We suggest getting new hair every 4-6 months.

Hair extensions are a popular choice for those seeking to add length, volume, or a change of style to their natural hair. However, maintaining the quality of these extensions is crucial for their longevity and appearance.

According to various experts, the replacement timeline for hair extensions can vary based on the extension type and how well they are maintained. Tape-in hair extensions, for instance, typically need to be replaced every six to eight weeks. This period can change based on individual hair growth rate and the level of care provided.

For synthetic extensions, the average lifespan is a few months, while high-quality hair extensions can last several months with regular use. Some hair can even be reapplied multiple times and last up to 12 months before needing replacement, depending on the type.

However, it’s important to note that signs of wear, such as split ends and excessive shedding, indicate it’s time to replace the extensions. Regular maintenance, including tidy-up cuts every six weeks for certain types like K-tips, can help prolong the life of the extensions.

In conclusion, while the general guideline is to replace hair extensions every few months, the exact timeline can vary. Regular maintenance and monitoring for signs of damage can extend the lifespan of your extensions, ensuring they continue to look their best.
