While hair extensions are designed to enhance your hair and simplify your styling routine, it's important to recognise that they still require time and care. While they undoubtedly provide versatility and instant length or volume, they aren't necessarily a maintenance-free solution. When achieving a polished look it often involves some effort. Whether it's blending them seamlessly with your natural hair or maintaining a particular style, you may need to invest time in styling.

Extensions, like natural hair, benefit from regular maintenance. This includes brushing, detangling, and, in some cases, styling to ensure they look their best. Neglecting maintenance can lead to tangling, matting, or a less-than-desired appearance. For those new to extensions, there might be a learning curve in terms of styling techniques, care routines, and understanding the limitations of certain styles. Patience and a willingness to experiment may be required. while hair extensions are a fantastic tool for achieving the look you desire, they do require a degree of attention and care.


After your extensions are installed, you'll need to wait at least 48 hours to wash your hair. After 48 hours, you'll want to wash your hair no more than twice a week to retain moisture and increase your hold time. You'll also want to wash your hair immediately after exposure to salt or chlorine. The best option is to wear a swim cap to avoid exposure to these things while swimming. When washing, avoid the attachment point of your extension. Gently work the shampoo into your scalp while avoiding the tape or keratin tip. Then work the shampoo from the middle of your hair to the ends. When conditioning, skip the scalp and condition only below your tape pr keratin tips. Conditioner on the attachment points may cause slippage.


Avoid using heat to dry your extensions where possible. The hair in your extensions is no longer living, it cannot rejuvenate itself after heat exposure like your hair does. Because of this, using heat to dry your extensions will remove excess moisture and cause the hair to become dry and brittle much faster. Avoid squeezing or pulling your hair when wet. Use a towel to gently pat your hair from the bottom up. Work with your fingers to gently reduce tangles, then let your hair air dry. All hair extensions have a slight natural wave to them, they can be styled using heat tools but please use a heat protector spray.


Make sure your hair is completely dry before brushing your extensions. Your hair is weakest when wet. That means pulling a brush or comb through it does the most damage when it's wet. We suggest using a wide toothed comb instead of a brush. Hold your hair just under the tape or bond to ensure you're not pulling on the attachment point. Then, start brushing at the bottom and work your way up.


Heat styling is a common practice for shaping and styling hair extensions, but it's crucial to do so with care to maintain the health and longevity of the extensions.
When heat styling use a low to medium heat setting on your styling tools. High temperatures can cause damage to both natural hair and extensions. Always apply a heat protector spray or serum before using any heat styling tools. This helps create a protective barrier, minimizing heat damage and keeping the extensions smooth and healthy.


Hair extensions, especially those made from European hair with a natural wave pattern, can sometimes experience frizz due to various factors. our extensions come with a protective coating applied during the manufacturing process. This coating helps preserve the hair and maintain its condition during storage and transportation. However, during the first wash or exposure to moisture, this coating may break down, causing the hair to puff up and potentially become more prone to frizz.

The initial puffing up and increase in thickness could be a result of the natural texture of the hair becoming more prominent as the protective coating wears off. This can give the extensions a fuller appearance, but it may also contribute to frizz. Like natural hair, hair extensions can react to humidity and environmental conditions. High humidity levels can cause the hair to absorb moisture from the air, leading to frizz. This is more noticeable in extensions with a natural wave pattern. Applying anti-frizz products designed for use on hair extensions can be beneficial.

While washing is essential for maintaining cleanliness, avoiding excessive exposure to moisture, especially in the initial stages after getting the extensions this can help minimize frizz. Although it's advisable to minimize heat exposure when styling extensions, we recommend employing a straightener after washing and drying your hair. This step helps smooth the cuticle, ensuring that the extensions remain sleek for an extended period. Air-drying extensions may result in a frizzy texture. Therefore, we emphasize the use of a heat protector spray whenever heat tools are employed to maintain the integrity of the hair.


Just like your natural hair, hair extensions will shed. Shedding is very normal and nothing to be concerned about. Hair extensions can experience tension if there's excessive pulling or brushing. This tension can lead to excessive shedding. It's important to be gentle when handling your extensions to minimize unnecessary tension on the hair. Brushing and de tangling, is crucial to prevent tangling and matting, which can contribute to the extensions shedding.


Remember, your extensions can't rejuvenate themselves like your hair so you'll need to protect them. When heat styling always use a heat protective spray. When exercising, wear a high ponytail to protect the hair from sweat and oils. When sleeping, wear a low, loose braid or ponytail to prevent excess movement and friction. Silk pillowcases are recommended to keep your hair in beautiful condition whilst you sleep. Silk scrunchies are also AMAZING!

No extensions can stay in forever. As your hair grows, the extension stays in the same place on the hair strands and moves further from your scalp. By the time your extensions have been in for six weeks, the tape starts to break down, making it harder to remove.

It will most likely end up being much more expensive because of the extra time and product it will take to remove the extensions. Visit your stylist every six weeks to get your tape/weft extensions moved up or removed.

Using sunscreen near hair extensions can negatively affect both the extensions and the natural hair. Sunscreen products often contain ingredients such as oils, silicones, and other chemicals that can cause buildup and residue on the hair. This buildup can weigh down the hair extensions, making them appear greasy or dull.
Additionally, some sunscreen ingredients may interact with the adhesive used to attach keratin bond extensions, causing them to weaken or break down prematurely. This can result in the extensions slipping or falling out before their intended lifespan.
Furthermore, prolonged exposure to sunscreen can cause discolouration or fading of both the extensions and natural hair, particularly if the sunscreen contains ingredients that react with hair dyes or pigments. In the case of blonde hair, certain sunscreen ingredients may even cause the extensions to turn peachy pink, altering their intended colour and potentially causing an undesirable hue.
 If sunscreen does come into contact with the extensions, gently rinse them with water as soon as possible to remove any residue.
