Just like your natural hair, people's hair needs some care. If you want your hair to expand to make you look beautiful, you better learn how to care for them.
Detangle your hair before washing it, and before going to bed

Wash your haie every other day using a gentle shampoo
Lather your hair gently, and work the shampoo downwards, from scalp to ends, Try to avoid touching the sewn part. meassage your hair using circular motions
Take care where you apply the conditioner
Start applying the conditioner from just below the sewn part. If you apply too much conditioner where the extensions connect with your real hair, your extensions may fall out.
Dry your hair all the way to the roots
When you get extensions sewn in, you end up with twice as much hair. It looks great, but it will take twice as long to dry. Make sure that you dry your hair completely, or you will risk the extensions loosening.
Avoid using heat styling on your hair, such as straightening or curling
If you must heat style your hair, use a heat protecting spray and a medium to low temperature.

This will protect your extensions, and keep them from getting frizzy or tugged out while you sleep.
