Hair Care Tips

*Please note, Thick-tique is not responsible for any damage to hair extensions due to over processing with bleach, color and/or excessive heat. Please book services by professional hair care stylists and master colorists who use quality hair products.

 

Before Install

Our hair has been sampled and we guarantee minimal shedding. However, for best results, it is recommended that you seal your wefts with weft sealant and co-wash before install. Avoid cutting wefts!



Washing + Drying

COWASH regularly in lukewarm water with a sulfate-free cleansing/moisturizing conditioner. For standard wash, use a sulfate-free shampoo. We strongly recommend air drying. You should avoid using a blow dryer. DO NOT rub or massage hair with towel. Deep Conditioning monthly is also recommended. *Thoroughly rinse hair; too much product can cause buildup and stiffness. 

 

 

Styling

Avoid excessive heat! For curls, it is recommended to use Leave-In conditioner + water with flexi rods to minimize heat from curling irons. If you use curling irons, we recommend some type of heat protectant spray or serum. Avoid heavy oils unless you do not mind heavy oily hair! Also comb with a wide-tooth comb from ENDS to root. *Wide tooth combs available for purchase* If hair is wet, from shower or swimming, it should be detangled prior to drying.

 

Sleep Conditions

  Do not sleep on wet/damp hair. Wearing a satin bonnet/scarf at night is highly recommended.

     

    Hair Lengths by Texture

    Lengths are measured in straight or stretched form. This means that a curly texture will appear shorter than a silky straight texture. However, when it is stretched, it will be the same length.

    Bundle Count By Style

     

    Sew-Ins + Wigs

    For a full sewin/wig, you will need 2-4 bundles depending on desired thickness, head size, whether a closure or frontal is used and the length. Please note, the longer the hair, the shorter the weft. Longer bundles may require more hair if client is going for a really full look. Consider how much space each piece will fill.
    Up to 22": 2-3 bundles
    22"+: 3-4 bundles

    *Bundle Deals are available.

     

    Ponytails + Buns

    It is our recommendation that if you are getting a ponytail or bun, you will need 1-2 bundles (depending on length and desired thickness).

     

    Half up; Half Down

    This style if when the front half of the hair is slicked up and will be in a ponytail or bun. We recommend 2-3 bundles depending on the fullness desired. (2 for the back and one for the ponytail or 1 for the back and 1 for the front)

    If you are getting a braid style in the front and want bundles in the back, we recommend 1-2 bundles depending on the fullness desired.
