If you normally have straight hair, you might want to curl your new hair extensions because they will curl just like your hair, because it is human hair.

However, the key to making your real extensions last longer is being gentle with brushing your hair, use a very soft bristle brush and then brush starting at the bottom and work your way up.

Do not over-brush your hair, because if you do, you will begin noticing the extensions beginning to fall out.

Be sure to add a heavy and deep conditioner to your extensions at least once each week. If using styling tools, make sure to use the ones with ceramic or other heat protectants, so that you do not damage the extensions with excessive heat.
