Our hair can last a year plus with good maintenance. We suggest you use styling products minimally to avoid build up. It is also recommended to avoid using alcohol based products as this will damage and dry your hair extensions. Curly and wavy hair must be treated with special care. Use a spray bottle of water and comb trough using a wide tooth comb. It is important to start combing at the end and working your way up your scalp. Comb your hair only when needed as excessive combing or brushing will decrease hair longevity.
We recommend the following products because we have used them before and they extend the longevity of our hair. If you are allergic to any of them please be advised to use your favourite products and follow the instructions on the labels.

We suggest you wash your hair every one to two weeks using good quality shampoo such as l oreal, tresemme or aussie range. Make sure you are not allergic to the products listed above. Start by detangling your hair then part it into four using hair bands. Wet the hair thoroughly with lukewarm water and gently shampoo the hair from root to tip using your fingers to distribute the products. Rinse well without scrubbing. Repeat the process until the hair is clean. Towel dry the hair to remove excess of water.
Apply a generous amount of deep conditioning or mask of your choice using your finger tips to distribute product and starting from the tips and working your way up the roots. Leave in for two hours. After two hours rinse the hair ensuring all the product has been rinsed out. Apply a reasonable amount of hair serum (for straight hair) or leave in conditioner (for deep wave or curly hair) on damp hair. This will revive the hair’s beauty and extend its longevity. It will prevent the hair from drying, shedding and tangling. Allow hair to air dry. Always air dry your hair as direct excessive heat will dry out the hair and make it difficult to maintain.
Style your hair as desired using bendy rollers or hot tools such as straighteners, tongs or curly wands. We suggest you use a reasonable amount of leave in conditioner in curly hair before using curly wands. This will help to get beautiful soft curls. Also curly hair is at its best when moiturised. Once again remember not to use alcohol based products as they will damage your hair.
