Hair Extensions - Care and Washing Instructions
Step 1: Brush out each weft from ends to the top before you shower
Step 2: Be sure to wash from the top to the ends.
PRO TIP - Avoid washing your hair upside down or scrunching. Keeping all the hair in the direction the cuticle lays will help keep the longevity of your extensions
Step 3: Wash with a light shampoo and moisturizing conditioner. Rinse thoroughly (through the wefts). You now have twice as much hair, so rinse twice as much.
Step 4: Leave in conditioner and a serum of the ends of the extensions.
PRO TIP - Avoid brushing the extensions when wet. Allow to air dry or use a heat protectant to blow dry. When washing separate hair into two smaller pigtails. It will be easier to manage.
Gently brush 2-3 times daily
We recommend purchasing a hairbrush that's specifically designed for hair extensions. We offer them here at Studio 8.
