Hair Care Guide


Before washing, thoroughly brush hair to remove any tangles. Gently hand wash with sulfate-free and paraben-free shampoo and lukewarm water. Never rub the ends of the hair together while washing. Repeat as needed, then add conditioner and leave in for 5 minutes. Avoid getting conditioner on the bead of the extensions. Gently use a wet brush or wide tooth comb before rinsing.  Be sure to completely rinse away shampoo and conditioner.



Gently squeeze out the excess water and blot with a cotton towel. Spray with leave-in conditioner or detangling spray and use a large wide tooth comb or wet brush to detangle and straighten while extensions are damp.



Hand-tied extensions can be styled using a wet brush or pliable bristle brush, boar's hair bristle brush, flat iron, or curling iron.  Use only sulfate-free and paraben-free products.  Use spray leave-in-conditioner, hair oil and heat protection on extensions to keep from tangling or drying out. 



For best results, we recommend the following:  Braid extensions before sleeping or bed, sleep on a silk pillow.


Brush regularly and thoroughly (multiple times/day).  While brushing, hold base of scalp where the extensions adhere to the natural hair with opposite hand.  Do wash your hair at least once a week to prevent the hair from tangling or matting….don’t wash it every day or it will dry out sooner.  The same goes for drying and styling.  The less you use hot tools and dry heat on your hair the better.  Do apply hair serum or oil morning and night.  Never sleep on wet hair, this will cause the extensions to tangle and matt.

Can I swim with my hair extensions?  

Yes. However, the minerals found in bodies of water can sometimes react poorly with extensions which may lead to the discoloration of your extensions.  We suggest you do the following to protect your hair:

Get your hair wet before entering an ocean, lake or pool. Spray with Leave-In conditioner or saturate with conditioning mask.

We suggest you also comb and braid your hair or put in a tight pony or bun before entering the water.

Rising immediately after leaving the water.

For an extra measure wash with a clarifying shampoo after water activities.  Just be mindful that clarifying shampoos have a drying effect on hair, so only do this in extreme situations.
