Washing Your Extensions

  • Brush thoroughly before washing.

  • Always use professional products.

  • Only use products that are sulfate/paraben free. Use a leave-in conditioner and treat with a mask once a week if necessary.

  • Shampoo twice to get a good lather in between rows.

  • Apply conditioner mid-shift, or low ponytail down.

  • Keep the conditioner or other moisturizing products off your rows.

  •  Towel dry is recommended as much as possible.

Maintaining Your Extensions

  • Brush hair thoroughly multiple times a day.

  • With your free hand, keep pressure on the base of your row to eliminate tension and pulling while you brush your rows and brush in between each one.

  • Don't forget a daily serum.

  • Daily use of an oil /serum will help to keep your hair soft and manageable.

  • Avoid tinted oils which will tarnish blonde extensions.

Styling Your Extensions

  • If applying heat, use a heat protectant to protect from drying or discoloration.

  • Thoroughly dry the wefts. Allow for extra drying time as the weft rows are dense and hold more moisture.

  • Make sure your hair is 100% dry before styling with hot tools.

  • Recommended heat setting for hot tools is 250-300 degrees.

Bed Time

  • Be diligent about a nighttime prep routine.

  • Never go to sleep with wet hair. It can cause extreme matting and tangling. Place hair in a loose top know or braid.

  • Use a silk pillowcase to keep hair manageable and frizz-free.
