Cleanse

• Always brush hair thoroughly with a Wet Brush BEFORE washing.
• Use a recommended sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to prolong your color and extensions. I recommend Olaplex - Shop Here
• Be sure all product is rinsed away.
• Use a leave in + finishing serum combo right after your shower and before you brush out your hair with the Wet Brush. I recommend Olaplex No. 6 & No. 7 - Shop Here
• When brushing wet hair, start from your ends and work your way up. Hold the hair in one hand (pinched in a ponytail) and brush down.

Style

• Rough dry your hair 80% of the way (no tugging at the extensions with a round brush or comb, just use your hands/fingers). This applies to blow-dry bars as well. Make sure to communicate to whoever is styling your hair to NOT round brush your hair from start to finish.
• Use a round brush and a small amount of tension to smooth your hair and the extension hair the last few minutes to finish the blow-dry.
• A Microfiber hair wrap/turban helps soak up water from your extensions. Shop Here
• When curling your extensions, run the hair through the curling iron lightly to smooth the hair once or twice before placing curls. This will give your extensions a more polished look, close the cuticle, and prolong the extension hair. Shop Curling Iron Here

Snooze


• Brush your hair thoroughly with Wet Brush before bed.
• Apply recommended oil or serum through your ends. I recommend Olaplex No. 6 & No. 7 - Shop Here
• Place in a loose ponytail or braid to ensure there is no tension on your scalp. Secure with a scrunchy.
• Sleep on a silk pillowcase.
• NEVER sleep with your hair wet. This will quickly damage your extensions beyond repair, resulting in the need to purchase new extensions.

Life

• You can live a normal active lifestyle with your Extensions, just treat the extensions & your scalp with some gentleness to keep them looking their best, the longest.
• After a few washes the extension hair will start to expand, and take on a more realistic hair texture. They will feel more like your own hair.
• AVOID SUNSCREEN touching your extensions. If you are wearing sunscreen, be sure to have your hair in a braid, bun, or ponytail. I recommend using Bare Republic Sunscreen. This product does not contain Avobenzone, which can turn your extensions a peachy color.
