Upon receipt of Hair
Always inspect the hair before installation. Leave the bundle intact. If there are any problems with the hair, you should be able to detect them at that time. For Virgin Hair, when performing the cowash, leave the bundle intact and check for excessive shedding or any issues. If you find any issues at that point, please contact us, before installation or alterations.
Before Install Instructions
100% Virgin Hair must be co-washed (wash hair with moisturizing conditioner) in order to transform the hair from it's raw state. You must perform the co-wash BEFORE you make any alterations to the hair (color, perm, etc).

AVOID ALCOHOL BASED PRODUCTS TO AVOID DRYING OUT YOUR INVESTMENT!
Protecting Your Weft
While minimal shedding is normal, there are steps you can take, to ensure the longevity of your investment.
Prior to installing your hair, use weft seal to protect your investment. Weft sealing is applying a sealant to the weft to prevent shedding. Most sealants can be purchased in your local craft store and are used on fabrics to prevent fraying. The most popular brands that we have tested and approved are Aleene's Stop Fraying and June Tailor's Fray Block. It can take up to 5 days for the sealant to cure so do not wash or install your hair until the process is completed according to the instructions on the sealant packaging.
Never sew through the top of the weft. Putting a needle through the weft will damage the weft and cause shedding. To assure your wefts are kept in good condition and long lasting, we suggest sewing around the weft. In addition we suggest reinforcing the weft with a sealant to help prevent shedding.
Additional Hair Care Tips
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 dryer, flat iron, or curling iron.
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.
