Essential Aftercare for Your Hair Extensions

At Swank hair collections, we understand that the beauty of hair extensions goes beyond the installation. Proper aftercare is key to ensuring your extensions stay beautiful, healthy, and vibrant for as long as possible. Here's a helpful guide to maintain your luscious locks:

Daily and Weekly Hair Extension Care

  1. Prevent Tangles: Gently brush your hair extensions before bed and before washing. This helps prevent tangling and ensures smooth, manageable hair.

  2. Detangling: Use a wide-tooth comb or a paddle brush to carefully remove any knots. Start from the ends and work your way up to avoid unnecessary stress on the hair.

  3. Choose the Right Products: Opt for sulphate and paraben-free shampoos and conditioners. These ingredients can dry out your extensions, leading to split ends and frizz. Remember, your extensions don't receive natural oils from your scalp like your own hair does.

  4. Conditioning: After shampooing, apply a generous amount of conditioner. Rinse thoroughly and gently pat dry. Comb with a wide-tooth comb and, if possible, let your hair extensions air dry. For an extra moisture boost, apply Swank Argan oil to damp hair.

  5. Washing Technique: When washing, handle your extensions gently. Wash in a downward motion using your palms. Avoid scrubbing or bunching the hair to prevent damage.

  6. Deep Conditioning: Treat your extensions to a deep conditioning mask monthly. If they feel dry, a spritz of leave-in conditioner can provide a lasting moisture infusion.

What to Avoid

  • Over-washing: Just like natural hair, washing extensions too frequently can lead to dryness. Aim for a balanced routine.
  • Dry Shampoo: Avoid using dry shampoo on extensions. It can lead to matting and tangling.
