Hair Extension Care

Shampooing: Excessive washing and styling may cause damage to the cuticle, the natural protective layer of hair, and decrease the wear or luster of your hair extensions. We recommend shampooing your extensions as little as possible, 1-3 times per week, using sulfate free shampoo, conditioner and detangling spray. A hair extension mask can be used once per week or as often as needed to maintain the integrity and soft feel of your extensions

Coloring: Salon Opa! does not recommend applying color or toner to your hair extensions. Coloring, toning, or chemically treating your hair extensions may shorten their life span.


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.
