DO’S AND DON’TS

FOR LONG LASTING BEAUTIFUL HAIR

Do:

  • Brush your extensions to stop them from tangling.
  • Use a paraben & sulphate free shampoo and conditioner, preferably a clarifying shampoo. A clarifying shampoo ensures all residues are removed.
  • When washing, only apply conditioner to the ends and mid length of your extensions. Avoid applying any conditioner to the root area.
  • For best results, leave conditioner in ends for 3-5 minutes and comb through to remove any tangles before rinsing thoroughly.
    Weekly treatments are recommended.
  • Always wash your hair immediately after exercise or swimming.
  • Dry your hair immediately after washing. The bonds swell when wet, and if they are regularly left damp they will soften and crumble.
  • Always brush your hair before washing to ensure there are no tangles.
  • Wash your hair using vertical movements not circular or horizontal, to avoid tangles.
  • Apply leave in conditioner and a heat protector before blow drying or using any heated tools.
  • Apply oil to the ends of your hair twice a day.
  • Sleep with your extensions in a loose side plait.
  • Ensure your extensions are properly dried after washing, never leave to dry naturally or go to bed with wet hair.
  • Hold your extensions at the root when brushing to avoid tension to the tip.
  • Always wash your hair in the shower, never wash hair in the bath.
  • Keep your hair clean! DO NOT allow your hair to get oily – natural scalp oils, dirt, perspiration and products contaminate the bonds and will cause them to soften.
  • Use a soft bristle Brush or tangle teaser to brush your hair, start at the ends of your hair and work your way up.

Don’t:

  • Don’t leave your Spectrum One Hair in for longer than 3 months (or as advised by your stylist) as this will cause damage to your natural hair as well as your extensions.
  • Don’t leave your extensions to dry naturally.
  • Don’t use styling tools or hair dryer without evenly applying heat protection all over your hair.
  • Don’t allow anyone but a Spectrum One certified professional to adjust or rotate your extensions.
  • Don’t expose your extensions to prolonged periods of sun.
  • Don’t allow your Spectrum One Extensions to come in to contact with sun creams/moisturisers/fake tans etc as they may cause colour change.
  • Don’t wash your own hair over the bath as this will cause your hair to tangle.
  • Don’t attempt to adjust your extensions yourself.
  • Never blow dry your hair upside down.
  • Never blow dry your hair on a high heat, always dry on a low – medium heat.

 

Extra Points:

  • Your hair will naturally shed around 50-100 strands per day so it is not unusual to shed approximately 5-15 strands of your Spectrum One Hair over the course of your wear. Just simply pop your strand in a safe place and your stylist will re-apply.
  • Before your maintenance rotation, book a consultation with your stylist so they can review and assess your hair extensions to see if any new hair is required or if there is anything to be adjusted before your rotation.

*9-10 months is the approximate life span of Spectrum One Hair providing all home care points are followed. Spectrum One will not accept any liability for damaged hair that has not followed the correct aftercare advice.
