3. Make sure to curl the extensions carefully when curling them. Many synthetic extensions sold in the markets are straight. And they will be still straight even after being washed. But if you want to make them curl, then you can get hair-curlers to achieve that. Soak your extensions in warm water(about 60degrees), and then roll the curlers into the hair. Let the hair air dry naturally, when the hair gets dry, you can remove the curlers, and you will have curly hair extensions.

6. Before the hair extensions look dull and dirty, you need to renew or remove them. Most of hair extensions can be in good condition for about six weeks, and after six weeks, they tend to move up the hair shaft and become loose and uneven. So if you want to keep them in good condition and make them work for a long time, you need to take care of them very carefully. When they are not in a good condition, you can return them to the hairdresser to make them look better.
