Hair Extensions Brush

Brush Your Hair Often and Never When It's Wet

Brushing your extensions after washing them and ensuring they are completely dry is a crucial step in maintaining their quality. Wet hair is particularly vulnerable to damage, so this practice minimizes the risk of breakage and shedding. It's important to note that hair is more prone to breakage when it is wet. Instead, it is advisable to use your fingers to gently untangle any knots while the hair is still damp. To prevent shedding and breakage, take care to brush your extensions delicately. Start from the ends and gradually work your way up to the roots.


Hair Extensions Treatment with Coconut Oil

Use the Right Products on Your Hair

A good hair product can make all the difference between tangles and soft, manageable extensions. You should purchase products specifically designed for dry and damaged hair in order to keep the strands healthy and nourished. Adding moisture to your hair is also possible with products like argan oil, coconut oil, and castor oil. For the health of your extensions, it is imperative to purchase products that are free of sulphates. Hair integrity will be compromised by these ingredients as they strip it of natural oils. In turn, this causes the hair to be drier and more likely to tangle or mat.

Hair Extensions Care Instructions

Be sure to read the ingredients

It is generally not recommended to use hair products that contain alcohol on hair extensions, as alcohol can be very drying and damaging to both natural hair and synthetic hair. Alcohol can strip the hair of its natural oils, causing it to become brittle, frizzy, and prone to breakage. This can result in the extensions looking dull, lifeless, and less natural.

If you need to use a hair product, it is best to opt for those that are alcohol-free or have a low alcohol content. You can also look for products that are specifically designed for use on hair extensions, as these will be formulated to be gentler and more nourishing for the hair.

It's also important to keep in mind that not all hair extensions are created equal, and some may be more susceptible to damage from alcohol-based products than others. Before using any new product on your extensions, it's always a good idea to read the label and check the ingredients, or consult with a hair professional to ensure that it's safe to use.

Use a Water Soluble Silicone based Conditioner

Silicone is a common ingredient found in many hair care products, including shampoos, conditioners, hairsprays, and serums. It is a synthetic polymer with hydrophobic properties that create an impenetrable seal on the hair, helping to smooth the cuticle and retain moisture.

Silicones are categorized into three types based on their solubility: non-water soluble, partially soluble, and water-soluble.

Non-water soluble silicones are thick and heavy on the hair, leaving a wax-like texture, and cannot be washed away by water alone. Over time, non-water soluble silicones can cause build-up on the hair, which is not only unpleasant to the touch but can also negatively affect hair health. To remove non-water soluble silicones, shampoos containing sulfates are necessary as they break down the silicone on the hair.

Partially soluble silicones, on the other hand, will eventually evaporate after the conditioner has been applied, but hair that has used partially soluble silicones will still need to use sulfate shampoos to remove any product buildup and ensure healthy hair. Product buildup can be detrimental to hair health, and it's crucial to avoid it as much as possible.

Water-soluble silicones are the best type of silicone. They are lightweight and leave hair feeling silky smooth and soft. Unlike non-water soluble and partially soluble silicones, water-soluble silicones can be washed away by water alone, without the need for shampoo or any other product. Water-soluble silicones are the most desirable type of silicone as they are easy to wash off and do not cause any buildup on the hair.

When it comes to hair extensions, it is important to use a sulphate-free shampoo with a water soluble silicone conditioner to avoid product build-up.

In summary, it is not a matter of whether silicone is bad for hair and extensions, but rather which types of silicones are harmful. Water soluble silicones are the best option.

It is generally advisable to avoid silicone at first or to only use a leave-in conditioner, conditioner or hair treatment once a week. As soon as you notice that the hair is becoming more difficult to comb, you should increase the frequency of care with products containing water soluble silicone.

Quaternium-26 (Water soluble Silicone) enhances the appearance and feel of hair by increasing hair body, suppleness or sheen. It may also improve the texture of hair that has been damaged physically or by chemical treatment. Quaternium-26 also prevents or inhibits the buildup of static electricity. Pantene 3 Minute Miracle

Hydrate Your Hair Extensions 

Your extensions don't absorb oils like your natural hair, so you don't have to wash them as often. A general rule of thumb is to wash your extensions as little as possible so they last as long as possible. You should always hydrate your extensions before and after washing them by applying a moisturising sulphate-free and alcohol-free conditioner.

 It may even be possible to skip the shampoo and only co-wash your extensions with conditioner! At the end, rinse the extensions with cold water to seal in moisture and close cuticles.

You can apply a deep conditioning treatment or mask to your extensions when you notice they are dry or tangled. By doing so, they will be hydrated and rehydrated, and they will be softer and easier to style. For Clip In Extensions, dampen them and apply a generous amount of a sulphate and alcohol-free deep conditioning treatment or conditioner. Let them soak for 5-6 hours or overnight by putting them in a plastic bag or shower cap. Rinse off as normal the next day.

Use an Oil Treatment on Your Extensions

Infusing your hair extensions with oil, such as coconut oil, is another way to rehydrate them. Put two tablespoons of coconut oil in a saucepan and heat it until it melts. Afterward, apply the product to dry hair, starting at the mid-shaft and working your way down. The best results can be achieved by leaving this treatment on overnight. Afterwards, wash the extensions as usual. You may need to shampoo your extensions twice to remove all of the coconut oil from the hair since coconut oil is very heavy.

Do Not Use Oil Before Heat Styling As This Could Burn Your Hair Extensions

Hair Extensions Care

Carefully Handle Your Hair Extensions

In addition to improper hair care, extensions can also suffer from improper care. You should wash the extensions gently and avoid rubbing them vigorously when washing. When you are finished with the extensions, gently squeeze out any excess water. You should never rub your extensions dry with a towel. Instead, always lay them out on a flat surface and gently pat them dry or when air drying, use microfiber towels to remove excess moisture faster.

Hair Extensions Heat Protector

A Heat Protector Must Always Be Used When Heat Styling

After every wash, we do not recommend blow drying your extensions because this will make them dry and more prone to breakage. It is highly recommended that you air dry your extensions for the safest route, as this will also prevent tangles. Additionally, we recommend using a heat protectant spray before using any heat styling tool to extend the life of your hair extensions. Moreover, we recommend using only a low heat setting of 60-180 degrees Celsius to avoid damaging the hair.

If you need to use your extensions immediately after washing them, make sure that you are using a cool setting to avoid any heat damage, and that you do not brush the hair until it is 90% dry. The best way to blow dry wefts is to start with the roots and work your way downward. It is always recommended to blow-dry downwards so that not only will the cuticle be smoothed but the hair will also avoid becoming tangled due to the varied directions in which it is being blown.

Hair Products That Are Heavy Should Be Limited

You can prevent tangling by limiting the number of products you apply to your hair. It is likely to clog up your extensions when you use sticky products like hairspray, gel, or wax. Using more products will result in you washing your extensions more often, causing them to become dry and tangled. Additionally, any products you use on your natural hair can transfer to your extensions. 

Care Information & Dying Hair Extensions

Dying Hair Extensions Disclaimer.

Results may vary with different brands and types of hair extensions and dyes. We cannot be held responsible for any issues that may occur during or after the dying/toning process as the reaction and application methods may vary. To ensure desired results, it is recommended to test the dye/toner on a small piece of hair before fully committing to the process.

Dying/toning can be a drastic change as the chemicals involved can negatively affect the texture, quality, and longevity of the extensions. The product may experience increased dryness, shedding, tangling, and breakage. Our hair extensions undergo a rigorous dying and bleaching process to achieve their stunning shades.
