Anagen Hair Extensions Aftercare

Follow these aftercare tips to keep your hair extensions in their best condition!
If you have bonds, We recommend that you don’t wash your hair for at least 48 hours after having your extensions applied.

Before washing: 

  • Detangle your hair with your Anagen detangling brush.
  • When washing tilt your head slightly back and let the water fall through the direction of your hair to prevent any knotting.
  • When washing your hair lather gently from the roots to the ends of your hair, do not scrub your scalp hard massage.
  • Run your fingers through your hair or use a wide toothed comb when conditioner is in your hair for extra lusciousness.
  • Apply a hair mask or leave in conditioner after every hair wash.
  • Never go to bed with wet hair, it needs to be dried thoroughly.
Drying your hair:

  • Begin by blotting your hair with an Anagen micro fibre towel to remove any excess water.
  • Go through your hair with a wide toothed comb to remove any tangles.
  • Apply heat protection serum all over your hair, concentrating on the middle to the ends.
  • Blow dry as usual, being careful not to catch the attachments of your hair as you are doing so.
  • Make sure the attachment area is completely dried.
  • If you have individual attachments ie Keratin bonds, nano beads, micro beads or Brazilian knots you must run your fingers through each individual bond of hair when drying to make sure the bonds do not dry being stuck together.
General tips:

  • Try not to tie your hair up in a ponytail or bun too tight as this can cause stress traction on your hair.
  • We recommend using salon professional brands of shampoo and conditioners.
  • Swimming is not recommended however if you do go swimming, apply a treatment mask and leave it in whilst you are swimming. After swimming thoroughly rinse your hair and apply conditioner then rinse out.
  • Salt water and strong UV rays can discolour your hair extensions, so we advise against swimming in the sea and using products such as sun beds.
  • Please note if you have tape extensions it is highly recommended that you do not use sunbeds, sauna/steam rooms, go swimming or soak your hair when having a hot steamy bath as the heat can loosen the tape attachments.
  • We do not recommend using silver shampoo on your extensions, as it can damage the extensions.
  • Using excess heat on your extensions can cause your extensions lifespan to decrease, so please always use heat protection spray to keep them in top condition.
