Hair Extensions Maintenance

Please make sure all clients follow the below protocol to maintain the life of their extensions.

 

 

  • Gentle Detangling:
    • Use a wide-toothed comb or a special hair extension brush to detangle your hair extensions.
    • Start from the ends and work your way up gradually to prevent breakage.
    • When the hair is dry,  use a soft-bristle brush or loop brush to minimize the risk of tangling and breakage, ensuring that your hair extensions stay in optimal condition.

  • Wash with Care:
    • Use a sulfate-free and paraben-free shampoo to cleanse the hair extensions. Make sure it’s a moistorizing shampoo made for extensions. B3 Brazilian Bond Builder Trio is our recommended product line
    • Avoid washing them too frequently; 1-2 times a week is usually sufficient.
    • Gently wash in a downward motion to avoid tangling.

  • Condition Regularly:
    • Apply a moisturizing conditioner to keep the hair extensions soft and manageable.
    • Focus on the mid-lengths to the ends, avoiding the attachment points.

  • Keep the Ends Oiled:
    • Since the ends of hair extensions don't receive natural oils from the scalp, apply a small amount of lightweight hair oil to keep them moisturized.
    • K18 oil or Verb Ghost oil  are our recommendations

  • Avoid Heat Damage:
    • Limit the use of hot styling tools such as flat irons and curling irons.
    • If you must use heat, apply a heat protectant spray to prevent damage.

  • Protect During Sleep:
    • Tie your hair in a loose braid or ponytail before bedtime to minimize tangling.
    • Use a silk or satin pillowcase to reduce friction and prevent breakage.
    • Never sleep on wet hair, as it is more prone to damage.

  • Use Quality Products:
    • Choose hair care products specifically designed for extensions.
    • Avoid products with alcohol, as they can dry out and damage the hair.

  • Protect from Sun and Pool Water:
    • Wear a hat or use UV protection sprays when exposed to sunlight for extended periods.
    • Prior to swimming, apply a leave-in conditioner and tie hair up to protect from chlorine and saltwater.

  • Avoid Excessive Tension:
    • Be gentle when styling and tying your hair to prevent stress on the attachment points.
    • Avoid tight hairstyles that may pull on the extensions.

  • Regular Checkups:
    • Schedule regular visits to your stylist to ensure the extensions are in good condition.
    • The ends may need a regular trim with each move up, just like regular hair. 
    • Address any maintenance issues promptly to prevent  damage.
