Care and Upkeep

  1. We cannot emphasize enough that lengthened hair needs special care.
  2. Before going to bed, it is recommended if you have long hair extensions strands that you pull it back in a loose ponytail, high loose bun, or a side low loose braid to prevent the hair from getting tangled.

    In the morning, gently unravel the braid or the ponytail with your fingers. BRUSH with the recommended brush from the nape up row by row.

    A paddle brush or wide tooth comb may be used to remove tangles from the mid shaft to ends of the hair however, do not comb from scalp to bonds.

    When brushing ALWAYS section the hair from nape up. Hold hair firmly from mid shaft, start to brush out all tangles with paddle brush, after the tangles are out hold the hair under the bonds and continue to brush the mid shaft to the ends, holding the hair firmly creates less to no tension on the bonds. Only brush the bonded area with the special brush.

  3. Do not shampoo for the first 2 days, unless your hair produces oil within a day.

    NEVER wash your hair with head face down. Always tilt your head back and foam hair from top to bottom.

    PLEASE REMEMBER TO WASH THE NAPE OF YOUR HEAD VERY WELL. VERY IMPORTANT The nape tends to produce the most oil, sweat, and we tend to not focus as much in the back nape area, this is “VERY IMPORTANT”. Extensions slip out more around that area, unlike the top and sides where more of the focus is. I recommend to Always shampoo twice especially in the nape area.

    Never dry with a scrubbing action; wrap with a towel to absorb the water.

    You must use recommended products, as problems do occur with other products.

    Do not use products that contain sulfur such as dandruff shampoos, or glycerin, silicone etc… NEVER use shampoo from a drug store. Always shampoo twice especially in the nape area where sweat and oil tend to hold more. Never put conditioner on the roots, it may cause extensions to start slipping out. Avoid product on bonds especially wax, silicone, oily, conditioner products. Hair sprays and dry shampoos are allowed. Always call and consult before using any new products to make sure they are compatible with the hair extension brand.

  4. NEVER USE HOT TOOLS ON BONDS. Heat is how hair extensions are applied, heat is how they will release, and can damage your hair if you are not careful, especially in the back where it is hard to see. This in time can create hair extensions to start falling out and slowly start shedding. AVOID BONDS AT ALL TIME EXCEPT WHEN BRUSHING AND DETANGLING
  5. TWO WEEKS AFTER APPLYING HAIR EXTENSIONS, RETURN TO THE SALON TO HAVE A CHECK-UP.

    Some bonds may get tangled if you do not brush your hair daily. The natural fallout of your own hair may cause a little tangle between the bonds, if this happens, please pull apart and separate strands, if it gets to matted make an appointment to have it removed.

It is natural to lose a few strands due to natural fallout. You can return and have a few strands added, if necessary. Removal can be done at the salon.
