Thank you for choosing Rebellion Hair Extensions. We are passionate about our work and want you to get the most out of your beautiful new hair. Regardless of the quality of hair you choose, your extensions will require special care to keep them looking their best. Please read this information carefully. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.
You may style your extensions with straighteners/ curling irons, but please use a heat protection spray and keep heat well away from the bonds. Remember that heat styling is drying, so try not to do it all the time if possible! Braiding your hair overnight is a good way to create a natural wavy style, that you can just ‘brush and go’ in the morning.
You may dye your hairline/ t-section re growth/ roots, but please do not attempt to dye your extensions without consulting us first. Your bonds may degrade, and some types of hair are not suitable for colouring and you could ruin it.
Carry your brush around with you! You will want to give them a good brush through a couple of times per day.
Treat your Hair Extensions in the same way and with the same respect as you would natural long hair.
When brushing your Hair Extensions, always go gently and work from the bottom upwards.
Only use recommended Hair Extension Brushes such as the Denman Tangle Tamer Paddle Brush. These are designed to gently glide over the attachments without causing any damage and are much more kind on the hair.
Always brush out all knots before washing your Hair Extensions.
Wash your hair upright with the water running down your back (i.e standing in a shower)
Only use a shampoo & conditioner that is suitable for Hair Extensions. Pureology Hydrate range or Moroccan Oil is highly recommended. Use conditioner on the mid-lengths and ends only, otherwise your bonds will degrade.
Apply a leave-in conditioner /oil after washing and before styling. Because the Hair Extensions will not receive your natural scalp oils, they will need to have moisture replaced regularly on the mid-lengths and ends. Lack of moisture will cause your Hair Extensions to become brittle and break easily leading to split and ratty ends.
After washing Hair Extensions use a wide toothed comb to gently detangle wet Hair Extensions.
Try to tie your hair in a loose ponytail, twist or plait before bed to avoid tangles.
Separate your bonds / Micro Rings with your fingers regularly to help discourage tangles in your new hair growth.
For Pre Bonded Hair Extensions ensure you have a mid- install maintenance check (recommended around 6 weeks).
Sunbeds can degrade your Hair Extensions so please wrap them in a towel to protect them.
Do not wash your hair for at least 48 hours after having your Hair Extensions fitted. This will allow them time to relax and the bonds to set.
Never use a shampoo that contains Sulphates, Silicone or a silicone derivative like Dimethicone etc. This will break down your bonds and will cause the Hair Extensions to slip out.
Never get conditioner on your bonds or Micro Rings. This will break down your bonds or clog up your rings and will cause the Hair Extensions to slip out.
Avoid getting styling products (especially those containing silicone) on your bonds as this can also cause the bonds to weaken which may cause the Hair Extensions to slip out.
Don’t wash your hair upside down (i.e tipping your head over a bath). This will put additional strain on your roots and bonds / rings. It will also cause tangling.
Do not chemically straighten or perm your extensions.
Don’t brush harshly or tug the Hair Extensions as it can loosen and damage the connections.
Don’t twist, wring or rub the extensions when wet – always squeeze excess water out instead. The same applies when towel drying.
Do not go to bed with wet Hair Extensions.
DON’T PICK at the Bonds or Micro Rings.
Avoid washing your Hair Extensions more than 2 or 3 times a week. The top of your hair (crown and front area) can be washed more frequently if necessary. Alternatively, dry shampoo (i.e Batiste) is great for freshening up Hair Extensions in between washes.
PLEASE don't attempt to remove extensions yourself, it can break and damage your hair! We offer a removal service, and sometimes your hair can be reused if in good condition, so please ask.
Hair On Holiday/Swimming:
We do not recommend wearing Hair Extensions abroad or swimming due to the chemically treated water and the heat. However - If you chose to then please follow our advice.
Wear a hat to avoid harsh sun rays drying out your hair and to protect the Bonds or connections from the heat.
Do not bake your Hair Extensions directly in the sun while sunbathing.
Keep your Hair Extensions out of both sea and pool water. Wash your hair immediately if this happens.
If the water is chemically treated, wash your hair with bottled water.
And finally.. Enjoy your new hair! ❤
