EXTENSIONS

If you are looking for an extension consultation, you are in the right place! Please follow the link below, and I will reach out to move on to the next steps. 

MORNING & NIGHT TIME ROUTINE

 Brush your hair in the morning, when needed during the day, and most importantly before going to bed. Always firmly hold the wefts at the scalp with one hand, to prevent too much tension and unnecessary pulling. Always brush your hair in sections. Start Brushing from the ends of the hair and work yourself up to the scalp area.

Use Hair oil on mids/ends to add shine and moisture to the extensions twice daily. Brands I recommend: Lanza healing oil, Redken Diamond oil, Chi Argan Oil, Isles formula serum.

Bedtime: When going to bed, long hair extensions should be braided into one or two big loose braids. The purpose is to prevent tangling, damage to the attachment, and traction of your own hair where the extensions are attached. A tip that is very healthy for both hair extensions and your own hair is to use a pillowcase made of silk or satin. It is less damaging and helps retain moisture in your hair much more than materials like cotton

WASHING & STYLING INSTRUCTIONS

Wash 2-3 times a week. Excessive use of styling products and high heat should be avoided. These are elements that will shorten the lifespan of your hair extensions, and are not good for your own natural hair either. Always use heat tools on a medium-low to low setting. 

When drying your hair with a blow dryer, setting should be on medium to low heat, avoid any damage by being careful and stay away from the attachments of your hair extensions. First, comb your hair thoroughly with a loop or bristle brush, always starting from the bottom. Lift hair carefully and blow dry from a top-down direction.

SWIMMING/LAKE/BEACH TRIPS

For water events you will want to have a clarifying shampoo. The purpose for this will get all the chlorine and chemicals out of the extensions, preventing it from drying out. Follow up the clarifying shampoo with hydrating shampoo & conditioner.  Any water related events put deep conditioner or oil on the ends as a coating to keep them hydrated while in water. After water activities I would immediately shower, and use styling products as needed. I would always wear braids, or secure pony tails while in water to prevent unnecessary tangling.

 

CAUTION: Some sunscreens, and tanning lotions can stain blonde extensions making them appear brassy.
