Hair Extension Care

  1. When brushing, use a soft bristle brush and start from the bottom and gently work your way up.

  2. Gently tie your hair up while sleeping and never sleep with wet hair.

  3. Do not attempt to color your own hair extentions. Head to a salon for this procedure.

  4. Running your fingers through the extensions will help prevent tangling.

  5. Do not spray where the extensions are attached at the root with conditioners or any silicone based products as they can cause the extensions to slip. I recommend spraying shoulders down on the middle to ends of the extension hair.

  6. Hair extensions should not be more than twice the length of your hair. Avoid tugging or harsh brushing as this could weaken the bonds that hold the extensions in place. Natural hair extensions can be set, curled and and highlighted (at the salon).

  7. Keep your hair clean. Hair tangles when dirt and sweat build up, wash your hair after exercise, swimming etc. Brush your hair and remove all tangles before washing it. Wash your hair going in a downward motion. Use a good quality shampoo, your stylist can advise you what product is best for your hair. When lots of water is added at once to very dry hair, hair can swell up and tangle. Gradually wet the hair and brush gently before you completely wash it. This is more common with less expensive extension hair.

  8. When brushing use a soft bristle brush, start at the ends of your hair and gently work your way up. Always brush in a downward motion. Do not brush harshly. Brush your hair 2 or 3 times a day. Heat is your one of your hair's biggest enemy, the more you use it, the shorter your hair extensions will last. Be careful with the use of blowdryers and curling irons too often. It is best to let your hair dry naturally.

  9. Be sure to request after-care information. This will extend the life of your extensions.
