Extensions Care Guide

Looking after your human hair extensions is very important in order to increase the life of them. They especially need attention as they are going through the same conditions as your hair (air conditioning, fumes, sun, etc.) without the same oils and nutrients from your skin to combat the negative effects.

 

Washing your hair extensions

Before shampooing, gently remove any tangles from your human hair extensions. Use salon purchased Shampoo and Conditioner only, or purchase care products from our online store.

Run the hair extensions under warm (not hot) water. Gently work the shampoo into the hair, mix into your shampoo some conditioner (about half and half), stroking downwards from the weft base (top) to the ends. Do not twist, scrub or rub the hair. 
When clean, rinse thoroughly under warm running water until the water runs clear. Be sure to rinse until all shampoo is removed.

Gently work Conditioner into the hair extensions and leave for fifteen minutes. Rinse conditioner out. 

Lay your hair extensions on a towel to dry or blow dry on a low heat setting.

Your human hair clip-in extensions will not require washing as often as your own hair, wash only when they start to look dull and lifeless. The less your clip in hair extensions are washed the longer they will last.

Never use anti-dandruff products on your human hair extensions. 

 

Brushing your hair extensions

Hold your hair extensions tightly around the top and brush knots out. Always start brushing knots out from the bottom of hair working your way up. Always brush your human hair extensions gently using a hair extension loop brush or soft bristle brush. A hair extension loop brush is designed to stop any damage or breakage when you are brushing your hair, keeping it tangle free.

Never use a hard bristle brush as this will cause breakage in the hair extensions.

Drying your hair extensions

Gently brush your human hair extensions while they are wet.  Use a warm or cool heat setting on your dryer. Always use a heat protector when using any heat on your hair extensions.

 

Curling or Straightening Irons

Always use a heat protector, and use on lowest heat setting when using heat on your hair extensions. We recommend using a serum after straightening your hair extensions.  Note: leaving irons on the hair too long will scorch your hair extensions.

Tip:  Always make sure your irons are clean, otherwise you are ironing dirt build up, into your human hair extensions.

 

Perming hair extensions

Only Hairdressers should do this, using the lightest perming solution. Always use the testing strands supplied or do a small test strand on the hair extensions to ensure you get the desired results.

 

Colouring hair extensions

Only Hairdressers should do this; as per normal colouring.  Always complete a test strand on your hair extensions to ensure you get the desired results, remembering human hair extensions are chemically processed hair.  We recommend only colouring your human hair extensions 1-2 shades darker.  DO NOT bleach your hair extensions.

 

Storing your clip in extensions 

Store your clip in human hair extensions with the clips closed.
Do not sleep with your clip in hair extensions in your hair.

 

Oils

Using an Argan Oil or Morrocan Oil is also very good for the hair extensions. With oils you must always use them as per the manufactures instructions, apply only a few drops to damp hair and comb through.
It is important to use Certified Argan Oil products, as they don’t have manufactured silicones in them. Certified Argan Oil products are 100% Natural and Organic. They do make your hair feel beautiful. They also provide shine to your hair, are humidity resistant, and speeds up the drying time of your hair up to 50%. 

Coconut Oil is extremely good for your own hair and your human hair extensions. Coconut oil nourishes and helps to repair your hair; you will instantly feel the difference. Your hair will be soft and silky.

 

Important Tips for Hair Extensions

Remember for healthy hair your hair needs 4 balances - Protein, Natural Oils (Argan Oil is one of these), PH Balance and Moisture, this is no different for your human hair extensions.
Always use heat protector when applying heat to your hair extensions (blow dryer, straighteners, curling irons, rollers etc.

 

Sporting

Always tie your hair up before swimming or engaging in sports. Chlorine or sea water will affect the hair as it does your natural hair so it is important to shampoo and condition as directed immediately after such activities.  Products containing Sulphurous substances (e. g thermal baths) will affect the hair and therefore it is recommended to tie your hair up.  It is best to take clip in hair extensions out before swimming or to thoroughly wet your hair, as when your hair is wet, the hair shaft is swollen and will not absorb as much chlorine or salts and sulphurous substances.


Finishing products

DO NOT use products containing any alcohol. When using waxes, gels, serums or oils avoid contact with the tape, use on mid lengths to ends.
