Care Guide for Human Hair Extensions

Congratulations on your purchase of 100% human hair extensions! The following tips will help you keep your extensions looking and feeling the best. Hair extensions do not produce nutrients and oils the way our natural hair receives from our scalp, so you must treat them with the utmost care and ensure that they stay moisturized.

It is advisable not to color, perm, or apply any chemical treatments. Please be extra careful with blonde and other light colored hair; they are more chemically processed than dark hair and we are not responsible for the outcome.

*For sanitation reasons it is prohibited to return or exchange any wigs, clip-ins, or hairpieces. Due to the nature of our products we will not return or exchange any open, worn, or otherwise used merchandise. However, since natural hair is reactive to a simple wash and deep conditioning product, issues or concerns can often easily be remedied by implementing a simple care regimen. Please do not hesitate to call or visit us with any questions or concerns you may have.

  1. Make sure you *brush the hair daily and apply leave-in conditioner or a light oil as necessary so that the hair is soft and moisturized. A good leave-in hair treatment can keep the hair from drying out, but remember not to use too much otherwise it will create buildup and make the hair feel dirty and too heavy.
  2.  With regular usage we suggest that you wash the hair at least once a week with lukewarm water (Clip-In extensions may be washed less frequently, depending on usage). Before washing the hair, make sure to detangle it entirely from the bottom to the top.
  3.  Gradually wet the hair and *wash it with a professional grade moisturizing shampoo and conditioner; we recommend Joico K-Pak or Moisture Recovery shampoo and conditioner. Be sure to wash the hair in one direction without wringing or twisting the hair. Rinse the hair completely with water and towel dry. It is best to air dry.
  4. *NEVER SLEEP ON WET OR LOOSE HAIR. Make sure the hair is completely dry before going to bed and make a couple of big braids or wrap the hair when going to sleep, swim, or exercise.

-When swimming always wear a cap to prevent prolonged exposure to chlorine or salt water which causes the hair to tangle. After swimming, always wash the hair right away with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. When going to the spa, the hair should be brushed out completely and should be wrapped in a cold, wet towel. Also wash the hair immediately after exercising. Dirt and sweat accumulate and create tangles.

-Keeping products (especially those with a high alcohol content) and heat to a minimum will prolong the life of your extensions.

Strand by Strand Extensions

  • Do not shampoo for the first two days after application.
  • The tips (approximately 1” from the bond & scalp) should not come into contact with any heat (blow dryers, hot rollers, curling & straightening irons), as this will weaken the bond.
  • Always brush with a loop brush. Brush row by row, ends to roots.
    -Keratin Tipped bonds should be towel dried to avoid breakage and shedding that blow dryers may cause.
  • Keratin Tipped bonds may be weakened when exposed to constant damp environments such as steam rooms and saunas.

Wefted hair extensions

Some shedding is normal. However, sealing your wefts is recommended as the best way to minimize hair shedding. We recommend a sealant like Fray Check to be applied directly on to the weft before applying the extensions.
