Hair Extension Care

Taking Care of Your Hair Extensions

Washing + Conditioning

Washing and conditioning should always be done with professional hair care products your stylist recommends. This is your first line of defense against damage and tangles.

BE SURE TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES WHEN WASHING YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS:

Be sure to brush before showering to ensure all the tangles are out. Always try to dry the roots of your hair extensions every time you wash. No need to wash every day, 2-3 times a week is plenty, and dry shampoo is a girl’s best friend. When you do wash, don’t be afraid of the roots. You won’t pull them out we promise, wash all over your scalp to the ends. When conditioning, ALWAYS only apply conditioner from the ponytail down. You should always keep conditioner and oils away from the point of attachment for any extension method.

Blow-drying + Styling

BLOWDRYING AND STYLING ARE FINE AND CAN BE DONE JUST LIKE YOUR NATURAL HAIR. JUST BE SURE TO DO THESE THINGS TO KEEP DAMAGE AT BAY:

Always use a blow dry heat protecting spray and oil on the extensions BEFORE drying. Try not to use heat on the extensions more than 3-4 times a week. Always apply oil every day even when dry. Be sure to use a wet brush when brushing the extensions as to not snag the root.

Extensions + Sleeping

SLEEPING IS A QUESTION WE GET A LOT ABOUT HAIR EXTENSIONS:

Always wear it in a braid, pony, or bun. You will thank us later when you aren’t ripping through tangles in the morning. Try a satin pillowcase if your natural hair tangles easily.

Working Out

Working out is nothing to worry about, just try not to wear tight headbands and ponytails for extended periods of time.

At The Beach or Pool

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. CHLORINE AND SALT WATER CAN BE VERY DAMAGING TO EXTENSIONS OF ALL KINDS.

NEVER EVER let your extensions flow freely or unbound in any way in chlorine or salt water, this will result in a tangled mess that will surely hurt your feelings. If you prefer braided looks beachside/poolside, be sure to take them out and revert to your old friend, the ponytail, before flipping your fins. Braided extensions can swell when submerged and create tangles.

WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN POOLS OR AT BEACHES HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE EASY BUT JUST REQUIRE A BIT OF PREP:

  • Wet hair in a shower or with clean fresh water.
  • Apply conditioner and leave in.
  • Apply oil from ears down.
  • Keep hair in a low or high ponytail.

Shampoo and condition like normal and follow styling tips from above.
