Shampoo and Conditioning

Why It's Important 

We recommend to use our own hair care line Cuticle Lisse made exclusive for hair extensions and for dry and damaged hair. Extension hair needs to be treated like its dry and damaged because it doesn’t get nutrients from your scalp. 

Shampooing 

Wet your hair and apply shampoo on your scalp and through the extensions. Thoroughly scrub your scalp but squeeze the shampoo into your extensions. Do Not Rub your extensions roughly back and forth. Rinse shampoo and repeat one more time if necessary to get it clean and all  leave in products out of your hair.

Conditioning 

Apply conditioner to the entire extension hair while avoiding the scalp area.  Conditioning the hair is vital to its maintenance. Conditioner on the scalp will cause the extensions to loosen up faster. Brush your hair starting from the ends and work your way to your roots  while holding on to the base of your extensions with the other hand to avoid tugging. Depending how often you wash your hair, use Cuticle Lisse Argan Oil Deep Conditioning Masque once a week or every other week. Gently rinse and towel dry hair with squeezing technique. Rubbing of the hair with towel can cause tangles.

Brushing

First, apply Cuticle Lisse Smoothing Leave In Therapy. For curly or frizzy hair you can also apply Keratin Leave-In Serum.

Second, brush holding on to the base of your hair/ scalp  with the other hand. Apply Cuticle Lisse Argan Oil or Serum to your extension hair and your own ends if needed.  Your hair needs to be brushed daily between washings unless you have curly hair extension. If you have curly hair you may need to wash your hair a minimum of every other day.  Brush curly hair only when wet.

Styling

Be gentle and do not  tug on your hair extensions.  You can let your hair air dry or blow dry and  then style as usual. If using a hot tool for styling, example:( Curling  iron, flat iron, ect.) spray Cuticle Lisse Thermal Defense Hot Tools Mist one section at a time right before applying hot tools to protect your hair and add hold.

Chemical Treatment-IMPORTANT

I understand that I should not chemically alter the extension hair.  If I do, it is at my own risk and I will not hold Glamour Locks or its employees responsible.

Your extensions should only be removed by a Glamour Locks Hair Extension Specialist.  Do not attempt to remove your extensions yourself or have any other person remove them.  Improper removal may cause damage to your own hair and scalp.
