WASHING YOUR EXTENSIONS
Human Hair Extensions over time will accumulate residue just like your own hair. This does not however mean that you need to wash the hair everyday. To keep the hair in optimal condition, it is best to wash the hair as little as possible. The rule of thumb is to wash the hair when you notice the hairs condition has significantly lost it's sheen, has become dirty from natural oils released from the scalp or excessive use of styling products such as hair spray.
FOR CURLY HAIR
Carefully rinse extensions with lukewarm water and wash with a moisturizing shampoo. Do not rub or twist the hair. Gently squeeze out the excess water and pat dry with towel. Allow hair to dry naturally until ‘bone dry’. Do not use the hair dryer to blow the hair and the extensions will return to their original state.
FOR STRAIGHT HAIR
Carefully rinse extensions with lukewarm water. Place a small amount of shampoo specifically formulated for chemically treated hair in the palm of your hand. The shampoo should be applied to the hair in a downward motion from the top of the extensions to the ends. Under no circumstance should you twist, rub or scrub the hair to prevent damaging the extensions. Gently lather shampoo until hair is visibly clean then rinse the hair thoroughly under lukewarm water until all shampoo has been completely removed. Be thorough in the rinsing process as improper rinsing may result in damage of the hair.
CONDITIONING YOUR EXTENSIONS

We would recommend you leave the conditioner on for up to 5 minutes then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Gently blot hair with towel to remove excess water.
After rinsing and towel blotting (drying) the hair, it is advisable to spray the hair with a leave-in conditioner before attempting to remove any possible tangles with a wide toothcomb. Starting at the ends of the hair, comb the hair carefully to remove any existing tangles. Move in a downward motion away from the clips towards the ends.
