Extensions are a great way to lengthen and/or thicken hair, as well as add highlights/lowlights and fun colours without the damage of actually colouring your hair.

Your extensions are an investment - take care of them and you'll get the most mileage for your money.  Here are some basic tips and advice on the care and maintenance for your extensions:

  • Wash as infrequently as possible (sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner is the best)
  • Don't scrub at the scalp and bonds/wefts too aggressively
  • Don't allow wet hair to tangle up (No messy buns - especially when wet!)
  • Pull into a loose, low ponytail or braid at night
  • Invest in a silk/satin pillow case
  • Try not to heat bonded or tape extensions directly with styling tools
  • Brush gently.   Hold the base of your hair with the opposite hand while you brush and start at the bottom and work your way up. Consider purchasing a brush specifically made for extensions (Jessica retails these for a minimal cost)
