Care & Maintenance

Washing: Keep your hair clean. Hair tangles when dirt and sweat build up, wash your hair after exercise, swimming etc. Brush your hair and remove all tangles before washing it. Wash your hair going in a downward motion.
Styling: When brushing use a soft bristle brush, start at the ends of your hair and gently work your way up. Always brush in a downward motion. Do not brush harshly. Brush your hair 2 or 3 times a day. Heat is one of your hair’s biggest enemy, the more you use it, the sooner you will have to replace your hair extensions. Be careful with the use of blow dryers and curling irons. It is best to let your hair dry naturally & then style.
Exercise & Swimming: Chlorine and salt water can cause the hair to tangle and mat up. It is recommended to wear your hair up or in a ponytail when you swim or exercise. Rinse hair thoroughly after swimming to remove chemicals & salt water.
Sleeping: Never sleep on wet hair; make sure your hair is completely dry before you go to bed. It is also recommended to braid your hair loosely or gently tie it up to prevent tangling.
Hair care products: Use a good (leave-in) conditioner to keep your hair soft & manageable. Don’t over do it. Too much conditioner or any other hair care product can cause a build up and tangling. Avoid hair products that contain alcohol or ethanol. Alcohol makes hair dry. Ask about Hotheads Hair care Products.
Hair treatments: Don’t perm, color or any other chemical process to your own hair extensions. Let your stylist take care of that in the salon.
Shampoo hair in a gentle manner, following the direction of hair flow.
Condition hair from just below the tip of the extension bonds to the ends.
Use a wide tooth comb to detangle the hair starting at the tips working your way up to the scalp.
Dry hair 80% to 90% before using an extension brush to finish your blow dry style. Never dry in a “scrubbing” motion. Letting hair dry
naturally is always best.
When using hot appliances, keep away from the bonded tip of the extension.
Run fingers through hair daily making sure the bonds stay separated.
Never go to bed with wet hair Always make sure your hair is dry and tied back in a loose pony tail before going to sleep.
