One of the best things about hair extensions is that they can be worn whenever and wherever you want! Hair extensions are an excellent choice for any formal occasion or just for regular every-day use. We do not, however, recommend that you wear extensions while sleeping, swimming or taking a shower, as it may tangle in with your hair and cause damage to both your hair and your extensions.
Wearing hair extensions can easily reduce every-day hair maintenance, enhance the look of your hair and improve the overall appearance, which in return will increase your confidence level.
Halo extensions are best for those who have below shoulder-length hair and have a thin or medium hair type. We do not recommend Halo extensions for those with short hair as you will need more wefts and hair to create a seamless blend. Instead, you can consider our Clip-Ins and Tape in Hair.
Since Luxy Hair extensions are made of 100% remy human hair, they can be cut, trimmed, or layered to any desired length by an experienced hair stylist.
If you decide to get them cut, we recommend having them already clipped into your hair during the haircut. We also recommend coming up with a numbering system for the wefts, so that you know exactly where each weft is supposed to go for future uses.
We do not recommend bleaching (this includes highlights) hair as they have already been dyed at our manufacture, and forcing bleach on hair that has already been dyed can be difficult. Bleaching is a damaging process that will alter the quality and integrity of your set. Increasing the concentration of bleach or leaving it in longer to soak will only lead to damaged hair.
So, you have a beautiful and unique hair color that doesn't quite match any of the shades we offer? No stress! WIGMFG Hair extensions are made of 100% remy human hair and can, therefore, be dyed a darker color or toned by a professional hair colorist. We do not recommend getting Luxies bleached, as bleaching is a harmful process that will alter the quality and integrity of your set.
Purchasing sulfate and alcohol-free products is a necessity as they are imperative to maintain the health of your extensions. These ingredients strip the hair of its natural oils which, in turn, makes the hair drier and more prone to tangling or matting.
Using sticky products such as hair spray, hair gel, or hair wax, can and likely will clog up your extensions and the more products you use, the more you will need to wash your extensions. Remember, over washing equals dry and tangled extensions. Also, keep in mind that the products that you use in your natural hair can travel onto your extensions from constant head movement and heat from your scalp.
You should wash your hair extensions every 30 wears, or when there is major product build up to the point where it becomes unmanageable to style.
You will need...
A large bowl or a sink which can be plugged
Alcohol / sulfate-free shampoo
Alcohol / sulfate-free deep conditioner
Hair Extensions Brush or wide tooth comb
Brush your extensions
One of the most important steps is to brush your extensions out before washing them and only once the hair is 90% dry. This helps minimize the possibility of breakage and shedding because the hair is at its weakest point when wet. Keep in mind it is also more susceptible to breakage when wet. Then, stack each weft neatly on top of each other to keep them tangle-free during the washing process.
Prepare your sink
Ensure your sink is squeaky clean to avoid existing dirt transferring to the extensions, or better yet, gather a large bowl. Then, plug the drain and begin to fill it up with lukewarm water, or fill the bowl up three-quarters full. Be sure that the water is not too hot, as this opens up the hair cuticle and moisture leaves the strand more easily, leading to dry hair.
Pump 2-3 dollops of shampoo into the water, and swish the product around in the water so it's nice and soapy.
Shampoo each weft
We highly recommend applying a moisturizing sulfate-free and alcohol-free conditioner before and after shampooing. Sometimes, even skip the shampoo and only co-wash your extensions with conditioner!
Wash each weft one at a time, to prevent tangling and to ensure each weft is washed thoroughly. If you are short on time, you can bundle the extensions with an elastic and wash them carefully in one shot.
Hold the weft is one hand at the top, submerge it into the water, and gently wash the hair, working the shampoo in with light strokes. When washing, make sure to handle the extensions gently and to not rub them vigorously as you would with your natural hair. Once you have washed the weft with shampoo, set it aside neatly on a towel and repeat the same steps for the rest of the wefts.
Condition each weft
Once all the wefts have been shampooed, it's time to condition them. Take a generous amount of conditioner and apply onto each weft from top to bottom, massaging the product thoroughly into the hair. Leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse out each weft thoroughly. As a general rule, the longer you leave it on the better.
Apply a deep conditioner or hair mask
This step is crucial to ensure that your hair extensions remain soft, and moisturized. Just like your conditioner, take a good amount of the hair mask and work the product into each weft from top to bottom. In order for the product to really soak in and work its magic, bundle your extensions and carefully coil them and place them in a shower cap to leave overnight. This will help to seal in the moisture throughout the night.
Rinse out each weft
The next morning, thoroughly rinse out each weft, ensuring that there is no conditioner residue left on the hair. A common mistake is to only wash the hair halfway, leaving it with "the slip"–that slippery, soft feeling after conditioning. This is a no-no, as it actually leaves product on the hair, which weighs it down or causes it to look greasy when dry.
When washing out each weft, rinse it again with cold water, which will help close the cuticles of the hair to seal in the moisture and make the extensions shinier.
Lay each weft out to air dry
First, carefully squeeze any excess water from the extensions and make sure that you never rub your extensions dry with a towel. We highly recommend air-drying your extensions whenever possible. When air drying, be sure to invest in a micro-fibre towel as it will remove excess water faster and it won’t rough up the hair (which can also cause tangles).
Lay out all of the wefts on a flat surface and gently pat the excess moisture from the hair. A trick to preventing any frizz once the hair dries is to apply a small amount of hair oil to each weft to ensure the hair remains manageable and silky smooth.
If you must blow-dry your extensions, be sure to use a heat protectant spray prior to blow-drying to extend the lifespan of your hair extensions. The most important thing is to ensure that you are blow drying on a cool setting to prevent any heat damage and that you don’t brush the hair until it is 90% dry. When blow-drying, start by focusing on drying the root of the weft first and then working your way down to the ends. Always blow-dry downwards as this will help to not only smooth the cuticle but it will also prevent the hair from getting tangled since it is being blown in lots of different directions.
Comb each weft
Combing wet hair is usually not recommended as this is when the hair is at its most fragile state, however, in order to ensure that your extensions dry straight, you can make an exception. Gently brush through each weft with a wide tooth comb or WIGMFG Hair Loop Hair Extensions Brush from bottom to top.
Leave the wefts to dry, and come back to clean smooth, hair extensions, ready to clip into your hair.
Brush your hair often
The first and quite possibly one of the most important steps is to brush your extensions out before washing them and only once the hair is 90% dry. This helps minimize the possibility of breakage and shedding because the hair is at its weakest point when wet. Keep in mind it is also more susceptible to breakage when wet. Instead, use your fingers to gently loosen any tangles. Always gently brush your extensions before and after each use to reduce shedding and breakage. This will also prolong their lifespan. You can do this by starting at the ends and making your way up to the roots.
Keep your hair extensions moisturized
Purchase products specifically formulated for dry and damaged hair, as they will help keep the strands healthy and nourished. Also, look for products that add moisture to the hair like argan oil, coconut oil, and castor oil. Purchasing sulfate and alcohol-free products is a necessity as they are imperative to maintain the health of your extensions. These ingredients strip the hair of its natural oils and will affect their integrity.
Remove your clip-in hair extensions before sleeping
Clip-in hair extensions should always be removed before sleeping, as they can get extremely tangled throughout the night if worn to bed. Since they only take a few minutes to clip in, and seconds to remove, removing them daily will maintain the integrity of the hair. You can store your hair extensions in the WIGMFG Hair Extensions Carrier, or, neatly coil them and store them in an airtight shoebox or container.
Limit heat styling and always use a heat protectant
We do not recommend blow drying your extensions after every wash as doing this constantly will make them dry and more vulnerable to breakage. If you can avoid it, we highly recommend air drying your extensions for the safest route as this will also prevent against tangles. Also, we always suggest using a heat protectant spray prior to using any heat styling tool to extend the lifespan of your hair extensions. Additionally, we recommend to only use a low heat setting of 120C/250F, as anything higher runs the risk of damaging the hair.
If you need to use your extensions immediately after washing them, the most important thing is to ensure that you are using a cool setting to prevent any heat damage and that you don’t brush the hair until the hair is 90% dry. When blow drying, start by focusing on drying the root of the weft first and then working your way down to the ends. Always blow-dry downwards as this will help to not only smooth the cuticle but it will also prevent the hair from getting tangled since it is being blown in lots of different directions.
We recommend setting your tool at 120C/250F, as anything higher runs the risk of damaging the hair. The reason why we recommend opting for a lower heat setting is because it will prolong the lifespan of your set. While our own hair may be able to handle a high heat setting, our hair is also constantly getting revitalized from the scalp, whereas hair extensions don’t get that sort of nutrition.
We do not recommend to wear your WigMFG Hair extensions outside when it is very windy or rainy as harsh weather conditions can damage your hair - we call this "weather damage". Strong winds can cause your extensions to tangle with your hair, and rain can cause them to become dry. We encourage you to be mindful of weather conditions when wearing them outside to ensure they have a long and healthy lifespan.
