Tip 1: Be gentle!

Your Minque hair extensions should be treated just like your natural hair...with care! Brush gently! When brushing your hair extensions hold your hair at the nape of your neck with one hand and using the other brush gently through the ends. This will stop your extensions from possible breakage from your hair or its weft if you are using clip ins.

Tip 2: No wet hair!

Next, try to avoid brushing your hair extensions when they are wet! Hair is a lot more weak and fragile when wet making it susceptible to breakage! If you are wearing Minque tapes, wefts or micro beads your hair should be dried directly after washing with a hair dryer on low heat. This will avoid your hair extensions matting and means you can brush your locks straight away!

Tip 3: Wash only when necessary

If you prefer our clip in or halo options for hair extensions avoid over washing! Remy hair extensions do not produce the natural oils that our normal hair does which means you don't need to wash them as regularly as you do your own hair! Try to limit washing of your extensions to once every two weeks or when there is excess build up of product, such as hair spray or heat protectant.

Tip 4: Protect!

We know you're dying to style your Minque Hair Extensions whether you're straightening or curling your extensions you must use a heat protectant! Using a heat protectant will help your hair extensions to last while using excess heat! We also recommend using a leave in conditioner or treatment after washing to lock in moisture and nourish your extensions from within!

Tip 5: Keep them safe!

Your Minque Extensions should always be stored correctly, we know some of you are prone to after a night out taking out your extensions and chucking them onto your #floordrobe but this is a big no no! After each wear ensure you gently brush your hair extensions and store in a way that the extensions won't tangle, knot or mat. We recommend purchasing a hair extensions bag or hanger.

Tip 6: Bed time behaviour!

If you're a babe rocking our permenant styles of hair extensions we've got a few must-do steps to keep your hair tangle free. Firstly never, ever sleep with your hair extensions wet this will cause excess matting and nobody wants that! Secondly, sleep with your hair extensions in a loose braid, this again will help to avoid matting, tangling, knotting and most importantly another visit to the salon to have everything fixed up. We also suggest satin or silk pillow cases to avoid knotting as well.
