The Dos and Donts

Pre-Shampoo

  • Before washing the hair, spray mixture of conditioner and water onto the hair and carefully comb the hair starting from the bottom and working your way up, using a wide tooth comb.  This will remove any possible tangles before washing.

1.

Shampoo

  • You must gradually wet the hair down and comb it gently before you completely wash the hair.  If the hair is very dry and a lot of water is added at once, hair will swell up like a sponge and tangle! Therefore, it is important to gradually wet the hair and comb it.

  • Wet hair completely with warm water. Make sure you lift your hair at the roots, especially in the back, so the water can soak your scalp, where oil and dirt collect.  

  • Do not apply shampoo directly to the top of your head, but a diluted amount in your hands.  Rub a dime to a quarter-size dab of shampoo in your palms; add a splash of water, and and then apply to the crown of your head, then move down to your neck, gently washing in one downward motion.  

  • Be sure to wash the hair in one downward direction. NEVER massage hair into a pile on top of your head; this will tangle the hair.  Gently lift the tracks up and massage your scalp and your own hair. Rinse hair thoroughly to prevent buildup. 

  • Use sulphate and alcohol free shampoos. Use organic shampoo.  (Alcohol can be drying) 

  • Rinse the hair completely with water and towel dry. It is best to air dry the hair but you can also blow-dry with low to medium heat.  Although it is important to apply leave-in conditioners to keep the hair from dryness, it is important to keep the hair clean by washing the hair about twice a week so that it will not create a build up.

Maintenance

  • We suggest that you wash the hair at least once a week with warm water. Please wash the hair immediately after swimming, spa, exercise, and etc. When chlorine, salt, dirt or sweat accumulate, hair can tangle and become unmanageable. Make sure you brush the hair daily and apply some leave-in conditioners so that the hair is soft and moist. Always use a wide tooth comb to comb wet hair.

  • A good leave-in hair treatment can keep the hair from drying. But remember not to put too much otherwise there will be a build up and make the hair feel too heavy.  Too much leave-in conditioners and other hair care products will create a buildup on the hair and will cause it to tangle faster. If the hair feels dry or heavy with buildup, wash it with good shampoo & conditioner.  

3.

Swimming

  • Before going for a swim, spray a leave-in conditioner on hair, and shampoo & condition extensions immediately afterward. When chlorine or salt water accumulates in the hair, it can have an adverse effect, making the hair mat, tangle, and become unmanageable.  To further protect your hair, if you want you can wear a swim cap made of latex.  Once your hair has been combed, braid the hair in two braids to ensure that all of the hair is protected and tucked neatly under the cap. Following your dip, be sure to wash your hair immediately to remove any damaging chemical that may have snuck under your cap.

4.

Sleeping

  • NEVER SLEEP ON WET HAIR. Make sure your hair is completely dry before you go to bed. It is also recommended to wrap your hair or gently tie it up with a silk scarp or bonnet to prevent tangling

Color

  • Color your Virgin hair the desired color before your extensions are applied.  Please allow a licensed professional to color your Virgin hair.
