Brushing

-WE RECOMMEND BRUSHING YOUR HAIR AT LEAST TWICE A DAY MORNING AND NIGHT. HOLD THE BASE OF THE SCALP WHERE THE EXTENSIONS ADHERE TO THE NATURAL HAIR WITH ONE HAND AND START BRUSHING GENTLY JUST BELOW THAT WORKING FROM THE ENDS UP. 

-NOT BRUSHING ALL THE WAY UP TO THE WEFT COULD LEAVE TANGLES BEHIND THAT COULD START CREATING MATTING AT THE ROOT, WHICH WILL RESULT IN REPLACING WEFTS AT AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE. 

-BRUSHING AGGRESSIVELY OVER THE WEFT LINE WILL CREATE “LOOPING” WHERE THE HAIR IS HAND TIED ON AND MOST TIMES THE WEFT CANNOT BE SALVAGED. 

- PLEASE, LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE BRUSHING, WE WANT TO FIX THAT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 

Washing

- BEFORE GETTING IN THE SHOWER, PROPERLY BRUSH YOUR HAIR TO GET OUT ANY TANGLES. TRUST US, THEY ARE EASIER TO GET OUT OF DRY HAIR THAN THEY ARE WET HAIR.

 

- SHAMPOO TWICE WITH A SULFATE AND PARABEN FREE SHAMPOO SUCH AS KERASTASE OR ORIBE WHILE BEING MINDFUL NOT TO RUB THE ENDS OF THE HAIR TOGETHER WHILE WASHING.


-ONCE THE SHAMPOO IS COMPLETELY RINSED, ADD A HYDRATING CONDITIONER ON THE MIDS/ENDS OF YOUR EXTENSIONS FOR 5-7 MINUTES. AVOID GETTING CONDITIONER ON THE ROOT OF THE HAIR EXTENSIONS.  A WEEKLY CONDITIONING HAIR MASK IS RECOMMENDED ESPECIALLY DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS

 Drying and Styling 

-GENTLY SQUEEZE OUT THE EXCESS WATER AND BLOT WITH A COTTON TOWEL. WHILE EXTENSIONS ARE DAMP, USE A LARGE WHITE TOOTH COMB AND WET BRUSH TO DETANGLE. 

THE KEY TO KEEPING THE LONGEVITY OF EXTENSIONS IS USING LESS HEAT AND PROPER BRUSHING.

-APPLY YOUR HEAT PROTECTANT TO YOUR EXTENSIONS PRIOR TO BLOW DRYING TO HELP DETANGLE, ADD SHINE AND HEAT PROTECTION, AND NOURISH ENDS.

HAIR CAN BE STYLED USING A BRISTLE BRUSH, FLAT IRON, OR CURLING IRON.

-BLOW DRY IN A DOWNWARD MOTION ON MEDIUM HEAT BEING CAREFUL TO NOT LET YOUR BLOW DRYER GET TOO CLOSE TO YOUR HAIR. - DRYING AT LEAST THE TOPS OF THE WEFTS WILL HELP MAINTAIN THEM EVEN IF YOU AIR DRY YOUR ENDS. LEAVING TOO MUCH MOISTURE IN YOUR WEFTS TOO OFTEN, WILL CAUSE THEM TO SWELL OVER TIME AND SHORTEN THEIR LIFESPAN.

-ONCE DRY, APPLY YOUR NIGHT SERUM AND OIL TO YOUR EXTENSION ENDS TO NOURISH THEM AND KEEP FROM TANGLING OR DRYING OUT.

 

-TO SLEEP ADD NIGHT SERUM AND OIL THEN BRAID OR PUT IN HIGHT PONYTAIL BEFORE BED. THIS WILL KEEP TANGLES AT BAY, AND USING A SILK PILLOWCASE WILL GIVE YOU EVEN MORE PROTECTION!

 

-WHEN DOING A PONYTAIL OR UPDO, FLIPPING YOUR WEFTS UP INTO A HIGH PONY IS THE BEST OPTION. IF YOU LIKE TO WEAR A LOW PONYTAIL, JUST KEEP IN MIND THAT IT CAN PUT EXTRA TENSION ON THOSE FRONT BEADS, SO ONLY DO THIS OCCASIONALLY.

Vacation and Activities

- HAIR IS LIKE A DRY SPONGE IT WILL ABSORB WHAT IT COMES IN CONTACT WITH. ALWAYS PREP YOUR HAIR BY WETTING IT THEN APPLYING CONDITIONER OR HAIR MASQUE.

 

- TYING HAIR IN 2 TIGHT BRAIDS OR BUNS IS THE BEST WAY TO AVOID TANGLING/MATTING WHEN SUBMERGING YOUR HAIR IS WATER. USING A PONYTAIL OR LOOSE BRAID MAY NOT CONTAIN THE HAIR ENOUGH. THEN YOU CAN ENJOYING ANY WATER ACTIVITIES.

 

-USE A CLARIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER IMMEDIATELY AFTER SPENDING TIME IN THE OCEAN, LAKE, OR POOL. MINERALS FOUND WITHIN BODIES OF WATER CAN REACT POORLY WITH EXTENSIONS AND CAN LEAD TO DISCOLORATION OF EXTENSIONS.

-MOSS & BLACK  IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIFFICULT COLORATION OR CHANGE IN THE HAIR INTEGRITY DUE TO CONTACT WITH WATER.

-PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN USING SUNSCREEN AND AVOID ANY CONTAINING THE INGREDIENT AVOBENZONE. THIS INGREDIENT IS KNOWN TO TURN EXTENSIONS PINK/ORANGE. (THIS INCLUDES SKINCARE AND MAKEUP WITH SPF)

Products

- USING EXCESSIVE VOLUMIZERS, DRY SHAMPOO OR HAIRSPRAY ON YOUR EXTENSION HAIR CAN CAUSE THEM TO FEEL DRY. BE MINDFUL OF ONLY USING THESE PRODUCTS ON THE TOP PART WHERE YOUR NATURAL HAIR IS. 

- USING PRODUCTS THAT ARE NOT SULFATE FREE, PARABEN FREE, OR HAVE TOO MUCH PROTEIN IN THEM CAN CAUSE A BUILD UP ON YOUR EXTENSIONS AND SHORTEN THEIR LIFE SPAN.
