MAINTENANCE 101

NO MATTER YOUR SERVICE, KEEP IN MIND...

Beware of saltwater, chlorine, and hard water! These can seriously discolor and strip hair. If need be, douse your hair in conditioner and braid before going in the water to create a barrier.  

all OVER COLOR

ALL OVER COLOR

★ Aim to wash 1-2 times a week
★ Take home a color safe shampoo
★ Avoid ultra hot water
★ Use heat protectant when using styling tools- yes, this includes blow drying! Make sure your tools are set to less than 325° F
BALAYAGW & FOILS

BALAYAGE & FOILS

★ Aim to wash 1-2 times a week
★ Take home a color safe shampoo
★ Avoid hot water to extend the life of the toner
★ To preserve ashy tones, use a purple shampoo every 3rd wash. Too much use of this product will dry hair out due to the repeated depositing of pigment.
★ Invest in a deep conditioner or mask, use every 2 weeks or so depending on how often you are shampooing
★ Use heat protectant when using styling tools- yes, this includes blow drying! Make sure your tools are set to less than 325° F
★ Come back for a stand alone toner service when you feel you'd like a refresh

BLECH & TNE

BLEACH & TONE

★ Aim to wash 1-2 times a week

★ Take home a color safe shampoo

★ Avoid hot water to extend the life of the toner

★ To preserve ashy tones, use a purple shampoo every 3rd wash. Too much use of this product will dry hair out due to the repeated depositing of pigment.

★ Invest in a deep conditioner or mask, use the first time you shampoo after your appointment. Use every 2 weeks or so from there depending on how often you are shampooing

★ Use heat protectant when using styling tools- yes, this includes blow drying! Make sure your tools are set to less than 325° F

★ Make sure you are coming back every 4-8 weeks depending on how quickly your hair grows for the best results and upkeep. Past this point, the regrowth length needs various formulas due to the distance it is from the scalp's heat. 

CREATIVCE COLOR

CREATIVE COLOR

★ Wait at least 48 hours before your first wash after your appointment

★ Aim to wash 1-2 times a week (less is more!)

★ Take home a color safe shampoo & conditioner

★ Take home a custom color conditioner; I formulate a perfect match based on the color we use in the salon

★ Invest in a deep conditioner or mask, use every 2 weeks or so depending on how often you are shampooing 

★ Use as cold of water as possible when shampooing for best results

★ Limit the use of styling tools, and use heat protectant when using them- yes, this includes blow drying! Make sure your tools are set to less than 325° F

★ Light, pastel tones can last about 4-6 weeks

★ Deeper vivids can last 6-12 weeks 

EXTENSIONS

EXTENSIONS

★ Use a high quality sulphate free shampoo and conditioner to keep the hair from slipping and the hair extensions in good condition, limit shampooing to 1-2 times a week, avoid shampooing the ends of the hair, and especially with tape ins, avoid conditioner at the roots

★ When using heat tools be sure to use a heat protection spray- the more heat tools you use heat on your hair, the shorter the life-span of the hair extens

★ Brush extensions morning and night to avoid tangling, and for extra protection, pull the hair back into a low pony or braid when sleeping

★ Never sleep with wet hair extensions, and blow dry at least the roots after showering

★ Avoid excessive chlorine exposure as it can dry out and damage the hair extensions, and if swimming, I highly recommend you apply a conditioner or mask to the hair and braid it prior

★ Every 6-10 weeks, your hair extensions will need to be reapplied to move the tapes/wefts closer to the scalp and to keep your hair healthy
