Care and Tips


BUNDLE CARE

  • Co-washing simply means washing with conditioner. It is a key element in extending the life of your hair and keeping it healthy. We recommend a co-wash once a week with a moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs. When you first receive your extensions, it is important to co-wash the hair, prior to installation, as it has been through many hands, packaging etc. Shampooing the hair can strip the hair entirely too much of its moisture. Always use WARM water, as hot water will overexpose the cuticle of the hair.
  • Stay away from ingredients that can strip your extensions of moisture such as parabens, sulfate, and silicone. These products usually tend to have a high alcohol content which dehydrates the hair follicle of its nutrients.
  • It is essential that you wash your hair at least every 2 weeks. Oil build up and products can cause tangling and shedding.
  • Shampoo should only be used to remove product buildup, not to regularly clean your hair. Instead wash with conditioner, no more than three times a month.
  • Stay away from shampoos that contain extra moisture. Look for Clarifying Shampoos. 
  • Detangle prior to washing. If hair is not properly detangled prior to shampooing and conditioning this will cause your hair to become matted.
  • Air-drying is recommended, however, if you do use a blow dryer apply a heat protectant before the process. Excessive heat can make your extensions dull, dry and lifeless. 
  • Refrain from using too much or heavy products on your extensions. Never use products which contain protein as this can make the hair tangle and hard.
  • Please note bleaching the hair lifts the cuticle and extra love and attention is required to prevent breakage. Bleaching & coloring should only be performed by a licensed hair stylist or professional colorist.
  • When installing do not cut your weft. Cutting the weft will cause shedding.
  • Sealing your wefts isn’t necessary, but if you would like added protection against shedding seal your wefts prior to installation.
  • To prevent breakage and tangling. Sleep with a satin/silk pillowcase. Or you can use a satin/silk bonnet.
