To understand why your hair extensions, require six steps to keep them healthy and beautiful you first have to understand what hair extensions are and how they are very different than your natural hair. First, extension hair is dead hair that has been donated or sold by someone before being attached to your hair. Second, extension hair is not rooted in your scalp, therefor extension hair will not receive the oils and nutrients it needs from the scalp that it needs to stay healthy.

Types of Extension Hair
To take the best care of your hair extensions you will need to know what type of hair you have. The highest quality human hair is 100% human, single donor, and ethically sourced. Hair from Eastern Europe are regarded what makes each type of hair extension method unique. the different kinds of hair extension options available. So here we go, the different hair extension types include:
1 - Glamour Locks Cuticle Hair
This is the highest quality human hair available. Glamour Locks Cuticle Hair is 100% human, ethically sourced from Eastern Europe, single donor, and minimally processed. Cuticle Hair will last up to a year before it has to be replaced. If you have Glamour Locks Cuticle Hair you should be using a high quality hair care line like Cuticle Lissé.
2- Remy Hair: The quality of Remy Hair can vary from salon to salon as Remy Hair is a generic term to designate hair that originates from India or Asia. When it comes to Remy Hair, there is a good chance that the hair you are buying is going to be of low quality and will only last a few weeks or a month or two. Even the highest quality Remy Hair will last about six months. Even though this hair is not of the same quality as Cuticle Hair, it should still be treated like human hair and you should still be using a high quality shampoo and conditioner like Cuticle Lissé.
3- Synthetic Hair Extensions: Synthetic Hair extensions are made of plastic or silicone and are generally best used temporarily for a night or two. The hair itself cannot be washed or styled with hot tools and will lose its natural appearance after a few days of wearing them. These should not be washed or brought into the shower. ‘
Tips from Experts for Proper Hair Extension Care
- Washing Your Extensions
Make sure to keep your hair extensions clean and untangled using the right and best quality shampoo and conditioner for extensions like our Cuticle Lisse sulfate-free pH-balanced moisturizing shampoo. We recommend you wash your hair extensions 1 to 2 times a week. If you have oily hair, it is okay to wash every day or every other day. Also, make sure to wash your hair right after a workout session or the jacuzzi. For women with curly hair, our Keratin Shampoo works best. For fine or oily hair, we always recommend our Botanical Hydrating Shampoo.
- Conditioning Your Extensions
Just like washing your extensions, conditioning them is a crucial step in properly caring for them. Because your extensions are not rooted in your scalp, they will not receive the oils and nutrients they need to stay healthy, so conditioner is even more important than if you did not have extensions. Our Silk Smoothing Conditioner is a must-have product for your hair extension care regimen. If you have curly hair, then our Keratin Conditioner is your best bet.
- Brushing the Extensions
Another crucial hair extensions care tip is to brush them on regular basis to keep them tangle-free. Just like your natural hair, hair extensions get tangled if they are not brushed regularly. Also, we suggest that you do not brush your extensions when they are wet as it will weaken the hair strands. Brush them gently from the base and work your way upwards to the attachment point. Be careful not to brush directly on the attachment point as this can cause your extensions ot be come loose. A wide-toothed brush is best to keep the extension from tangling.
