How To Wash JuvaBun Products
Now that you are a proud owner of your very own set of JuvaBun products, it is important to care for them properly to ensure they remain looking luscious, smooth, and shiny. If given the proper TLC (tender loving care) they deserve, JuvaBun products can last anywhere from 3-6 months, or even up to a year or longer!
JuvaBun extensions are made with High-Quality Synthetic Hair, however, since they don't receive natural oils from the scalp like 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 after every 10 wears or once a month. Watch the video below for full instructions on how to wash to properly wash your JuvaBun products, or scroll down for step by step instructions.
1) Remove any tangles or knots using your fingers or a wide tooth comb. Do not use a brush.
2) Take a bowl with cool water, add about 1 table spoon of shampoo/conditioner , and mix it together.
3) Insert your extension into the water and soak for about 5 minutes. Rinse it thoroughly in the cool water, do not rub.
4) Gently squeeze or use a clean dry towel while dabbing gently to dry it. Do not brush or comb while it's wet.
5) Add a leave-in conditioner spray for extra conditioning.
6) Dry it out using a blow dry on the warm (Not hot) setting. For best results, we recommend air drying.

Q: Do I need to wash my JuvaBun products before I wear them?
A: No, JuvaBun products are ready to wear straight out of the box! You do not need to wash them before wearing. Hair extensions are a hygienic product and therefore is completely safe to wear right out of the box.
Q: Why alcohol/sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner?
A: Purchasing sulfate-free and alcohol-free products is a necessity as they are imperative to maintain the health of your extensions. These ingredients strip the hair of its natural oils and will affect their integrity. This, in turn, makes the hair drier and more prone to tangling or matting.
Be sure to check the ingredient listing and ensure you don’t see the words: SLS, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Alcohol Denat, Ethanol, SD Alcohol 40, Propanol, Isopropyl, and Propyl.
Q: Do I need to wash my extensions after curling to make them straight again?
A: No, unless the extensions have a lot of product buildup (like hairspray), this is not needed. Instead, you can gently brush out the curls with a soft bristle brush from bottom to top, and use a hair straightener to straighten the extensions. Be sure to use a heat protectant spray prior to straightening, and to use a low to medium heat setting.
Keep in mind, using sticky products such as hairspray, hair gel, or hair wax, can and likely will clog up your extensions. The more products you use, the more you will need to wash your extensions, leading to dry, tangled extensions. Also, keep in mind that any products that you use on your natural hair can transfer onto your extensions.
