Your 100% Real hair extensions can last up to 2 years but generally people are encouraged to re-apply hair extensions every six weeks or at least get them tightened and treated should you wish to keep them in longer. Daily we recommend alcohol free styling products if possible. As a general rule, we recommend you use products that you would use on your own hair, as the hair is 100% natural and needs the same amount of care and attention.
If you sleep wearing your hair extensions, we recommend brushing or combing your hair, braid them or put them in a loose ponytail first, to minimise tangling. This should also be done if you are doing anything energetic that will cause the hair to tangle!
We recommend washing your hair in downward movements using your fingertips to wash your scalp. The same applies when rinsing the hair.
Apply a modest amount of rich conditioner, like Hair Cholesterol, Hydrating Hair mask and leave in for 30 minutes. Gently comb working from the bottom up with a wide tooth comb to ensure even coverage and detangling. Rinse in the same manner and allow hair to air dry. Only blow-dry when necessary. As conditioning is vital to your maintenance regime, we suggest you deep condition your hair twice a month and leave in for 2 hours this is to ensure that all shampoo and conditioner is removed.
Squeeze dry excess water with a towel. Whilst hair is still damp, apply a reasonable amount of hair serum of Valencia Rose Serum or Valencia Rose Revitalising Oil whilst the hair is still damp before leaving it to air dry. This will give your hair a lovely healthy shine.
Make sure you restore the moisture in your hair and never allow it to get dry. This is to prevent shedding, tangling and split ends. Please note conditioner and serum are the best forms of moisturiser. Remember not to use excessive amounts of serum as this will weigh the hair down and make it look greasy. No more than 2 pumps of product is necessary If you follow the simple instructions above we can guarantee that weft hair extensions can last up to 2 years, something we pride ourselves on.
Avoid brushing your hair extensions roughly, which leads to hair damage. Remember, the hair does not grow back. Use a soft-bristled brush, start at the bottom, and slowly work your way up. Whether your extensions are semi-permanent or clip-in, try not to tug or play (twirling around your finger) with them, as they will loosen.
Air dry your human hair extensions or if you must, blow dry at a low setting, using a diffuser. Curling and flat irons damage extensions, decreasing their longevity. If you want to use a heated styling tool, it’s best to apply a protectant spray that’s light and doesn’t feel greasy. Consult your stylist for recommendations.
Keep your locks tangle free by gently combing with a wide tooth comb bottom up avoiding any tension. Bendy rollers can be used at night. We recommend enhancing your waves with hot tools including curling wands, tongs and straighteners / flat irons. Use a good brand leave-in conditioner especially for curly hair. This helps retain softness and revives the hair. Avoid products containing alcohol as this leaves the hair feeling dry and damaged.
Keep Ends Trimmed
As careful as you are, your human-hair extensions will most likely get split ends. To avoid letting the damage move up the hair shaft, trim the ends every 6-10 weeks. You can do it yourself using salon scissors, or go to a hairstylist.
If you bleach, tint or perm your hair, you risk drying out your hair extensions. We cannot guarantee the longevity of any hair that has been chemically treated.We strongly recommend you seek salon assistance in dyeing/ Colouring your hair extensions as we cannot guarantee results or be held responsible for failed dye attempts that results in damage or wrong colour creations.
Please carefully read the labels of all hair products. Do not use any of the hair products listed above if you are allergic. Be sure to strand test first. We strongly suggest you follow these essential tips in order to extend the longevity of your hair extensions. Remember, as the hair isn't growing directly from your scalp, it is imperative that you keep your locks fully hydrated and cared for.
