hair care.

 


Choosing to support ethical + sustainable products helps towards creating a fairer + more compassionate world.
  

Unlike hair extensions dipped in chemical/acids, our natural, sustainable extensions can be susceptible to slightly more tangles and shedding, which is due to the cuticles not always being perfectly aligned. This is based on the hair strands being collected from brushes rather than being cut/shaved off of a woman's head.

Keeping the hair properly moisturized and lightly detangling the hair daily ensures the longevity of your extensions. Below are tips to maintain your sustainable hair and enjoy your strands of beauty.
 

_________________________

  

DO'S + DONT'S

DO NOT cut the weft as this leads to extensive shedding and if you opt to do so, be sure to seal the weft afterwards (We use a mild glue mixed with tree sap to bond the weft, therefore, we allow the consumer to decide how strong they would like their weft glue to be)

DO NOT comb wavy/curly hair while dry (unless it is to prep for washing)

DO NOT use excessive oils, it will weigh the hair down

DO moisturize  the hair extensions daily (light spritz of water, conditioner, and small drop of coconut oil or any ideal sealant) and wash/condition once a week

DO protect your hair with silk scarf at night

DO deep condition your extensions once a week

DO use a wide tooth comb for wavy/curly extensions

*Please note: Bleaching the extensions may lead to excessive tangling // the hair has been in silicone conditioner after production to prevent excessive drying while in storage and during shipment // due to the nature of the hair extensions (i.e. inability to collect sebum from a scalp) the utilisation of silicone based products is highly recommended 

 

WEFT STRUCTURE

In order to keep the product as natural as possible we have used predominantly tree sap glue to seal the weft. Therefore, the strength may not be as strong as you would prefer. Essentially we leave the decision of weft strength up to you and encourage you to either wear the hair extensions as is or use your favourite weft glue to seal your weft.

BODY WAVY

WASHING

  • Lightly detangle the hair extensions before washing (start from the end and work your way upwards)
  • Rinse the hair in WARM water
  • Massage your favorite shampoo (sulfate-free recommended to avoid drying out the hair) in the direction of the hair texture (downwards) - DO NOT SCRUB/ROUGHLY HANDLY THE HAIR as it leads to excessive tangling. Afterwards, rinse the hair with WARM water
  • Apply a MOISTURIZING conditioner and lightly finger comb and detangle the hair
  • Allow the conditioner to sit under a plastic cap for a minimum of 20 minutes or longer (if you've made a wig with the AYUNE extensions - allow the hair to sit in a bowl of warm water mixed with your conditioner)
  • Afterwards rinse the out the conditioner with WARM water (in the direction of the hair texture) and apply a small serving of your argon (Moroccan or coconut oil also suitable) oil to seal the hair
  • Allow the hair to naturally air dry, AVOID using a hair dryer as much as possible as it can dry out the hair and reduces the longevity of the extensions

DAILY MAINTENANCE

  • Use a denman brush to lightly detangle your hair (start from the end and work your way upwards)
  • Moisturize every other day or once a week with a leave-in conditioner (depending on how the hair is holding up - please note this is human hair, so each bundle behaves differently)
  • When necessary, use a light serum/oil to give your hair extra shine



WATER WAVE

WASHING

  • Use a spray bottle mixed with coconut oil and warm water to dampen the hair extensions
  • Lightly detangle the hair extensions with a WIDE TOOTH COMB before washing (start from the end and work your way upwards)
  • Massage your favorite shampoo (sulfate-free recommended to avoid drying out the hair) in the direction of the hair texture (downwards) - DO NOT SCRUB/ROUGHLY HANDLY THE HAIR as it leads to excessive tangling. Afterwards, rinse the hair with WARM water
  • Apply a MOISTURIZING conditioner and lightly finger comb and detangle the hair
  • Allow the conditioner to sit under a plastic cap for a minimum of 20 minutes or longer (if you've made a wig with the AYUNE extensions - allow the hair to sit in a bowl of warm water mixed with your conditioner)
  • Afterwards rinse the out the conditioner with WARM water (in the direction of the hair texture) and separate the hair into small sections and use a wide tooth comb on each section.
  • Proceed with spraying a leave-in conditioner or curl activator solution on your hair (be sure to not use too much product on the hair)
  • DO NOT SCRUNCH the hair with hands as the rubbing can lead to hair cuticle breakage, but rather rub your hands through each section to allow the leave-in product the fully penetrate the stands (start from tip to root)
  • Afterwards shake the damp hair back and forth to create the curls
  • Allow the hair to naturally hair dry, AVOID using a hair dryer as much as possible as it can dry out the hair and reduces the longevity of the extensions. If you decide to use heat to dry the hair, try using a DIFFUSER set on LOW HEAT, as it will allow your curls to take form.

DAILY MAINTENANCE

  • Lightly spray the hair with your leave-in conditioner to maintain moisture (feel free to use curl activator when needed - note that with human hair, each bundle behaves differently)
  • Opt for finger combing to detangling your hair as often as possible. Using a wide tooth comb is also recommended (using a bristle brush will increase frizz and change the texture of the hair)
  • When necessary, use a light serum/oil to give your hair extra shine

 

Each bundle is unique, just like every person on this earth, so although we are providing recommendations, we highly encourage you to find the hair care process that is most suitable for your extensions xx
