How to Properly Wash Human Weft Hair Extensions

Let the cold water run through your hair from root to tip until it fully gets wet. Gently squeeze to remove excess water. Apply a small amount of wig shampoo in the palm of your hand and smooth it into your hair extensions from root to tip. Use cold water to gently rinse all the shampoo off your hair. Then Use a towel to gently pat your hair to remove excess water before conditioning. 

Condition and Dry After Wash Human Weft Hair Extensions

After wash human weft hair extensions, when your hair extensions are still wet, apply a small amount of hair conditioner to them. You should try your best to avoid applying conditioner to the base of the wig as it can loosen the hair knots, causing hair strands to fall out. Leave the hair conditioner on your hair for about 5 minutes. Then, you gently detangle your hair extensions from the roots to the tips. Rinse the conditioner out of your hair with cold running water. Gently squeeze the excess water out of the wig (do not curl or wring) and gently dry the hair with a towel (do not twist or wrist).


Drying after wash human weft hair extensions have to be done with care to prevent any unwanted damage to your human hair extensions. Then lay your wig down onto one side of a towel, and bring the other side of the towel over so that there is a towel over and under your wig. Gently press your hands over the towel to encourage excess moisture to leave the wig and be absorbed by the towel. This should help to take away enough moisture that your wig is no longer dripping wet.

Style after Wash Human Weft Hair Extensions

You can brush your hair extensions when it is dried completely. Brush the wig from the ends to avoid tangle. If your hair is curly, you can use the wide-tooth comb.

The hairstyle is not as good as what is before you wash human weft hair extensions. You can use the curling iron to make some curls or flat iron straighten your wig. All these curls will be lost when you wash your hair again, so you can do the same easily. When you use the iron, please set the proper temperature.

Using a wig doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of your own hair. Your real hair is covered inside your wig, so when your hair keeps well, it is good for your wig. While your hair is dry, not too much oil, the wig can keep longer on your head without clean.
