Your Vanity U-Tip hair extensions are made using on the finest grade of virgin cuticle intact human hair. When treated with love and care will last up to 18 months. Each strand of hair weighs 1g is double drawn from root to tip. Always have your U-Tip extensions fitted by a qualified technician.
Four main rules
- Always brush from root to tip every day, in the morning and again in the evening
- Ensure your hair extensions are completely dry before going to bed
- Sleep with hair in loose plait or bun
- Invest in good aftercare products that suit your hair type as well as good for the extensions
Wash care advice
Ensure hair is brushed and tangle free before washing. Always use a non sulphate shampoo and a moisturising/nourishing conditioner. Begin by shampooing the hair twice by applying the shampoo from root to tips concentrating on the mid length and ends of the hair.
As we recommend using a non sulphate shampoo and conditioner we advise washing the hair with shampoo twice to ensure all build up is removed (sulphate is the ingredient that strips moisture from your hair). Avoid vigorous rubbing. Concentrate on shampooing the scalp and allow the shampoo to work through to the ends.
Lightly work conditioner though hair with your fingers from the tip to the mid lengths. You can even use your extension brush to apply the conditioner. Make sure the extensions are thoroughly rinsed. We recommend rinsing at least three times longer than you would your normal hair.
Once washed you should brush the hair in sections with a soft bristle brush beginning at the ends and working up to the roots. Make sure you repeat the brushing once in the morning and once in the evening on a daily basis and everytime you wash your hair.
If you don’t follow these instructions it will cause your extensions to have a build up of product leaving your extensions limp, lank and dull. It will also effect the lifespan of your extensions.
Tip: We recommend washing your hair whilst showering avoid tipping your hair over the bath or sink to avoid matting.

To dry your hair we recommend blast drying to remove excess moisture first. Once you feel the hair is nearly dry apply your oil and section off the bottom half of your hair and clip remaining hair up and away from the rest. You can use an extension or round brush with hair dryer pointed downwards. Blow dry each section whilst continuously brushing. This may seem a fiddly tedious task at first but will become easier and will prolong the style of your end result. Once dry you can now curl or straighten to your preference.
The amazing curl retention on Vanity hair extensions means you don’t need to use excess heat to style the hair, hence it lasts for longer. Always use a heat protector and oil when using curling irons or straighteners.
