Hair Extensions Aftercare Advice

 

Keep your Hair Extensions looking shiny & new for longer

 

Synthetic Hair

 

Washing

First, using a wide-tooth comb make sure you very gently remove any knots and tangles. In a sink mix a little mild shampoo (try make sure it doesn’t contain sulphates) with cool water and immerse your synthetic hair. Leave to soak for 5 minutes then gently rinse with cool water. Never rub or scrub the hair as this can cause knots that will totally ruin your hair.

Conditioning

It’s very important to use conditioner on your synthetic hair to reduce any sort of tangling. Again, fill a sink with cool water and add a small amount of conditioner. Place your synthetic hair into the hair and gently run your fingers through it so the conditioner can be evenly distributed. Remove the hair from the sink and blot dry – DO NOT RINSE OUT THE CONDITIONER.

Drying

Never rub, wring out or brush your synthetic hair when wet as this can cause really bad knots. Simply let the hair dry naturally, apply a detangling spray and comb gently with a wide-tooth comb when completely dry.

Styling

Only ever use a very cool setting on electrical stylers for your synthetic hair extensions or they will melt. It is recommended to try not use any heat on them at all though to make them last as long as possible as every time they are used it does damage the hair.

 

Human Hair

 

Washing

Around once every six weeks, place your human hair extensions into a sink of lukewarm water that has a small amount of moisturising shampoo diluted in it. Keeping the seams and clips out of the water swirl your extensions around gently for a few minutes. Remove the hair from the solution and gently run cold water down the extensions from the clips to the ends to rinse them out.

Conditioning

Squeeze any excess water out and apply a conditioning treatment to the human hair extensions then comb through gently with a wide-tooth comb. Lay the hair onto a towel, cover and leave for an hour or so. Rinse the conditioner thoroughly with cold water and apply a leave-in conditioner to penetrate the hair further.

Drying

Hair dryers can be used on human hair extensions but to prolong the life or your extensions leave them to dry naturally in a towel laid out nice and flat to prevent any tangles.

Stying

Always apply a good quality heat protection spray to your human hair extensions before styling and comb gently from the clips to the ends of the hair. You can use a variety of styling tools on human hair extensions but just remember, the less they are used the longer the hair will last you.

 

PLEASE NOTE: When storing your extensions please make sure that they are tangle free and stored somewhere cool, dry and out of direct sunlight. Do not sleep or swim in your extensions and do not bleach or lighten them as this can cause bad tangles that may ruin them.
