PLATINUM’S TOP TIPS
• Advice prior to your extension fitting: On the day of your application we ask all clientsto wash your hair twice with a good clarifying shampoo, apply conditioner to mid lengths & ends and ensure you blow dry your hair straight do not let it dry naturally.
• After fitting: It is normal to lose up to 10 bonds/beads during the duration of your
extensions due to natural hair fall.
• Washing: Do not wash your extensions more than twice a week. When washing your hair make sure you are upright standing in the shower or at a salon basin, NEVER wash your head over the sink to wash your extensions. First wash will break down any oils & build up. Second wash will thoroughly cleanse the hair. Ensure you are using the correct
shampoo recommended by your stylist.
• NEVER apply conditioner/treatment directly to the bonds as this will cause them to loosen/slip.
• Drying: Gently towel dry your extensions to remove the excess water then apply a leave in conditioner/oil. Ensure you are using the Platinum extension brush & are brushing from the ends up so you are not pulling the hair.
• Blast off your hair ensuring the bonds are dry, section off hair & blow dry each section. Never let your hair dry naturally as this causes shedding.
• Styling: When using any heated tools (Hair dryer/straitening or curling irons) make sure you are using a heat protector recommended by your stylist. Avoid hitting of bonds with heat tools.
• Colouring: We do not recommend you to colour the hair extensions, however you can have your roots covered with a tint masking or t-bar or highlights. (Do not apply colour to the bonds).
• Sleeping: Pull your hair back into a low pony/plait at the nape of your neck, this will prevent your extensions from tangling or getting matted.
• Swimming: We strongly recommend tying your hair up and keep away from water as sea/chlorine water can damage and discolour the hair.
• Sun Protection/oil: Wear a hat to protect your hair from UV exposure, apply a UV heat protector to mid length & ends of extensions. Tie your hair up when applying after sun, sun cream & tanning products to avoid discolouration.
• Daily routine: Brush extensions from ends to root using the Platinum hair extension brush and separate the bonds.
• Hair extension life: Hair extensions will last 3/5 months if you follow the aftercare advice given by your stylist.
• Removal: Return to the salon to have your extensions professionally removed at the recommended time advised by your stylist. Never try remove the extensions yourself.
