Hair Care Guide

“Welcome to the Glam Life”

                At GLAM LUXE HAIR, we are committed to providing you with luxurious virgin hair. To ensure you’re fully satisfied with our hair, please follow this hair care guide.

Pre-Installation Requirements:

1.     First Always wash the extension hair before installation It is important that you keep the plastic security band on the weft during this process to avoid tangling.

2.     Run your fingers through the hair.

3.     Set out to air dry.

4.     If there are any problems with the hair, you will be able to detect them at this time. If you detect any problems, contact us immediately. If there are no problems with the hair within the first two weeks, it can be assumed that the hair is fine. If problems arise after two weeks, the problem does not lie in the hair or workmanship.

Shampooing and Conditioning:

• For an effective and cost efficient conditioner, we recommend Glam Luxe Conditioner, which we sell on the premise or can ship to you. This product should be used twice a week (3 times if you are very active). Apply a quarter size portion to shampooed hair and leave on 5 minutes. Rinse and style as desired.

• Conditioning the hair is vital to its maintenance. However, it is possible to over condition the hair. Some signs that the hair is over-conditioned are brittleness and tangling. If this does occur, your best resource is to use a deep-cleansing or chelating shampoo.

• If you use hair spray or other styling products, try to avoid those containing alcohol. (Alcohol can be very drying to the hair.) Styling products create build up on the hair and it is recommended that a deep cleansing shampoo be used once or twice a month to remove build-up. Build-up can make the hair dry and can cause tangling. Use moisturizers to avoid this problem.

• If you must use heat, be sure you use a leave in conditioner first.

• Although the extension hair is real, it is not receiving nutrients from the scalp like your own hair. Heat is your hair extensions biggest enemy. The more you use on it, the shorter the life span of your hair. We cannot guarantee that the hair will remain silky if you use the blow dry, flat iron, or curling iron. We also recommend that for curling the hair, you use steamrollers.

• When you sleep, we highly recommend that you braid, wrap or ponytail your hair together to prevent tangling. This will save time that would be spent untangling the hair the next morning.

• When washing the hair, always wash it going in a downward motion. Use your fingers in a horizontal motion between wefts to clean your scalp. When rinsing, do the same to be sure that all the shampoo and conditioner residues are washed out.

• If you perm, tint, bleach or cellophane the hair, you do it at your own risk. We do not guarantee any hair that has been chemically altered. If you must chemically alter it, then be sure to do a test strand first. This will allow you to test how the hair will hold up to the chemicals.

Daily:
• Brush or comb through to style.
• Use styling aids, such as mouse, gel, and hairspray in moderation (preferably alcohol free products).

Sleep:
Before going to bed, braid your hair into one loose large braid at the back of the neck.
•After waking up, undo braid and comb through beginning at the ends and working your way up to roots.

 Swimming:
It is not recommended that you swim with extension hair. However if you do the following precautions are recommended.
• Never wear a swimming cap or anything that covers your hair, the friction may cause matting.
• Before swimming comb out tangles.
• Braid hair into one braid at back of neck.
• Try to keep head above water.
• Do not swim under water.
• No diving.
• After swimming keep head out of shower.
• Immediately after showering undo braid, comb hair and let air-dry.
• Follow with appropriate shampooing and conditioning as needed.

Sauna:
• Braid hair into one braid at back of neck.
• The water of the sauna will penetrate the hair and wet it.
• Do not wrap hair in towel, which will compress it.
• After sauna keep head out of shower.
• Immediately after showering undo braid, comb hair and let air-dry.
• Follow with appropriate shampooing and conditioning as needed.
