Correct aftercare is essential to maintain the quality of your hair extensions and to help prolong their life. It is important to not only follow the correct advice, but to also use the correct and recommend products. Containing some of the highest quality ingredients, our aftercare range has been specifically designed to be used with our hair extensions. Failure to use the recommended products, or follow correct aftercare advice could cause damage to the hair extensions and decrease its life span.
We recommend that you should wash your hair no more than 3 times per week.
It is important to use a professional extension brush, we recommend using the Remi Cachet Hair Extension Brush which has been designed specifically for all types of hair extensions. Hair extensions are attached to your natural hair, therefore any unnecessary pulling or tugging from a normal hair brush can damage and pull out your natural hair. You should always start to brush your hair from the bottom then slowly move up towards the top of the head to the root area.
Avoid going to sleep with wet hair; always make sure your extensions are completely dry to avoid any potential problems occurring. We suggest putting your hair into a loose ponytail or plait before bed which helps to prevent the hair from tangling or matting.
We do not recommend colouring hair extensions, however this can be done under professional supervision and is entirely at the stylists and clients own risk.
Hair extensions are not recommended for use in chlorinated water, salt water, and hard water with a high mineral content or in hotter climates than normally accustomed to as damage or discolouration can occur. Avobenzone can also cause discolouration, it is an oil-soluble ingredient used in products to absorb the full spectrum of UVA rays. You can read more about our research into discolouration and its causes on our blog here.
Products such as Malibu C Hard Water or Malibu C Swimmers can rectify the problem if discolouration should occur, however we do not guarantee that these products will work every time due to various factors.
If swimming is a must, then the extension hair must be coated in a watered down conditioner, avoiding the bonded areas and tied up securely to avoid chlorine contamination and tangling. We advise to wash thoroughly afterwards and to apply a generous amount of conditioner.
We recommend only using products that are specifically designed and made for hair extensions as they may cause damage to the bond or hair itself. It is always best to use the recommended aftercare products, such as the Remi Cachet Aftercare Range.
