How To Wash Hair Extension
How to wash your Malaysia Hair Imports Hair extensions and Wigs are made with 100% Remy human hair, however, since they don’t receive natural oils from the scalp as our own hair does, they don’t need to be washed as often as your own hair. As a general rule, the less you wash your extensions the longer they will last. You can use your best judgment on how often to wash them, however, we recommend only washing them once there is a lot of product build-up.
If your extensions feel like they’re becoming increasingly difficult to style, this is likely a sign that there is product build-up and they need to be washed. We recommend washing them every week or once a month.
Step 1: Brush your hair extensions
The first and quite possibly one of the most important steps is to brush your extensions out before getting them wet. This helps minimize the possibility of tangling during and after you have washed the hair.
When brushing your extensions, we recommend starting from the bottom to top in order to gently remove any tough knots without pulling the hair out. We recommend using a wide-tooth comb or a soft bristle brush when working on your extensions.
In preparation for the wash, neatly place your wefts on top of each other in a bundle, similar to the same way as when you first received them. This will help ensure the hair does not tangle with the clips during the washing process.
Step 2: Prepare your water for your Hair Extensions
Ensure your lukewarm water – we don’t want the water to be too hot or too cold.
Squirt about 2-3 pumps or a small handful of shampoo into the water and wave the water around to ensure the product is evenly dispersed. When working with your extensions, we recommend using hair products that are alcohol-free, sulfate-free, and designed for colored treated hair or extensions in order to ensure the color is preserved.
Step 3: Shampoo each hair weft extensions
We highly recommend applying a moisturizing sulfate-free and alcohol-free conditioner before and after shampooing. Sometimes, even skip the shampoo and only co-wash your extensions with conditioner!
Wash each weft one at a time, to prevent tangling and to ensure each weft is washed thoroughly. If you are short on time, you can bundle the extensions with an elastic and wash them carefully in one shot.
Hold the weft is one hand at the top, submerge it into the water, and gently wash the hair, working the shampoo in with light strokes. When washing, make sure to handle the extensions gently and to not rub them vigorously as you would with your natural hair. Once you have washed the weft with shampoo, set it aside neatly on a towel and repeat the same steps for the rest of the wefts.
Step 4: Condition each hair weft extensions
Once all the wefts have been shampooed, it’s time to condition them. Take a generous amount of conditioner and apply onto each weft from top to bottom, massaging the product thoroughly into the hair. Leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse out each weft thoroughly. As a general rule, the longer you leave it on the better.
Step 5: Apply a deep conditioner or hair mask
This step is crucial to ensure that your hair extensions remain soft, and moisturized. Just like your conditioner, take a good about of the hair mask and work the product into each weft from top to bottom. In order for the product to really soak in and work its magic, bundle your extensions and carefully coil them and place them in a shower cap to leave overnight. This will help to seal in the moisture throughout the night.
Step 6: Rinse out each weft
The next morning, thoroughly rinse out each weft, ensuring that there is no conditioner residue left on the hair. A common mistake is to only wash the hair halfway, leaving it with “the slip”–that slippery, soft feeling after conditioning. This is a no-no, as it actually leaves product on the hair, which weighs it down or causes it to look greasy when dry.
When washing out each weft, rinse it again with cold water, which will help close the cuticles of the hair to seal in the moisture and make the extensions shinier.
Step 7: Air dry your hair extensions
First, carefully squeeze any excess water from the extensions and make sure that you never rub your extensions dry with a towel. We highly recommend air-drying your extensions whenever possible. When air drying, be sure to invest in a micro-fiber towel as it will remove excess water faster and it won’t rough up the hair (which can also cause tangles).
Layout all of the wefts on a flat surface and gently pat the excess moisture from the hair. A trick to preventing any frizz once the hair dries is to apply a small amount of hair oil to each weft to ensure the hair remains manageable and silky smooth.
If you must blow-dry your extensions, be sure to use a heat protectant spray prior to blow-drying to extend the lifespan of your hair extensions. The most important thing is to ensure that you are blow-drying on a cool setting to prevent any heat damage and that you don’t brush the hair until it is 90% dry. When blow-drying, start by focusing on drying the root of the weft first and then working your way down to the ends. Always blow-dry downwards as this will help to not only smooth the cuticle but it will also prevent the hair from getting tangled since it is being blown in lots of different directions.
Step 8: Comb each weft
Combing wet hair is usually not recommended as this is when the hair is at its most fragile state, however, in order to ensure that your extensions dry straight, you can make an exception. Gently brush through each weft with a wide-tooth comb from bottom to top.
Leave the wefts to dry, and come back to clean smooth, hair extensions, ready to clip into your hair.
How Often To Wash Your Human Hair Wig
Wigs do not have to be shampooed as often as natural hair. When a human hair wig is washed depends on how often you wear a wig and the type of damage caused when wearing a wig.
If you use styling products like hairsprays, mousses, or gels on your wig every day, you’ll need to wash your wig more often, about once a week. Or it only needs to be washed once every 7 to 10 days if you wore not so often.
Before cleaning the wig, gently comb it to remove any tangles. Start at the top of the hair and go to the bottom of the headband. Be sure to use only combs designed for wigs, such as wide combs. For stubborn tangles, the use of spray conditioners can help loosen them.
People are confused about the cold or warm water used to wash wigs. It is recommended to use warm water (about 77-86 °F) because water above 86 °F will deform the wig and make your wig lose its elasticity. Coldwater does not melt shampoo and conditioner well.
Many salons recommend submersing your human hair wig in a basin of water with a small amount of shampoo. We do not recommend doing so as it can tangle the wig, making it highly unmanageable.
To do so, you can hold the wig under the faucet from your sink (but only if the hair is short). For longer wigs, we recommend holding the wig under the faucet of your bathtub or shower so that the hair does not get tangled in the basin below.
Make your wig full of conditioner and clean enough, turn your wig inside out gently with your fingers and leave the hairpieces to hang naturally. Rinse the unit into the water to make sure every strand of hair is submerged and clean enough. Then gently apply some water into the wig cap. Turning the wig inside out helps to wash every strand’s hair thoroughly and clean your wig cap which is often attached to your head. Never scrub or be aggressive.
After five minutes, rinse the wig with warm water to remove any shampoo residue. Wipe the hair gently with a towel, apply conditioner from the middle to the end, leave it for 3 minutes, then rinse with warm water from start to finish.
Drying & Styling Your human hair wig
Squeeze excess water from the wig and gently dry the hair with a towel (do not rub or wring).
It is best to let your human hair wigs dry on the wig, as this is the softest of the hair fibers. When the wig is wet, try not to brush as this will damage the fibers. If your wig is curly, always use your fingers to “twist” it. Winding up means placing your hand under the hair, lifting it up, and then curling your fingers inward. This will cause the curls to gather and form curls.
Spray with water and leave-in conditioner. Finish off with an oil mist for luster. For curly hair, apply a curl holding/defining product to the wet hair. This will ensure the definition and hold without frizzing hair.
If you are not in a hurry, try not to use a hairdryer. If you have a last resort, the temperature should not be too high.
After completely drying, brush the wig. If the wig is straight or wavy, use the wire wig brush again; if the wig is curled, use a wide-toothed comb from start to finish. Apply tangled products if needed.
Re-curl the wig if necessary. Some wigs are made from naturally curled hair. Other wigs are made from straight hair curled by a curling iron. The latter wig loses curl after cleaning.

Hair Extensions with Cambodian Hair Quality Hair – Perfect Hair Everyday!
Cambodian Hair is a common raw material for a high-quality hair extension. However, the processing of this hair is less time-consuming than that of Indian hair.
Since Asian hair is more similar to the European hair structure, the hair does not need to be thinned. The attached hair extensions will look natural even without this step.
Cambodian human hair can be bleached and subsequently dyed in different shades of color.
Hair Extensions with Malaysian Human
Malaysian Hair is a valuable raw material for a high-quality hair extension. The processing of this hair is less time-consuming than that of Indian and Chinese hair.
Since Asian hair is more similar to the European hair structure meaning the hair does not need to be thinned.
Hair Extensions with Burmese Human Hair
Burmese is similar to Indian hair in its characteristics. This hair also does not have to be thinned out before making the hair extensions.
However, since the Americas and Europeans have the same lineage, Burmese hair is even more similar to European hair than Indian hair is.
This type of human hair extensions is applied by looping the single-strand micro-bead extensions through your own hair and clamping down with a pair of pliers and a metal bead to finish. So pretty much, your entire head is covered in these little beads. You need to go to a professional for the application of micro-bead hair extensions.
Sewn-in/Weave Hair Extensions
Sewn-in weave hair extensions are those who have super thick, coarse, or naturally super curly hair. Your own hair is braided tightly into corn rows throughout your entire head, and the extensions are then attached using a needle and a thread.
A pro about these hair extensions is that they work super well for girls who have tons of hair that is thick and a coarse, however, a con is that the tight braids seriously strain your scalp, therefore they are not advisable for those who have thin hair.
Also, consider hygienic reasons – it may be difficult to wash and condition the scalp because the entire scalp is covered in cornrows. You need to go to a professional for the application of sewn-in hair extensions as well as consistently visit the salon (even six weeks or so) to ensure that the extensions are still sewn in correctly into place and if the braids need to be tightened up again.
Clip-in Hair Extensions
Clip-in hair extensions is the fastest, easiest, and least damaging type of hair extensions that you can apply all by yourself without having to go to a professional. Clip-in hair extensions are a temporary method of hair extensions, which means you can clip them in and out whenever you want.
Clip-in hair extensions are ideal if you are looking to add length and volume to your hair without the commitment or breaking the bank. Clip-in hair extensions are a popular choice among women all over the world for bridal and bridesmaids’ hairstyles as they can greatly enhance any hairstyle.
You need to take off your clip-in hair extensions when you shower, sleep, or swim, however, clipping them in takes only about 5 minutes. Always choose real remy human hair extensions as you will be able to heat style and wash them just like your own hair.
High-quality clip-in hair extensions will last you anywhere from 3-6 months up to a year or even longer, depending on how often you wear them and how well you take care of them. Malaysia Hair Imports raw human hair extensions are all high quality 100% real remy human clip-in hair extensions.
Tape-in Hair Extensions
Tape in method of hair extensions involves taking each weft and literally taping them onto your own hair. The wefts are connected by wide bonds of tape and your own hair is placed between them and clamped around the strands.
Pros to this method of hair extensions is if you wear your hair extensions without a break, these can last in your hair for 6-12 weeks. Some cons to tape in hair extensions are that it can be difficult to tie your hair up how you want it since you can’t reposition the wefts after they are applied, and they can also begin tangling with your own hair as it starts growing out. You need to go to a professional for the application of tape in hair extensions.
Glue-in/Keratin Bond/Pre-bonded Hair Extensions
These hair extensions are attached to the hair with keratin bonds that are on top of the extensions, which are fused with a hot tool. This technique requires heat for application, and consistent visits to the salon to maintain them.
They can look great; however, it is best to not using oils, conditioners or any hot styling tools because this can weaken the bonds and make the extensions come out.
WHAT IS RAW VIRGIN HAIR?
Raw Virgin Hair is human hair that is in its natural state. No chemical changes, no color, has not been processed, and all cuticles are intact. All hair sold by Malaysia Hair Imports is Raw virgin hair.
HOW CAN I MEASURE THE LENGTH OF MY HAIR PRODUCTS?
Your Cambodian, Malaysian, Burmese hair extensions and wigs should be measured to the fall of the hair. Start 0 at the weft or top of wig cap and measure to the ends of the bundle. The Cambodian and Burmese Wavy, Cambodian Body Wave, Burmese Curly, and Kinky Curly hair extensions and wigs must be measured by pulling the hair straight. Again, start 0 at the weft; pull the hair straight from the ends, and the length will be at the tips of the hair.
Each bundle will not measure exact when it is still wrapped in its band, as tension can affect the fall of each strand.
CAN THE HAIR BE STRAIGHTENED OR CURLED?
Your new hair from Malaysia Hair Imports 100% Human Raw Virgin hair extensions can be styled like your own hair. You are able to use a thermal (hot) tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will.
Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protecting product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep hours.
CAN I COLOR MY HAIR BUNDLES?
Any chemical processes should be done by a professional or at least consulted by one. This purchase is an investment for you and chemically altering the hair can possibly damage it. Although our Raw Virgin hair extensions can handle a coloring process very well, please be cautious.
Once the hair is chemically-altered incorrectly, the cuticle can become damaged and overexposed, causing fraying, breakage, dryness, and tangling. This in turn will affect the overall look and feel of your hair. Chemical damage has no reverse button, and we will not be held liable for any damages.
DOES OUR HAIR SHED?
Minimally, no hair is absolutely perfect. We have reinforced machine wefting, to minimize shedding to nearly none. You may see a few strands here or there while detangling or styling, but nothing troubling or excessive. The most effective way to avoid shedding is by sealing the wefts.
HOW LONG DOES THIS HAIR LAST?
Our 100% Human Hair Extensions and Wigs can last through multiple installs. However, the lifetime of your extensions depends heavily on how they are cared for. On average our customers can use their extensions from 6 to 8 months if cared for properly. Learn more about Caring for your Raw Virgin Cambodian, Malaysian and Burmese Hair Extensions
WHAT DOES CO-WASH HAIR MEAN?
Co-washing simply means washing with conditioner. It is a key task in extending the life of your extensions and keeping them healthy. We recommend a co-wash once a week with moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs.
When you first receive your extensions, it is important to co-wash the hair, as it has been through Malaysia Hair Imports is a direct factory manufacturers’ that hands, packaging, etc.
Shampooing the hair can strip the hair entirely too much of its moisture. Always use WARM water, as hot water will overexpose the cuticle of the hair.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY HAIR?
All virgin hair reacts differently to product and regimens. Please be mindful to stay away from ingredients that can strip your extensions of moisture such as parabens, sulfate, and silicone. These products usually tend to have a high alcohol content which dehydrates the hair follicle of its nutrients.
Heavy oils are also not necessary to care for your extensions as it can weigh down your hair pattern. By rule of thumb, we recommend co-washing your bundles weekly and shampooing bi-weekly to rid your bundles of any excess product. Deep conditioning can be done as needed.
WHAT HAIR PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND I USE?
With no two heads being alike, our customers have a variety of experience with different textures as well as their daily maintenance of their extensions. Over the years we have collected knowledge regarding what works best.
Our customers highly suggest product lines such as Crème of Nature, Carol’s Daughter, Cantu, As I Am, and more. Even though our customers suggest these products, your extensions may not respond in the same manner.
HOW MANY HAIR BUNDLES SHOULD I ORDER?
The key to determining how many bundles to purchase depends on the lengths you are wanting. As all bundles are the same weight (3.3oz), the longer bundles have shorter wefts, and the shorter bundles have longer wefts. For a full sew-in, we recommend 3-4 bundles of hair. For lengths over 18”, we recommend ordering 4-5 bundles of hair.
If you desire an install with a lot of volume, you will need 4-5 bundles or 4 bundles with a closure. A closure is a great addition to your install, as you will have no leave-out. This is considered a full protective style, and none of your hair will be exposed.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO RECEIVE MY PACKAGE?
We have a standard 24-48 hour processing time prior to the shipment of 5-7 business days all orders. This processing timeframe is subject to change due to sales or holidays. Please review our shipping methods to receive an estimated timeframe of received your package.
