Recommended Maintenance Regime:
Gently rinse your hair extensions with luke warm water until they are saturated. Apply a generous amount of Shampoo to the hair, while holding the weft at the base, gently shampoo in a downward motion working shampoo from the top down. Rinse thoroughly. Condition hair in same manner and allow time to air dry.
Care After Install:
Distribute a generous amount of Shampoo through your entire scalp and massage your scalp with the tips of your fingers (not your fingernails). Gently shampoo in a downward motion working shampoo from the top down. This rubbing action and the resultant friction will loosen dirt, product residue and dandruff which can then be rinsed away. Thoroughly rinse your scalp afterwards, still massaging with your fingertips as you do so.
Condition / Hydrate:
Conditioning the hair is vital to its maintenance. After you have shampooed and thoroughly rinsed your hair apply a generous amount of Conditioner to the hair. Gently comb hair with a wide tooth comb, to assure even coverage. Rinse conditioner from your hair with warm water and gently towel or air dry.
Make sure to Shampoo your hair at least once a week. If you lead an active lifestyle, use excessive product or feel your hair had become dry substitute conditioner for shampoo during your weekly wash. Wash your hair in a downward motion, working conditioner from the top down in one motion.
Watch Out & Be Careful!
Since the hair you purchased is 100% Virgin using the wrong maintenance products on your hair extensions will result in dry, dull, tangled, damaged and unmanageable hair extensions.
Please remember that many shampoos and conditioners contain harsh, drying sulfates that are extremely damaging to hair (ammonium laureth sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, etc.). These common detergents found in shampoos make curly hair frizzy and uncooperative. Conditioner can be used sufficiently to clean the hair (see the next step). Also, more gentle shampoos that contain mild cleansers (i.e. cocamidopropyl betaine or coco betaine) can be used occasionally or more often for wavier hair types. Pick an appropriate product for the care of your new hair. Use a good quality shampoo, your stylist can advise you what product is best for your hair.
