HAIR EXTENSION CARE

Thank you for allowing us to serve you. Below is some important information for your aftercare of your new hair extensions. It is recommended that you follow these directions provided to you by your certified stylist and use only products approved by your certified stylist in order to prevent damage to the new hair and your own hair.

      WASH AND STYLING

  • You have twice as much hair, so rinse twice as much. Leave your conditioner for at least 2-3 minutes. As your hair ages, leave the conditioner on for a longer time. Only apply conditioner on the ends never the root areas; conditioner on the roots may cause the extensions to slip.

  • Towel dry hair as much as possible; the hair will retain much more water than your natural hair. Air/Rough dry at least 60% before running a brush through your hair.

  • DO NOT wash or blow dry your hair upside down as this may cause tangling.

  • All chemical treatments of your own hair should be carried out by a certified stylist to guarantee the integrity of the hair.

  • Cutting hairdressers not familiar with extensions may damage it by cutting it too short or by using the incorrect technique. Please make sure to contact your Belt Salon stylist when looking for a trim.

   

      SLEEPING

  • It is recommended to sleep on a smooth silky surface that is non-abrasive and will assist in taking care of your extensions while sleeping.

  • Do not go to bed with wet hair.

  • Loosely braid or put your hair into a ponytail when sleeping.

     MAINTENANCE

  • It is necessary for you to return to your stylist every 6 to 8 weeks, or as advised by your stylist. As your hair grows, the cylinders attaching the extensions will move further away from your scalp along with your own hair. This can increase the traction on your own hair.

  • The reason is to have the attachment cylinders returned to or replaced to their original positions. Failure to do this may result in tangling and/or loss of some of your own hair and also a loss in the manufacturer’s guarantee on the hair.

  • This will also assist in determining suitable hair care regime at home and in the studio. Brushing with care and from the bottom of the hair must be taken when brushing the hair to avoid dragging (pulling) the cylinder attachments. Hold your hair close to the base and brush from the ends working your way up the shaft of the hair. We recommend Aveda paddle brush.

   

     SWIMMING

  • When swimming it is advisable to: braid or put your hair extensions into a ponytail as this will prevent knotting.

  • Rinse your hair in fresh water before going into pool or ocean as well as rinsing once you get out.
