Caring for Your Extensions

Washing

A clean scalp is a healthy scalp! When sweat and dirt build up your hair tangles. Use a good quality shampoo and conditioner. There are products available specially formulated for use with natural human hair extensions. Soak extensions for about ten minutes. Detangle your extensions by combing down from the end, then from the mid-length, and finally all the way down to the roots before shampooing. Wash your hair gentle in a downward motion (from the roots to the ends). Rubbing can cause the hair to tangle. When you’re done rinse your hair thoroughly. Make sure that your hair is clean before you use a hair conditioner.

Condition your hair after every wash.
Your extensions don’t receive the natural oils from your scalp! Do not apply conditioner in the root area or near the attachments. It can loosen the bonds and make your extensions fall out. Dry your hair gently, don’t rub it with a towel but move in a downward motion from roots to ends. Gently detangle your hair.

Styling
It is better to avoid heat. Heat is your one of your hair’s biggest enemy, the more you use it, the shorter your hair extensions will last. Be careful with the use of blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons. Do not use hot tools directly on the tape tabs of your Tape In extensions. It will weaken the adhesive and they will fall out. It is best to let your hair dry naturally.
Use a special brush for hair extensions when brushing your hair (soft bristle brush). It is best to start at the ends of your hair and when all tangles are removed gently work your way up. Always brush in a downward motion. Brush your hair a few times a day.

Hair styling products
Use a good (leave-in) conditioner to keep your hair soft. Don’t over do it. To much conditioner or any other hair care product can cause a build up and tangling. Avoid hair products that contain alcohol it will makes hair dry.

**Remember**
Let them soak for about ten minutes.
When detangling your extensions. Comb down from the end, then from the mid-length and finally all the way down from the roots.
