The Right Way To Clean Your Remy Hair Extensions

I will be going on a cruise and I really love my hair. My hair is going to get wet, what should I do?
Remy hair extensions are popular and come with a wide range of quality levels. What is important
that is that you should know what your hair extensions can or cannot handle as far as the use of
styling is concerned.

Regular Cleaning

As hair extensions do not receive natural oils from your scalp like natural hair. This requires some care while washing your hair. As a rule of thumb, the hair should be washed and conditioned after every 3-4 days.

The Steps:

1. Brush hair well before washing to remove any kinds of knots and/or tangles. You can start at the bottom and gently work your way up to the top being cautious not to pull on the hair.
2. Wet your hair as ususal.
3. Apply the conditioner to the hair extensions prior to washing to help maintain the moisture levels. Do not rinse.
4. Apply the shampoo (on top of conditioned hair extensions) and rinse gently.
5. Apply the moisturizing conditioner and rinse
6. Wrap the hair in a towel and allow the towel to absorb moisture. Never rub the towel through hair to dry.
7. Comb your hair carefully to work through any knots and tangles
8. It is best to allow the hair to air dry. Never sleep with wet hair as this causes tangles.

extensions. In general, the more processed the hair extensions, the less they can handle being in
