- Prior to washing your unit or extensions, hand detangle any tangles. Start with the ends of the hair and work your way to the "root."
- Wash hair in lukewarm water every week 1-2 times depending on your activity level. You may need to wash your unit or extensions more often if you sweat a lot, swim, or do outdoor activities.
- Always shampoo in a downward motion raking fingers down the strands.
- To make sure hair is moisturized, deep condition the hair one time a week. Coat the hair in deep conditioner of your choice, tie hair inside of a shower cap / plastic bag, and let it sit for an hour. Rinse with cool / cold water and style as usual.
- Units or extensions that are colored should be washed with color friendly products. We recommend Olaplex Bond Maintenance shampoo and conditioner.
- Allow water to flow over lace on both sides to thoroughly rinse.
- Apply a light leave-in conditioner while the hair is still wet to keep hair moisturized.
- Avoid blow-drying hair too often. If blow drying or heat styling, blow dry on medium heat and use a heat protectant spray or a light serum to protect the hair from heat damage.
- When flat ironing hair, do not exceed 400°. Use caution with heat to prevent heat damage and split ends.
- If your wig is installed, do NOT go to bed with wet hair! Going to sleep with wet hair will cause matting, tangling, and will shorten the life of your hair or unit.
- Set edges with mousse and cover with a silk or satin scarf or edge wrap.
- If wearing straight hair: you can put a low loose ponytail (optional) and place it into a large satin bonnet.
- Take down the night-time style preserving the hair.
- Lightly mist curls or waves with a spray bottle with water to loosen the hair. Apply a light, moisturizing serum onto hands and scrunch into the hair.
- For straight styles, brush hair with a flat paddle brush and rub serum down strands of hair. Touch up any areas that may have gotten bent during sleep.
- Lightly comb baby hairs (if any) to remove harsh, crunchy look.
- When wearing extensions or a unit with any type of curl or wave, co-washing the hair is vital so that the hair doesn’t get dried out.
- BE GENTLE WITH CURLY OR WAVY HAIR! If you are not gentle and take your time with it, you can cause tangling, excessive shedding, breakage, and matting. Not being gentle with detangling can lead to shedding in the lace as well.
- Try to co-wash or wet curly hair every 2-3 days. Curly hair needs moisture!
- When washing curly hair, detangle the unit when it is coated in conditioner, from tip to root, with a flat paddle or Denman brush. This helps clump and define the curls while preventing breakage and unnecessary shedding.
- While the hair is wet, apply mousse or a lightweight curl cream and brush with a paddle brush. This will help define the curls and moisturize the hair.
- Try not to touch curly or wavy hair while it is drying, this will create frizz and disturb the curls.
COLOR TREATED HAIR CARE
- Please use a color friendly shampoo and conditioner. We recommend Olaplex Bond Maintenance shampoo and conditioner or Biotera Color Care shampoo and conditioner.
- When washing any colored hair or color treated hair, please use only lukewarm to cold water so bleeding of the color isn't induced.
- Moisturize color treated hair with a light serum each washing session.
- Deep condition the hair at least 1 time weekly. When you are finished with washing the unit or hair, try to let it air dry if possible.
- Please note it is natural for color to fade over time, whether permanent or not, due to washing, weather conditions, care, and other factors. You can have your color process redone when you’d like.
