As long as you're using a shampoo that is sulphate free then you should be fine.
A lot of people use different brands, different types, some may work for others that may not work for someone else. And that has a lot to do with also the maintenance of your hair. If you're taking care of your extensions then a sulphate free shampoo and a deep conditioner, not a leave-in conditioner, you don't want anything left on the hair because you want the hair to be able to move. You don’t want to apply anything to it that’s going to be left on it.
Let it air dry ladies and once it's air dried, it's going to swing, it's going to move very nicely and you will definitely see the difference opposed to using heat from a dryer. Because heat from anything can damage the hair including extensions ladies. You must remember that this hair is human hair just as well as your natural hair. So the same things can happen. That’s why some people say; well I used some hair before and this never happened or I used some hair before and something else is happening different. Look at what you're doing to the hair.After its shampooed, I like for it to air dry, a lot of people say well how do I get to this scalp part for it to dry as well. You can take a blow dryer and go ahead and just put a little heat down in there if you don't have a dryer that you can sit up under to go ahead and get it dry a little bit down between the tracks. But the rest of the hair like the part that’s out, that’s hanging definitely go with an air dry.
If your natural hair has been blow dried out with a blow dryer and you're not doing it the correct way as the Dominicans would do it, you're not going to get that bone straight look, right? So it's the same thing with the hair extensions, if you're blow drying hair extensions and it's not bone straight then you're basically putting a lot of heat in it, which would definitely damage the hair. So again, go with a sulphate free shampoo, a deep conditioner, do not use a leave-in conditioner and that will do your extensions very well.
