Hand-Tied Extension Maintenance

At Home Maintenance

Washing:

  • Brush out extensions with a Wetbrush before getting into shower. This helps prevent deep tangles and matting.
  • Use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to prolong your hair color and the extension color as well. Shampoo gently between the rows, no need for vigorous scrubbing.
  • Use a leave in + oil combo right after you shampoo and condition but before you brush out your hair with a WetBrush (again).
  • When brushing wet hair, start from your ends and work your way up to the scalp. Hold the hair in one hand (pinched in a ponytail) and brush down.

Styling:

  • Roughdry hair 80% of the way (meaning no tugging at the extensions with a round brush or comb, just use your hands/fingers). This applies to Dry Bars as well. Make sure to communicate to whoever is styling your hair to NOT round brush your hair from start to finish.
  • You can use a round brush and a small amount of tension to smooth your hair and the extension hair, the last few minutes of your blow dry.
  • If curling your extensions, run the extension hair through the curling iron 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. Use a heat protectant every time when applying direct heat.

Sleeping:

Brush the extension hair out, then place in a loose ponytail or braid.

 

Other:

  • After a few washes, the extension hair will expand, and take on a more realistic hair texture.
  • If you notice any excess tangling or hair shedding, please contact your stylist, as these are quick fixes when addressed right away.
  • You can live a normal active lifestyle with hand-tied extensions, just treat the extensions with some gentleness to keep them looking their best, the longest.
  • NEVER let sunscreen or suntan oil touch hair extension. They will turn peach.
  • Do not use protein products.
