  • Use a paraben & sulphate free shampoo and conditioner, preferably a clarifying shampoo. A clarifying shampoo ensures all residues are removed.

  • 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.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Never blow dry your hair on a high heat, always dry on a low – medium heat. Tapes will loose stickiness if left wet.
    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.
