Hair extensions are not only for salon-goers who want to instantly lengthen and style their hair. Individuals struggling with thinning hair often choose hair extensions to combat the look of hair loss and restore volume. If you’ve invested in this hair replacement option, knowing how to care for them will ensure that the extensions last for as long as possible.
- Sleeping with Hair Extensions
Hair extensions can easily become tangled while you’re sleeping if they are left unprotected. To prevent tangling, try loosely tying up your hair, braiding it gently, or wearing a silk scarf over your hair to reduce friction against your pillow while you sleep. Also, never go to bed with damp hair extensions.
- Brushing and Styling Hair Extensions
When you’re brushing your hair extensions, it’s best to use a brush specially designed for hair extensions. The looped shape of the bristles makes them gentle on your hair extensions. Always begin brushing your hair at the ends; as the knots and tangles are brushed out, slowly work your way up your hair. Don’t brush roughly; this puts undue strain on the hair extension attachment. For synthetic hair extensions, always avoid heat from blow dryers and curling or straightening irons. With natural hair extensions, limit the use of heat, as it will weaken the hair extension attachment.
Before washing your hair and extensions, always brush your hair. By eliminating tangles before washing, you’ll prevent extensive knots after washing. Use a gentle shampoo, and avoid shampoos and conditioners that are greasy or contain excessive chemicals. Massage the shampoo through your hair from roots to tips without scrubbing vigorously.
- Swimming with Hair Extensions
Using a swim cap while swimming is the best way to avoid tangles, however, you can also braid your hair to avoid knots. After swimming, leave in the braid while in the shower and rinse out the chlorine or salt. Then, shampoo as usual.
At Hair Restoration of California, we specialize in the gentle application of hair extensions without damaging your natural hair. To meet with one of our skilled hair stylists, call (310) 477-2320.

I am also very grateful that I found them. My hair was starting to thin and it worried me enough to look into the laser therapy. I was skeptical at first but I stayed very consistent with the staff's recommended number of visits. About a month into my treatment, my hair was becoming noticeably thicker and healthier. Since then my hair volume has...

Hair loss is believed by many to be a genetic condition that mostly affects men. In actuality, there is a variety of medical conditions that can lead to hair loss in both men and women. If you are suffering from hair loss, it may help to learn more about these conditions.
- Chemotherapy- For many people undergoing chemotherapy, hair loss is the most traumatic side effect. Chemotherapy patients tend to feel self-conscious about their hair loss, especially if they wish to conceal a cancer diagnosis. Chemotherapy often causes slow shedding of the hair and hair loss on other areas of the body, including the legs, arms, and chest. This loss of hair throughout the body makes it difficult to maintain body heat, adding to the discomfort of chemotherapy. It’s important to note that chemotherapy affects every patient differently, so not everyone will experience hair loss.
- Alopecia- Approximately 30 million women suffer from alopecia-related hair loss, a condition mostly caused by hormonal changes spurred by menopause. Often, alopecia causes facial hair to become coarse and thins hair at the crown of the head. Hormones play a role in alopecia, but other factors such as genetics, poor nutrition, stress, and thyroid abnormalities play a much larger role.
- Trichotillomania- Is an impulse control disorder that prompts sufferers to pull out their hair. People with this condition pull hair from their head, body, and eyelids, but psychologists have yet to determine what causes the disorder. Constant pulling can damage the follicle and permanently hinder hair growth. To treat trichotillomania from a hair loss perspective, doctors cover bald areas so that the hair can no longer be removed.
