7 Extension After Care Rules


It may take a couple of nights to get used to the feeling of the extensions. The scalp may even feel itchy the first 1 to 2 weeks as your scalp adjusts to more hair, this will fade. 

It is normal for a few extension pieces to fall out, keep them safe and bring them to your next appointment to have them re-installed. 

Maintenance Appointments

Regular maintenance is essential. If you go longer than the recommended period of time, it can cause tangling of your hair and therefore damage your own hair. Follow the guide below to book your maintenance:

Thin/Delicate hair: 6-8 weeks

Average thickness hair: 8-12 weeks

Thick, Strong hair: 12-16 weeks


Choose a soft bristle or loop brushes. When your hair is wet, use wide-tooth combs to gently detangle . Brush your hair and extensions carefully, starting from the ends and gradually work your way up. Be gentle and patient while brushing.


Tie your hair back in a loose braid before bed. Never sleep with wet hair, this can cause matting.


Apply shampoo to the scalp and delicately lather the length of the extensions, avoid rubbing. Condition below the bonds to preserve their strength.  Remember, frequent washing can weaken the bond, so aim to wash your hair 1-2 times per week.


Consider using a heat protectant spray if you use heat on your extensions . Using a smoothing oil on the ends will keep the extensions soft. You can use hairspray, leave in conditioner,, dry shampoo etc. 

Avoid getting oil based on products on the bonds. 


Unlike micro beads, nano beads don’t have a silicone layer that leaves sticky substances in the hair when you blow dry. Still, avoid blow drying the hair at the roots to maintain the bond. Straighteners/ curling irons can be used but avoid touching the bead. Blow dry your scalp up to the bead to avoid matting, the remainder of your hair can air dry. The #1 cause of matting is sleeping on wet hair.
