Shampooing and Conditioning

Always brush out all tangles before wetting the hair. Gently brush out the hair with a vent brush, starting at the bottom. Work slowly from the end of the hair up toward the top, always brushing in a downward direction. Never force tangles. Once the hair is completely brushed out with no knots or tangles, proceed with the shampooing.

Wet the hair by allowing tepid water to run through the hair replacement inside out.

Add recommended shampoo by first putting it in your hands and distributing it gently around the end of the hair. Next, move your hands further up the hair, working it through in the direction the hair falls. Another option is to pour two caps of human hair replacement shampoo in sink with cold water – soak for 5 to 20 minutes inside out.

Rinse thoroughly with tepid water running inside out for 3 to 5 minutes, then turn it over and continue to rinse until no shampoo foam is present. Squeeze out the excess water from the hair.

Add the recommended conditioner. Keep the human hair replacement conditioner at least half an inch away from the base. Concentrate the conditioner on the ends of the hair. Work through gently. Leave your conditioner on for 5 – 30 minutes.

Rinse the conditioner out thoroughly, as you did the shampoo. Any conditioner left in the hair or on the base will shorten the life of your Hair Replacement. RINSING IS VERY IMPORTANT!

Squeeze out the excess water gently with your hands, then blot the Hair Replacement with a towel. DO NOT SCRUB with the towel.
Spray on the recommended leave-in conditioner, again avoiding the base. (Concentrate on the ends of the hair.)

Brush through gently with a vent brush, starting at the bottom, or ends, of the hair. Always start working from the bottom and gradually move the brush further up the hair to avoid unnecessary tangling. Avoid catching the brush on the foundation.

 

Styling Do’s and Don’ts

Use only recommended styling products. Use medium to low heat when blow drying. When a hood dryer is recommended, make sure it is set on “cool.” Excessive heat can damage or distort the base.

When using a curling iron or flat iron: less is best. Excess heat will wear out the hair more quickly. Make sure your curling iron isn’t too hot.

Never perm, color or cut your own Hair Replacement.

Most wearers can go at least 10 to 14 days between shampoos.

Never perm, color or cut your own Hair Replacement.

Your human Hair Replacement is made from the finest hair available. Natural hair has cuticles, or small “barb-like” appendages. Cuticles can cause minor tangling and matting of the hair during brushing, shampooing, friction against the shoulders and neck, etc. This is natural. Tangles can be combed out carefully. Your hair has been specially treated to help minimize the possibility of tangling; however, if excessive matting does occur, remove the tangles using a vent brush, working slowly and gently from the ends and working up, always brushing in a downward direction. A small amount of conditioner may need to be applied to facilitate easier “comb outs”. Never force a tangle or a knot. If excessive tangling continues to occur, contact us.

Never store your Hair Replacement near a heat source above 120 degrees. Storing on top of a lamp, for example, can damage the base.
Sunlight fades all hair, whether it is your own or a replacement. Since the hair in your replacement does not grow and renew, protect it from unnecessary exposure to sunlight.

Sleeping in the Hair Replacement on a regular basis is hard on the hair and fiber. This will reduce the life of the Hair Replacement.
Your hair replacement will naturally lose hair over time. Having it repaired promptly will lengthen its life.
