Caring for Platinum Hair Extensions

icon

Advice before your extension fitting:

On the day of your application, we ask all clients to wash your hair the day before with a good clarifying shampoo, apply conditioner to mid-lengths & ends and ensure you blow-dry your hair straight do not let it dry naturally.

icon

After fitting:

You can lose up to an average of 10 bonds/beads during the duration of your extensions due to natural hair fall.

icon

Washing:

You can wash your hair more than 2 times a week but lesser is better. When washing your hair make sure you are upright standing in the shower or at a salon basin, NEVER wash your head over the sink to wash your extensions. The first wash will break down any oils & build up. Second wash will thoroughly cleanse the hair. Ensure you are using the correct shampoo recommended by your stylist.

Platinum Extensions Maintenance Recommendations

Drying:

Gently towel dries your extensions to remove the excess water then apply a leave-in conditioner/oil. Ensure you are using the Platinum extension brush & are brushing from the ends up so you are not pulling the hair.

Blast off your hair ensuring the bonds are dry, section off hair & blow-dry each section. Never let your hair dry naturally as this causes shedding.

icon

Styling:

When using any heated tools (Hairdryer/straitening or curling irons) make sure you are using a heat protector recommended by your stylist. Avoid hitting of bonds with heat tools.

icon

Colouring:

We do not recommend you to colour the hair extensions, however, you can have your roots covered with a tint masking or T-bar or highlights. (Do not apply colour to the bonds).

icon

Sleeping:

Pull your hair back into a low pony/plait at the nape of your neck, this will prevent your extensions from tangling or getting matted.

icon

Swimming:

We strongly recommend tying your hair up and keep away from water as sea/chlorine water can damage and discolour the hair.

icon

Sun Protection/oil:

Wear a hat to protect your hair from UV exposure, apply a UV heat protector to mid-length & ends of extensions. Tie your hair up when applying after sun, sun cream & tanning products to avoid discolouration.

icon

Daily routine:

Brush extensions from ends to root using the Platinum hair extension brush and separate the bonds.

icon

Hair extension life:

Hair extensions will last 3/5 months if you follow the aftercare advice given by your stylist.

icon

Removal:

Return to the salon to have your extensions professionally removed at the recommended time advised by your stylist. Never try to remove the extensions yourself.

Platinum recommends that each client follows the aftercare advice as instructed to ensure the longevity of the hair. If other branded products are used, responsibility no longer lies with us. Please do not use products containing silicone, sulphate or alcohol.
