It's important that your client's take care of their Hotheads Sew-In Weft Extensions when at home. We've created this list of Do's and Don'ts to help your clients get the most out of their Hotheads Sew-In Weft Extensions.

Client Do's

  • DO brush hair 2-3 times a day to avoid tangling.  Using a soft boar bristle brush, start at the ends and work your way up, always brushing in a downward motion.  

  • DO always brush before shampooing to keep hair from matting..

  • DO be sure to use our Hotheads® Hair Care to cleanse and condition hair.  It is important for second hair to receive the proper nutrients and hydration to promote beautiful and healthy looking hair.

  • DO treat with our Hydrate conditioning masque 1-2 times per week, from mid-shaft to ends avoiding the silicone bead.  This is especially important for blonde shades.

  • DO wear your hair in a ponytail or loose braid when swimming, exercising and sleeping, in order to reduce tangling.

  • DO wash your hair after swimming and exercising to avoid excess oils, which may cause slippage of the silicone beads.

  • DO protect hair while swimming with a small amount of Hydrate Conditioning Masque.  This prevents hair from absorbing harmful elements, such as chlorine or salt water.

  • DO protect while hair styling with a heat protectant. Always make sure you have a licensed professional install and remove your extensions!

Client Don'ts

  • DON‘T brush hair harshly.

  • DON‘T go to bed with your hair wet.

  • DON‘T chemically process your hair at home. Rely on your salon professional for any services while wearing extensions.

  • DON‘T remove your extensions yourself.

  • DON’T use heat over 350°F while styling the hair. 

  • DON‘T expose extensions to sunscreens, self-tanners, and bronzers.

Note: Blondes that turn pink, orange or darken are not the result of a manufacturing defect. This occurs most often from contact with sun-tanning sprays/lotions, make-up, argan oils, or is a result of mineral deposit from hard water.

Refer to your stylist for recommended products to correct discoloration. Hotheads hair extensions are real hair with a natural body wave and each pack will vary slightly in condition/texture.
