Please note: No responsibility or liability will be accepted by Art of extensions for the damage to bonds and/or hair extensions if this guide is not followed, nor if the recommended hair care products are not used.
BEFORE – Do not apply any colour, oils or Keratin treatments at least 2 days prior.
AFTER – Do not wash your hair for 48-72 hours. Do not apply coconut, macadamia, Argan, Moroccan oils or Keratin treatments on, or near your scalp wearing hair extensions. These products can break down the bonds.
TAPE – A refit and move-up is recommended every 6 weeks of the bonds.
FREE CHECK-UP – Highly recommended after 1 month. Contact us to book.
SOME HAIR LOSS – A full head of extensions covers 2/3 of the head, so you can expect to see a small quantity of naturally released hairs trapped in the bonds.
BALMAIN & SHOWPONY HAIR CARE – Designed to improve the longevity of your hair extensions. Other products may damage bonds. Do not use products containing sulphur, such as anti-dandruff shampoos.
SHAMPOOING – Brush hair thoroughly, then soak in warm water. Do not shampoo with your head upside down. Always wash from the crown-down.
Distribute the shampoo at the roots, then gently massage in small circles over the scalp, cleansing both the natural hair and bonds. Rinse and repeat if needed.
CONDITIONING – Apply from to the mid-lengths through to the ends – do not apply directly to your scalp or bonds. Leave conditioning treatments on for 3-10 minutes. Rinse hair off thoroughly with warm water.
DRYING – Squeeze out water, wrap a towel around the head and gently pat the towel to remove moisture. Avoid rubbing scalp and ends. Dry hair naturally or blow-dry. You may use straighteners or curling tongs, but keep an adequate distance from the bonds, as heat can cause damage or melting.
BRUSH – Use a large soft brittle brush, as this ensures the hair does not catch on your extensions or natural hair. Gently brush starting at the ends, moving to mid-length and then the roots.
SLEEPING – Do not go to bed with damp hair. Gently tie dry hair back in a loose braid or twist as this will help prevent tangles or knots when asleep.
SWIMMING – Sea water and chlorine pools can cause bond and hair damage. We recommend you avoid putting your head under with hair extensions.
