Hair Care Instructions:

Washing:

This process will remove the initial steam pattern (of non raw hair) and reveal the hair’s natural pattern. We recommend following these steps closely for normal maintenance of your hair and to preserve the life of your hair extensions.

Please note: minimal shedding of loose strands are normal

  1. Fill sink with warm water (DO NOT use hot water as this will dry out the hair).

  2. Squeeze a dime size amount of sulfate-free shampoo into the water or directly on the hair (sulfates will dry out the hair).

  3. Submerge hair in water until completely saturated.

  4. Squeeze excess water off of the hair.

  5. Repeat process of submerging and squeezing excess water until hair is completely washed.

  6. On the wet hair, apply a generous amount of conditioner to the length of the bundle paying special attention to the ends.

  7. Divide the bundle into 3-4 sections so the strands are evenly coated with conditioner.

  8. Run your fingers throughout each section, finger detangling as you would your natural hair.

  9. A wide tooth comb can also be used in place of fingers for a more thorough detangling.

  10. When using a wide tooth comb to detangle, be sure to hold the bundle by the base while combing from the ends first and then up to the root.

  11. After detangling as desired, rinse hair with cold water and wring out the excess.

  12. Hang the hair to drip dry.

Detangling:

Straight/Wavy: Using a wide tooth comb or paddle brush, Hold onto the base of the bundle and begin detangling from the ends and work your way up the weft.

Curly: Using a hair clip, divide the hair into sections for easy manageability. Beginning with your first section, spray the hair with water until damp, and apply a generous amount of conditioner. Using a wide tooth comb or paddle brush, Hold onto the base of the bundle and begin detangling from the ends and work your way up the weft. Clip the finish section and repeat on new section of hair

Tip: To achieve maximum curl definition, use a denman brush.  

Styling:

Straight: Gently brush out tangles using a paddle brush. Liberally apply heat protectant spray and brush it through. Flat iron the hair in small sections using the “comb and chase” method for the best results. Seal the hair with silicone based anti frizz serum for added shine.

Tip: Set your hair at night with flex rods or pin curl with bobby pins to avoid using heat daily.

Wavy/Curly: For curly and wavy textures, in a spray bottle mix 1 part conditioner to 3 parts water. Spray the mixture onto the hair, using a denman brush brush the hair and scrunch. Let hair air dry or use a diffuser to save time.

Night Routine:

To lessen tangling while you’re sleeping, splitting your hair into two parts and braiding each section is recommended. For curly and wavy textures, adding a small amount of styling cream and braiding the hair at night will give the hair a nice wave in the morning.

Tip: To further avoid tangles, sleep with a satin bonnet or scarf on to protect your hair.

Storage:

After uninstalling, wash each bundle making sure to remove any product build up. Condition and detangle the bundles. Let each bundle air dry preferably on a pant hanger. Once completely dried, roll each weft into a bundle and secure it with a seamless elastic hair tie. Store the hair in the provided pouch.
