Obsession Hair Extension Care Guide

PLEASE EDUCATE YOUR CLIENTS AND PRINT OUT THIS PAGE FOR THEM. PROPER CLIENT CARE WILL PROLONG THE LIFESPAN OF EACH APPLICATION. 

1.   Hang on to the application strip, brush hair gently working from ends toward scalp before and after washing. This will prevent stretching the hair trying to remove a tangle while the hair is wet.

2.   Use a gentle conditioning/moisturizing shampoo for dry-color treated hair (suggestions below).

3.   NEVER USE A VOLUMIZING SHAMPOO OR VOLUME BASE PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND NO PROTEIN BASE PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND!  NO REPAIRATIVE CONDITIONERS OR TREATMENTS! Volumizing and protein based products of any kind raise the cuticle of hair and can cause tangling. 

4.   Wash gently in cool to warm water. Shampoo under each application strip and rinse thoroughly by lifting each application strip, letting water run under each strip for 15 seconds each to prevent itching. Do no scrub roughly while washing. Keep the hair going in a downward direction while washing and rinsing.  DO NOT WASH THE HAIR UPSIDE DOWN! May cause tangling.

5.   Do not apply conditioner to scalp or application strips. Too much conditioner or over oily hair will cause the strip to break down and separate.  

6.   It's best not to wash more than 3 times a week unless you have a very oily scalp. Over washing will dry the hair. If your client works out daily they do not need to wash after every workout but they do need to dry the tapes completely with cool air. This prevents the bonds from breaking down from sweat. 

7.   Softly towel dry by patting before gently combing & blow drying. DO NOT RUB THE HAIR IN THE TOWEL!

9.   Brush gently below and above each application strip before drying the hair. DO NOT CATCH THE BRUSH IN THE APPLICATION STRIP. THIS WILL TEAR THE NATURAL HAIR!

10. Gently Brush 2-3 times a day. Brushing right up to the scalp will keep tangles from forming at the base of the extension. 

11. When blow-drying hair, blow downward with hair, not up into or  against hair flow. Dry with fingers then style with a curling iron or flat iron if needed. It is stressful to the hair to do a lot of brushing while blow-drying, causing extension loss. 

12. You can style your hair extensions the same way you normally style. AVOID heat styling tools on the application strips. Daily extreme heat exposure will decrease the lifespan of the extension. Turn down the temperature of any curling or flat iron. 

13. Swimming - Always wet hair with tap water, apply heavy conditioner and braid hair before swimming or place in a swimming cap to help avoid tangling. Avoid salt water, chlorine and long exposure to the sun. 

14. It is advisable NOT to TINT, COLOR, PERM or DO ANY EXTRA CHEMICAL PROCESS because it has already been treated. Our color matching process can create any hair color so no chemical process is necessary. 

15. When coloring or high lighting your natural hair around the extensions you may apply color, tint or toner to the root and natural hair but never to the extension. DO NOT APPLY color, tint or toner to the application strip or the extension. This will break down the application strip and may cause slipping or removal of the strip.

16. Braiding or tying up long extensions is recommended before bed. DO NOT LET THE EXTENSION BE PULLED BY ROLLING OR LYING ON THE EXTENSION WITH YOUR SHOULDERS.  

17. NEVER GO TO BED WITH WET HAIR.
