Aftercare

Preparation

Before and AftercareHair must be clean before the extensions are fitted. Wash hair twice with a clarifying shampoo making sure all hair products are washed out thoroughly. Do not use any conditioner as this will cause the bonds to slip and make it difficulty to apply. If you usually straighten your hair please ensure it is straightened before fitting.

Aftercare

  • Do not wash your hair for 48 hours after extensions are fitted, this gives the extensions and bonds time to settle.
  • Always brush your hair before washing to get out any knots and tangles. Brush from the bottom to the top
  • Use shampoo and conditioner that is suitable for hair extensions
  • Do not massage your hair, always wash hair with your head tilted back but do not bend your head over the sink or bath as this will put extra weight on the extensions
  • Apply conditioner from below the bonds and start to comb from the ends up towards the roots but stopping before you come to the bonds
  • Rinse thoroughly, and leave to dry naturally
  • Use leave in conditioner where possible to add extra moisture to the hair

Styling

  • Always use a hair extension brush and brush carefully
  • Hair styling tools can be used on extensions but the less you use them the better it is for the extensions

Sleeping

  • Extensions should be tied back in a loose plait or ponytail whilst sleeping to avoid hair from becoming tangled
  • Each morning undo the plait/ponytail and brush fro ends to roots

Swimming

  • salt water and chlorine will dry extensions out so if swimming avoid getting your hair wet

IMPORTANT

Your hair sheds on a daily basis as part of it’s natural process losing around 50-100 strands a day. Just because you have extensions doesn’t mean this process stops. It continues but since your hair is held together by the extensions it becomes trapped therefore not falling out into your sink or brush.

When you remove your hair extensions all of the natural hair that should of come out daily would be released and it appears as thought a lot of hair is coming out at once, so don’t worry, it’s just all the daily build up in one go.

Extensions need maintaining and looking after. You have to be willing to spend time on them and have patience to look after them other wise they will not stay in good condition. Longer extensions tend to be harder to look after then shorted ones. Extensions may also itch and be uncomfortable for a few days after fitting. This tends to be just above the nape of your neck, in the middle and around your crown as these are the most sensitive areas of your scalp. This will fade as your hair becomes accustomed to the extensions.
