This is a suggested method-- feel free to experiment. *** These
instructions are given as recommendations ONLY and should NOT be considered as professional advise). ***
Supplies you will need to have on hand before you begin
3 to 6 hair clips
(Hair tie is useful to have on hand to hold hair up out of way of other hair while working, in a
ponytail if needed)
Two mirrors, one to place in front of you and one to place behind you while applying the extensions.
***Before you begin working decide placement of the hair wefts. The first trac begins approximately two inches
above the nape hairline (at the back of your head) and curves to the shape of your head.
1. Pull all of your hair up to the top of your head and use hair clips to hold it up, clipping your hair up
away from the part.
2. Beginning at the base of your head, make a horizontal part across the back of your head from ear to ear
at eye level, keeping part as straight as possible. This is where you will apply
your first row of extensions.
3. Measure the hair weft across the part.
3a. Cut a piece of the extension that will fit into the part.
4. Apply a measured amount of glue to the (wefted) or sewn band on the unfinished side ( the inside of the
weft where it is sewn together as a double weft).
5. Place the glued weft into place along the part, being careful to place the hair on the part CLOSE to the
hairline, but NOT DIRECTLY ON THE SCALP .
6. Hold The Weft In place against your hair for ABOUT 30 SECONDS, to make sure the weft is securely in place.
OPTIONAL ~Blow dry for several seconds to set the glue. (I do not do this step myself, but some of my customers have recommended it.)
7. Repeat this process an inch above the new finished trac, (it is a good idea not to apply the wefts too closely
together, this will allow your natural hair and scalp room to breathe and also prevents the wefts from bonding to one another.
8. To add height to the top of your head, this process is repeated continuing from just above your ears. Measure
and cut a piece of hair extension that will fit into a semi-circle along this part.. OPTIONAL ***Before gluing this extension,
it is recommended that you wash and dry the small section around the band to make it more pliable for STYLING. (I do not do this step, I just apply it as I did the other extensions, if it
does loosen you have to CAREFULLY re-inforce the weft with bonding glue.)
9. Additional pieces may be added for desired thickness.
*You may want to shape the ends by splitting your hair in half in back, then pull each side forward and trim
hair in a downward angled v shape (towards the chest) for each side.
*You are now ready to style as you wish (curling the ends with a curling iron adds a very attractive touch!)

Extension care tips
- DO NOT COLOR THE HAIR WITH PERMENANT COLOR(TRY NOT TO COLOR THEM AT ALL) but if you MUST color them, use ONLY semi permanent hair color as it contains approximately only 5%
peroxide compared to permanent hair color which contains 20% peroxide.
The hair extensions should be gently combed smooth without any tangles before washing.
- AS FOR BRUSHING, MINIMIZE BRUSHING AND USE BOAR OR STATIC FREE BRUSH IF POSSIBLE.
You can leave the hair tracs in your hair when you GENTLY wash them, DO NOT MESAGE THEM OR SCRUB THE SCALP too thoroughly
because this will loosen the extension wefts, it would be best to wash and rinse in the shower where the shampoo, conditioner
(NEVER use Oil Base conditioners) and water (warm only) can run DOWNWARDS, preventing tangling. Conditioner must always be
used, being careful NOT to apply directly on the wefts, just lightly but thoroughly through your hair.
I SUGGEST THAT YOU GET OUR SHAMPOO, COND. AND LUSTER MIST BECAUSE OUR SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER IS VERY LIGHT AND MILD: LUSTER
MIST IS A LIGHT SPRAY MIST THAT WILL HELP CONTROL THE FRIZZINESS CAUSED BY HUMIDITY, BRUSHING ETC. LUSTER MIST WILL GIVE THE
HAIR A LITTLE BIT OF A WET LOOK .
Washing extensions while in the hair does tend to loosen them up. Reapply bond
glue to re-inforce the wefts AFTER hair is dry to the loosened areas.
*****NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, SLEEP IN WET HAIR EXTENSIONS! THEY
OPTIONAL~(I do not remove extensions for about 4 to 6 weeks after I have put them in my hair. I follow the
above washing and care procedures as the more you wash and style the extensions, the more you weaken them and over time you
lose the luster they initially had when they were new and first applied to your hair.
***After washing, gently towel dry (if possible is best to avoid hot hair dryers or blow dryers) or dry naturally
away from sunlight.
-DO NOT USE EXCESSIVE HEAT( BLOW-DRYING & CURLING IRON) OR MINIMAL USE OF MODERATE HEAT
***After washing, from the bottom, gently
brush hair using a downward motion, gradually moving up until you have brushed all the hair.
BOND GLUE REMOVAL TIPS
***NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE WEFTS FROM YOUR HAIR BY PULLING THE OUT WITHOUT APPLYING
THE BOND GLUE REMOVER AS IT WILL CAUSE SEVERE DAMAGE AND BREAKAGE OF YOUR OWN HAIR!***The glue used is specifically
designed for the hair and will come out easily, (BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE GLUE REMOVER, TO AVOID SEVERE DAMAGE
TO YOUR OWN HAIR), for safest removal and minimum hair loss, be sure to let the bond remover saturate VERY WELL INTO THE WEFTS,
prior to lifting them off your own hair. After all wefts are removed from your hair, clean your hair thoroughly with shampoo
and follow with a favorite conditioner.
Residual glue left in the hair combs out easily with shampoo, conditioner or oil.
