A Step-by-Step Guide to Washing Your Hair Extensions

Hair extensions look great and are ready-to-wear out of the box, but after a few times of being exposed to environmental pollution and hair products, they need to be washed. The best Egyptian-wave Bohyme hair extensions feature the finest, 100% natural human hair. The hair is healthy and beautiful and will stay that way with careful washing and a little TLC. Read on for tips about how to wash your Bohyme hair extensions.

Don’t Wash Hair Extensions Daily

The best Bohyme hair extensions can be washed a few times a week, but the least amount of washing will assure your extensions will last a long time.

Suggested Hair Products

Egyptian-wave Bohyme hair extensions offer loose and gentle waves that shouldn’t be weighed down with heavy thickening shampoos or conditioners. Choose a gentle, nourishing, shampoo and conditioner that you would use on your specific hair and skin type. Ensure longevity for your low-maintenance Bohyme hair extensions with paraben-free shampoo and conditioner. If your hair extensions are colored, you must use a shampoo specifically designated for color-treated hair.

Step 1 – Gently Brush the Extensions

It’s very important to brush the hair extensions to remove any tangles. Begin at the bottom and work to the top. This should alleviate shedding of the hair. Using a wide toothbrush with soft bristle, ceramic wig, or rubber tipped brush, should offer the best results for your Egyptian-wave wefts.

Step 2 - Prepare Your Sink

Thoroughly clean the sink you will use for washing your hair extensions. Make sure there is no soap or cleaning chemical residue in the sink. Fill the sink with lukewarm water. Add one tablespoon of shampoo into the water and swish it around to be certain it is completely dissolved. 

Step 3 – Cleanse Each Weft

Divide your set of hair extensions into small groups. This will ensure that each weft gets thoroughly cleaned. Hold the group of wefts at the top and immerse completely in the water. Stroke the shampoo into the hair gently with your fingers. Don’t use a circular motion or the hair may tangle. Set aside on a clean towel as you repeat the procedure on the remaining wefts.

Step 4 – Rinse the Wefts

Rinse each group of wefts in cool water two or three times until completely rinsed of any shampoo residue. Change the water frequently so no soap remains on the hair. Another method is to give them a gentle rinsing in the shower.

Step 5 – Conditions the Extensions

Your hair extensions will remain soft and healthy if you properly condition the hair. Each weft needs to be properly nourished and moisturized. Apply a generous amount of conditioner, and gently massage it into the hair from top to bottom. Set the weft on a clean towel and leave it for an hour if possible to seal in the moisture. After a time, rinse the conditioner thoroughly from each strand with cold water. The hair shouldn’t feel greasy after rinsing.

Applying Hair Extensions

Step 6 – Air Dry the Extensions

Lay the hair extensions out on a clean towel. Your hair extensions will stay healthy and last longer if you let them air dry naturally. If you experience any frizziness of the hair, you can apply a small amount of hair oil to each strand. Using a hair dryer can result in shedding or damage of the weaves. If you are pressed for time and must use a hair dryer, you need to apply a heat protectant on each strand to prevent damage. Use a low temperature setting and gentle blowing with a hair dryer.

Step 7 – Comb Each Weft

The hair is prone to damage and can break easily if combed while wet. Once they have dried completely, brush through each weft gently. It’s best to use a wide-toothed comb. Start at the bottom and work up to the top.
