I love to wear my Secret Extensions, but sometimes they get tangled and messy because I use a lot of product on them. So, I wanted to share some tips + tricks for keeping them clean and well maintained. I would suggest washing them about every 4 to 6 weeks because they do not receive natural oils like our hair, so they will not need to be cleaned often. I clean mine about every three weeks simply because I use a ton of product on my hair.
I use the Michel Mercier Detangler Brush on my Secret Extensions because I find that it does the best job. It definitely detangles the extensions, while not damaging them or ripping out any hairs. There are very rarely any hairs left in the brush at all. The blue one is for thick hair and I think it works the best on ALL hair type. I have tried the other no tangle brushes (thin and normal hair brushes) and they did not work as well for me. You should find which works best for you though!
I usually fill the sink up with warm water and let them soak for a minute or so. I then wash them in shampoo and let them soak in the sink again. Then I rinse them out and add conditioner and let them sit again. After all that, I empty out the sink and run the hair under the sink water. Then I usually lay them out on a towel.
I have found that it is difficult to brush these when wet. So, I would suggest never doing that because you will lose a lot of hair from your extensions! I find it best to just let them air dry. I also like to run my fingers through my Secret Extensions so that I can easily detangle them again once they dry.
