Shampooing your Hair
There are many different types of shampoo. Most people immediately assume the shampoo they use on their own hair will work the same on extensions. When purchasing shampoo for hair extensions, the shampoo should be gentler and contain an additional moisturizer. Before hair is sold to you it should go through a deodorizing and sterilizing process. This process does not damage the hair but it does strip the hair of its natural oils. These natural oils moisturize and protect the hair.
Never use a deep cleaning shampoo on extensions. This type of shampoo can dry and damage the hair. A deep cleaning shampoo can be over drying and damaging to the hair's cuticle. It is important to use a shampoo that will replace any lost natural oils and add moisture to the hair.
