 How to take care of curly hair extensions with Olaplex 


So if you’re anything like us you’ve been wearing your Bebonias non-stop. But after wearing them again and again (and again) sometimes your extensions need a little TLC. The good news? Just like your curls, your extensions can bounce back to life. Today we’re going to show you how to take care of curly hair extensions with Olaplex. 



Here’s what you’ll need:


Olaplex No. 0

Olaplex No. 3

Shampoo and Conditioner (we used Olaplex No. 4 + Olaplex No. 5)

Stylers: We used a gel, plus Olaplex No 6. + No. 7  

Optional: Ziplock Bag or Shower Cap, Hair Dryer




Curly Hair Extension Care | Do a reparative treatment with Olaplex No. 0 + Olaplex No. 3


You know the feeling when your hair needs a deep conditioning or a reparative treatment? Your extensions are no different. When it starts to look like the ends are getting a little wild, and the definition just won’t hold - it’s time to up your regimen. Our go-to is the at-home Olaplex treatment featuring No. 0 Intensive Bond Building Treatment and No. 3 Hair Perfector. Why?  The two-step bond-building treatment helps strengthen and preserve your curls in one simple use. 


Step 1: Starting with your extensions dry, saturate each weft in Olaplex No. 0. Then set a timer for 10 minutes.




Step 2: At the end of the timer, gently rake Olaplex No. 3 through the strands of each weft. To maximize your treatment gently place the wefts in a ziplock bag or shower cap, and then apply heat. Leave on for at least 10 minutes. This will allow the cuticle to open up, even more, allowing deeper product penetration - and thus better results. 




Step 3: Shampoo your extensions. For tips and tricks on how to wash your wefts, check out this video. We used Olaplex No. 4 because it’s super concentrated and a little goes a long way. 




Step 4: Condition. Condition. Condition. We all know, curly hair looks its best when conditioned well. We love Olaplex No. 5 because it helps to further repair  damage while adding shine and strengthening the hair. For best results, detangle each of your curly hair extensions with a wide-tooth comb, starting at the ends and working your way up. And as always, work one weft at a time. For an extra boost of conditioning benefits, leave on for a few minutes before rinsing. For more detangling tricks check out this blog post




And voilà! From old to new again:





Curly Hair Extension Care | Styling Curly Hair Extensions with Olaplex



1. To keep the strands of your weft as smooth as possible, we recommend sealing with a cream styler as well as an oil. We love Olaplex No. 6 (like many curly girl favorites it has coconut oil). But our go-to trick is to cocktail it with Olaplex No. 7 (their shine oil) and then apply it to our wefts, raking from top to bottom, one weft at a time.

2. To ensure definition and prolong the hold, finish by styling with your favorite curly hair gel. Check out some of our favorites here.
