AIRDRY as much as you can before sticking a blow dryer to it.
When blow-drying make sure you are getting the tops of your wefts COMPLETELY dry. This will aid in longevity of your hair and overall health of your scalp. AIRDRY as much as you can before sticking a blow dryer to it, and allow your hair to be 70- 80% dry before using a brush along with your dryer.
Not 100% necessary but totally helps with any tangling at night if you sleep a little wild and you want to go the extra mile!
PURCHASING PRODUCT: It is very important you’re buying products from a reputable place. Purchase on Amazon, TJ Maxx, Target at YOUR OWN RISK. These stores are not licensed to sell PRO GRADE products. There is no guarantee to what is in the bottle itself, that it isn’t expired, hasn’t been tampered with when you purchase it outside your salon or a professional grade storefront.
Be sure to hold the base of your wefts at the scalp while brushing through your hair.
This will give your scalp and install the support it needs while combing through any tangles. It’s best you start at the bottom of your wefts and work your way to the top, using a good quality brush or comb. We have found it best to use a classic paddle brush to work all the way through everything. If you’re using a wet brush, be sure to double-check the tops of your wefts that all the tangles have been brushed out!

Think about it like this, we are waiting up to 7 days (sometimes 10 if you’re anything like us) to wash your hair! Make sure you are really dividing up the hair, getting to your natural hair and cleansing/scrubbing your scalp very thoroughly. Dry shampoo and product build up can really make a scalp angry over time, clog follicles and cause damage down the road. Double shampoo if you have to, (we do) and get all that weeklong grime all the way OUT!
Sectioning the hair out by row pre shower for an easier shampoo. If you have a lot of hair in, we understand it can be over whelming when you’re not used to it all, especially in the beginning! So why don’t we divide and conquer? Clip up your top row, then wet and shampoo the bottom, release the top, wet and shampoo THEN rinse as a whole. This will ensure everything is getting squeaky clean, not missing or neglecting anything in between! Go in for a second shampoo once everything is down.
As for conditioner, try to keep it just through the mids to the ends of the extensions and don’t be hesitant to cake it on! Make sure you are getting in between to your natural hair to be sure those ends are being conditioned as well!
We understand training your hair to go without a wash for 5-7 days can be frustrating or even feel impossible.
A top wash is something that is an amazing way to clean what’s getting seen, getting oily the fastest and the most necessary to push through those dirty looking days. You will separate all the natural hair on the crown, as well as your bangs and face framing pieces. Put ALL extensions in a ponytail behind your shoulders. Use your kitchen sink or tub (most times more comfortable then the bathroom sink) and only shampoo/condition the separated natural pieces. The crown, bangs and face framers. Blow-dry and style into the rest and you should be good to push through a few more days!
Going to the beach on vacay?
Love getting in the pool, ocean or lake? Amazing! You can totally do that. Here’s a few tips to help you manage your mane while you’re away…
First suggestion would be to commit. If you’re going to get in, get all the way in with your hair down. Being in braids or a pony half wet can really create a mess for you. From our personal experience, commitment is KEY!
If you do decide to get in, first brush your hair all the way out! Then coat it in MR SMITH Leave in or The IN COMMON Magic Myst. This will serve as a layer of protectant from the sun, salt or whatever is floating around in the lake while providing moisture. Once you’re out returning to your boat or beach towel, apply the leave in of choice again along side a brush or comb out, for another round of protection for when you get back in the water that day.
Shower to rinse out the chemicals/salt ALL THE WAY OUT, lightly shampoo, smother in conditioner then give it a good brush!
If you are going back into the ocean, pool or lake the next day, a light shampoo is optional but not totally necessary. You can just give it a GOOD rinse and then condition. ALWAYS finish with a leave-in and serum. This way you have an added layer of protection when you get back in the water.
Specific MINERAL SUNSCREEN must be used or extensions are at risk of turning a rust/pink color!
Our most loved brand is Bare Republic (found at target) but there are so many others. The chemical we’re trying to avoid is AVOBENZONE. As long as that isn’t in your ingredients list, it is safe to use!
If you’re a girl who loves to break a sweat, best thing to do post-workout is to blow-dry the wetness out of the hair on a cool setting, dry shampoo the natural roots if necessary, and add serum to the ends if feeling dry!
MR SMITH Dry Shampoo is our personal fave. It removes impurities, oil, and odor while having curated ingredients to stimulate and revitalize the scalp. Blow drying this in on a cool setting is a good tip to distribute evenly!
