your extensions that contain alcohol or perfumes. The same applies to volumizing, smoothing and dandruff shampoos.

Use a hair mask/serum regularly and a conditioner every time you wash your hair.

  • Apply the hair care products only onto the hair ends and length, not on the adhesives (bonds, tapes)
  • Never rub long hair, only gently knead the hair, otherwise knots will form.
  • Part hair sideways and apply a mask from the neck down after each wash.
  • Wrap a towel around the hair and let it sit for a few minutes.
  • Apply hair tip fluid and hair treatments and use an extension brush to comb hair.

Hair Care Guide: How to Properly Care for Hair Extensions

Storing Hair Extensions

 

It takes only a few minutes to put away your Luxy Hair extensions, and those few minutes can make all the difference to the quality and lifespan of your hair extensions. After removing your clip-in hair extensions, ensure that all of the clips are closed shut.

When prepping your extensions for storage, we always recommend brushing the set. Always make sure you store your extensions in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight (like a closet, cabinet, or dresser drawer). Also, ensure your extensions are completely dry when storing them to prevent mold and other bacteria from growing.

One option to store your extensions is in the storage box in which they come in. The Gold Malaysia Hair Imports box is specifically designed so you can keep and reuse it as a storage container for your  Hair extensions and wigs. Alternatively, you can also use an airtight container or a shoebox.

Once you have brushed your extensions out, use a hair tie to secure the hair close to the base of the wefts as a ponytail, then gently roll the extensions into a circle and place them into the box.

A quick tip: You can also even gently knot the hair together if you want a light wave running throughout the hair the next time you wear your extensions.

Whether you’re looking for a place to store your Human hair extensions or wigs while traveling, need to secure them while styling, or just want a more compact and multi-purpose storage alternative to the beautiful box they arrive in, the Malaysia Hair Imports is the solution you’ve been waiting for.

It will help prevent damage and tangling, which in turn, increases the lifespan of your extensions. In comparison to the Malaysia Hair Imports box, you can hang your extensions to air dry using the hanger provided before storing them in the Carrier.

Storing your hair extensions in this way will also help maintain the shape of your extensions longer, which is great if you’ve styled the extensions and want to maintain the look for as long as possible.

 

Hair Products To Avoid

 

One of the most important things to consider when taking care of your extensions is to ensure that you are using the proper products. This will make all the difference in whether your extensions will tangle or stay soft and manageable.

Be sure to check the ingredient listing and ensure you don’t see the words: SLS, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Alcohol Denat, Ethanol, SD Alcohol 40, Propanol, Isopropyl, and Propyl.

purchasing sulfate-free and alcohol-free products is a necessity. These ingredients strip the hair of its natural oils which, in turn, make the hair drier and more prone to tangling or matting. Prolonged use of these ingredients can affect the integrity of the hair, shortening the lifespan of your hair extensions significantly.

Remember, products that are free from sulfates might not produce much lather, as this is the specific ingredients used to create those soapy suds, however, these products will do just as good of a job cleaning your hair extensions without stripping the hair of moisture.

Always be sure to do one simple thing before you buy any product…flip it over! Many products out there have sulfates and alcohol hidden in their formulas. Not all companies claiming to make sulfate-free shampoos are truly free of sulfates. This is why it is important to know what to look for when reading ingredients.

Additionally, using sticky products such as hair spray, hair gel, or hair wax, can and likely will clog up your extensions. Furthermore, the more products you use, the more you will need to wash them. Remember, over washing leads to dry and tangled extensions. Also, keep in mind that the products that you use in your natural hair can travel onto your extensions from constant head movement and heat from your scalp.

 

How To Properly Brush Hair Extensions and Wigs

 

Make sure that you are always gentle with your extensions and that you brush them properly as this can also affect their lifespan. First, gather all the hair together by stacking all of the wefts on top of one another. Then, carefully brush out the extensions from the bottom of the hair slowly working upwards towards the root.

If you come across a particularly pesky knot, take out the individual weft and brush it through gently. Never brush the extensions when they are wet as this is when it is the most susceptible to breakage. Instead, brush them before washing or once they are 90% dry.

For brushing, we recommend using the Loop Hair Extensions Brush. Alternatively, you can also use a wide-tooth comb or a soft bristle brush. The Loop Hair Extensions Brush is designed specifically for the use of all different types of hair extensions, as it has unique nylon “looped” bristles that easily glide through the hair and remove any tangles.

It won’t cause pilling, snagging, or damage to your wefts, which you may otherwise experience with a regular hairbrush.

 

Preventing Hair Extensions And Wigs Tangling

While Malaysia Hair Imports Hair extensions are made of 100% Remy human hair, matting, and tangling is a normal occurrence with not just your natural hair but will all types of hair extensions.

This can happen due to a lack of constant brushing, weather, or dryness. A common reason why extensions tangle and get matted throughout the day is because of a combination of sweat, heat, and friction.

Also, keep in mind that when human hair is constantly moving around it mattes or ‘clumps’ together in pieces and should be brushed consistently to avoid this. During the day, we generate heat at the back area of our nape and scalp, and often times we sweat back there too.

Your sweat is salty and acidic which can dry out your hair extensions. When you add additional hair volume to this combination and constantly move your head throughout the day, tangling and matting will occur.

Weather can also contribute to tangling, whether it is due to the wind, humidity, or heat. Humidity adds moisture to the environment, causing hair to frizz and tangle.

The heat will do just the opposite as it will dry it out. Thankfully, there are some simple ways to ensure that your Malaysia Hair Imports Hair extensions and wigs remain smooth and tangle-free.

First, be sure to brush the extensions periodically throughout the day with the Loop Hair Extensions Brush. Alternatively, you can also use a wide-tooth comb or a soft bristle brush. Always have a brush on hand so that you can give your hair a quick brushing. If it’s a particularly windy day, you can tie your hair up.

Along with brushing your hair to prevent matting and tangling, starting at the source and using proper hair care products make all the difference in whether extensions will tangle or be soft and manageable.

Use products specifically formulated for dry and damaged hair, as they will help keep the strands healthy and nourished. Also, look for ingredients that add moisture to the hair-like argan oil, coconut oil, castor oil, and so on. Purchasing sulfate-free and alcohol-free products is a necessity.

These ingredients strip the hair of its natural oils and will affect their integrity. This, in turn, makes the hair drier and more prone to tangling or matting.

 

How to Reduce Hair Shedding

Just like your natural hair, extensions will shed. Shedding is a common occurrence with hair extensions and because they are made of human hair, you can expect some shedding throughout their lifespan.

As you brush and style your Luxies, some fall-out may occur so don’t be surprised or worried when this happens. This, however, does not mean to reduce the amount you brush your extensions as you can minimize shedding in other ways. Keep in mind, extensions are more likely to shed when they are dry and brittle.

The first and quite possibly one of the most important steps is to brush your extensions out before washing them and only once the hair is 90% dry. This helps minimize the possibility of breakage and shedding during the washing and because the hair is at its weakest point when wet. Always be gentle when brushing your extensions and be sure to brush them before and after each use to reduce shedding and breakage.

Washing your extensions too much or using products that contain sulfates and alcohol will strip the hair of its natural oils which will likely cause them to shed. Additionally, using a high temperature when heat styling runs the risk of damaging the hair which can then cause breakage and shedding. This is why we recommend to only use a low heat setting of 120C/250F. While o

ur own hair may be able to handle a high heat setting, our hair is also constantly getting revitalized from the scalp, whereas hair extensions don’t receive the same amount of nutrients or oil in order to look silky and shiny.

Also, take into consideration that the more products you use, the more you will need to wash your extensions, so the best way to reduce shedding is to use a minimal number of products.

Your extensions have a beautiful, healthy finish already so you shouldn’t need much product to enjoy them. If you want more hold when curling your extensions, try pinning up the curls and leaving them overnight or even just for an hour to ensure the curls stay in place without the use of hairspray. If you do want to reach for hairspray, consider a lightweight formula that you can still easily brush through. Extra strength hair sprays will clog up your extensions, which means more washing.

 

 

How Often Should I Wash my Human Hair Extensions and Wigs?

Since your extensions aren’t subject to the oils produced by your scalp the way your natural hair is, you don’t have to wash them as often. As a general rule, the less you wash your extensions the longer they will last. You can use your best judgment on how often to wash them, however, we recommend only washing them once there is a lot of product build-up.

If your extensions feel like they’re becoming increasingly difficult to style, this is likely a sign that there is product build-up and they need to be washed. We recommend washing them after every 7 wears or once a week.

 

Washing your Hair Extensions

When washing your extensions, it’s important you hydrate them as much as possible. Since hair extensions don’t receive the natural nutrients and oils as our own hair does, it’s important to ensure that your set is always nourished and moisturized by using alcohol and sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners. Sulfate and alcohol strip the hair of its natural oils which, in turn, makes the hair drier and more prone to tangling or matting.

We highly recommend applying a moisturizing sulfate-free and alcohol-free conditioner before and after shampooing. Sometimes, even skip the shampoo and only co-wash your extensions with conditioner! When washing, make sure to handle the extensions gently and to not rub them vigorously. Always be sure to rinse the extensions in cold water at the end to lock in moisture. After you are finished, carefully squeeze any excess water from the extensions and make sure that you never rub your extensions dry with a towel.

 

Drying Hair Extensions

We don’t recommend blow-drying your extensions after every wash as doing this constantly will make them dry and more vulnerable to breakage. If you must blow-dry your extensions, be sure to use a heat protectant spray prior to blow-drying to extend the lifespan of your hair extensions.

If you need to use your extensions immediately after washing them, the most important thing is to ensure that you are blow-drying on a cool setting to prevent any heat damage and that you don’t brush the hair until it is 90% dry. This is because the hair is at its weakest point when it’s wet. Instead, use your fingers to gently loosen any tangles.

When blow-drying, start by focusing on drying the root of the weft first and then working your way down to the ends. Always blow-dry downwards as this will help to not only smooth the cuticle but it will also prevent the hair from getting tangled since it is being blown in lots of different directions.

 

We highly recommend air-drying your extensions wherever possible. When air drying, be sure to invest in a micro-fiber towel as it will remove excess water faster and it won’t rough up the hair (which can also cause tangles).

Layout all of the wefts on a flat surface and gently pat the excess moisture from the hair. A trick to preventing any frizz once the hair dries is to apply a small amount of hair oil to each weft to ensure the hair remains manageable and silky smooth.

Hair Care Instructions For All Our Hair Extensions

1. Brush Daily

The hair should be brushed 1-2 times with an hair extension brush on a daily basis. Hold the hair with your other hand so that you don’t put too much strain on your own roots.

2. Moisturize Daily

You should always use a hair tip serum on the ends of your hair and an anti-frizz product is a must. This product works to prevent hair from breaking and is part of the daily care routine.

3. Hair Washing Tips

Before you wash your hair, you will have to prepare your hair extensions: first, gently run your fingers through your hair to disentangle any small knots. Then, carefully brush your hair with a soft brush.

Do not wash hair with water that is too hot. Never flip your hair upside down to wash it. If you have hair that is 50 cm long or longer, then we recommend that you wash your hair once or twice a week. Comb the hair well with the special extensions brush and loosen any knots before washing (they’ll just get worse while washing). Cleanse the scalp with a mild shampoo.

Do not rub the hair, otherwise it will become tangled. Thoroughly rinse out the shampoo. Follow with a hair conditioner; use balm only on the ends. The washing process should be kept as short as possible because too much water dries out the extensions.

Do you have keratin bonds or tape-in extensions that are securely in place? Then you can use the shower to wash your hair. The water streaming down from above will act like a comb. The hairs will remain smooth and tangle-free.

To give your hair extensions the best care, turn the showerhead to medium pressure and gently work in the shampoo using your fingers as a comb. Unlike a head massage or circular movements, your hair will not be able to get tangled this way.

Gently pat your hair dry with a towel and without rubbing it. Complete the hair treatment with our conditioning spray. Your hair and your extensions will be easy to brush and will have a nourished sheen.

4. Blow Drying Your Extensions 

While blow-drying, loosen the hair of knots by running your hands through your hair. Once the hair is already a little dry, it can be brushed more easily. That is not possible when hair is wet. Great hair care products for your beautiful hair are available right here directly from us.

5. Styling Your Hair Extensions

When styling with a hair dryer, straightening iron or curling iron, make sure not to expose the adhesives to too much heat as they may loosen. Always use a heat protection spray to protect the hair from heat damage. If you would like to perm your hair extensions, only use gentle products.

6. Swimming With Hair Extensions

Contact with chlorine water and salt water must be avoided as this will damage the hair. If you do come in contact with it, we will not assume any guarantee. If you want to nonetheless go for a swim in the swimming pool or the sea, put your hair up in a bun using an elastic band and preferrably, use a swimming cap. The same applies for taking a bath at home – watch out for bath oils.

7. Colouring Your Hair Extensions

The hair has already been brightened and should therefore, not be bleached any further.

You should ideally color our hair using tint. This way, you will have your desired hair color in a gentle but effective way. Tinting is much gentler than dyeing because tint does not include ammoniac but only natural ingredients, which do not damage the hair.

The color particles in these products do not penetrate the hair but rather sit on top of the it. Tint has a positive electrical charge which attracts the negative charge of the hair. This effect is even more intense with wet hair. That is why you should add tint to your hair after you have washed it.

Remember that the color will be more intense if the original color is on the lighter side.

Tinting is meant for darkening hair 2 to 3 shades. We do not recommend lightening the hair. The hair found in the Premium line still has a naturally intact hair cuticle, which can be colored just as you own hair can. That way, you are able to exactly match the hair color.

Please carefully read the information on the tinting package you are using. It is advisable to try out the tint on just one hair strand first to see how much time you will need for the color to set for a perfect result.

Afterwards, you can color the rest of your hair. Take into consideration that each treatment will cause damage to the hair structure. You should therefore reduce such treatments to a minimum in order to enjoy your human hair extensions for a long time to come.

Tips For Your Permanent Tape-in Hair Extensions and Keratin Bonds

Permanent hair extensions that use glue require a slightly different approach to hair during the first 24 hours. After applying the extensions, you should not wash your hair for at least 24 hours and preferably, not brush it to allow the glue to completely set (bonds / tapes).

You should never comb your hair, especially when it is wet, as this can cause your own hair to break. Allow at least your roots with the adhesives to dry before gently working your way through your hair and extensions with a brush. 

To carefully brush the hair, you need a special extension hairbrush that gently detangles the hair and does not damage the bonds or tapes. Always start at the tips of your hair while brushing and carefully work your way up to the roots. Hold your hair at your head so as to avoid pulling too much on the adhesives.

Do not wash your hair upside down when you have extensions as this can cause knots and tangling. Hair with extensions should be washed a maximum of 3x per week. Only apply alcohol-free shampoo diluted with water to the adhesives.
