Hair Care Essentials

Whether you opt for tape-ins, weft or micro-rings, it's important to know how to take care of your new hair!

To ensure they look and feel their best, here are some essential hair care tips to help you level up your hair care routine so they feel and look their best!


Beginning with the basics

It's essential that hair extensions are washed with the correct shampoo and conditioner that won't cause damage.

As professional stylists with over 10+ years in the industry, we have seen multiple hair care disasters.

From matted to thining extensions, we want to help you avoid the same mistakes.


Where to start?

The best place to start is by checking the back of your existing shampoo and conditioner bottles.

You want to keep an eye out for the following keywords:

- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
- Sodium Laureth Sulfate
- Alcohol denat
- Ethanol
- SD Alcohol 40

If you see any of these ingredients then it's time to switch the old for the new!


Styling products

After all the effort to ensure you've been using the right shampoo and conditioner, it's only right that you follow through with a heat protectant spray.

If you're styling your hair more than once a week it can easily become heat damaged.

It's often a common perception that damage is solely caused by hot tools such as straightners or curlers. However, damage can also occur from everyday blow drying.

Therefore, it's essential to use a heat protectant which will prevent damage and breakage from occuring.

We often hear clients say they've tried all methods of prevention yet still wake up with breakage and damage to their hair extensions.

Could it be that they have the wrong pillowcases?


Studies have shown that sleeping on a satin or silk pillowcase can help to prevent tangles and frizz, as well as reduce damage from rubbing and pulling.


Looking after your hair extensions

Taking care of your hair extensions is crucial to maintaining their quality and longevity.


The correct hair extension aftercare includes regular brushing, using the right products, avoiding heat damage, and avoiding harsh chemicals.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your hair extensions remain in great condition and continue to look beautiful for as long as possible.

Don't forget to also consult with your stylist or hair extension supplier for specific care guidelines that may vary based on the type of extensions you have.

With a little effort and attention to detail, you can enjoy gorgeous, healthy-looking hair extensions for months.
