4 ways to air dry hair extensions

If you know anything about hair care, you’re familiar with the golden rule: the less you heat style your hair, the better. Sure, good quality products and regular haircuts can help, but nothing can compare to cutting down your use of hot tools when it comes to keeping your hair healthy.

Since Luxy Hair extensions are made from real Remy human hair, the same is true for your Luxies. Although you are free to curl and style them as you wish, air drying them from time to time can help prolong their lifespan and keep the unnecessary damage to a minimum. While your Luxies will hold style for longer than your natural hair, it’s still a good idea to forgo the heat from time to time.

What are the benefits of air drying vs. heat styling?

While preventing damage and keeping your extensions healthier for longer is the main advantage to air drying your extensions, there are several other benefits. If you want to embrace your hair’s natural texture for instance, air drying your extensions will help them blend more seamlessly into your own hair. If you’re in a hurry, you can just have your hair extensions ready to go by letting them air dry overnight (in a braid, for instance), and when you wake up you have gorgeous, beachy waves ready to go. Plus, you can also experiment with different curl patterns without having to buy an array of curling wands.

Washing your Luxy Hair extensions

We recommend washing your Luxies once every 16 to 20 wears or when there is significant product buildup to the point that it becomes unmanageable. Each time you curl or apply heat to your extensions, you’re basically laminating hairspray and product into the cuticles of the hair, so it’s important to give your Luxies a self-care day of their own.

When it comes time for a wash, use a sulfate-free shampoo. This will help keep your extensions feeling soft and looking shiny. Next, apply a deep conditioner and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes as this helps rehydrate the hair and counteract damage caused by heat styling incurred previously.

Air dry your Luxies these 4 ways

Style 1: Fishtail waves

This bohemian style is perfect for those favoring subtle bends in the hair.

Step 1

Step 2

Begin fishtail braiding your hair normally. If you want a tighter curl look, section the hair off into smaller braids and fishtail individually.

Step 3

Leave to dry overnight to ensure best results. We recommend setting them to dry in a well-ventilated room, preferably near a window or somewhere with good airflow. To help ensure a seamless blend, sleep with your natural hair in fishtails so that when you clip in your Luxies, everything looks uniform.

Style 2: 3-strand braid

The 3-strand braid method creates a wider, looser curl than the fishtail braid, making it ideal for someone looking for extra volume and bounce.

A quick, easy-peasy style, the twist will give you romantic curls, perfect for date night.
