Hair Extensions Care Guide
These aftercare tips are to ensure that your hair extensions stay looking great and in top quality.
Always ensure that you: Secure your hair with one hand when brushing/detangling hair
Always brush the ends first and work your way up using a specialised extension brush
Brush hair before washing to ensure that it is tangle free
When shampooing the hair, work vertically, not in a circular motion as this will create fewer tangles.
Hair should ideally be washed in the upright position in the shower
Only condition from the ponytail down
Use a leave in conditioner on the ends of the hair to keep it soft
Avoid over using hot styling tolls on the hair
Only use the correct products on the extensions (shampoo, conditioner, heat protectors) to sustain the high quality of the hair
Shampoo your hair immediately after swimming in the sea or swimming pool to remove chlorine and salt from the hair
Tie your hair in a low loose ponytail or plait when sleeping
Things to avoid with your hair extensions
Going to bed with wet hair Conditioning the roots where the extension attachments are positioned
Attempt to maintain or remove extensions yourself
Leave your hair wet for long periods of time without detangling it or drying it
Leave your extensions in longer than advised as damage will occur.
Salt water and chlorine can be damaging to the condition and may discolour the extensions.
It is recommended that the hair is tied up or plaited out of the way whilst swimming.
Sun cream and self-tan can also discolour extensions and so it is advised that hair is tied up off of your back and neck to avoid any contact with your sun cream.
Exposure to the sun can be damaging to the condition and may discolour the extensions, it is a good idea when sunbathing that your hair is covered with a hat.
