Maintenance- Caring For Your Hair Extensions

Brushing your hair:

  • Brush through twice a day with a soft bristled brush.
  • When brushing hair, please start from the bottom and work your way up little by little, holding your hair with the other hand near the roots.
  • Do not comb hair from the top down as it may pull.
  • Respect your roots; NEVER comb your hair from the roots.
  • Detangling on your terms- Make your own detangling spray with sulfate free conditioner.  Simply mix 1-part conditioner with 2-parts water in a spray bottle and apply to the extension hair each morning.  Be sure to finger comb your hair before using a comb or brush.

Washing:

  • Wash with a sulfate free regimen.
  • Wash as you need to, frequent shampooing may damage even the best extension hair. (Less shampooing will also help prolong your color).
  • Shampoo in warmer to cooler water rather than hot water.
  • Keep the hair clean, when dirt accumulates (including sweat) hair tangles.
  • Use good quality moisturizing hair products but avoid heavier conditioners at the root or around the bonds (will cause slipping).
  • When in the shower, take the time to run your fingers through your hair to work out any knotting at the root area.
  • Avoid oil slicks.

LONG HAIR TIP: use a regular conditioner at the root and a deeper conditioner at the ends of the hair to balance out the porosity.

Sleeping and Activities:

  • Tie hair back when sleeping to prevent pulling and tangling
  • Try to sleep on a satin pillowcase or wrap head in a satin scarf to avoid tangling.

Maintaining style:

  • Hair applied is 100% human Remy hair so styles away just keep heat away from bonds as it could cause melting.
  • When blow-drying hold the dryer about 12” away from your head and sweep the entire head rather than focused heat.
  • When blow-drying use a cooler temperature when drying root areas.

Dos and Don’ts:

  • Do not use hot tubs or saunas as this can break down bonds.
  • Do not use heat on bonds
  • Do use a cool temperature hair dryer.
  • Do not go to bed with wet hair.
  • Do tie your hair back in a braid when sleeping or being active.
  • Do use a satin pillowcase.
  • DO wear a tight swim cap when swimming; swimming in heavily chlorinated water with fusion extensions can weaken the bond.
  • Do not pull or pick at your bonds.
  • Do your regular maintenance check (recommended every 6 weeks).
