Brush your hair regularly, especially if wearing it down, and always before washing your hair.  Always start by gently gathering and holding your hair in a ponytail, to brush the knots from the ends of the hair, before brushing from the mid-lengths down, and finally from the tops, being careful over the bonds. Hold and support your hair to prevent snagging.  Don’t forget to clean your hairbrush regularly too.  

Washing Absolutely don’t leave your bonds to dry naturally, but always thoroughly dry them on a low-temperature setting.  If hassle-free beach waves are the look you want, then add some hair oil to the lengths and ends before plaiting and leaving the lengths to dry naturally. 

Treatments are so tempting and before you dive into your bottom draw for the array of please remember that not all products are suitable for hair extensions. Not only could they deteriorate the bonds but also affect the colour and condition of the bonds.  To avoid a hair emergency, stick to the products you know are okay with your hair and maybe either leave your hair conditioner on the ends longer or use hair oil to nourish and hydrate your tresses.
