Before Install

Before installing your bundles, co-wash them with a sulfate-free, moisturizing conditioner (unless coloring immediately – see Coloring). Comb the hair gently with a wide tooth comb, starting from the ends and working your way up to the weft. Rinse your bundles thoroughly and squeeze out any excess water. If time permits, allow the hair to air-dry instead of using a blow dryer.

Install Tips

We strongly recommend that you have a consultation before any hair is installed and that a professional stylist installs your hair extensions, frontals, closures or wig.

As your own hair grows in, we recommend scheduling maintenance appointments with your stylist approximately every two weeks (depending on the application method) to avoid any excessive tangling or breakage of your own hair. If you are installing your extensions yourself, sew around the wefts, not through them, to avoid destroying the weft construction. This will prolong the life of your bundles!

Never Sleep with Wet Hair!
Sleeping with wet hair can and will cause more tangling between the wefts or bonds. This will weaken your extensions, cause extensive shedding and make brushing difficult. (Ouch!) So, before you got to bed, make sure you hair is completely dry and tie it in a loose braid or ponytail.

Always use Sulfate-Free products
These ingredients tend to strip the hair of its natural oils which will make the extensions dry, brittle, and prone to tangling. Instead, use products that are free of sulfates to maintain proper moisture and luster. Along with that, we encourage the use of oils, sprays, and leave-in conditioners applied from midshaft down to promote the health and hydration of your hair.

Using the right tools
When styling your sew-in hair extensions, it’s important to use the right tools. Avoid using tough bristle brushes as they can scratch at the hair cuticle. Scratching the hair cuticle can clump the hair extensions together, causing them to tangle and matte. We recommend using a paddle brush with coated tips or a wide-tooth comb.

Styling as Normal
Crown Collection Hair can be treated just like your own natural hair. They can be curled, blow-dried, and straightened much as you would normally. 
When you are styling these hair extensions, it’s important to use a heat protection spray, serum or oil. By using a protectant, your extensions will last longer. Always test the tips of your extensions with the lowest heat setting to avoid a costly and damaging mistake.

The Lifespan of Your Hair

The lifespan of your hair extensions will depend on the aftercare. Take care of your extensions by keeping them moisturized with leave-in conditioners, avoiding excessive manipulation, and using protective products like heat protectants. Always exercise gentle care when combing or brushing. Remember, like your own hair, using too much heat or shampooing too frequently can dry out your extensions and cause damage or breakage.
