Day to Day Activities
Swimming and Holidays
We do not advise that you swim when wearing extensions as prolonged water exposure especially with chemicals may weaken the bonds. Chlorine in pools and salt in the sea combined with heat can also cause the extension hair to discolour, deteriorate in condition and matt.
If you do swim we recommend you take the following precautions:
Place your extensions into a braid using a covered band.
Avoid getting the extension hair wet where possible.
Immediately after swimming, rinse hair in fresh water thoroughly.
Ensure the hair is tangle free by combing through with a wide tooth comb, separating and supporting the extension hair as you work through the sections.
DO NOT brush the extension hair when wet.
Dry hair fully and use a protein spray.
If you use a sun bed it is advisable to wrap the hair in a towel first. Sun beds can dry out the hair and melt the bonds. If you work out regularly or have regular use of a sauna or steam room make sure the bonds are completely dried as soon as possible after your session - leaving the bonds in a constant damp environment could cause them to deteriorate.
We do not advise getting Hair Extensions if you are pregnant or for one year after having a baby.
