Always Brush Your Hair Extensions When They Are Dry

Wait for Your Hair to Dry Before Going to Sleep
Do not go to sleep with wet hair. You want your hair to be dry before you go to sleep. When you sleep on wet hair, you increase the risk that your hair extensions will get pulled and damaged. Instead, you should put your hair up in a bun or in a braid. This will prevent your hair and your hair extensions from getting damaged while you sleep.
It is also a good idea to sleep on a silk pillowcase. That way, your hair will just slide on the pillowcase.
Brush Out Your Hair Extensions Every Day

Use Heat Protection Spray
You can style your hair extensions with a curling iron or a flat iron. However, before you style your hair with a hot tool, spray your extensions with heat protectant spray. Be sure to spray the rest of your hair as well. Heat can shorten the life of your hair extensions, so use it sparingly and always use a heat protection spray on your tape-in hair extensions before using any heat product on your extensions.
