Looking After Your Hair Extensions

KEEPING YOUR EXTENSIONS IN GREAT CONDITION

Once you’ve got your hair extensions in it’s important to follow some simple rules to keep them looking great for longer.

  • Cleaning Your Hair

    – Do not shampoo your hair for at least 48 hours after hair extensions have been applied to allow the bond to set
    – Always follow the directions on the bottle
    – Shampoo and condition your hair at least once a week
    – Finish by rinsing your hair in diluted Final Rinse Anti-Tap Solution to restore the pH balance of your hair and scalp

  • Drying Your Hair

    – Always dry your hair thoroughly, starting at the bond, as it is at its most vulnerable when wet
    – Do not towel dry the hair with a scrubbing motion. Instead, use a blotting motion and wrap the hair in a towel to remove the moisture
    – Always blow-dry your hair on a cool temperature

  • Brushing Your Hair

    – Flat headed, soft bristled brushes are the most suitable
    – With small sections of hair, gently brush from the bonds to the ends of your hair
    – On a regular basis, separate the bonds with your fingers to prevent matting. Then brush gently over all your extensions

  • Sleeping

    We recommend you tie your hair in a loose pony tail to prevent tangling while sleeping.

  • Exercise

    Quality extensions suit most lifestyles, but may need a little extra care in these circumstances:
    – Regular swimming, particularly in sea or chlorinated water
    – Regular sauna or steam room use
    – Excessive aerobic exercise
    After these activities, use diluted Anti-Tap Water to restore your hair and scalp to its natural pH balance. Remember to always dry the bonds thoroughly.

  • Styling Your Hair

    Straighteners and heated tools can be used, however they must be kept away from the bonds
