With clip in extensions, you want to wash them in a sink to ensure you get all of the shampoo out of them, but you don’t want to wash them every day as that will cause them to dry out faster.

2. CONDITION YOUR CLIP IN EXTENSIONS

After cleaning your extensions, you will want to apply a small amount of conditioner every other day and it should be applied gently with a comb.

Conditioner is a great way to keep your extensions from drying out, but never use a leave in conditioner as that will leave your hair looking oily.

When brushing your extensions always use a wide-teeth brush and work from the ends up, slowly working out the knots.
Never rip or pull the hair, as this will cause the hair to become damaged, as well as fall out.

7 Tips to teach You How to Wear a Wig

Many of our customers come to ask us why their wigs are becoming tangled and messed up just after several month using . We just want to tell them no matter how the quality of the wigs is ,they all need to be cared just like our own hair . The following advice maybe can help you .

 

1.How to Put Your Wig On

Gently shake the wig to fluff the style. Identify the front and the back of the wig. The label always goes in the back. Notice the adjustable tabs inside of the wig. They can be adjusted if the fit is too loose or to tight.

Place your wig on a flat surface in front of you so that you are looking down inside of the wig. The label should be at the top (the back of the wig). Grasp the wig by the ear tabs on the side of the wig and flip the wig over the top of your head. Slip the wig on, starting at the front hairline and working towards the back. The front of the wig should sit where your hairline is (approximately 4 finger widths from the top of your eyebrows). Gently rock the wig back and forth until it is sitting on your front hairline. Do not grab the wig by the hairs, but handle the wig from the base of the cap. Be especially careful of hand tied areas and do not pull on these areas when putting on your wig.

7. How to store your wig

  • Place your wig away from heat, dust or any other environmental condition that may cause it damage. It is best to keep your wig in a clean place and in an open space. Only when traveling should a wig be placed in an enclosed area.
  • Store your wig in high places away from pets and children. You don’t want your wig to be ruined by cats using it as a toy or children wanting to play dress up with it.
  • Purchase a wire rack to store your wig. This is an alternative to the Styrofoam head idea. The wire rack will allow for air to circulate throughout your wig and keep it smelling fresh.
  • Place your wig very carefully in a portable travel storage container when you take trips. This type of device can support and protect your wig. This will be best so that the wig does not get crushed or lose its shape during your travels.
