Shampoo For Hair Extensions: What’s In The Formula?

shampoo and conditioner for hair extensions

Human hair extensions are our specialty, so it’s only natural that we’d soon start working on a hair care range that was designed and crafted with our stunning Remy tresses in mind. Finding the perfect formula that caters to both natural hair and hair extensions alike can be quite the daunting task, and we simply thought: hey, shouldn’t we make one ourselves?

After lots of thinking and tinkering in our lab, we came up with this rich and deeply hydrating shampoo for hair extensions formula, designed to penetrate in the hair fibres and rebalance the moisture levels in your tresses, and  gently cleanse your scalp from sebum excess and product build-up – all with a stunning, 100% sulphate-free and paraben-free recipe. 

Our key ingredients? Shea butter, Baobab seed oil, and rice proteins – true heroes of hydration for hair.

It Really Is The Best Shampoo For Hair Extensions. But Why?

Powered by these trio of hydration champions, the Cliphair shampoo for hair extensions works on your hair transforming your hair wash day into a luxurious experience.

It can be used on clip in hair extensions when it’s time for them to be cleaned, or it can replace your usual shampoo and treat your hair and professional hair extensions alike to a revitalising treatment that aims at rebalancing the moisture levels in your tresses, gently cleaning your scalp with an abundant, non-sticky lather – something you don’t quite come across when dealing with sulphate-free formulas.

Goodbye dry and thirsty hair, and hello, unmatched hydration - with Quench The Thirst: Deep Moisture shampoo for extensions.

The Ingredients:

Let’s take a look at the three main ingredients of the shampoo.

Shea Butter

Known and appreciated worldwide for its impressive hydrating properties, this natural ingredient is packed with essential fatty acids, Vitamin A and E, and it’s clinically proven to significantly reduce dryness and brittleness in hair and hair extensions. With its deeply moisturising powers, Shea Butter is a powerful ally that will enhance shine, prevent split ends, and reduce frizz in your hair. It can also fight off dandruff, and act as a protector against sun damage and environmental toxins to shelter your hair and scalp.

Baobab Seed Oil

Baobab oil is rich in fatty acids, including omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9, known for their moisturising properties, improving hair health and manageability. 

Its emollient properties make it an effective key ingredient, essential for softening and conditioning your hair whilst washing it. Its use can improve the texture of dry and brittle tresses, making it appear significantly smoother and softer and enhancing its luster! 

Rice Proteins

Another famous ingredient, rice proteins can be derived from products such as rice bran, rice germ, or rice starch, and they’re known for their potential to provide a lot of improvements in hair health and appearance. Their amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, can help strengthen and rebalance the protein bonds in your tresses, significantly reducing brittleness, split ends, and breakage; rice proteins can help improve the volume in your hair without weighing it down, and last but not least, rice is a popular hair care ingredient, renowned for its conditioning properties.

This sulphate free shampoo for hair extensions works best when used with its twin conditioner, the Quench The Thirst: Deep Moisture conditioner for hair extensions. Let’s discover it together.

Best Shampoo And Conditioner For Hair Extensions: Quench The Thirst!

After developing the best shampoo for hair extensions, we had to get to work and give it a partner in crime. Thus the legend of our Quench The Thirst: Deep Moisture conditioner for hair extensions was born!

After washing your tresses with our hair extensions shampoo, follow up with this miracle potion, and watch the transformation unfold!

Designed to help you and your detangling brush seamlessly glide on your hair, this softening conditioner is infused with Shea Butter and silk amino acids to treat your natural hair and hair extensions alike to an unbelievably softening experience, getting your tresses ready for flawless styling whilst helping you get rid of any knots or tangles. 

Its moisture-locking formula will make sure that your hair stays hydrated, shiny, and frizz-free – for hair that is visibly improved in shine, elasticity, and manageability from the first use.

Silk Amino Acids: What Do They Do?

This is one of the most popular ingredients in hair care, and it’s easy to see why: silk amino acids can improve the overall resilience of your tresses, reducing breakage and strengthening the hair shaft. Derived from raw silk, these amino acids attract and retain moisture – improving the hydration balance in dry and parched tresses.

How To Use Shampoo And Conditioner For Hair Extensions

how to wash hair

You may think you already know how to wash your hair – after all, it’s something you’ve been doing your whole life, am I right? – but you’d be surprised, you may be doing it wrong. Either way, here’s the secret to making the most out of these gorgeous miracle products for hair extensions!

Step 1: Wet Your Hair

There’s no “how to wash your hair” without getting it wet, so get under the shower and soak your hair and scalp thoroughly.

Step 2: Apply Your Shampoo

A small amount goes a long way – with its abundant sulphate-free lather, this hair extensions shampoo will help you thoroughly cleanse your scalp. Massage the product into your hair evenly using your fingertips focusing mainly on the scalp, repeat if necessary.

Step 3: Rinse Thoroughly

Make sure that there are no bubbles coming out of your hair when you rinse your shampoo away. Product build-up can cause scalp irritations, itchiness, and weigh down your hair – making it look greasy.

Step 4: Apply Conditioner

Use your Deep Moisturie conditioner for hair extensions on your ends and mid-lengths – then, you can use whatever’s left on your hands to condition your scalp, if you're not wearing products such as tape in hair extensions (it's always best to avoid conditioning your roots and scalp with permanent extensions, as it may lead to premature slip-offs!).

Step 5: Rinse Thoroughly… Again

Make sure there aren’t any bits of conditioner left on your scalp, your hair, or even your ears (sounds silly, but you’d be surprised to know how often this happens!). Using a cold rinse can be a clever and cost-effective way to seal the cuticles, locking in that moisture for longer.
