Hair Care

 Pre-Installation

To ensure the best quality and standards, we recommend prior to installation that you always:

  • Wash your hair using sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner (keep bondage on during this process to avoid tangling).
  • When washing hold hair at the bondage and wash in vertical direction.
  • Let hair air-dry

Maintenance

  • Shampoo hair at least once a week 
  • Use good quality, sulfate-free shampoo to keep your hair clean and moisturized (sulfate -free shampoos won't dry out hair or leave it stiff)
  • Brush your hair and remove all tangles before shampooing.
  • When shampooing the hair, always wash it in downward motion.
  • Sponge the shampoo into the hair
  • Do not massage
  • Rinse thoroughly, be sure all residue is washed out
  • Apply conditioner and comb hair, starting with the ends working your way up to your scalp.
  • Rinse thoroughly, be sure all residue is washed out
  • Let your hair air dry
  • Style as desired
  • NEVER SLEEP ON WET HAIR

  • Before going to bed, braid your hair into one, two, or four large braids.
  • Undo braid, upon waking up, and style as desired

Activities/Fitness Conditions

Working Out

  • Prior to your workout regime comb hair to remove any tangles, braid hair into one big braid
  • Avoid covering your head with caps or scarves, allow air to reach your scalp (heat is generated at the scalp which causes sweat and build up)

Miscellaneous Tips

It is important to remember that the extension hair is real.  Because the hair is cut from the scalp, it is no longer receiving the needed nutrients. Maintaining moisture and hydration is the number one key to the health and longevity of your hair. Heat is your hair extensions biggest enemy. The more you use it, the shorter the life span of your hair. We cannot guarantee the hair will remain soft and silky, if excessive use to blow drying, flat iron, or curling iron. We recommend you use heat free styling tools as often as possible (rollers, rods, steam rollers, and steam dryers).
