+ Brush hair to remove any tangles and to prevent matting BEFORE showering.

+ Use only shampoo + conditioner that is recommended by your extension artist for optimal results.

+ Use a moisture masque twice a month.

+ Do not scrub vigorously. We suggest a double shampoo to fully clean the hair.

+ Apply conditioner evenly from mids to ends.. For even distribution and to seal down the cuticle.

+ Rinse well to avoid shampoo, conditioner build up.

brush & blow dry.

+ Using your extension brush, , start from the ends of your hair and work your way up.

+ Once you reach the top of the weft, stop brushing.

+ We suggest clipping everything up except your natural hair underneath your bottom row, and start your brushing with that.

  1. drop down your bottom row and brush that out.
  2. drop out your natural hair in between the two rows, and brush that out.
  3. drop out your top row and brush that out.
  4. drop out your natural that is on top to complete the brushing process.

+ Apply the recommended leave in detangler and heat protection.

+ Power dry your hair 80% of the way. No tugging at the extensions with a brush. Use only your hands and fingers.

+ For a faster blow dry, section out each row and power dry them separately.

+ You can use a round brush or a paddle brush and a small amount of tension to smooth your hair and the extensions, the last 20% of your blowdry.

+ Use your curling iron or flat iron to finish your look to your desire. Appropriate heat should be used, never super high heat, hotter isn’t always better.


+ Sleep with hair in a low ponytail or braid to avoid frictional damage while sleeping.

+ Sleep on a silk pillowcase.

+ Never go to bed with wet hair.
