Hair Care Instructions

 

Hair extensions do not receive natural oils from your scalp like natural hair. This requires some extra care when washing to ensure that one does not dry them out. As a rule of thumb, hair should be washed and conditioned every 3-4 days.

 

Note: Using high quality products will extend the life of your natural 100% human hair extensions.

 

You Will Need:

1. Soft bristle hairbrush

2. Low pH/High moisturizing shampoo and conditioner

3. Comb

 

The Process:

Brush hair thoroughly prior to washing to remove any knots and/or tangles. Start at the bottom and gently work your way to the top being cautious not to pull on the hair


•      Wash extensions using a gentle, moisturizing shampoo. Avoid using harsh shampoos containing sulfur, such as anti-dandruff products.
•     For permanent applications gently message the scalp, tilting your head back, avoiding extended scrubbing of the hair extension.
•     For applications with clips, first remove the extension then gently wash avoiding excessive scrubbing.
•     Thoroughly rinse with warm water.
•     Apply a hydrating conditioner (either a leave-in or rinse-out) as product directs. Always apply from hair
mid-point to tips avoiding hair extension connection points and scalp region.
•     Wash only as needed (not daily) to prolong the life of your extension. Extensions applied with clips can be washed less frequently.



Drying:
Air dry whenever possible to extend the life of your extensions. Hair dryers may be used as desired.
Air dry Gently pat dry hair, making sure not to twist or ring hair.

Blow dry
A thermal-protectant is recommended to minimize the damage caused by heat. Use as product directed.

Hair Dyeing Tip From Image Beauty Supply


The easiest solution is to color your own hair to match the hair extension. If dying your own hair is not an option, the hair extension can be dyed. Generally dying human hair extensions is discouraged since the hair extension has already been chemically processed. Consult with a professional and strand test before dying the entire hair extension.
