How To Guide | Taking Care Of Your Extensions At Home

Cleansing/Nourishing:

BRUSH OUT EXTENSIONS WITH A PADDLE BRUSH (NOT A WEST BRUSH) BEFORE GETTING INTO THE SHOWER. THIS WILL REMOVE ANY LOOSE HAIR THAT HAS SHED THROUGHOUT THE DAY/NIGHT AND WILL PREVENT TANGLING/MATTING.


USE ONLY SULFATE FREE SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER TO PROLONG YOUR HAIR COLOR AND EXTENSION COLOR. CLEANSE GENTLY IN BETWEEN ROWS, NO NEED FOR VIGOROUS RUBBING. CONDITION THE EXTENSIONS, AS WELL AS YOUR NATURAL HAIR AND SCALP!


RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS:

  • WE RECOMMEND USING YUMÉ HAIRCARE™, WHICH IS AN EXCLUSIVE EXTENSION HAIRCARE™ LINE DEDICATED FOR EXTENSION GUESTS. YUMÉ HAIRCARE™ IS FORMULATED WITH VITAL NUTRIENTS, VITAMINS, AMINO ACIDS, AND BOTANICAL EXTRACTS TO MAINTAIN OVERALL HEALTH, STRENGTH, AND MOISTURE FOR OPTIMAL EXTENSION WEARABILITY.

Brushing:

WHEN BRUSHING WET HAIR, ALWAYS HOLD THE WEFT AGAINST YOUR HEAD IN ONE HAND AND START TO BRUSH FROM YOUR ENDS WORKING YOUR WAY TO THE SCALP. THIS WILL ALLOW SUPPORT ON THE BEADED ROW AND PROTECT THE POINTS OF CONTACT ON YOUR SCALP. MAKE SURE TO COMB IN BETWEEN THE ROWS SAFELY AND UP TO THE TOP OF THE ROW TO PREVENT MATTING/TANGLING.


RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS:

Styling:

ROUGH DRY YOUR HAIR ABOUT 90% OF THE WAY. THIS MEANS NO TUGGING AT THE EXTENSIONS WITH A ROUND BRUSH OR COMB, JUST USE YOUR FINGERS/HANDS. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO BLOW DRY BARS TOO, YOU MUST COMMUNICATE THIS WITH THEM AS WELL. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WHOEVER STYLES YOUR HAIR UNDERSTANDS THEY ARE NOT TO USE A ROUND BRUSH (CERAMIC BRUSHES ONLY, DO NOT USE BOAR BRISTLE BRUSHES) ON WET HAIR, ONLY USE AT THE VERY END TO SMOOTH OUT THE HAIR THAT HAS BEEN ROUGH DRIED OR THE LAST FEW MINUTES OF DRYING. I RECOMMEND THIS BRUSH FROM AMAZON: CERAMIC LARGE ROUND BRUSH. WHEN CURLING YOUR EXTENSIONS, RUN THE EXTENSION HAIR THROUGH THE CURLING IRON TO SMOOTH THE HAIR ONCE OR TWICE BEFORE PLACING THE CURLS. THIS WILL GIVE YOUR EXTENSIONS A MORE POLISHED LOOK, CLOSE THE CUTICLE, AND PROLONG THE EXTENSION HAIR.


RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS:

Sleeping:

BRUSH THE EXTENSION HAIR OUT WITH A PADDLE BRUSH AND THEN PLACE IN A LOOSE ROPE BRAID FOR SOFT WAVES OR IN A HIGH PONYTAIL/WRAPPED BUN TO KEEP YOUR HAIR TANGLE FREE. A SILK PILLOWCASE WILL ALLOW FOR THE LEAST POSSIBILITY OF TANGLING.

RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS:

  • ANY SILK PILLOWCASE WILL DO!

Important Facts:

  • AFTER A FEW WASHES, THE EXTENSION HAIR WILL EXPAND AND TAKE ON A MORE REALISTIC HAIR TEXTURE.

  • IF YOU NOTICE ANY EXCESS TANGLING OR HAIR SHREDDING, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR STYLIST IMMEDIATELY AS THESE ARE QUICK FIXES WHEN ADDRESSED THE RIGHT WAY!

  • YOU CAN CAREFULLY PUT YOUR HAIR IN A HIGH PONYTAIL, BUN, OR LOW PONYTAIL, BUT BE CAREFUL NOT TO PULL ON BEADS OR COMB IN BETWEEN THE TOP OF THE BEADED ROW AND YOUR SCALP.

  • USE A NON-SYNTHETIC OIL ON YOUR EXTENSIONS DAILY, AS THEY DO NOT GET ANY NUTRIENTS FROM YOUR SCALP. IT IS BEST TO PUT OIL IN WHILE THE EXTENSIONS ARE DRY AND BRUSH IT THROUGH WITH A WET BRUSH/PADDLE BRUSH, BEFORE BED OR IN THE MORNING. WE RECOMMEND YUMÉ HAIRCARE™ OIL SERUM OR USING YUMÉ HAIRCARE™ DRY NOURISH TO KEEP ENDS OF HAIR SUPER SOFT, MOISTURIZED, AND SHINY.
