PROLONG THE LIFESPAN OF YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS
The lifespan of hair extensions, depends on the aftercare it receives. a Definitive lifespan can not be guaranteed on any type of hair extensions due to it being a natural consumable product. However Extensionaire Hair Extensions do come with a 60 Day manufacturer guarantee.
We don’t recommend any silver shampoos (other than our Diamond Silver Shampoo and Fanola Now Yellow) as other brands may damage the hair, affecting the lifespan of your hair extensions. We also don’t recommend any permanent colour on hair extensions; any colouring of extensions is done entirely at your own risk. Light blonde coloured hair extensions may have a shorter life span due to the colour treatments. Lighter shades will also require more care and less heat application to increase their lifespan.
Wash your hair extensions no more then twice a week with Extensionaire Haircare Series. Excess washing and styling may damage the cuticle and decrease the lifespan of your hair extensions.
Take care of your hair extensions as you would your own natural hair and remember that like your natural hair, your extensions can be easily damaged with excessive heat and over use of products.
Washing Hair Extensions
Before you wet your hair extensions, always brush from the ends and to roots/scalp. This is to ensure that there will be no knotting of the hair when you wash your hair.
Be sure to use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner as normal drugstore hair care products can dry out your hair extensions. Tape extensions should be washed no more than twice a week.
Wash your hair extensions in a downwards motion, allowing the water to flow from roots to the ends of your extensions.
Gently massage the scalp ensuring you reach underneath each extension bond/weft.
Your Conditioner needs to hydrate and add moisture to your hair extensions. Conditioner and any other moisturizing oils only need to be applied from the neck area down. We advise to deep condition your hair extensions every second week as this will prolong the life of your hair extensions.
DO NOT towel rub your hair extensions as this will cause friction damage. Gently press the towel against your hair. section your hair down the nape of your neck and massage two pumps of oil/leave-in conditioner into the hair.
Using a WET brush, gently brush your extensions from ends upwards. IMPORTANT! Hair/extensions can stretch up to 30% its length when wet. So take extra care when brushing wet hair extensions.
