Gorgeous hair needs good aftercare!
* Before washing you should de-tangle hair from ends to roots.
* We recommend using either Remi Cachet shampoo and conditioner or Pureology Strength. Make sure your shampoo is always free from any sulphates and any Benzo ingredients.
* Wash your hair in lukewarm water and in an upright position (never in the bath)
* Gently squeeze out excess water and pat dry with a towel.
* Apply a hair oil (avoiding the bond area) to lock in moisture and fight frizz whilst damp.
* Use a boar bristle brush or a tangle teaser to regularly detangle your hair everyday.
* Always fully dry your hair making sure it is dry at the root NEVER LEAVE YOUR HAIR TO DRY NATURALLY
* Tie your hair in a loose ponytail or plait when exercising and at bedtime to prevent matting.
* If you’ve recently have your extensions fitted or just had a refit appointment try not to wear them tied up high for the first couple of weeks as this can cause tension. Low or mid pony is fine
* Regularly separate your hair and bonds gently to avoid matting
* Below is a video by Remi Cachet explaining how you should wash your hair extensions
* Do not wash your hair more than 2 times a week (you can wash the top so your own hair but no the hair extensions themselves)
* When washing & drying your hair, do not massage or twist the hair.
* Do not roll or rub hair with a towel.
* Avoid using heated styling products near the bonds – blow dry the roots on a cool setting.
* Do not twist or play with the bonds as the seals may loosen.
* Because the hair is already processed, it is advisable not to colour, tint or perm. However, this can be done under professional supervision and at the stylists and clients own risk.
* limited heat usage on the hair to once a week if using heat use a heat defence spray such as GHD
* If swimming is a must, then the extension hair must be coated in a watered down conditioner and tied up securely to avoid chlorine contamination, sea water and tangling. Wash thoroughly afterwards and apply a generous amount of conditioner.
* Hair extensions can be affected by chlorinated water, hard water and a high mineral content, sin and products containing Avobenzone, such as sun creams, that comes into contact with the hair. Wearers should be informed of the risks by their extensionist and should any discolouration occur, products are available to rectify and restore the hair.
* Hair extensions are not advisable for use in chlorinated water or hotter climates than normally accustomed to.
* Do not use products that are not specifically made for extensions as they may damage the bond and hair.
* Never attempt to remove your extensions yourself, or have anyone other than the extensionist who fitted your hair to remove them
