How to Care For Remy Hair Extensions

How to Care For Remy Hair Extensions

1. Make sure you brush the hair daily. Start at the ends and work your way up to your scalp with an extenison brush. If your hair is wvy or curly, we recommend a wide tooth comb instead of a brush. 

 
2. 
A good leave in hair treatment can keep the hair from drying and maintain it soft and healthy. It is recommended to apply leave in conditioner after washing to keep the hair from drying and tangling.
You can make a leave-in conditioner at home by diluting conditioner (10%) with water (90%). Apply the mixture lightly onto your hair and brush the hair from the end to the top near the scalp.

Although it is important to apply leave-in conditioners, remember not to use too much otherwise it will create build up and make the hair feel dirty and too heavy.
 If the hair feels heavy with too much product, make sure to wash it with a moisturizing shampoo & conditioner. 
 

3. Before washing the hair, spray mixture of conditioner and water and brush the hair from bottom to the top. You must gradually wet the hair and brush it gently before you completely wash the hair. If the hair is very dry and a lot of water is added at once, there is a possibility that hair will swell up like a sponge and tangle! Therefore, it is important to gradually wet the hair and brush it.
 
4. After wetting the hair, add shampoo and conditioner and brush thoroughly. Be sure to wash and brush the hair in one direction. Rinse the hair completely with water and towel dry. It is best to air dry the hair but you can also ok to blow-dry.
 
5. Washing and conditioning the hair keeps it moisturized and damage free. It will prolong the life of your beautiful hair while providing it with the nutrients it needs to survive for as long as possible.
We suggest that you shampoo and condition the hair at least once a week with lukewarm water to maintain your beautiful hair. Please wash the hair immediately after swimming, going to a spa, exercising, etc.
Dirt and sweat accumulate and create tangles. Excessive use of leave-in conditioners and other hair products will create a build up on the hair and will cause it to tangle faster. If the hair feels dry or heavy with build up, wash it with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
(We recommend Joico–K PAK , Joico Moisture Recovery, Fredric Fekkai, or Goldwell Kerasilk Shampoo and Conditioner.)
 
6. You must not sleep with your hair down. Make sure the hair is completely dry before going to bed. NEVER SLEEP ON WET HAIR. It is best to braid the hair and tie it up with a satin scarf or bonnet. It is also important that you braid your hair when going to swim or exercise (please make sure to untangle the hair before making the braids).
 
 
7. When swimming, always wear a cap to prevent prolong exposure to chlorine or salt water which causes the hair to tangle. Always wash the hair right away with shampoo and conditioner after swimming in both types of water. When going to the spa, the hair should be brushed out completely and should be wrapped in a cold wet towel.
 
8. It is advisable NOT TO TINT, COLOR, PERM OR APPLY ANY EXTRA CHEMICAL TREATMENTS because the hair has already been chemically treated. Please be extra careful with blonde and other light colored hair. They are more chemically processed than dark hair. Therefore, they are more vulnerable to any additional chemical treatments and we cannot be held responsible for the outcome.
 
9. Special Instructions for Strand by Strand Extensions:
-Do not shampoo for the first two days after application.
-Always brush with a loop brush. Brush row by row, ends to roots.
-Keratin Tipped bonds should be towel dried to avoid breakage
- Keratin Tipped bonds (approximately 1” from the bond & scalp) should not come into contact with any heat (blow dryers, hot rollers, curling & straightening irons), heat will weaken the bond.
-Keratin Tipped bonds may be weakened when exposed to constant damp environments such as steam rooms and saunas.
 
How to wash wigs and lace units:

How to wash wigs and lace units:

Shampooing and conditioning the hair keeps it moisturized and damage free. It will prolong the life of your wig while providing it with the nutrients it needs to survive for as long as possible.
We suggest that you shampoo and condition your wig every two weeks at minimum. Please wash the hair immediately after swimming, going to a spa, exercising, etc.
Dirt and sweat accumulate and create tangles. Excessive use of leave-in conditioners and other hair products will create a build up on the hair and will cause it to tangle faster. If the hair feels dry or heavy with build up, wash it with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
 
1. If your unit is applied with attached to your head with adhesive, always remove the wig with lace front citrus remover carefully.
2. Once removed, make sure that all the residue tape and/or glue is removed from the wig. You may use the citrus remover or for more stubborn adhesive use 99% alcohol.
3. Now fill the sink with lukewarm water and add a moisturizing shampoo. (We recommend Joico–K PAK , Joico Moisture Recovery, Fredric Fekkai, or Goldwell Kerasilk Shampoo and Conditioner.) Then swirl the shampoo around with your hand.
4. Now put your wig in the sink and run your fingers through the hair from top to bottom to make sure the shampoo is evenly distributed without rubbing twisting the hair.
5.Then rinse the shampoo off with water and empty the sink of the shampoo water.
6. Now fill the sink with lukewarm water and add a moisturizing conditioner. (We recommend Joico–K PAK , Joico Moisture Recovery, Fredric Fekkai, or Goldwell Kerasilk Shampoo and Conditioner.) Then swirl the conditioner around with your hand.
7. Then return your wig to the sink and run your fingers through the hair from top to bottom to make sure the conditioner is evenly distributed without rubbing twisting the hair.
You may repeat the shampoo or conditioner process as needed.
8. Now empty the sink and refill it with clean lukewarm water and let the wig sit for 10 minutes.
9. Then take the wig and pat dry with a towel. Place the wig on a mannequin & put a detangling solution or a leave in conditioner on the wig. The hair should be soft & able to gently comb through the wig.
10. Once the hair is manageable, let the hair sit & air dry. If you are in a rush, you can blow dry the wig on low heat. Make sure to avoid heat coming into direct contact with the lace, the heat from the blow dryer should only touch the actual hair.
When possible allow 24 hour before reapplying the wig.

Additional care tips for Wigs & Hair Extensions:

Additional care tips for Wigs & Hair Extensions:

Detangling:
Make sure you comb the hair after each wash and everyday. When detangling the hair, please start from the ends and work up little by little to the root. Hold the base with the other hand to keep it from shedding or causing too much root tension. For curly hair, if the hair ever becomes tangled you should never try to untangle the hair while dry. You should only untangle the hair after it has been sprayed with a conditioner.
Avoid using shine products on the root area as it may cause premature shedding.
 
Brushing:
Brushing should be done carefully to avoid root tension. Do not attempt to brush through the attachment unless using a
very soft 100% boar Brush. Extreme tugging may result in the loss of your own hair.
 
Blow Drying:
Take care not to lift the lace front wig when round brushing and drying your hair. Brush gently toward face. Do not brush or tug abruptly when drying hair. Press firmly around perimeter after blow drying.
 
Sleeping:
Braid the hair when going to sleep, swimming or exercising. You MUST untangle the hair prior to braiding. NEVER sleep on wet hair, your hair must be completely dry before going to sleep as sleeping on wet lace wig WILL cause hair to be very matted.
 
Dry Ends:
To keep hair from becoming dry, you may apply a leave in conditioner or olive oil two to three times weekly prior to shampooing. Remember that the hair on wigs or extensions do not have the benefit of your own natural scalp oils, so oilve oil and leave in conditioners will help replace those necessary oils in the hair.
 
Chlorine and Salt Water:
Chlorine and salt water have been known to damage hair used in wigs and hair extensions. Chlorinated pools, Jacuzzis, saunas and ocean water can cause irreparable damage to the hair that I am purchasing and/or wearing and that my seller can not be held responsible if I decide to ignore such warnings. I have been advised not to expose my wig or hair extensions to chlorinated and/or salt waters and do at my own risk.
 
Shedding:
Some hair comes sheds easier than others. Curly and longer hair will commonly shed hair more rapidly than a short hair. Shedding of hair is considered very normal.
 
Slippage:
During the life of your lace front wig hairstyle, your lace front wig may slip. To help avoid this constantly apply firm pressure on the adhesive area, especially after showering. This will help the attachment stay
firmly attached to the scalp area. In the event of your lace front wig slipping or lifting, you can successfully re-attach using a small amount of adhesive, wait 4 minutes for it to cure, and then press firmly.
 
Matting:
Each morning, lean your head forward and use a soft brush and gently brush your hair starting at the ends of the hair and working your way up to the root area.

Chemical Treatments:
We do NOT recommend that you TINT, COLOR, PERM OR APPLY ANY EXTRA CHEMICAL TREATMENTS to the hair because in most cases it has already been chemically treated.

Also please be extra careful with blonde and other light colored hair. They are more chemically processed than dark hair. Therefore, we will not be responsible for the outcome.
 
All of the Following Can Cause Premature and Excessive Hair Loss:
 
Excessive Combing or Brushing:
This will ultimately break off hair and cause premature thinning or shedding.
 
Unattended Matting and Tangling:
Left uncorrected, excessive matting and tangling that is then removed forcefully will tighten the matted hair and tear out the hair.
 
Friction:
From pillows or overly aggressive shampooing will break off the hair and thin and tear out the hair.
 
Conditioners Remaining In the Root Area:
Probably the single largest factor creating major, ongoing, irreversible hair loss. Conditioners that are allowed to be absorbed onto the base and gather around the root system will ultimately prevent the root system from pivoting 360 degrees allowing for hair loss in your hair replacement. Conditioners must be rinsed out completely to avoid the breakage of the root system.
 
 
Clients with Extra Curly or Wavy Hair
For wavy or curly hair, we recommend you wet the hair every morning with a leave in conditioner. The hair is very beautiful, but requires daily maintenance. The hair should always have a level of solution in it, so that it can keep its curly texture and moist feel.

Hair Textures

Textures of hair vary from very straight to extremely curly or kinky. The exact names of curl patterns vary by brand but some examples of packaged textures include:
  • Silky Straight - Straight and smooth, East Asian like hair.
  • Yaki - Straight, usually mimicking the texture of relaxed Afro-Caribbean hair.
  • European - Straight European hair; less straight than Asian hair. May have a tiny amount of wave.
  • Deep Wave - While generally not a true 'wave', it can be made to look like spiral curls.
  • Loose Deep Wave or Romance Wave - Looser version of the deep wave, softer, more romantic curls.
  • Jheri Curl (sometimes colloquially known as 'nappy tracks') - Usually sold in very short lengths, it is often used to recreate the full 'afro' look.
  • Wet and Wavy can be packaged as Spanish Wave, Brazilian Wave or Indian Wave - Usually human hair is used, and is either naturally curly or permanently waved to appear so. Characterized as having soft, natural-looking curls that revert back to a curly state when wet.
  • Feather- Feather hair extensions use long feathers that are attached to hair.
