How to Care for Your Hair Extensions


Keep Your Extensions Looking Fabulous

You've invested in top quality extensions.  Protect your investment. Proper care and maintenance will ensure that they continue to look fabulous through the life of the install.  These quick tips will keep your hair in check and keep the compliments coming month after month!

 

SHAMPOO / CONDITIONING
No matter the hair extension texture, always comb conditioner through your hair with a wide-tooth comb. It will detangle and smooth your hair before styling. Use shampoos and conditioners with sulfate-free natural ingredients.  We swear by the Organix brand available at Walmart, Target and your local drug store.  This stuff is amazing and is very affordable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 INSTALLING YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS

When installing our hair we strongly recommend that it is done by an experience extensions installer or professional hair stylist. It is essential that the cutting of the weft is kept to a minimal. If damage occurs, bind off by sewing with  needle and thread. If the weft is cut excessively whilst being installed the hair will ultimately loosen and fall out. When installing your hair we advise 2-3 packs 

 DAILY CARE

 Your hair needs the moisture of conditioner to keep it strong and healthy. But NEVER EVER USE HAIR GREASE OR PETROLEUM JELLY.  Instead use a lightweight leave-in spray. The Organix brand works really really well with all of our hair textures. Find it at Walmart, Target, Ulta, Shoppers and other local drug stores.  In order to keep your hair in its most natural state, we advise minimal product use. It's key to make sure your extension are taken care of in the same manner as your own natural hair.

It is essential when hair has had contact with excessive oils.  Oh and did we mention NEVER NEVER use Hair Grease...

CARING FOR DEEP WAVE CURLY HAIR EXTENSIONS
To achieve tighter curls, scrunch hair while conditioning to achieve tight curls and leave to air dry. We love L'Oreal EverCurl or other sulfate free leave in conditioner.  Distribute evenly through the hair. A wide tooth comb is not appropriate for this type of hair, you would have to run your hands through the curls. Always make sure your curls are moist and not dry to give the best enhance bouncy curls. Use sulfate free curling products to keep your curls tight.

 

CARING FOR THE WAVY HAIR EXTENSIONS
Scrunch lightly with a towel when wet and allow hair to dry naturally. To enhance your waves use bendy rollers/ curling wands and sulfate-free products for your waves.

STRAIGHT HAIR
While shampooing / conditioning run your hands up and down motion to keep your extensions bone straight. Once your hair is fully dried, Run straighteners over the hair from root to tip to make hair super smooth and shiny. Using a blow dryer may speed up the process of drying, and
give a bone straight effect. Please Note: Dryer must be on a moderate heat level.

COLOURING AND BLEACHING
Always use products specifically designed for color-treated hair. Only colour protected products have the technology to help you keep your perfect colour vibrant and fresh. After you colour your hair, use conditioner in place of shampoo to give extra moisture without stripping the colour. Be especially gentle with colour treated hair, colouring weakens hair and makes it more prone to breakage. Coloured hair needs extra moisture to keep it soft and smooth.
