Hair Maintenance Tips

  • Wash hair at least once a week with the sulfate free shampoo of your choice. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Apply sulfate free conditioner, comb through with a wide tooth comb or denim, starting with the ends working your way up you scalp. Let hair air dry
  • Use styling products minimally to avoid build up.
  • Using a spray bottle for wavy & curly hair for natural look.
  • For a “wet” look, we suggest a leave in conditioner & water.
  • Co-washing your extensions before installing is an essential step to not only gently cleanse the hair but to also add luster, shine and bounce back into the hair for a flawless install.
  • Regularly, shampooing can dry out the hair and strip it of its natural moisture. Be sure to use only sulfate free shampoo when cleansing and always follow it with a conditioner.
  • Make sure your hair is completely dry before you go to sleep and you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.
  • Before Going to Bed: Gently brush hair to remove all tangles. Braid your hair into a couple of big braids, wrap your hair, or tie your hair into a ponytail or bun. Sleeping in a satin scarf/bonnet is also beneficial.
  • Always use a head protectant when flat ironing the hair to prevent heat damage.
  • Avoid using heavy oils and styling products to avoid buildup.

 

Weft Tips

  • Do NOT cut your wefts. If so, use a weft sealer on each cut end.
  • Sew around your wefts. Puncturing through the wefts will cause the stitch along the track to loosen and immediately prompt shedding.
  • Seal wefts before installing your hair. Apply a weft sealant of your choice along the top of your wefted bundles. Applying sealant on one side should suffice, as most sealers seep through onto the other side. Allow sealant to completely dry before installing.Related image

Lace Base Products (Closures and Frontals)

  • Do NOT place any products directly on the closure/frontal.
  • Be very careful and gentle when handling lace base extensions. Vigorously brushing, combing and plucking with tweezers can cause punctures within the lace.
  • Avoid bleaching the knots of your lace, chemicals can cause the knots & lace to weaken and may promote shedding. Use a concealer powder in lieu of bleach.
  • Detangle by using a wide-toothed comb or detangling brush. Gently start from the ends and work your way up towards the lace. Run closure under warm water and use sulfate free shampoo. Work shampoo throughout the hair in a downward motion from the lace to the ends. Do not scrub the lace, it can cause it to tear or shed. Next gently comb from bottom to top and allow to air dry.
  • Bleaching, plucking, constant restyling all mess with the integrity of the frontal and is going to pull at the knots. Frontal/closures are very delicate and have to be treated as such.
  • Always place one hand on the closure/frontal while combing with the opposite hand to decrease tension to the piece.
