How to Care for Your Hair Pieces

Hair pieces can give you the look and feel of real, beautiful hair, without undergoing any drastic procedures. These hair systems can help women with all different hair colors and textures get the look and feel they have always wanted.

Once you have discovered the perfect hair piece for your hair type, you would do anything to make it last as long as possible. Through constant use, you can begin to notice wear. To help you combat and prevent this issue, we have compiled a few care tips that will help increase the lifespan of your hair piece.

1. Store Your Hair Pieces in a Box

When storing your hair pieces, be sure they are tucked away in a box.

Typically, when you purchase a hair piece, it will come in a box. This box not only serves as packaging, but can help you increase the lifespan of your locks.
With each wear, your hair piece will tangle. Letting your hair tangle again and again will only cause more damage, therefore shortening its lifespan. After removing your hair piece, brush it out completely before storing it away. Brush your hair piece from the bottom up to ensure the least amount of damage possible.

2. Keep a Brush with You at All Times

Throughout the day, your own hair and your hair piece rub together. This friction causes your hair to tangle. As mentioned before, the more you let your hair tangle, the rougher you will have to treat it to get it back to its best shape.

By keeping a brush in your purse, you will be able to quickly comb through your hair before your hair gets too tangled. By brushing your hair piece every time you visit the restroom, you can increase its lifespan by months.

3. Try Not to Sleep with Hair Pieces in

For those with clip in hair pieces, try to remove them before hitting the pillow. Tossing and turning with your hair pieces will only cause more friction, leading to tangles.

Removing and brushing your hair pieces before you sleep will not only save you time in the morning, but also help you keep your hair piece as healthy as possible.

4. Don’t Swim or Shower with Your Hair Piece

Getting your hair extension wet while still in your hair can be very problematic. Your hair can mix in with the hair piece, making it extremely difficult and painful to remove.

With 100% Remy human hair, you can wash your hair, but it’s important that you wash it separate from your own hair. This will prevent tangling, and ensure a better overall wash.

5. Wash and Use a Deep Conditioning Treatment

To help keep your current hair piece in its best condition or to restore an old hair piece, try using a deep conditioning treatment when you wash.

Wash your hair piece fully with a non-abrasive shampoo. After fully rinsing out the shampoo, apply a deep conditioning treatment to the ends of your hair piece and let it sit over night. Wash out in the morning and let air dry. This will leave your hair silky smooth and healthy.
