How to care for your extensions at home

  1. Brush with care: Brush 2-3 times a day using your Extension Brush only (do NOT use wet brushes, combs). Brush by holding the weft/attached area with one hand, and start brushing the ends first. Work from the ends up to the weft area, being careful NOT to catch the brush on the hand-tied weft. Section hair and repeat for each row of extension
    ​​​​

  2. Wash with care: Always brush before washing.  Use a professional SULFATE-FREE shampoo and conditioner.  We recommend Oribe Gold Lust. Be sure to wash and condition gently by using the palms of your hands to run shampoo/conditioner in a downward motion through the ends. AVOID washing your hair upside down or scrunching/ piling on top of your head.
     

  3. Blowdrying & Styling: Choose hydrating or moisture-replenishing professional products to keep your extensions moisturized. (ex: leave-in conditioner, oils, heat protectant) Apply conditioner and products carefully (avoiding the weft/attachment area). Blow-dry in a downward motion, to keep the hair smooth and tangle-free. Use your Extension Brush in wet or dry hair to de-tangle and/or blow-dry. DO NOT blow dry upside down or roughly.
     

  4. Bedtime Routine: Brush using your Extension brush (making sure each layer/ weft is brushed carefully). Secure your hair into a low, loose ponytail or braid hair before bed. Sleeping with a satin pillowcase is a great way to care for your extensions, and prevent breakage. NEVER go to bed with wet hair, this will cause tangling/matting and breakage.
