Best Practices for Properly Storing Human Hair Extensions

Human hair extensions are a great way to add volume and length to your natural hair. They come in different colors, textures and lengths. However, just like natural hair, human hair extensions require proper care and maintenance to maintain their quality and longevity.

One common question that people have is how to store their human hair extensions properly. In this blog post, we will provide you with some useful tips on how to store your human hair extensions safely.

Clean Your Human Hair Extensions

Before storing your human hair extensions, it is essential that you clean them thoroughly. You can use shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for human hair extensions or mild sulfate-free shampoo.

Make sure you carefully rinse out all the product from the extensions before air-drying them completely using a towel or a blow dryer on low heat setting. Never leave them wet as this may cause molds or bacteria growth which may lead to damages over time.

Dry Them Completely

Once you have cleaned the human hair extension thoroughly make sure they are dry before storing them so they don’t attract any dirt particles that might accumulate during storage leading of discoloration of ends.

A good method for drying the extension is by placing it on a towel inside out then rolling tightly while squeezing excess water gently from top down until moisture reduces substantially then allowing 24hrs air dry at room temperature free from direct sunlight exposure

Choose The Right Storage Solution

The right storage solution can make all the difference when it comes to keeping your human hair extensions safe. There are several options available depending upon personal preference like wig stands (best option), mannequin head or hangers but always be mindful of what materials used if in contact with hairspray/perfume oils these might damage its texture permanently .

You must also consider where you intend o keep it ideally choose an area away from direct heat and sunlight exposure. Humidity can also have an adverse effect on the extensions, so it’s best to keep them in dry environments.

How To Store Them

Once you have chosen your storage solution, make sure that your human hair extensions are neatly organized and not twisted or knotted which will cause damages over time especially if placed with other items like jewelry. Placing them inside a silk bag helps minimize friction hence less chances of tangling

If possible, it is recommended to store each extension separately especially when longer than 18 inches as the weight might put much tension on roots leading to breakage thus shorter wefts can be stored together in one container only If there is limited space for storage.

Maintain Your Human Hair Extensions Regularly

Storing your human hair extensions properly is just one part of maintaining their quality and longevity. You should also regularly brush (using a loop-brush)and comb (using wide-toothed comb)them gently; at least twice per week starting from tips then moving upward towards scalp while holding top section firmly during brushing process.

Tangling may occur more frequently as the hair grows outwards from roots but preventive measures such as application of leave-in conditioner or detangling spray would help eliminate this issue.

In conclusion, storing human hair extensions properly requires careful attention to detail, but it’s worth it in order to maintain their quality and longevity. Follow these tips mentioned above will ensure that you enjoy beautiful-looking natural-looking hairstyles all year long!
