Here is a Quick Guide to Hair Extensions tips from Split Endz Salon in Broomall PA.
Hair Extensions Maintenance Tips:
- Prevention of tangles is the single most important aspect of keeping your hair extensions in great shape.
- Never Go To Bed with Wet Hair!
- If you do, tangles will occur and it may be difficult to untangle them once they have dried.
- Use only the hair products recommended by your hairstylist for your extensions.
- Wait 48 hours before shampooing your new hair extensions.
- You may rinse your hair or use a recommended leave-in spray conditioner.
Hair Extensions Washing & Styling Tips:
- Gentle is the most important word when washing and styling your hair extensions!
- You should not wash your hair with your head facing downwards. Always tilt your head back and work the shampoo from scalp to ends.
- When shampooing, DO NOT scrub your hair. Instead, massage your scalp and gently work the shampoo into the ends. Flood rinse hair thoroughly.
- Use a conditioner based on the hairstylist’s instructions. Brush hair gently from scalp to ends. When wet, use the special SO.CAP. USA loop brush designed for detangling hair extensions.
- When hair is dry, use a soft bristle brush.
- When styling, DO NOT use any oil based products, which may cause the extensions to slip out. If you do use an oil based product while home and an extension falls out, you will be charged to reapply the extension.
- Never dry with a scrubbing action. Wrap your head with a towel and press so it may absorb the excess water
- Avoid prolonged exposure to water containing high amounts of chlorine such as a pool or jacuzzi. If you do expose your SO.CAP. USA Hair Extensions to these chemicals, rinse thoroughly and use SO.CAP. USA Shampoo and Conditioner. Apply conditioner and let set for 3 to 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. ALWAYS avoid hot water.
- It is normal to lose a few extensions per month. If this does happen, DO NOT PANIC, Simply return to your extension hairstylist to have them replaced.
Remember: the abuse or misuse of styling tools such as combs, brushes, blow dryers, hot irons, hot rollers as well as over the counter hair products may result in damaging your hair extensions. Speak to your hair extensionist for more information about damaging styling tools and recommendations for safe alternatives.
