BEFORE INSTALLING

How to co-washing your BUW extensions

Co-washing your extensions before installing is an essential step to not only gently cleanse the hair but also add luster, shine and bounce back into the hair for a flawless install.

Step 1: Saturate the hair with cold water and apply a sulfate free moisturizing conditioner.

Step 2: Comb conditioner through extensions with wide tooth comb. Hold hair at the weft and wash in a vertical motion, careful not to create friction, by back and forth movement. This may cause the hair to tangle easily.

Step 3: Let conditioner sit for at least 5 mins.

Step 4: Rinse thoroughly with cold water to close the hair cuticles and lock in moisture & shine.

Step 5: Let hair air dry. DO NOT blow dry your hair extensions, to avoid heat damage.

NOTE* We only suggest shampooing your extensions if the hair cuticles have an excessive amount of product build up causing the hair to be weighed down. Regularly, shampooing can dry out the hair and strip it of its natural moisture. Be sure to use only sulfate free shampoo when cleansing and always follow it with a moisture conditioner.

How to Prevent Shedding Before Installing

All Extensions are subject to minimum shedding. However, chemically processing the hair, vigorously brushing, combing and constant wear/tear can cause the hair to shed more than normal. However, you can prevent shedding by implementing these tips

FOR WEFTED HAIR

TIP 1: RE-SEAL YOUR WEFTS- Before installing your hair, open and un ravel the bundle of hair. Lay it flat across a non-stick surface such as counter top or table. Apply a weft sealant of your choice along the top of your wefted bundles. Applying sealant on one side should suffice, as most sealers seep through onto the other side. Allow sealant to completely dry before installing.

TIP 2: DO NOT cut your wefts. If so, use a weft sealer on each cut end.

TIP 3: SEW AROUND YOUR WEFTS-It’s imperative not to puncture sewing needle through your wefts. Be sure to have your stylist sew around your wefts. Puncturing through the wefts will cause the stitch along the track to loosen and immediately prompt shedding.

FOR LACE BASE EXTENSIONS I.E CLOSURES, FRONTALS, WIGS

TIP 1: Be very careful and gentle when handling lace base extensions Ex: Closures, Frontals and Wigs as the lace fabric is very delicate. Vigorously brushing, combing and plucking with tweezers can cause punctures within the lace.

TIP 2: Do not scratch your lace with foreign objects i.e rattail combs, bobby pins you will rip the lace.

TIP 3: Avoid bleaching the knots of your lace, chemicals can cause the knots & lace to weaken and may promote shedding. Use a concealer powder in lieu of bleach.

TIP 4: Use a spray sealant such as Knot Seal to help minimize and prevent shedding.

Bedtime Preparation

Tip 1: Satin/Silk is a must!

Tip 2: DO NOT tie or secure the hair with cotton scarves. Satin/silk will maintain your hairs natural moisture as cotton will dry it out completely over time, also causing friction as you toss and turn throughout the night.

Tip 3: If you find yourself having trouble keeping your satin cap/head wrap on through the night, you can always sleep on a satin/silk pillowcase.

Swimming/Vacation

Chlorine water and sunlight are our hairs worst enemy! Conditioner, conditioner, conditioner, before and after each time you swim. If you wear hair color, avoid natural sunlight as much as possible, as the sunlight affects the PH balance in your hair. Use a swim cap to protect your style if possible. DO NOT chemically process your hair if you've been swimming. If you're wearing braids/weave during the summer or on vacation, be sure to rinse thoroughly, as sand and chlorine tends to seep down into your braids.
