In a slow motion, wash the extensions from the top down while gently working the shampoo in, then rinse. Apply the conditioner to the mid shaft of the hair, all the way to then ends, working through the hair to help avoid tangles.
According to RPZL, it's critical to wash human hair extensions with only sulfate- or paraben-free shampoo specifically on the roots. To help soften and detangle, try Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Sulfate Free Shampoo ($31; bumbleandbumble.com). RPZL also recommends not infusing the hair in either salt or chlorinated water. Let's be real, that's extremely difficult in the summertime, which is why we're suggesting Barracuda Aquia Dechlorinating Shampoo ($7; amazon.com), a 2-in-1 formula that clarifies hair while also eliminating chlorine odor. Additionally, avoid bedtime with a wet head (a dry braid or pigtails overnight is ideal) and treat your extensions with care—no pulling or tugging. Try the Spornette Large Super Looper Brush ($12; birchbox.com) to gently brush and detangle without creating further damage.
Is there a difference when taking care of clip-ins vs. more permanent extensions? The answer is yes.

When it comes to real extensions, it's important to wash and style more frequently. "Permanent extensions stay on your hair anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months. Therefore, you need to follow the specific instructions from your stylist before leaving the salon."Always follow the maintenance plan given to you by your stylist but here are some tips on how to keep your hair extensions beautiful and long lasting.

Styling It is better to avoid heat. Heat is your one of your hair's biggest enemy, the more you use it, the shorter your hair extensions will last. Be careful with the use of blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons. Do not use hot tools directly on the tape tabs of your Tape In extensions. It will weaken the adhesive and they will fall out. It is best to let your hair dry naturally. Use a special brush for hair extensions when brushing your hair (soft bristle brush). It is best to start at the ends of your hair and when all tangles are removed gently work your way up. Always brush in a downward motion. Brush your hair a few times a day. Hair styling products Use a good (leave-in) conditioner to keep your hair soft. Don't over do it. To much conditioner or any other hair care product can cause a build up and tangling. Avoid hair products that contain alcohol. Alcohol makes hair dry. Confirm with your stylist that all styling products (including shampoo and conditioner) that you use are OK. Hair Oils Be careful with hair oils such as Argan oil, Coconut oil and other essential oils. It can be wonderful for your hair but when it comes in touch with the bonds of for example Tape Ins it can deteriorate the attachment and the hair can slip out. Use hair oils only from the mid-shaft down. Hair treatments When you would like to perm or color your hair, don't do it yourself. Let your extension stylist take care of all chemical treatments you would like to do. Sleeping DON'T sleep on wet hair. Make sure that your hair is completely dry when you go to sleep. A good habit is to tie your hair together in a ponytail to prevent tangling as much as possible. It is recommended NOT to sleep with Clip In hair extensions. It can damage your own hair. Exercise Avoid long exposure to chlorine and salt water. Chlorine and salt water can cause the hair to tangle and mat up. It is recommended to wear a swim cap if possible or wear your hair up to keep it out of the water. After swimming it is best to shampoo and condition your hair immediately. In general it is a good habit to wear your hair up or in a ponytail when you exercise. Summer Care During summer your hair extensions can use some extra care. Sun, salty water and chlorine can really damage your hair make it tangle. It can also make the bonds and tape fragile. When you use skin and sun care products make sure not to come too close to the bonds or tape.
