Hair Extension Maintenance Tips

As a professional hair extensions manufacturer, we are committed to ensure that every customer is satisfied. Full satisfaction of our extensions can be achieved by the following hair care tips:

 

Hand-Made Wefts
• Never cut any part of the top of the wefts. These wefts are hand-tied and delicate. If they are cut, then we can not guarantee that they will not shed.
• Never sew through the top of the weft. Although we are the only company to triple-reinforce our wefts, putting a needle through the weft will damage the wefts and cause shedding.

 

Straight Hair

Maintenance
• Shampoo at least once a week.
• Use a shampoo no higher than pH 7.
• Dilute one ounce of shampoo in a bowl or jug with a pint of warm water.
• Sponge the shampoo into the hair.
• Do not massage.
• Rinse thoroughly.
• Apply conditioner and comb hair, starting with the ends working your way up to your scalp.
• Do not rinse all of the conditioner out of your hair.
• Let air-dry.

 

Daily
• Brush or comb through to style.
• Use styling aids, such as mousse, gel, and hairspray in moderation (preferably alcohol free products).

 

Sleep
• Before going to bed, braid your hair into one loose large braid at the back of the neck.
After waking up, undo braid and comb through, beginning at the ends and working your way up to roots.

Specific Conditions

Static
• In colder months, you may experience some static. The best way to deal with this is to wet your hands with water, and rub hand together so they are warm. Run the palms of your hands over your hair, without actually touching your hair. This process should help control the static.

 

Swimming
It is not recommended that you swim with extension hair. However if you do, the following precautions are recommended.
• Never wear a swimming cap or anything that covers your hair, the friction may cause matting.
• Before swimming comb out tangles.
• Braid hair into one braid at back of neck.
• Try to keep head above water, do not swim under water, no diving.
• After swimming keep head out of shower.
• Immediately after showering undo braid, comb hair and let air-dry.
• Follow with appropriate shampooing and conditioning as needed.

 

Sauna
• Braid hair into one braid at back of neck.
• The water of the sauna will penetrate the hair and wet it.
• Do not wrap hair in towel, which will compress it.
• After sauna keep head out of shower.
• Immediately after showering undo braid, comb hair and let air-dry.
• Follow with appropriate shampooing and conditioning as needed.

 

Sunbathing
• Braid hair into one braid at back of neck.
• After sunbathing do not unbraid until hair has cooled down.
• Undo braid, comb hair.
• Follow with appropriate shampooing and conditioning as needed.

 

Miscellaneous Tips

• Although the extension hair is real, it is not receiving nutrients from the scalp like your own hair. Heat is your hair extensions’ biggest enemy. The more you use on it, the shorter the life span of your hair. We cannot guarantee that the hair will remain silky if you use the blow dry, flat iron, or curling iron.

• When you sleep, we highly recommend that you braid, wrap or ponytail your hair together to prevent tangling. This will save time that would be spent untangling the hair the next morning.
