BAD HABIT TO BREAK: “Ball and lathering” can wreck hair extensions.
Unlike clip-ins, bonded extensions need to be treated gently…but still cleansed and conditioned from time to time. Remember, the key to long lasting wear is not stressing the bond…so HOW you cleanse your hair in the shower needs to be gentle. Shampoo and conditioner thoroughly (always with sulfate-free shampoo such as SHE Hair Extensions’ 4U line). Comb your hands through your hair from weft to ends, keeping the hair as straight and smooth as possible. Never “ball and lather” the hair, as ultimately this puts strain on the bond and also leads to a tangled mess.
