These are my simple guidelines to maintain you hair extensions so that they will continue to look and feel natural.
For best results use a wet brush and shine brush to care for & to be gentle on your extensions to avoid pulling on and damaging the extensions.
As a kerastase specialist i reccomend Before washing hair extensions, brush gently with your shine brush. De-tangle the ends then brush from the roots to the tips. Make sure that the hair extensions have been separated in the root area.
Wash extensions with a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner for best results use Kerastase Fluidissime.
DO NOT rub or massage when washing, wash hair extensions in a downward motion. Using your fingers to stroke the shampoo gently into the hair from the roots to the tips.
Apply conditioner, avoid bonded areas near the scalp. After washing and conditioning, wrap a towel around the hair and pat gently to remove excess water. It is best to let your hair dry naturally. Gently tie or plait your hair before sleeping on it to prevent tangling.
Always hold the hair extensions whilst brushing to avoid placing tension on the roots, never back comb the roots area. Electric curling tongs, straighteners and hot brushes may be used, but avoid the bonded areas.
Wear a swimming cap when swimming or keep your hair out of the water. Chlorine and salt water can cause hair extensions to tangle and mat.
For the first few days of your style, the extensions may feel a bit tight. This is normal and to be expected. After 2/3 days, the extensions will feel perfectly natural. It is expected to lose up to 10 single strand extensions.follow these tips and your hair should look and feel great.
