Tip 1: Application
The application process is carried out by certified Diana Hair stylists who have undergone extensive training in the correct techniques. They will assess the condition of your hair and carefully apply the extensions, considering factors such as the weight and tension on your natural hair. Your Diana Hair stylist will provide you with comprehensive aftercare instructions, including guidance on how to wash, brush, and style your extensions without causing damage. By following these guidelines and using the recommended products, you can ensure the long-term health and vitality of your hair and extensions.
Tip 2: Lifestyle
Your lifestyle choices and habits can significantly impact the health of your Diana Hair extensions. Washing your hair too frequently can lead to dryness and damage. Prior to bedtime, secure your hair in a loose braid or bun to prevent tangling and minimize friction. Opt for a satin or silk pillowcase to reduce friction and prevent breakage while sleeping. Schedule regular maintenance appointments with your stylist to ensure that the extensions are well-maintained. This may involve adjusting the bonds or tapes, detangling, and ensuring that the extensions remain in excellent condition. Before swimming in chlorinated or saltwater pools, dampen your hair and apply a leave-in conditioner or protective oil to create a barrier against damaging elements. After swimming, thoroughly rinse your hair with clean water to remove any chlorine or salt residue.
Tip 3: Quality
Diana Hair uses ethically sourced, 100% donor-consented human hair of the utmost quality. This guarantees that the extensions are made from remy hair with all the cuticles aligned in the same direction, reducing the risk of damaging tangles. The organic hydrolyzed bonds expand with your natural hair, minimizing the risk of damage. Diana Hair extensions are virgin and never subjected to chemical treatments; instead, lightening is achieved through osmosis baths, further enhancing the hair’s quality.
Tip 4: Products
Using high-quality products can extend the lifespan of your extensions and promote overall hair health. Employing leave-in conditioners effectively cleanses both your hair and extensions without stripping them of moisture. These products hydrate, detangle, and nourish the hair, reducing the risk of dryness, breakage, and damage. Diana Hair’s Anti-Tap Water is specifically designed to counteract the harmful effects of tap water on hair extensions. It helps eliminate impurities and mineral deposits that can lead to dryness and dullness.
Tip 5: Styling
Prior to using heat styling tools on your natural hair and extensions, always apply heat protection to create a barrier and minimize the risk of heat damage. Consider using lower heat settings and reducing the duration of heat application to your hair and extensions. Alternatively, explore heatless styling techniques such as loose hairstyles like braids or updos adorned with gentle accessories that avoid using metal. Another strategy is to utilize a wide-toothed comb or a brush designed for extensions to detangle your hair. Begin from the ends and work your way up, taking care not to pull or tug on the extensions. Avoid sleeping with wet hair, as it can result in tangling and potential damage to both your natural hair and the extensions.
Tip 6: Removal
Proper removal of Diana Hair extensions by a certified stylist is a crucial step in minimizing potential damage to your natural hair. With the correct technique, they will take their time to carefully release the bonds or tapes, ensuring minimal pulling or tugging on your hair. This approach helps minimize the risk of breakage or damage.
To begin, Diana Hair certified stylists employ professional-grade products specifically designed for extension removal. Moreover, these products are formulated to gently break down the adhesive or bond, allowing for easy and safe removal without compromising the health of your natural hair.
After the extensions have been removed, a certified stylist can offer guidance on post-removal care and may recommend specific products or treatments to nourish and rejuvenate your natural hair.
