CLIENT HOMECARE ADVICE
With the correct home care, Spectrum One Hair should last around 9-10 months*. Here are some tips and tricks to follow to keep your hair looking beautiful until your next rotation.
• Brush your extensions to stop them from tangling.
• Use a paraben & sulphate free shampoo and conditioner, a moisture or colour range is best. Avoid natural products as they contain too much protein, which is bad for extension maintenance. Any volume, repair or protein products are not suitable.
• 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.
• Dry your hair immediately after washing. The bonds swell when wet, and if they are regularly left damp they will soften and crumble, never leave to dry naturally or go to bed with wet hair.
• Wash your hair using vertical movements not circular or horizontal to avoid tangles.
• Apply leave in conditioner and 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.
• Always brush your hair before washing to ensure there are no tangles.
• 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.
• Use a Malibu C Hardwater Wellness Kit to prevent any hair discolouration when in contact with suncreams, the sun and any hard water, well water and foreign water with high levels of copper. To stop discolouration, make sure your water is correctly filtered and maintained.
• 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.
• Please ensure that your stylist is a certified trained Spectrum One professional.
• Don’t leave your Spectrum One Hair in for longer than 3 months (or as advised by your stylist) without rotation or removal as this will cause damage to your natural hair as well as your extensions.
• Don’t leave your extensions to dry naturally.
• Do not use dry shampoo on the tips, as it will cause them to crumble.
• Don’t use styling tools or hair dryer without evenly applying heat protection all over your hair.
• Do not allow anyone but a Spectrum One certified professional adjust or rotate your extensions.
• Don’t expose your extensions to prolonged periods of sun.
• Do not let chlorine have any contact with hair, as it will cause discolouration. Do not go swimming. If you go on holiday and the country has hard water, you hair could turn an orange or pinky colour. This is not a Spectrum One hair extension fault but the hard water reaction with suncreams, the sun etc leaving a mineral build up and residue on top of the colour. Malibu C Hard Water Wellness Kit will remove this. Please not that it CAN be removed with no chemicals and causes no harm to you hair.
• Don’t allow your Spectrum One Extensions to come in to contact with sun creams/moisturizers/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 maintain or adjust your extensions yourself.
• Never blow-dry your hair upside down or on a high heat, always dry on a low – medium heat.
Extra Points …………………………………..
Before your maintenance rotation book a consultation with your stylist so they can review and asses your hair extensions to see if any new hair is required or if there is anything to be adjusted before your rotation.
• Your hair will naturally shed around 50-100 strands per day so it is not unusual to shed approx. 5-15 strands of your Spectrum Hair over the course of your wear. Just simply pop your strand in a safe place and your stylist will reapply these for you.
