Maintenance Tips

Aftercare

To ensure that your extensions maintain their beautiful appearance, it is essential to use high-quality salon-grade hair care products that are sulfate-free.

Proper accessories and tools can also make a significant difference.

– Avoid washing your hair for 24-48 hours after your tape-in installation. Wefts can be washed immediately.

– Keep your extensions clean and untangled.

– Use a high-quality, sulfate-free hydrating shampoo and conditioner. 

– Oil from mid-length to ends at least once a day, avoiding the root area.

– Never sleep with wet hair extensions. Always make sure the hair is dry and pulled up or braided to keep the hair from tangling at night

– Avoid towel rubbing your hair extensions, as this can cause friction damage. Instead, gently press the towel against your hair and squeeze.

– Always use heat protection on your hair extensions and not exceeding 160° with heat tools. 

– Invest in a silk or satin pillowcase.

Washing extensions

Cleanse

— Brush out any tangles in your hair BEFORE showering to avoid matting.

— Always use SULFATE FREE shampoo & conditioner.

— Gently scrub your scalp with sulfate free shampoo using the pads of your fingers and make sure to get in between your rows.

— Rinse thoroughly.

— Apply sulfate free conditioner to mid lengths and ends.

— We recommend using a weekly hair mask to keep the hair in optimal condition.

Knot to worry

Brushing

— To properly brush, we recommend sectioning your hair and exposing the bottom section first. Hold the Seam/bond with one hand gently brush starting at the bottom and working your way up.

— Never brush across the bonds of the extensions.

— Next, drop down the next section and repeat the same process brushing from the bottom and working your way up the extensions.

Drying extensions

Blow-Dry

Now that you have extensions, your blow dry might take a bit longer!…

— First, get as much moisture out of your extensions using a towel.

— Next, get 80% of the moisture out of your extensions using only your hands and blow dryer. Make sure to point the blow-dryer down, towards your ends to help cut down on tangles.

— Once your hair is 80% dried, you can then use a round brush to style the extensions with minimal tension.

— We do not recommend air-drying your extensions. Air drying can lead to chaffing on the scalp. If you must, make sure to hit the seams of the wefts/tapes with the blow dryer to ensure the hair along the seam is dry. (Your scalp will thank you!)

Get that Beauty

Sleep

— Always brush your hair before bed.

— We recommend sleeping with your hair in a loose braid or low-loose ponytail using a scrunchie.

— For extra care, sleep on a silk pillowcase.

Poolside care

Swimming

— We do not recommend going in salt water or chlorine with hair extensions. Always wear your hair up when heading to the pool or ocean.

— SPF protection that is not mineral based can stain hair extensions. Particularly blonde hair extensions are susceptible to discoloration. Brunettes may notice a slight colour change too. We recommend only using a MINERAL BASED SUNSCREEN.

Any use of a sunscreen that is not mineral based has ingredients called Avobenzone & Octocrylene that will turn the extensions a “pinky-orange” colour.

— To help keep your hair extensions colour from fading, we recommend wearing a sunhat when you’re exposed to sunlight for long periods of time.
