Why should we wash human hair extensions before installing?

First of all, we need to make sure it is clean before installing. As we all know, our hair was packed once we sent payment. It will take about 3-5 workdays for us to receive the package. In this long-time transportation, we don’t know who pack hair for us, we also don’t know what happened during the transportation, maybe it was stuck in custom and needs to be opened and inspected, this is unknown to us. It will bring dirt or dust in this process, which makes your human hair tangle easily. Also, it is not clean at all if we install it directly without washing. No matter what to say, we order human hair weave to make us look more gorgeous and charming, so don’t let unclean hair make you feel sick and uncomfortable.

All human hair is collected from different human hair beings and then produced without chemical processed. But to keep it in good state, hair vendors usually apply some moisturizing essence to make it look shiny and moisturized and good condition even after long transportation. That’s why your hair may have a slight smell when you receive it, it is from the factory, but it will disappear once you wash it. So for your health’s sake, you should wash it once you open your package.

In addition, washing human hair bundles is just for better installation. No matter you buy hair bundles to add volume to your own hair or hair bundles with closure to sew in a human hair wig, it will become smooth and fuller after you wash it so that you can get a perfect look.
