Hand Tied Extension Care

Washing

Wash your extensions carefully. Shampoo at scalp only. When you rinse it will clean the rest of your hair. Condition mid-length to ends including your natural hair. I highly recommend using low sulfate or sulfate free products. My favorite for extensions is Olaplex. I also suggest only washing up to three times a week at most.

Sun Care

Please avoid getting self tanners or most sunscreens on the extensions as it can alter the color. Always spray a leave in conditioner in the hair before getting in the pool or swimming in the ocean. Wear your hair in a secured braid or ponytail when swimming or in the wind.

Brushing

Brush your hair extensions at least twice a day. I recommend sectioning off your hair and starting underneath and working your way to the crown, brushing each row individually. Keep a firm grip on the base when brushing. After brushing apply a hair serum or oil. I love the Olaplex Bonding Oil.

Styling

Always use a heat protectant when applying heat to the hair. When blowdrying do not pull or tug hard on the extensions. Try to get them mostly dry before finishing smoothing with a brush.

NEVER go to sleep with wet hair, this can cause tangling and in rare cases fungus or mold.
