SHAMPOO

Use a SULPHATE FREE shampoo to wash your hair. Sulphates strip the oils from your hair, as well as break down the bonds on your extensions. It is vital you use a sulphate free shampoo on all extensions for maximum lifespan. 

Washing your hair only once or twice a week will also ensure a long life. Shampoo twice per wash, thoroughly rinsing in between shampoos to avoid product build up.

Always blow dry hair after washing, ensuring the extensions are fully dry. Do not let to air dry and never go to bed with wet hair.

DETANGLE

 

The correct brush will not only keep your hair from unnecessary breakage and needing replacement more frequently, but it will also help to keep your natural hair in optimum condition too. Pulling at the root of your extensions with the incorrect brush can tug your extensions out, resulting in hair loss, thinning and damage to the root. Beauty Works Boar bristle brushes are specifically designed for hair extensions in mind and glides over strands safety

Detangle your hair extensions throughout the day and always before washing, this will avoid hair becoming tangled and lift away dirt. You can also use a wide tooth comb or Beauty Works Boar Bristle brush to detangle wet hair.

SHINE FACTOR

Hair extensions aren’t attached to the scalp, therefore the natural serum that normally comes from our hair needs replacing. Argan oil is renowned for its deeply nourishing properties, that leave hair looking healthy. Fully nourish your hair, tame frizz and flyways, whilst repairing split ends

CONDITION

Use a highly nourishing conditioner to keep hair silky soft and maintain the moisture.

Only use on the mid lengths and ends as using conditioner on the roots where your extensions are attached can cause slipping and breaking down of the bonds.

HYDRATE

Hydrate hair by using the Beauty Works Argan Oil mask, this essential mask can be applied to damp hair and left on for 10-30 minutes. Styling, colouring and being blasted by the elements can all make a dent on the health of our strands. When hair or hair extensions start to feel frizzy, dull, and dry, coat hair in the mask and comb through from root to ends. Use monthly or fortnightly to revive and restore lacklustre locks.

BED TIME

Brush your hair extensions before bed, removing any tangles or product build up from the day. Inspect your roots for any knots or tangles, inspecting your hair extension bonds and separating should be a daily habit. 

The most traditional style for sleeping with hair extensions is to secure the hair in a braid/plait. This will prevent your hair extensions from moving around causing the bonds to tangle and reduce the amount of friction on the mid lengths and ends of the hair as you move in your sleep, making the hair smoother and easier to brush in the morning.

If you are looking for a style that does not require extensive styling in the morning, a low ponytail is also a perfectly suitable style.

HOLIDAY HELP

During the summer months or hotter climates are hair needs extra TLC. UVA rays can fade your colour and UVB leads to breakage. Prolonged sun exposure degrades the protein structure of hair, often resulting in elasticity, breakage, split ends and lack of shine. Whilst UV rays often strips the colour of hair extensions, causing them to fade and even turn pink in tone.

Beauty Works cater for specific shampoos and treatments for summer strands.
