How Long Do Hair Extensions Last

How Long Do Hair Extensions Last

Hair extensions can instantly add length and volume to your hair, elevating your entire appearance to a whole new level. Most premium hair extensions can last up to 1 year or more when cared for properly. To maximize the benefits of your hair extensions, learn what to do (and what not to do) when it comes to proper care and maintenance.

How To Care For Your Hair Extensions

Care is key when it comes to extending the life of your hair extensions. Premium clip-in hair extensions, tape-in hair extensions, and weft hair extensions should all be able to last for up to 1 year (or longer) when you take good care of them. Here are a few things to keep in mind to increase the chances of your extensions lasting for 12 months or more:

  • Always gently brush your hair while wearing them.
  • When not in use, store your hair properly in the zip bag provided, or on a hang-your-hair hanger inside of a carrier.
  • The more products and heat you apply to your hair, the more love it will need.
  • Do not dye your extensions. Never use a purple shampoo or alter them in any way.
  • Wash your hair extensions every 15 to 20 wears, or when you notice product buildup, using a gentle shampoo and conditioner.
  • After washing your extensions, lay them flat to dry, preferably on satin or silk (this is especially true for clip-in and tape-in hair extensions).
  • Deep condition your hair extensions once per week, if you are wearing them often.
  • For an extra step, use argan oil or almond oil on your hair extensions once or twice per week to keep them soft.

You can care for your Bombay Hair hair extensions the same way you do your own hair. We recommend brushing your extensions with a soft bristle brush so that you have soft, smooth hair for each use.


If you decide to curl your extensions or use a flat iron, make sure to use a heat protectant spray.

How Long Will Hair Extensions Last in My Hair?

The exact amount of time your hair extensions will last in your hair depends on which type of extensions you’ve selected:

Clip-In: These types of hair extensions can last in your hair all day long. Simply place them in your hair in the morning before starting your day and remove them at night when you return home.

Tape-In: When professionally installed, tape-in extensions will stay in your hair for 2 to 3 months.

Weft Hair Extensions: Weft hair extensions can stay in your hair for 6 to 8 weeks when properly cared for and maintained. This can vary depending on factors such as hair growth and daily styling routines. It can also help to have regular hair appointments scheduled to care for them.
