Detangle your hair before washing it, and before going to bed. Use a wide-toothed comb, a wig brush, or a special looper brush. A looper brush is specially designed for extensions, and has looped bristles. Start combing your hair from the ends, and work your way to the roots in small sections. Never comb straight down from roots to the ends.
If you just got your extensions, wait a few days before combing your hair. If you must comb your hair, do so gently to avoid causing additional tension. Also, avoid getting too close to the joint.
Wash your hair once or twice per week using a gentle shampoo. You should wash sewn-in extensions about as often as you wash your natural hair. Lather your hair gently, and work the shampoo downwards, from scalp to ends. Try to avoid touching the sewn part. Massage your hair using circular motions.
Ask the stylist who did your extensions what sort of shampoo you should use. She might be able to recommend a shampoo that is best for your hair as well as your extensions.
Take care of your extensions and use light moisturizers. Start applying the conditioner from just below the sew-in base. If you apply too much conditioner where the extensions connect with your real hair, your extensions may fall out.
Conditioner does not actually contain any detergent, so there is no need to place it so close to your scalp.
Dry your hair all the way to the roots. When you get extensions sewn in, you end up with twice as much hair. It looks great, but it will take twice as long to dry. Make sure that you dry your hair completely, or you will risk the extensions loosening or smelling bad.
Consider spraying your hair with a heat protectant first. This will protect both your hair and your extensions from the hairdryer's heat.
Use a lower heat setting, when possible. High amounts of heat can damage your hair. It will take longer, but your hair will be healthier.
Avoid using heat styling on your hair, such as straightening or curling on high heat. If you must heat style your hair, use a heat protecting spray and a medium to low temperature.
You can also use no-heat styling techniques to avoid heat damage.
Cover your hair with a net or sleeping cap before going to bed. You can also wrap a silk scarf around your head before you go to sleep. This will protect your extensions, and keep them from getting frizzy or tugged out while you sleep.
Avoid going to sleep with loose hair. When you move around in your sleep, you will loosen the extensions, and they won't last as long. Braid the extensions or put them up in a ponytail before you go to bed.
When taking out your extensions, please brush hair out throughly before shampooing. You do not comb/brush hair out, it can result in matting, tangling and breakage!
It is best to have a professional take down your hair extensions.

Proper hygiene is very important. Please keep lashes clean by regular washing. We have a special foaming lash bath eyelash cleanser available online or in our salon. Use only mascaras that are safe for eyelash extensions, no oil-based or waterproof mascaras. We have extension safe mascaras available for purchase at your appointment, or online. Only apply the mascara to the tips of your lashes.
After showering avoid rubbing lashes. It is best to blot them with a towel and let them air dry.
Use care when applying facial and eye creams to avoid the lash line. Too many oil based products can break down the adhesive.
Do not get your eyelashes wet.
Do not use a spa, sauna or pool.
Avoid pulling or rubbing your eyes.
Do not use eyelash curlers with your extensions. With proper application you will not need them.
ONLY use oil-free makeup remover. We carry several brands in our studio and also provide clients with a do-it-yourself eyelash wash.
