You can use the box that came with the hair, or any regular airtight box. Make sure your clip on hair extensions are tangle free and clean before you store them.Follow the following steps for storing the extensions in a box.First, brush the hair gently and make sure it’s nice and smooth. Stack the pieces on top of each other and roll them together. Brush them one more time and finally twist the hair and place into the box. Close the box and put it in your closet, drawer, or shelf.
The great thing about Clip in hair extensions is that since they’re not attached to your scalp, they don’t absorb the oils your natural hair would so you don’t have to wash them as often. Wash your clip in hair extensions depending on how often you wear them.Avoid washing in salt or chlorinated water.Use sulphate free shampoo.
Use hydrating conditioner in order to replenish your hair extensions with as much moisture as possible and to keep them looking healthy and shiny. After washing and conditioning allow extensions to air dry.
Brush your extensions regularly to keep them free from tangles and knots. Make sure you brush your extensions every time you apply and remove them and never sleep with your extensions in as this will result in tangling of hair.
Don’t use heat tools too often. Just like with natural hair, too much mechanical heat will damage hair. When you do use heat tools, be sure to use a heat protectant. Keep your hair extensions moisturised especially when you style them frequently.
