You should use special shampoo and conditioner for your hair extensions. When choosing products for cleaning the hair, it’s important to know that there are ones specially designed for it.

Also, the way you wash your hair extensions is also a decisive factor. Remember that the way to wash your natural hair and the way to wash hair extensions is not the same. This is wash you should do. First, soak the wig in shampoo and water, then use a wig comb to comb the shampoo or conditioner out of the wig. After that, rinse the wig with warm water until the product is all out. Finally, comb the wig until it is untangled and let it naturally dry. Keep in mind that when you wash it, you shouldn’t need to rub or massage it, just combing is enough.
