Brushing - The use of a hair extension loop brush is very important when brushing out your extensions. A loop brush has no end point to the bristles like a standard brush or comb does. The loops will gently glide along the root so it will not puncture the weft, bond or base of a closure/wig. If you need additional deeper brushing or detangling with the use of a wide toothed comb- gather your hair as if you are holding it in a ponytail, comb starting at the ends and working your way up to the mid shaft of the hair until completely detangled, then use the loop brush to complete brush through at the weft or root area.
Sleeping - Never go to sleep with wet hair. Before sleeping completely brush your hair out with an extension loop brush, being sure to eliminate any tangles. Braid hair into a low braid or wrap hair using a scarf. The use of a silk pillowcase is not required, however it is always a benefit to both your human hair and your skin.
Swimming - Wearing extensions doesn’t mean you can't do the regular activities you love, it just means there are a few extra steps that need to be taken to keep your beautiful locks healthy. Regular swimming and long periods of time hair is exposed to chlorine or ocean water will require a few steps to be taken to prevent any damage to your hair. Dry hair will soak in any water that it touches or is completely submerged in, so creating a barrier for your hair is important before swimming. Prior to swimming rinse your hair with cool/lukewarm water and apply conditioner. This will act as a barrier to any chlorine, minerals or sea salts, which could penetrate into the hair and cause damage. If you are a frequent swimmer using a swim cap is highly recommended. After any swimming, it is important to shampoo and condition your hair so chlorine and minerals don’t sit on the hair for a long period of time.
Styling - It is highly recommended to use a leave-in conditioner after shampooing and conditioning your hair regardless of how you plan to style it (air dry or blow dry). If using heat on the hair it is very important to use a thermal protector prior to exposure of any hot tool. You will want to use a thermal protector or working spray that is low in alcohol content. Some products available on the market (although branded as thermal protecting) actually contain high levels of alcohol, which can cause a reverse effect when used frequently, by drying out the hair instead of protecting the hair.
