To keep your Hand Tied Halo Extensions looking their best, it’s essential to follow a few simple rules when shampooing and conditioning your hair. First and foremost, never use products containing sulfates, as they can damage both your natural hair and the extensions. Sulfates can break down the keratin in the hair, which can loosen the bond and damage your hair.
Before shampooing, be sure to brush or comb your hair extensions when they are dry. When washing your hair, use a shampoo that is heavily moisturizing and creamy in consistency, leaving your hair feeling conditioned rather than squeaky clean. If you’re unsure which product to use, ask your hairdresser for a recommendation.
To prevent over-washing and stripping your extensions, we recommend applying conditioner from mid-length to the ends of your hair prior to washing. Then, proceed to wash your hair with the conditioner from the mid-lengths to the ends. Shampoo your hair twice, using a massaging technique rather than an aggressive scrubbing technique. This will help to break down any oil and dirt, and the second shampoo will lather and help bring those oils and dirt to the surface to be rinsed off.
After shampooing, rinse your hair thoroughly and apply a generous amount of a heavily moisturizing conditioner that is creamy in consistency. Using a wide-tooth comb, start combing through the conditioner, beginning at the ends and working your way up to the scalp. While rinsing out the conditioner, leave a slight residue in your hair for further moisturizing.
Finally, towel dry your hair thoroughly to remove excess water, and then use a wide-tooth comb to comb your hair, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots. Following these simple steps will help to ensure that your Hand Tied Halo Extensions look their best and last as long as possible.
To prepare your hair for blow drying, make sure to comb each section of hair before starting. It’s important not to start blow drying your hair while it’s completely wet as this can damage both your natural hair and extensions. If you come across any extensions that are stuck together, simply separate them gently.
To achieve the best results, it’s vital to use professional hair products such as Oribe, R&Co, or Living Proof. These products can make a dramatic difference in the daily maintenance of your hair extensions, helping to keep them looking beautiful and healthy.
To keep your hair extensions looking their best, we recommend combing your hair at least twice daily using a hair extension brush. Additionally, we suggest checking your hair extensions every few days for matting or knots before going to bed.
While styling your hair extensions, it’s best to avoid using any electric styling tools such as straightening irons and curling tongs. If you feel you need to use hot tools, be sure to reduce the temperature to avoid damaging the hair extension and your natural hair. Remember, hot tools are the number one cause of hair damage, so use them with caution if you want your hair extensions to last and your natural hair to stay healthy.
When styling your hair extensions, use only light hold styling products that contain a low hold factor. Additionally, try to avoid frequently tying your extensions up in pulled-back ponytails, as this can create stress mainly around the front and bottom of the scalp.
To prevent tangles and matting, we recommend tying up your hair loosely using a cloth tie, such as a scrunchie, before going to bed. In the morning, remove the tie and use a hair extension brush to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up towards the scalp.
We strongly advise against immersing your head under water when wearing hair extensions, as they may become tangled or damaged. However, if you do decide to take a dip in the water, we recommend wearing a swimming cap to protect your extensions from the water. In the sauna or spa, it is best to keep your hair tied up to prevent it from getting tangled or damaged by the heat. After swimming or using the sauna or spa, it is important to wash and condition your extensions as soon as possible to remove any salt, chlorine, or sweat buildup that may have occurred.
Absolutely! Our hair extensions are made from human hair and can be styled, blow-dried, straightened or curled. However, we advise you to proceed with caution to ensure the longevity and quality of your hair extensions.
What are the guidelines for styling my hair extensions?
For Nano Extensions, do NOT apply direct heat to the nano tip bond. Although our high-quality Italian Keratin bonds are designed to withstand heat, extreme heat can cause the keratin to soften or melt.
For Weft Extensions, do NOT cut the weft! This will damage the structural integrity of the weft and cause it to unravel.
As a general rule, we advise against applying extreme heat to either the natural hair or to the Hair Extensions. Heat can dry out hair extensions, cause damage, and reduce their overall lifespan. Remember, the less heat you apply to your hair (whether natural or extensions), the better it is for the condition of your hair.
Hair extensions can generally be darkened, but it is preferable not to lighten them. While some salons offer hair extension lightening services, this can potentially damage the hair. Accurate color matching is crucial to achieving the desired look and ensuring optimal performance. We recommend completing a color matching consultation to ensure that you have the perfect shade of hair extensions for your needs.
Generally, hair extensions can last for 6-9 months. However, it is essential to maintain and care for them regularly. To keep your extensions in good condition, they should be serviced every 6-10 weeks, depending on how fast your natural hair grows.
