Hair Extension Care

How do I care for my new hair extensions?

Hair Extensions are very easy to care for. We recommend Kerastase Bain Miroir Shampoo and Chroma Riche Mask to be applied from mid lengths to ends of hair for 5 mins before a  cool rinse. Use your hair extension bristle brush that is specially designed to run smoothly over the tubes and bonds, minimising unnecessary pulling of your extensions. Argan/Moroccan Oil is a great treatment also which leaves no residue.

DO NOT BRUSH WET HAIR/EXTENSIONS - EVER !

Wait until hair is dry before brushing, many clients find they have no fallouts if they stop brushing while wet! Hair is at its most fragile whilst its wet.

When sleeping loosely tie your hair back in a low ponytail/plait with "metal free" hair band. This will prevent any tangling while you sleep.

Buy a silk slip for your pillow:-

  • Recommended by Elite Hair Salons and Dermatologists / Cosmetic Clinics
  • Silk is filled with essential amino acids, naturally helping treated and damaged hair.
  • Silk "slips" – less friction means less pulls and fewer tangles which can extend the life of your hairstyle and extensions
  • Reduces ageing – silk contains cellular albumen which is thought to aid your skin and reduce the signs of ageing
  • Hypoallergenic – excellent for people with sensitive skin and allergies, This will also help prevent any tangling while you sleep.

Don't leave it too long between your maintenance visits. Moving the micro rings/tubes back up to your scalp will prevent any matting in your natural hair growth (very difficult to brush the new growth between the scalp and the micro ring) I would recommend between 5-8 weeks between visits, this will also prevent the extensions being visible in your natural hair.

Is there any particular products I need to use on my new extensions?

There are several products which I would recommend, they will help to keep your extensions super smooth and silky soft, I use them personally on my own extensions and highly recommend them. Ask at your consultation for products and prices.
