How To Care For Your Extensions

29 June


So you have a new hairstyle, but don’t know how to care for your extensions. Well here are some tips and care recommendations for your new look and new extensions!

First off, congrats on your new hairstyle! Nothing makes you feel better about yourself than a new look.  Whether you got them for length, volume, color or for fun you need to upkeep that beautiful new look! But are you now wondering how to care for your extensions and keep them looking amazing? Well we have got some tips for you!

  • Tape in extensions should be removed and re-taped every 6-10 weeks.
  • Do not wash hair extensions for 48 hours after application.  When conditioning you hair extensions, gently work the conditioner through your mid-lengths and ends, AVOIDING the scalp area.
  • Do not brush your hair extensions when wet. When brushing your extensions support the hair with one hand at the root to remove tension. Start brushing at the ends, and work your way up, not brushing at the roots!
  • One of  the most important things, washing! Keeping your hair clean is of major importance. Hair tangles when it’s dirty so don’t forget to wash your hair frequently as it is needed. Make sure to use a mild shampoo in order to protect your locks. Ask your hairstylist for advice on which product you should use for your extensions. Brush your hair gently to untangle it before washing.

How to Style

  • The biggest enemy of extensions is, heat! Therefore it is advisable to avoid blow drying as much as possible in order to ensure a longer life to your extensions. Avoid direct heat on the bond at all times!  I have 100% human extensions in my hair, and am using our No-Shine Extensions Tabs  and I use a curling iron and flat iron daily and have never had a problem with my tape giving, but I do not put the heat directly on the bond!
  • Wash your hair with gentle shampoo and lukewarm water then use a conditioner and let it air dry.  To prevent matting and knots, make sure your hair is thoroughly dry before you go to bed.

Going Swimming!

  • Salt and chemically treated water alter the pH levels of the bonds, which compromises their adhesion possibly causing them to fall out.  Additionally sea, pool or spa water strips the treatments applied to the hair wefts, dramatically reducing their life, or permanently damaging them.  It’s advisable that if you choose to go to the beach or a pool, please tie your hair up to keep it dry, or wear a swim cap.

We hope these tips are helpful to you and your new look! If you have any further questions you can reach us here. Or if you are not a customer of ours, but would like to be, click here.

    Ok, I definitely srupopt people who wear their hair natural. I tried to wear it natural but I have a lot of hair and the only way I could wear it and have it look nice is if I cut it (my beautician told me this) but I love my hair so I could never do it. Plus, it’s a lot of work since my hair is really thick and it’s long My mom wears her hair natural and it’s beautiful and looks amazing on her. But I hate when people say to wear it any other way but natural is self-hating and it’s unnatural. So are white people who bleach their hair and curl it or straighten it everyday self-hating ? Or the term only apply to girls who wear weaves or perm their hair?i meant to say, it’s, well, unnatural Isn’t it unnatural for white girls to alter the look of their hair, too?White girls wear weaves too what do you call those clip-on things? That’s not real hair.A lot of white actresses wear weaves too!WINTER BLOSSOM you are the same girl who said that you don’t like when black women wear weaves because it’s unnatural so my question for you is why do you care about how black women wear their hair?yeah sunshine same here!

      My hair is being to thin a little and know that natrual is best. Tired it last year but got fed up after while, with the process. It is just above my shoulder and would prefer not cutting my hair. My sister told me to twist it after washing, however since never being the type of girl to do my own hair, wasn’t able. Would like to be natrual, however natrual hair isn’t very straight. What is the best style for hair besides; natrual; that will not cause breakage, hair to thin, more stress? Since sweat a lot in my head at night need a style, that when get up in the morning my hair isn’t nappy, and able to go and exercise without worring. What is the best style for hair besides natrual? Braids Press, or Relaxers, and since on a budget cannot always get the a professional, and must professionals have meet always want to relex my hair. Please help.

      Hmm, it is nice hair, but I don’t think I could pull off the look. Still, I understand what you’re snayig.[] Reply:November 30th, 2009 at 8:32 PMYes you could pull it off lol.Thanks for your thoughts.[] Reply:November 30th, 2009 at 10:36 PMMy only complaint is that I seriously doubt that the celebrities really use these common products. I don’t and haven’t for years because salon products are much better on my hair I doubt these folks who can afford the very best and whose hair designers would shoot them on sight for using crap would seriously consider it. Might use it on their dog it doesn’t bother me that she has extensions at all. Lots of ordinary people use them.The other thing I hate is when they don’t show the model’s real age on the age defying moisturizers. Nothing so age defying when the girl’s only 31 (if that). Here’s where they could show real people who honestly look good. There really are some.[]VA:F [1.9.11_1134]please wait…VA:F [1.9.11_1134](from 0 votes) Reply:December 1st, 2009 at 9:32 PMThanks for the contribution Jeannie.The things you hate in an ad they will not disclose because guess what profits are what they want to make.[]VA:F [1.9.11_1134]please wait…VA:F [1.9.11_1134](from 0 votes)
