Hair Extensions Aftercare Guide.

Your hair extensions are designed for three months of continuous wear, During those three months, it’s very important to know how to look after your extensions so that your hair stays looking natural.

We only use 100% natural human hair, so you can wash and style your hair extensions just as you would your own hair.

we recommend only washing your hair extensions 2 – 3 times per week.

Newly fitted hair extensions should not be washed within 24hrs of being applied. The first and most important thing is that you keep your hair clean. Wash it at least twice a week with warm water and an oil-free, mild shampoo and conditioner. Its important to wash your hair immediately after swimming to remove chlorine, wash after exercising as well. 

Before you wash your hair, you must brush it thoroughly to remove all the tangles. This will make washing it much easier. Keep your head upright while you shampoo so that the hair stays in one position. Use oil free shampoo and conditioner only.

Conditioner should only be applied from the mid-lengths to the ends of the hair (only applicable to single strands hair extensions).

It is important to brush your hair each time it gets wet. Start at the ends and slowly and gently work your way up using one hand to brush and the other to hold your hair still. Brushing this way will prevents shedding and damaging your extensions.

Brush your hair with a Paddle brush before washing your hair, this will stop your hair getting tangled when washing your hair.

You can straighten, curl, and tong the hair extension, but avoid excessive strain and pulling.

For those who have an oily hair, make sure you wash your hair extensions regularly. 

Do not sleep with wet hair, Ensure it is dry before going to bed, It is recommended to gently tie your hair up to prevent tangling too.

Before going to sleep, put your hair into a plait or tie it up loosely to avoid any tangling during the night. Avoid going to bed with wet hair.

We highly recommend using a heat-protecting spray and a medium heat setting if available for your hair.

Styling products such as hair sprays, serum or mousse may be use but you should avoid applying them near the bonds or rings.
