Here you can find useful tips and easy to follow instructions on how to care about your keratin hair extensions.
Washing of hair Gently comb your hair before washing beginning from the ends to the roots dividing it into three or more sections. Washing should never be made with the head down. If this is your first experience with keratin hair extensions we recommend at least the first time to clip the hair in a loose braid on the neck. Begin shampooing and massaging with water carefully from root, following the direction of the keratin hair extensions. Wet hair should be brushed, if necessary, use a brush or comb with wide tooth lengths and tips. Always dry the hair and make sure there is no moisture left. Gather hair into a braid when you go to the pool, at the beach or when you use a motorbike. If bathing in salty water, rinse hair thoroughly with fresh sweet water and dry it at your earliest convenience.
