Hair extension after care
and FAQs

How to care for your hair extensions

Do not wash hair for at least 2-3 days to allow the hair extensions to adhere completely.

  • Brush your hair daily! Always start at the ends moving up.

  • Use a sulfate-free and paraben-free shampoo. Begin at the scalp and massage shampoo in  a "z" formation to wash.

  • Use a sulfate-free and paraben-free conditioner. Apply conditioner from mids to ends leave in for 2-3 mins. Do not apply conditioner near scalp, it will cause extensions to slip out.

  • Towel dry or air dry hair as much as possible before blow drying. Always put in a leave-in conditioner/heat protectant as well as treatment oils to protect your extensions.

  • Avoid products that have oil and alcohol near the point of attachment this will cause the extensions to slip out. Use professional grade products only.

  • When using hot tools keep away from point of attachment to ensure extensions do not melt or fuse together.

  • Before sleeping brush and loosely braid hair. Do not go to bed with wet hair!

  • When swimming wet hair and add leave-in conditioner. Tie a loose ponytail or braid. After swimming rinse hair extensions and spray leave-in conditioner.
