“I fell in love with Glam Seamless because they would send me their clip ins to work with my clients. I just completely fell in love with the line,” Priscilla said on the HL IG Live. “I fell in love with the quality of the hair… they’re just absolutely amazing. It styles beautifully, it’s shiny.” The extension pro then explained how to ensure your clip-in extensions are taken care of so they last forever!
When To Wash Your Extensions
“The way that you take care of your extensions is really important. It’s recommended that you wash them ever five times you wear them. I recommend using Glam Seamless’s Wet Line, It’s really hydrating for the extensions, it keeps them shiny. You wash them in the sink, just the way that you would wash normal hair.”
Keep Extensions In The Same Direction
“You want to hold the width of the clips in your hand as you’re washing them, and have the water and hair go down in the same direction. Just like you’d wash your normal hair and it all washes down.”
How To Dry Your Hair Extensions
“You can air dry and let them hang on a hanger. Or, if you want to wear them soon, you can have someone hold them while you blow dry them out. There’s even some extension tools where you can clip the hair on it and and blow dry and style them hands free. Remember, it’s 100% real hair, so you can do just about anything with it.
