Products to Avoid

Do not use ANY products containing the following ingredients on hair extension wefts! They will cause damage.

 

  • Quaternium 80,95,16 – Encourages a fast-acting blow-dry and will cause hair breakage.
  • Dimethicone only if followed by Dimethiconol. Do not use if only Dimethicone.
  • Silicone-based products that are not water-soluble will adhere to the hair.
  • Protein dominate based products – Hair becomes brittle and will break.
  • Olaplex – it’s a bond-building product, protein-based.
  • Sunscreen with Avobenzone (Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane) – It will turn extensions orange. We always advise using caution when using any sunscreen.

Cutting Wefts

  • We do not recommend cutting the wefts as this will result in shedding.
  • We advise stylists to fold the wefts to fit instead of cutting.
  • If you choose to cut a weft, do so at your own risk.

Weft Care

  • Prior to install be sure to gloss hair wefts. This will prevent fading.
  • Always use a thermal heat protectant on the hair when using styling tools. This will prevent the hair from burning especially light blondes.
Everything Hand Tied is NOT responsible if the stylist does not ensure these measures for their client’s benefit.

Client Education

  • After initial installation, educate your client on how to properly brush their hair. This is a new journey they are just beginning.
  • Be sure your client leaves with the proper tools and products so they can maintain their fabulous new mane at home.
