CARE & MAINTENANCE

Bundles

 

Co-Wash: Begin by treating your hair extensions to a luxurious co-wash using a sulfate-free shampoo and a nourishing deep conditioner. Gently massage the products into your hair, ensuring that every strand is coated. This step not only removes impurities but also helps to retain the hair's natural moisture, leaving it feeling soft, silky, and rejuvenated.

 

Dry: After the wash, give your extensions the care they deserve by allowing them to air dry or using a low heat setting on your blow dryer. This gentle method safeguards the integrity of the hair, minimizing moisture loss and preventing any potential damage from excessive heat. Take your time during this step, ensuring that each strand dries thoroughly while maintaining its shine and vitality.

 

Detangle: To maintain the health and longevity of your hair, it's important to detangle it properly. Start by using a wide-tooth comb, beginning from the tips and slowly working your way upward. This approach prevents breakage and minimizes any potential damage, ensuring that your hair remains strong and resilient. Take your time with this step, gently working through any knots or tangles, leaving your hair smooth, manageable, and free from any unnecessary stress.

 

By following these detailed steps, you can ensure that your hair extensions receive the utmost care and attention, allowing them to stay beautiful, healthy, and vibrant longer.

Remember to Co-wash your extensions every two weeks, using part shampoo and part conditioner in lukewarm water to extend the life of your extensions.

 

Wigs

Wash: Begin by using a sulfate-free shampoo specifically designed for wigs to thoroughly cleanse your wig. This gentle formulation effectively removes impurities while preserving the wig's color and texture. After shampooing, follow up with a deep conditioner that is enriched with nourishing ingredients to provide deep hydration and restore the wig's natural luster. Massage the products into the hair, ensuring that every strand is coated, for a luxurious and rejuvenating experience. This step not only cleanses the wig but also helps to retain its moisture, leaving it feeling irresistibly soft, silky, and beautifully revived.

Air Dry: After the cleansing process, it is recommended to let your wig air dry naturally on a mannequin head. This allows the wig to maintain its structural integrity and ensures that it dries evenly from root to tip. By air drying, you can avoid exposing the wig to excessive heat that may cause damage or alter its shape. Embrace the gentle airflow as it delicately dries your wig, preserving its original style and giving it a natural bounce.

Untangle with Care: To detangle the strands of your wig, take your time and handle it with utmost care. Begin by using a wide-tooth comb, starting from the ends and gradually working your way up to the crown. This approach minimizes any potential stress on the hair fibers and prevents unnecessary breakage. Be mindful of the delicate lace, ensuring that you avoid tugging or pulling on it. By exercising caution and patience, you can maintain the longevity of your wig while keeping it looking effortlessly flawless.

Styling Your Bundles

For Straight, Body wave, and wavy textures.

  • Detangling Process: When detangling, it's important to handle with care. Start at the ends and work your way up towards the wefts, using a gentle touch to minimize shedding.

  • Lightweight leave-in: Elevate your styling routine by gently applying a small amount of lightweight oil or leave-in conditioner onto your palms. Let the warmth from your hands warm the oil so that it can be easily absorbed in the hair. Delicately distribute the oil throughout your hair before incorporating other desired hair products.

  • Heat Styling Tips:  Use caution when applying heat. Make sure to prioritize using a light heat protectant and never go beyond 350 degrees Fahrenheit on your hot tools. Take care of your hair!

 

For Curly and Kinky Textures

  • Wet Combing Technique: For those bundles of curlier hair textures, it is recommended to detangle while your hair is wet. Begin from the ends and work your way up toward the roots, using a gentle touch to minimize shedding.

  • Curl Enhancement: If your hair is feeling dry, you can give it a little spritz of water. Then, follow up with a curl custard, defining cream, or curl mousse to enhance those beautiful curls. Don't forget to scrunch your hair using your hands to bring out the definition of the curl pattern. Your hair will thank you!

  • Heat Styling Tips: We recommend avoiding heat on curly and kinky bundles, if necessary, use a heat protectant before touching up with hot tools. Stay below 350 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve your hair's health. Remember although it can be straightened, it effortlessly reverts to its natural curly texture when exposed to moisture

Daily care for your hair extensions is just as important as caring for your natural hair. It's essential to keep them clean, moisturized, and tangle-free to maintain their longevity and ensure they always look their best.

Here are some tips for a daily care routine:

  • At night, ensure your hair is protected. Choose between braiding or wrapping with a silk or satin scarf to guard against tangling.
