-Properly brush twice a day

-Hold the weft line with one hand while gently brushing just below working from the ends up

-DO NOT brush aggressively over the top of the weft

-Be sure to thoroughly brush each row and in between rows to avoid any matting.

-Brushing the very top of the wefts will quickly ruin the hand tied stitching.

Styling

-Using low or less heat & proper brushing will help the longevity of your extensions.

-Apply oil to your extensions prior to blowdrying and a few times throughout the day.

-Blowdry in a downward motion on medium heat focusing on getting the top of the wefts dry to avoild shedding and overall breakdown of the handtied wefts. The hair itself can be airdried.

-Keeping hair in a low loose ponytail or braid at night will help keep tangles at bay. Use of a silk pillowcase will also help. DO NOT go to bed with wet hair.

-Always use heat protection. Extension hair is real hair. Treat it like your own or... treat it better.

Activities

-Always prep hair with a mixture of water/conditioner and braid the hair tightly or put in a tight bun before enjoying any water activities. Rinse immediately afterwards.

-Beware of the sunscreen you use! Many contain an ingredient known as "Avobenzone". This creates a chemical reaction with the textile dyes when it comes in contact with extension hair, especially blondes! Opt for a mineral sunscreen.
