Washing your Hair Extensions:
your extensions from top to bottom. Do
not wash your extensions upside down/to scrunch your hair on the top of your
head When washing take care to wash underneath every tape. Do not use products containing keratin/proteins & make sure it is sulphate free (Protein will make the extensions feel hard and dry and can cause your hair to break/damage).
If you feel that your extensions are becoming dry/hard contact your stylist or change your care products that you are using. It’s important to remember that Hair Extensions need more care and attention than your own hair, as the extensions do not receive proteins from your scalp. Use hair oil, this is the perfect way to protect the extensions and keep them hydrated.

colour you hair extensions
Never apply colour on the tape bonds
What to know when you want to color you hair extensions
The hair can be coloured but is not recommended as the hair has already been
processed with colour. If you/your client insist on colouring the extensions, we advise that you first test the colour on a single strand before applying colour to all your extensions.
Just keep in mind the colour to extensions always come out different than on natural hair. Do not try to bleach or lighten the hair extensions, if you do it will damage the hair. Never apply colour on the tape bonds.
