Carefully cut bundle wraps from your extensions. Mimicking folding sheets, take one end of the extension and line it up with the other. Take care to detangle hair before getting it wet. Fill a large enough sink or bowl with warm water. Fully submerge hair to guarantee maximum saturation. Follow this up by shampooing twice and conditioning once with a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.
This next step is the most vital in this prep process. Thoroughly rinse the conditioner from hair in cold water. Continue to rinse until all suds dissipate. This is crucial as any remaining residue will result in stiff hair. Do NOT blow-dry the hair. Allow hair to air dry by hanging or lying flat. When hair is completely dry, you are ready for installation.
Curly Hair Prep
For curly hair, gently cowash in cool water with a sulfate-free conditioner. Apply the same method used for other hair types, taking care not to massage hair while washing. After this, apply a curl-defining cream to seal curls, prevent frizz and stop poofing. Scrunch hair gingerly to define curls. Hang or lay down to air dry. Do NOT use a blowdryer.
