! Not everyone is suited for hair extensions and not every hair extension method is suitable for you !
Swimming: Salon Opa! cautions when swimming or exposing your hair extensions to long periods in the sun or tanning beds. We recommend avoiding saltwater, chlorinated water, and excessive exposure to UV rays, as these may damage your extensions, diminish their color, or cause them to slip from the hair. For added protection at the pool or beach, apply a hair mask before swimming. Wear your hair/ hair extensions in a bun, braided or up in a high pony to avoid contact with salt, chlorinated, or lake water. Never allow your hair to free flow when swimming.
Brushing: Your extensions are attached to your natural hair. Excessive pulling or harsh brushing can cause hair breakage and the extensions to slip. Gentle, regular brushing using a detangling spray and/or a detangling brush throughout the day will prevent tangling or matting. When brushing, softly brush from the bottom ends up to the tape bond. When tangles occur, hold the extension bond to prevent pulling, and gently remove each tangle.
Heat: Using excessive heat on your hair extensions will reduce their lifespan and wear. Take care of your new hair extensions as you would take care of your own hair. Like your natural hair, extensions can be easily damaged with too much heat. Use a thermal protecting spray to protect against heat damage and lock out frizz from humidity. Allow hair to air dry when possible. Do not apply extended blow-dryer heat or direct styling tool heat to the hair extension bond. Keep heat to a maximum of 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit to protect both your extensions and your natural hair. Free hand blow-drying on a low air setting and low heat is recommended when using a blow-dryer. As with natural hair, daily hot tool use, even on a low heat, can cause your hair extensions to become dry.
*Matting or bunching up of hair extensions: Matting is a result of damage to the cuticle, the natural protective layer of hair, due to improper care. For example, excessive heat or coloring the hair can fray the cuticle and create tangles. “Bunching up” may occur if the cuticle has been stripped from the hair due to heat, hair color, or inferior product use. Hair may look dry, dull, and as if it has expanded. Shampoo, condition, brush, and style your extensions according to the aftercare instructions to prevent damage.*When extensions slip out. Many factors can result in slippage: improper care, tension, incorrect use of hair care products, or other factors. It’s important to contact Salon Opa! at (603) 623-0060 as soon as possible if you have slippage or an extension that has come out. This will help us determine why it came out and how to protect your remaining hair extensions
