How To Wash Hair Extension
How to wash hair extensions your Malaysia Hair Imports Hair extensions and Wigs are made with 100% Remy human hair, however, since they don’t receive natural oils from the scalp as our own hair does, they don’t need to be washed as often as your own hair. 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 every week or once a month.
Step 1: Brush your hair extensions
The first and quite possibly one of the most important steps is to brush your extensions out before getting them wet. This helps minimize the possibility of tangling during and after you have washed the hair.
When brushing your extensions, we recommend starting from the bottom to top in order to gently remove any tough knots without pulling the hair out. We recommend using a wide-tooth comb or a soft bristle brush when working on your extensions.
In preparation for the wash, neatly place your wefts on top of each other in a bundle, similar to the same way as when you first received them. This will help ensure the hair does not tangle with the clips during the washing process.
Step 2: Prepare your water for your Hair Extensions
Ensure your lukewarm water – we don’t want the water to be too hot or too cold.
Squirt about 2-3 pumps or a small handful of shampoo into the water and wave the water around to ensure the product is evenly dispersed. When working with your extensions, we recommend using hair products that are alcohol-free, sulfate-free, and designed for colored treated hair or extensions in order to ensure the color is preserved.
Step 3: Shampoo each hair weft extensions
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!
Wash each weft one at a time, to prevent tangling and to ensure each weft is washed thoroughly. If you are short on time, you can bundle the extensions with an elastic and wash them carefully in one shot.
Hold the weft is one hand at the top, submerge it into the water, and gently wash the hair, working the shampoo in with light strokes. When washing, make sure to handle the extensions gently and to not rub them vigorously as you would with your natural hair. Once you have washed the weft with shampoo, set it aside neatly on a towel and repeat the same steps for the rest of the wefts.
Step 4: Condition each hair weft extensions
Once all the wefts have been shampooed, it’s time to condition them. Take a generous amount of conditioner and apply onto each weft from top to bottom, massaging the product thoroughly into the hair. Leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse out each weft thoroughly. As a general rule, the longer you leave it on the better.
Step 5: Apply a deep conditioner or hair mask
This step is crucial to ensure that your hair extensions remain soft, and moisturized. Just like your conditioner, take a good about of the hair mask and work the product into each weft from top to bottom. In order for the product to really soak in and work its magic, bundle your extensions and carefully coil them and place them in a shower cap to leave overnight. This will help to seal in the moisture throughout the night.
Step 6: Rinse out each weft
The next morning, thoroughly rinse out each weft, ensuring that there is no conditioner residue left on the hair. A common mistake is to only wash the hair halfway, leaving it with “the slip”–that slippery, soft feeling after conditioning. This is a no-no, as it actually leaves product on the hair, which weighs it down or causes it to look greasy when dry.
When washing out each weft, rinse it again with cold water, which will help close the cuticles of the hair to seal in the moisture and make the extensions shinier.
Step 7: Air dry your hair extensions
First, carefully squeeze any excess water from the extensions and make sure that you never rub your extensions dry with a towel. We highly recommend air-drying your extensions whenever 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.
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. 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. 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.
Step 8: Comb each weft
Combing wet hair is usually not recommended as this is when the hair is at its most fragile state, however, in order to ensure that your extensions dry straight, you can make an exception. Gently brush through each weft with a wide-tooth comb from bottom to top.
Leave the wefts to dry, and come back to clean smooth, hair extensions, ready to clip into your hair.
How Often To Wash Your Human Hair Wig
Wigs do not have to be shampooed as often as natural hair. When a human hair wig is washed depends on how often you wear a wig and the type of damage caused when wearing a wig.
If you use styling products like hairsprays, mousses, or gels on your wig every day, you’ll need to wash your wig more often, about once a week. Or it only needs to be washed once every 7 to 10 days if you wore not so often.
Before cleaning the wig, gently comb it to remove any tangles. Start at the top of the hair and go to the bottom of the headband. Be sure to use only combs designed for wigs, such as wide combs. For stubborn tangles, the use of spray conditioners can help loosen them.
People are confused about the cold or warm water used to wash wigs. It is recommended to use warm water (about 77-86 °F) because water above 86 °F will deform the wig and make your wig lose its elasticity. Coldwater does not melt shampoo and conditioner well.
Many salons recommend submersing your human hair wig in a basin of water with a small amount of shampoo. We do not recommend doing so as it can tangle the wig, making it highly unmanageable.
To do so, you can hold the wig under the faucet from your sink (but only if the hair is short). For longer wigs, we recommend holding the wig under the faucet of your bathtub or shower so that the hair does not get tangled in the basin below.
Make your wig full of conditioner and clean enough, turn your wig inside out gently with your fingers and leave the hairpieces to hang naturally. Rinse the unit into the water to make sure every strand of hair is submerged and clean enough. Then gently apply some water into the wig cap. Turning the wig inside out helps to wash every strand’s hair thoroughly and clean your wig cap which is often attached to your head. Never scrub or be aggressive.
After five minutes, rinse the wig with warm water to remove any shampoo residue. Wipe the hair gently with a towel, apply conditioner from the middle to the end, leave it for 3 minutes, then rinse with warm water from start to finish.
Drying & Styling Your human hair wig
Squeeze excess water from the wig and gently dry the hair with a towel (do not rub or wring).
It is best to let your human hair wigs dry on the wig, as this is the softest of the hair fibers. When the wig is wet, try not to brush as this will damage the fibers. If your wig is curly, always use your fingers to “twist” it. Winding up means placing your hand under the hair, lifting it up, and then curling your fingers inward. This will cause the curls to gather and form curls.
Spray with water and leave-in conditioner. Finish off with an oil mist for luster. For curly hair, apply a curl holding/defining product to the wet hair. This will ensure the definition and hold without frizzing hair.
If you are not in a hurry, try not to use a hairdryer. If you have a last resort, the temperature should not be too high.
After completely drying, brush the wig. If the wig is straight or wavy, use the wire wig brush again; if the wig is curled, use a wide-toothed comb from start to finish. Apply tangled products if needed.
Re-curl the wig if necessary. Some wigs are made from naturally curled hair. Other wigs are made from straight hair curled by a curling iron. The latter wig loses curl after cleaning.
