Brush your extensions twice a day using a tangle teaser or similar brush starting at the ends and working up, sectioning your hair if needed. Also brush over the bonded area to prevent matting.
Keep your head upright and massage gently when washing. Do not submerge your hair back into bath water. Apply shampoo the your root area, washing 1-2 times. Your extensions themselves do not need shampooed.
We recommend only to shampoo your hair 2-3 times per week. Use dry shampoo when needed.
We strongly recommend that you use a low sulphate product on your hair extensions when washing. Tresemme Keratin Smooth works amazing with our extensions as it has added properties in that will feed your hair.
When applying conditioner only apply to the mid-lengths and ends (from you ponytail down), gently comb through with your tangle teaser before rinsing.
Use oils or serums on your extensions before drying to keep the extensions hydrated. It is recommended to use a high end oil.
Your natural hair gets fed sebum from your scalp, extensions don’t receive this and this is what keeps your hair soft and tangle free. Every 10 days leave a conditioning treatment to mid lengths and ends for 15-20 mins then rinse. This will keep your extensions soft, nourished and hydrated. For better results we recommend using a higher end brand such as Macadamia.
DO NOT use hair straighteners every day on your extensions, this will damage the hair and shorten the life span of your extensions rapidly. Always use a medium heat and use a heat protector.
Ensure the hair dryer nozzle is on when drying, point the dryer down the hair shaft from root to tip. This closes the cuticle and keeps the hair looking shiny and prevents frizzing.
Do not attempt to lighten your hair extensions, this hair has already been through a chemical process, any further processing will cause the hair to brake, snap and dry out.
Bond loss varies from client to client, some loose none, and others lose a few here and there. This is a normal occurrence in the hair extension process, don’t panic.
Summer holidays will shorten the life span of your extensions due to sun exposure and other elements. If your extensions come into contact with seawater, rinse with clean water and apply a conditioning treatment. Blonde hair may see a colour change whilst on holiday.
The life span of your bonds can be affected where any physical activity is carried out regularly, excessive sweating can cause bond deterioration. Constant damp environments i.e. sauna/steam and chlorine from swimming can also cause bond deterioration.
We advise you plait your hair extensions before going to bed to prevent matting. DO NOT go to bed with wet extensions.
Ensure you keep to your twelve-week removal date, as after this point the distance between the bond and scalp becomes too large and the bonds will twist and dread lock. The bonds become noticeable and irreversible damage is caused to the natural hair.
