"I think that the most important thing a woman can have - next to talent, of course - is her hairdresser"
Advice before your extension fitting:
On the day of your application, we ask all clients to wash their hair the day before with a good clarifying shampoo. Apply conditioner to mid-lengths & ends, ensure you blow-dry your hair straight and do not let it dry naturally.
You can lose up to an average of 10 bonds/beads during the duration of your extensions due to natural hair fall. This is perfectly normal and nothing to be concerned about.
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 of dirt or dead skin. The second wash will thoroughly cleanse the hair. Make sure you are using the correct shampoo recommended by your stylist for the best results.
Gently towel-dry 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.
When using any heated tools (e.g. a hairdryer, straightener or curling iron) make sure you are using a heat protector recommended by your stylist. Avoid hitting bonds with heat tools.
Pull your hair back into a low ponytail or plait at the nape of your neck. This will prevent your extensions from tangling or getting matted.
We strongly recommend tying your hair up and keeping it away from water. Sea or chlorine water can damage and discolour the hair.
Brush extensions from ends to root using the Platinum hair extension brush and separate the bonds.
