How will I know when I need maintenance?
There are a number of factors in your recommended maintenance schedule.  It is dependent upon your hair growth, home care and extension type.  

What is a tidy cut?
When the strands of hair that naturally shed can not leave the head because they are attached inside of a bond, they need to be removed.  These small hairs will need to be carefully trimmed from every bond to prevent the bonds from latching on to each other contributing to matting. 

What is matting and how do I prevent it?
Tangling.  With plenty of brushing, recommended home care and regular maintenance on all types of extensions, matting will not occur.

What do I do if I have matting?
Schedule and appointment as soon as possible for matting relief.  It will multiply quickly.  In severe cases extensions will need to be removed.
