Here are some tips that apply to almost all hair extensions.
 

  • No swimming. Chlorine in pools, or grit and sand in sea water can dry out your hair extensions. This can lead to tangling and shedding. If you do find yourself in this situation, wash your hair immediately by following the instructions below for your specific texture. Brush out the hair with a Denman brush or a bristle brush. Make sure to use moisturizing oils such as Argan Oil, and/or leave-in conditioners to keep the hair healthy and tangle free.
  • Avoid using any hair care products that contain sulfate. Sulfate agents tend to dry out your hair extensions which will cause the hair to tangle.
  • If your hair does start to tangle, using a Denman brush or bristle brush to gently brush out the hair from the ends to the top. DO NOT brush or pull on the hair with excessive force, as this will cause the hair to shed.
  • Use your hands first to detangle curly or coily hair textures. A Denman brush or bristle brush could also work. Be sure not to brush with excess force which could cause shedding.
  • Wash your virgin hair extensions a minimum of once a week. Get it professionally washed by your stylist at least once every two weeks. This step is important for the health and longevity of your virgin hair extensions.
  • All hair types tangle to a certain degree, so it’s important to apply moisturizing oils or leave-in conditioners. Use products specific for hair extensions as these products typically don’t include ingredients such as sulfate or alcohol that cause the hair to dull and dry out.
  • Before going to bed it’s important to wrap the hair up. We highly recommend using silk wraps. This is especially important if you have long and/or curly textured hair extensions. We also reccommend sleeping with a satin pillow case.
  • Be sure to brush your hair daily.
  • For those that live in colder areas of the country, be mindful when weaing scarves or high neck outerwear which may cause the hair to tangle at the nape of the neck. We reccomend silk scarves to lessen the chance of your hair tangling. The same applies to one’s own natural hair.
  • Be cautiaus of spending prlonged periods in the sun as this can dull and dry out the hair.

    Co-Washing is short for conditioner-only washing. It means skipping shampoo and relying solely on the conditioner. The result of Co-Washing is something between squeaky-clean and second-day hair; that is smoother, softer and easier to manage. If you plan to color or bleach your hair, it’s good to Co-Wash it before doing so as chemical treatments to the hair can dry the hair out. Coloring of the hair requires more maintenance to keep it moisturized to prevent tangling which will lead to shedding.

    Co-Washing is especially useful if you have dull, dry, curly and/or wavy hair. We reccommend using specific conditioners, typically called cleansing conditioners, which are designed for Co-Washing. If you’re going to make an investment in hair extensions, make sure to take good care of them. Co-Washing isn’t typically used on straight hair. Use cleansing conditioner with a pH of 5.5 (no higher than pH of 7). To prevent static and frizziness in the hair extension.

    Before washing your hair extensions, be sure to brush out the hair thoroughly. Wet the hair from the ends to the top. Then work in any cleansing products in the same way, from ends to top.

To maintain your AVERA straight hair extensions:
 

Washing

  • Brush out the hair extensions and tangled spots BEFORE washing.
  • Dilute the shampoo with warm water. Use shampoo designed specifically for hair extensions.
  • Shampoo mixture should be gradually sponged into your hair extensions from the ends to the top. Applying too much water at one time could cause the hair extensions to swell and tangle.
  • Rinse the hair with warm water thoroughly and gently. Always rinse with the water flowing in the same direction as the hair naturally falls.
