How do I care for my purchased hair?

Hair weaves should be changed every three to four weeks on average to avoid tangling, frizzing or shedding. For best results with your weaves we recommend the following simple maintenance but important steps for longevity. Please follow these instructions to ensure complete satisfaction.

  • Be sure to brush the hair after each use in order to minimize tangling.
  • The Hair Factory uses only human hair, and that moisturizing our hair is just as important, as moisturizing your own hair. Note that lighter hair extensions or varying shades of blond need both moisture and protein. The use of low- to sulfate-free shampoo is highly recommended, traditional shampoos can strip hair of natural oils.
  • Protein shampoos should be used every three to four weeks if you are using heat on the pieces, while moisturizing shampoos can be used weekly. To get rid of build-up, use a deep-cleansing shampoo biweekly.
  • All hair types can experience damage from daily heat styling. Use heat sparingly, and apply a protectant before using hot irons.
