Aftercare Advice

DO’s

  • Treat your Hair Extensions in the same way and with the same respect as you would natural long hair
  • When brushing your Hair Extensions, always go gently and work from the bottom upwards
  • Only use a proper Hair Extension Brush or Tangle Teezer near your bonds or Micro Rings. These are designed to gently glide over the attachments without causing any damage.
  • Always brush out all knots before washing your Hair Extensions
  • Wash your hair upright with the water running down your back (i.e standing in a shower etc)
  • Only use a shampoo that is suitable for Hair Extensions
  • Use a good quality conditioner on the mid-lengths and ends only
  • Apply a leave-in conditioner / protein spray after washing and before styling. Because the Hair Extensions will not receive your natural scalp oils, they will need to have moisture replaced regularly on the mid-lengths and ends. Lack of moisture will cause your Hair Extensions to become brittle and break easily leading to split and ratty ends.
  • Try to tie your hair in a loose ponytail or plait before bed to avoid tangles
  • Separate your bonds / Micro Rings with your fingers regularly to help discourage and tangles in your new hair growth
  • Wash your hair as soon as possible after swimming to avoid damage to your Hair Extensions and bonds / rings
  • Ensure you have regular maintenance checks (recommended every 4-6weeks)

DONT’s

  • Do not wash your hair for at least 48 hours after having your Hair Extensions fitted. This will allow them time to set and relax
  • Never use a shampoo that contains silicone or a silicone derivative like Dimethicone etc. This will break down your bonds and will cause the Hair Extensions to slip out
  • Never get conditioner on your bonds or Micro Rings. This will break down your bonds or clog up your rings and will cause the Hair Extensions to slip out
  • Avoid getting styling products (especially those containing silicone) on your bonds as this can also cause the bonds to weaken which may cause the Hair Extensions to slip out
  • Don’t wash your hair upside down (i.e tipping your head over a bath). This will put additional strain on your roots and bonds / rings. It will also cause tangling.
  • Do not colour, chemically straighten or perm your extensions
  • Don’t brush harshly or tug the Hair Extensions as it can loosen and damage the connections
  • Don’t twist, wring or rub the extensions when wet – always squeeze excess water out instead. The same applies when towel drying
  • DON’T PICK at the bonds or Micro Rings!
  • Avoid washing your Hair Extensions more than 2 or 3 times a week. The top of your hair (crown and front area) can be washed more frequently if necessary. Alternatively, dry shampoo (i.e Batiste) is great for freshening up Hair Extensions in between washes.
