HAIR CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Brushing:
Brush your hair gently, starting at the ends and working your way up to the root. Use a boar or nylon bristle brush that works gently over extensions. Avoid excessive pulling or aggressive brushing to maintain extension quality.

Washing:
Before washing hair extensions, brush thoroughly to remove any teasing or tangles. Gently hand wash hair extensions with a sulfate free, color safe shampoo & conditioner in lukewarm water. Shampoo and rinse thoroughly with clean water. Avoid applying conditioner to the bond (Tape-Ins & Keratin Fusion) as it can loosen the application. For Hand-Tied, Beaded Wefts, & I-Tips, be gentle with scalp conditioning as the application site is still not your natural hair. Rinse with cold water to seal moisture into your cuticle. Use a deep conditioner once every 2 weeks to maintain quality.

Drying:
Gently dry the base of extensions first with a hair towel, then move to ends making sure it’s 80% dry before you use your detangling brush (Sheila stotts or Bombshell). Start at your ends when brushing. Apply a leave in conditioner product or serum (isles formula or virtue labs). Air dry hair is not suggested, use a hair dryer to ensure a smooth finish. Do not exceed medium heat setting on dryer. Use a concentrator on hairdryer to avoid tangling/matting of the hair.

Styling:
Apply a leave-in conditioner to shield hair from heat damage. Do not exceed medium heat setting. The hair extensions can be styled using wire brushes or boar bristle brushes. To restyle, a blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron may be used.
Use a hair oil consistently and as often as individually needed. Our scalp only produces enough natural oils for our natural hair, so you will need to supplement with a hair serum to allow continued moisture for your extensions. Always use a detangler + oil on the extensions after you shower and before you brush out your hair.

Coloring & Toning: We cannot guarantee the quality of our extensions after any dye, toner, bleach, perm, keratin, or straightening treatment is performed. If you do wish to use such products, always try a test strip before proceeding to make sure you are satisfied with the results. The use of chemical may damage the extensions. Always see a professional for any services you wish to perform on your extensions.

Sleeping:
Sleep with hair into a low ponytail or braid to ensure hair doesn’t tangle when sleeping. Never go to bed with your hair wet. Sleep on a silk pillowcase.

Swimming/Fitness:
We do NOT recommend swimming with your extensions. The risks include: hair discoloration (blondes turning peach/orange), absorption of unknown elements in various bodies of water that can cause damage to hair & extensions, tangling & matting, and excessive dryness. If you do choose to swim with your hair extensions, please know that you are doing so at your own risk. If choosing to swim, take the time to prep your hair by rinsing with water to reduce the absorption of chlorine and salt. Dry hair acts like a sponge, so taking a dip without the extra moisture will cause you to absorb an excess of the bad stuff that can damage your hair and extensions. Keep hair gently pulled back in a secure braid to avoid matting. Avoid soaking your hair too much when swimming, as it can loosen the integrity of the bonds.Immediately after swimming, rinse through your hair with water to limit further damage. Wash with a professional-grade sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to remove all impurities and add back in that dose of moisture.

Installation:
Installation of hair extensions must be performed by a Licensed & Certified Hair Extension Specialist or Bombshell Certified Hair Extension Specialist. Your natural hair can be severely damaged if hair extensions are not installed properly. Do not exceed the recommended time-frames for maintenancing your extensions. If you extend the maintenance period and do not use proper care + proper products in your daily lifestyle, we cannot guarantee the quality of the hair extensions or your natural hair.

Customer Responsibility:
It is the buyer’s responsibility to inspect the hair and its’ quality prior to removing it from the original packaging. If there are any quality concerns, please return the hair in its’ original condition so we can properly refund or exchange the product. Once hair is removed from the original packaging, the hair cannot be replaced for any reason.

Remember:
Extensions are not your natural hair, special care and attention needs to be taken when caring for your hair extensions.Please see our website for the most up to date product recommendations for washing, drying, styling, and general maintenance.

VACATION HAIR:

Sunscreen:
Sunscreen WILL discolor your extensions. Do everything you possibly can to avoid your hair coming in contact with sunscreen. Putting sunscreen on your body and shoulders with your hair out of the way is NOT enough to keep sunscreen off of your extensions, as your hair may fall against your shoulder and even a simple rubbing can attach to the hair and cause it to turn colors. Spray sunscreen is highly discouraged when trying to avoid sunscreen product toughing your extensions.Sunscreen will cause your extensions to turn an orange/peach color and there is nothing that can be done to get them back to their original color. You will need to replace your extensions if your hair becomes discolored, so please, take great care in using sunscreen.

Swimming in the Pool or Ocean:
We do NOT recommend swimming with your extensions. The risks include: hair discoloration (blondes turning peach/orange), absorption of unknown elements in various bodies of water that can cause damage to hair & extensions, tangling & matting, and excessive dryness. If you do choose to swim with your hair extensions, please know that you are entering at your own risk.If choosing to swim, take the time to prep your hair by rinsing with water to reduce the absorption of chlorine and salt. Dry hair acts like a sponge, so taking a dip without the extra moisture will cause you to absorb an excess of the bad stuff that can damage your hair and extensions. Keep hair gently pulled back in a secure braid to avoid matting. Avoid soaking your hair too much when swimming, as it can loosen the integrity of the bonds.Immediately after swimming, rinse through your hair with water to limit further damage.

UV Rays:
Keep your hair pulled back under a hat to protect your haircolor, excess dryness, etc.
