Caring for your Hair Extensions   
- We suggest that you have a professional stylist trim any split ends, especially if you plan on doing a lot of heat styling.   

- Hot tools can contribute to split ends, shortening the life of your extensions. 
- Shampoo and condition - hydrating shampoo (Kera care or Creme of nature) bi weekly to maintain softness in manageability.  
- It is suggested that you visit your stylist regularly to have your hair and extension shampooed,  especially when wearing a sew in installation. It is critical that your hair extensions are properly cleansed and dried under a hood dryer - to avoid molding. 
 - Hair extensions should not be handled rigorously and should always be shampooed in a downward position. 
 - Keep styling products to a minimum to prevent weighing down on the hair.
- May use deep conditioner treatments to maintain smooth and luscious texture of the hair
- Using thermal heat protectants works well with longevity, use a dime size before blow dry and flat ironing or curling.
- All of our hair textures straighten easily. Notice that all our textures returns to its original wave or curl pattern after every shampoo and condition.
  - To avoid frizz allow hair to naturally air dry or dry under a medium heat hood dryer. Use a paddle/denman brush to detangle wet hair. Best detangling is done when wet, combing hair while dry can cause snagging and shedding. 

If you purchased the curly hair collection please note: curl defining  products are more effective when applied to wet hair (Paul Mitchell foam sculpt, Kinky Knot Today, or Curls) mix these products with a dab of oil to maintain softness and manageability

         - With proper hair care practice your human hair extensions should last you 1 year or 2 years with  proper care
