The Dos and Don’ts of Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are and always have been one of the most popular ways of styling hair. As such, you’ll find and hear a great number of tips on how to care for hair extensions. The only problem with a lot of this advice is it’s far less useful than it sounds. In fact, many people make big mistakes with the care of their hair extensions, causing them to last not nearly as long as they should! To keep you from making the same errors, we’ve put together this article on what to do and what not to do when caring for and wearing your hair extensions.

DO Keep Up with Maintenance

If you don’t check up on your extensions on a regular basis, they’re far more likely to accumulate extensive damage. No one wants to wear damaged extensions and risk making their hair look terrible. We recommend taking a trip to see your stylist at a minimum of six week intervals. They can help keep an eye on your extensions for signs of splitting and other woes.

DON’T Overuse Your Extensions

Extensions are versatile and can even be a lifesaver, but there can always be too much of a good thing. Partial cap extensions are generally damage-free, but wearing them too often can still create lasting effects for your scalp. Many celebrities who’ve relied on extensions on a frequent basis now find themselves balding and the damage to their natural hair too extensive to reverse. Let your hair air out every so often and you and your scalp will both be happier for it!

DO Research Your Stylist Before Booking an Appointment

You don’t want to get to the salon only to realize your stylist has no knowledge whatsoever of how to work with and how to care for hair extensions. A stylist who’s never worked with extensions won’t be any more competent in managing them than you are, putting you at risk for damage. At best, you may wind up with extensions that aren’t blended well into your hair, which never looks good.

DON’T Wait Until a Special Occasion to Start Using Extensions

It takes time to get the hang of wearing extensions. You’ll want to adjust to them before you have any big events to attend, if only to prevent any awkwardness on your part. As with any new hair care routine, you want to be sure your extensions are not only comfortable, but safe to wear. Some people have suffered bad allergic reactions to the products used to secure extensions in place.

DO Try and Stick to Clip-ins As Much As You Can

Clip-in extensions are the safest varieties of hair extensions you can find. They’re also incredibly versatile and easy to install and remove, making them great for beginners. Maintenance is also a cinch; all you need is a bit of the best shampoo for weaves and you’re solid!

Extension Tips for Workouts

Do you know how to care for hair extensions when working out?

Hair extensions require special care before, during and after workouts.

Do you worry exercising and leading an active lifestyle will ruin your beautiful hair extensions? It doesn’t have to be that way. With quality hair care and utilizing a few easy styles, your hair extensions will still look great, even after an intense workout.

Here are a few tips and styles for hair extensions during and after your workouts.


A high ponytail is a simple way to keep the hair out of your face and off your neck while you exercise. You can wear a headband with your ponytail or use hair pins and clips to keep your hair in place. Remember not to pull too hard or make your ponytail too tight. You should keep your ponytail loose enough so your hair can breathe. A ponytail that is too tight can create extra stress on your extensions and lead to slippage. In addition, tight ponytails can trap in excess moisture and sweat.

High Bun

A high bun will work similarly to a ponytail in keeping your hair out of the way. If you have long extensions, your bun will be even more stylish since it will be large and full. To create a bun, gather your extensions into a ponytail, then twist the ponytail around to form a bun on top of your head. Use pins to keep the bun secure. An added bonus to wearing a bun is when you take it down after your workout, you will have nice waves.

French Braid

If you do not know how to French braid, you should take the time to learn. It is quite simple after you have learned the technique. Your French braid doesn’t need to be neat or perfectly done for the gym. If your extensions are layered and some hair is shorter than the rest, you can use hair pins to keep your hair out of your face.

Remove Clip-In Extensions

While many women wear extensions that are sewn in or bonded with glue, others go for the simpler application of clip-ins. If you wear clip-in extensions, it is easy to take them out before you exercise. After your workout, you can go back to your long, full hair by easily clipping them back in.

Wear a Swim Cap

If swimming is part of your regular workout routine, make sure to wear a swim cap to help you avoid frizz. A swim cap may be ugly or unsightly but so are the tangled, frizzy extensions you will have if you don’t properly protect them from the chlorinated water. You should also wear a swim cap if you use a sauna or steam room.

Proper Post-Workout Hair Care

Finally, don’t neglect your hair extensions after you exercise. You may be tired, but take the time to use the best shampoo and conditioner for extensions as soon as possible. If you have gone swimming, use a deep conditioner once a week to help rid your extensions of chlorine damage.
