Alexandria, Virginia (webnewswire) June 21, 2019 – Hair By Russians, a Russian hair extensions company, recently published a blog educating readers on how to wash hair extensions. Extensions require special care to prevent them from deteriorating or falling out, and this guide can help you maintain their natural sheen, fullness and beauty for longer.

Hair extensions can cost hundreds of dollars and should therefore be carefully washed and maintained. Improper washing could result in tangled extensions that are painful to brush out. It could also cause an extension to loosen or detach. This could cause you to permanently damage your hair extensions, forcing you to pay for replacements and a visit to a hair salon to have them replaced.

Before washing your hair extensions, comb out tangles with a wide-tooth comb. Then, gradually add water to your hair to moisten it, as soaking the hair can cause it to expand and tangle again. Begin shampooing with a sulfate and silicone free shampoo by adding small amounts to the top of your head and working your way down. Rinse the shampoo out and begin conditioning your hair in the same manner. Too much conditioner will leave your hair feeling heavy, while not enough will deprive it of moisture. Be careful not to put too much conditioner on the bonds of the extensions, which can weaken them or cause buildup. Let the conditioner sit in your hair for a few minutes, wash it out, and gently wrap your hair in a microfiber towel. Squeeze out the excess water without wringing or rubbing your hair, then apply leave-in conditioner and allow your hair to air dry before styling, as blow drying can cause frizz.
