2.) Shampoo, condition, and/or deep condition your hair unit before wearing it. Some companies ship orders directly from their vendors. When shampooing your hair extensions/unit, do not rub your hands to lather the hair. Apply shampoo and gently massage it into the hair in a downward motion to lather the hair. If you wear the same hair unit for at least two weeks, shampoo your extensions every two weeks. Shampoo your extensions once a week if you work out in your hair unit daily. Co-washing is also a great option to clean your hair extensions/units, cowashing should not be a replacement for shampooing. Cowash your hair once per week in between shampoos. You do not need to cowash if you shampoo weekly.

3.) Put conditioner on the hair and gently massage it into the hair to deep condition your hair extensions. Afterward, let the hair sit for 30 minutes. After conditioning and/or deep conditioning, rinse the conditioner out of your hair extensions/unit.

You can use a Styrofoam head, mannequin, or hanger to air dry your extensions. If you want to blow dry your hair, make sure it's detangled and use a heat protectant before applying direct heat from your blow dryer. If you're interested, style it with a heat tool.
