How Often Should I Wash My Hair With Extensions? 

How to Wash Your Hair When You Have Hair Extensions [Complete Guide]

If you can, we recommend washing your hair 1 or 2 times a week, depending on how long your hair can go between washes. Be aware that washing it more than 3 times a week will shorten the lifespan of your hair extensions. 

Washing Clip-Ins 

Since you don’t need to wear clip-ins 24/7, remove them before washing your hair. You only need to wash clip-ins when they need it, which is usually when they’ve got a build-up of product, such as hair spray.

While we recommend sulfate-free shampoos most of the time, you may want to use one containing sulfates for washing your clip-in extensions since it will more easily remove product build-up. 

Washing your hair with extensions does not need to be intimidating. With these tips, you’ll be well prepared to wash your extensions and keep them looking beautiful for months to come.
