HAIR EXTENSION AFTER CARE
LONG LIVE YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS
Ensure your hair is thoroughly clean and dry before any type of hair extension application.
Avoid oily products immediately prior to procedure.
Once fitted, avoid washing for 48 hours (keratin bond application only).
WASHING YOUR EXTENSIONS
Wash your hair in an upright position, avoiding particularly hard water with high mineral content.
Gently distribute the shampoo by smoothing down the entire length of the extension hair from root to tip. Avoid the roots if using keratin bonds.
Avoid using shampoos and conditioners with sulphate and silicone.
STYLING YOUR EXTENSIONS
Do not twist your extensions in a towel when drying. Always blot gently to remove any excess water. An old T-shirt is better to use than a towel.
Comb through the hair gently using hair extension combs and brushes. Comb hair at the roots to prevent tangling.
Use sulphate free styling products.
If using keratin bonds, wait until they are completely dry before blow drying.
Ideally you should leave the hair to dry naturally. If this is not possible, do not hold the hair dryer too close to the hair and avoid any bond attachments.
Use a medium heat for all heat styling.
HAIR EXTENSION DON'Ts
Do not colour the hair at home. Always consult a professional stylist.
Do not chemically alter the hair through perming or straightening.
Do not go to bed with hair loose. Put into a plait or loose pony tail.
Do not go to bed with wet hair.
Do not use sunbeds or saunas with unprotected hair. You should wear a special cap.
