Tried & Tested Hair Products That Work On Extensions

Are you a professional hair stylist or someone who loves to use extensions? If so, you may have noticed that not all hair care products are created equal. While some products can work wonders for natural hair, they may not suit hair extensions the same way.

In this blog post we’re going to introduce tried and tested products and ingredients recommended by trusted professional stylists which can be used effectively on extension based hairstyles that can help keep your extensions looking and feeling AMAZING if used in a proper aftercare routine.

Read on to learn more about why choosing the best products are so essential and get our recommendations for aftercare and products that will provide your best results while protecting your precious extensions.


Aftercare is key when it comes to keeping your extensions looking fabulous! Here are a few tips for the right aftercare your extensions needs:

  • Always use proper products to care for hair extensions. Haircare must be paraben and sulphate free in order to avoid stripping the hair of nourishment. 

  • A hair mask is required weekly to keep the hair hydrated and revitalized.

  • Apply hair oil 1-2 times per day to keep the extensions moisturised. 

  • Avoid high protein shampoo and conditioner this will result in drying and matting of the hair and cause breakage.

  • When washing your hair while wearing a weft, make sections by starting at the bottom and working your way to the top. This will help with product and oil build up where the weft is attached.

  • Golden rule - wash your scalp and not your hair & condition your hair and not your scalp.

  • Excessive washing and styling will damage the cuticle and decrease the lifespan of the hair. We recommend that you wash your hair 2-3 times per week and use dry shampoo in between washes.

  • Hair extensions may never be left wet, especially at the root, always dry the roots properly to ensure that the thread and materials used to manufacture the extensions do not retain water and cause swelling which will later result in shedding.

By understanding how important aftercare is, the right products will be worth it all and be able to do their magic!

In conclusion, professional hair products can be amazing, however they don’t always work perfectly with your hair extensions as they do on your own hair. 

Professional hair products such as shampoos, leave-in conditioners, deep conditioners and heat protectant sprays should keep hair extensions hydrated and nourished while providing a layer of protection from the damages of heat styling and environmental factors. 

All in all, if taken care of correctly, with consideration given to what type of product you select, your hair extensions should have wonderful long lasting results. Making sure of your aftercare regime is essential to boost longevity and quality of any extension investment. Finally, let us emphasize once again: if you want healthy and luscious hair extensions, then proper care and maintenance - utilizing quality professional haircare products - is a must!
