Helpful Tips & Reminders:
Heat is your hair biggest enemy. The more you use on it, the shorter the life span of your hair. Use heat in moderation. Do not use high temperatures. High temperatures can damage the hair, including permanently altering the hair texture. Use styling products that are alcohol free.
Sleep: Put your hair "up" at night. Plait or pin curl your hair before going to sleep. This is important in preventing tangles. Never sleep with loose wet hair, for it may tangle while you sleep.
Co-Wash: Substitute conditioner for shampoo Wash your hair in a downward motion, working conditioner from the top down in one motion. Rinse well and then style. This is great for curly styles.
Deep Condition: To keep you hair in tip top shape, use a deep conditioner or hot oil treatment in your hair twice a month. More or less, depending on the hair's need. This is very important if you have chemically treated the hair or use irons.
Styling: Always keep your extension tangle free. Brush or comb gently and avoid any excess tension. Always comb or brush hair from the bottom up, small sections at a time. The more careful you treat your extensions the longer they will last. Support your attachment when brushing or combing your hair.
When swimming at the beach, lake, sauna, or pool the following precautions below are recommended:
Comb your hair and put it into braids before swimming or wading in any type of water. Never wear a swimming cap, the friction may cause tangling.
Dry hair soaks up more salt water and chlorine than does already-wet hair; which, means dry hair incurs more damage while swimming.
If you plan to get your hair wet, soak your hair with plain tap water before you take the plunge.
Rinse your hair with plain tap water as soon as you have finished your water play.
Follow a day at the beach or pool with a moisturizing shampooing and deep conditioning treatment..
