Cleanse your scalp at least once a week with a clarifying shampoo. Only your scalp not the Kanekalon! Massage the shampoo into your scalp, gently, using your fingertips.
Rinse away the shampoo with warm water. As the water rinses the shampoo away, it will run through the Kanekalon and down the drain -- taking dirt, debris and buildup with it.
Blot (don't rub) your hair dry with a microfiber towel after rinsing. The microfiber will collect excess water as you blot. Keep blotting until your hair is no longer dripping wet. Remember, blot, don't rub!
Spray a leave-in conditioner in your hair to moisturize your scalp and the Kanekalon. Comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb to remove knots and to distribute the conditioner.
Air-dry your hair after combing. Hairdryers can dry out the Kanekalon and your natural hair underneath. Air-drying will keep the Kanekalon looking sleek and shiny.
Slip a satin cap over the Kanekalon before you go to sleep at night. The satin will protect the Kanekalon from rubbing against your pillow. The rubbing can make the Kanekalon fuzzy, messing up your look.
Keep the Kanekalon smooth and shiny in between shampooing and rinsing, using hair oil. Squeeze a pea-sized amount into your palms and pat it onto the Kanekalon.
If you are short on time and absolutely must use a blow dryer to dry the Kanekalon, set the blow dryer to low heat and hold it at least 12 inches from your hair, waving it back and forth continuously. High heat directly on the Kanekalon will cause singeing.
