  • Avoid overwashing your hair – try washing once or twice a week.
  • Brush your hair before getting into the shower to avoid tangling or matting.
  • Use sulfate free shampoo to prolong longevity of extensions and hair color.
  • Thoroughly cleanse in between wefts as well as completely rinse any excess conditioner.
  • Use a detangler/heat protectant after washing & use a hair oil everyday to ensure nourishment.
  • When you’re done showering, squeeze your hair dry (don’t rub!) and hydrate your hair with a leave-in conditioner. We recommend putting your hair in a towel turban to help soak up any excess water.
  • When brushing, pinch your hair like a ponytail and brush from the bottom up.
  • It’s extremely important to brush through your hair multiple times a day to avoid matting and knots.
  • Brush each row individually, starting mid way and making your way to the top of the weft.

  • Rough dry your hair with your hands to get the majority of the water out. When your hair is about 85% dry, you can use a round brush to help smooth it out.
  • We highly recommend using heat protectant when styling your hair–place it on your hand first and run it through the ends of your hair to keep it hydrated and nourished, avoiding the root.
  • Avoid hair masks, high protein products, and Moroccan oils as these products will cause protein buildup on the scalp and change the color of the extensions, adding warmth to the hair (especially blondes).

  • Never go to sleep with wet hair! This will cause damage and matting.
  • Put your hair in a loose braid, scrunchie, or silk turban while you sleep to keep your extensions healthy.
  • Use a satin pillowcase to preserve the longevity of your extensions.

  • Yes you can get your extensions wet!
  • Only use mineral sunscreen as an ingredient in regular sunscreen can discolor your extensions resulting in a pinkish tone.
  • Wet your hair and apply a leave-in conditioner before getting into the pool or ocean. There are often minerals found in bodies of water that can react poorly with your extensions, causing dryness and discoloration. Be sure to rinse your hair immediately after swimming.
