Not all professional grade products
are suitable for hair extensions!
Hair extensions require the use of specialized products to ensure the hair is being nourished and cared for in the way that is specific to Hair Extensions. Many brands on the market do not provide the essential ingredients that will penetrate the hair shaft and deliver nutrients to the hair, instead they strip the hair too much and leave it feeling dry and course. You must avoid any and all sulphates, parabens and other harsh chemicals. Other natural hair care has molecules too large that weigh down the hair or create a coated layer onto the hair, these will not benefit the way your hair looks and feels.
Why we chose DAVINES as our prefered product line
After experimenting with many professional product brands, we introduce DAVINES as our preferred product of choice for all of your hair aftercare needs. DAVINES uses high quality natural and highly effective ingredients that will benefit your hair each time you use them. Instead of feeling like you have to wash your extensions less, think of washing your hair as beneficial because you’re giving it vital nourishment that will hydrate and strengthen your hair. You will love the DAVINES experience, and can feel great about using an eco friendly, cruelty free and sustainable beauty product.
