HOLIDAY / SWIMMING AFTERCARE

GOING ON HOLIDAY WEARING EXTENSIONS 
Going abroad requires additional aftercare.  
Excessive sun and heat exposure. sea salt, chlorinated pools and minerals in  different waters  all effect our natural hair and it is exactly the same for your hair extensions. All these factors may shorten the lifespan of your extensions, cause them to become dry or change the colour.

The following guidelines are designed to prevent any adverse effect on your extensions (and also your natural hair) 
We aim to make our clients fully understand what may happen and why. We offer the best holiday aftercare products and teach the correct aftercare procedures to make wearing your extensions whilst on holiday as simple, easy and trouble free as possible. 

The most important factor to take in to account are the types of water your hair will come into contact with whilst holidaying and the effects of *OXIDATION.

{*An Oxidizer and the term oxidation is derived from the observation that almost all elements react with oxygen to form compounds called "oxides." A typical example of oxidation is the corrosion or rusting of iron. Oxidation put simply is the "addition of oxygen." Anything that adds oxygen (eg, water, sun or air) to something else (in this case, your hair is called an "oxidizer."
In moderate amounts, oxidizers can cause loss or fading of hair colour. Great amounts of oxidizers can break down and damage hair, eventually causing it to deteriorate.}

Water/Sun/Air: Oxygen in the air and water coupled with heat and light from the sun cause accelerated oxidation of the hair. The more exposure to the outdoors, the greater the amount of oxidation. For example, colour treated hair fades faster on people with greater exposure to the outdoors, and especially during the summer or going on holiday to sunny climates.


The water you will be washing your hair with is likely to be completely different than the standard filtration systems in our homes. It may contain naturally occurring minerals which when oxidised can have an adverse effect on the hair. These are the most common culprits:

Copper: This mineral bonds strongly to the hair and originates either from underground water, particles from copper water pipes, or most commonly, copper sulfates added to pool and drinking water to control algae growth. Oxidized copper discolors light hair, producing a green tint, and causes dark hair to tint darker. It can weigh hair down.
(Our micro rings, Mini Locks & Ultra Locks are made of copper coated in paint. When these are regulary left in a damp environment, due to poor aftercare, a green residue begins to form on the lock or ring. This is a perfect physical example of Oxidation as the copper is exposed to moisture for a prolonged period of time, once in contact with the air oxidation begins to occur. Oxidation of copper produces 'Verdigris' which can be seen all over The Statue of Liberty!)

Iron: Found usually in well water in areas that have concentrations of iron in the ground. Concentrations of iron will slowly cause hair to tint darker, add weight to the hair, and even prevent proper chemical processing. Heavy amounts of iron will tint light-coloured hair orange and cause dark hair to become darker with red highlights. Oxidized iron actually functions as an oxidizer in hair in much the same way that mild peroxide attacks the hair. It may cause an excessive dry feeling in the hair and may actually change the textural appearance of the hair.

Magnesium: Magnesium is abundant in the soil and is very much a part of the mineral complex associated with hard water. Like calcium, magnesium attaches to the hair, leaving it feeling dry and weighted down.

Silica: Sand-like substance found in areas of volcanic or desert-like areas. It is usually bound to calcium or magnesium and forms very hard, virtually insoluble deposits on surfaces. Water borne silica can build up on the hair, causing the same effect as calcium - dryness, dandruff, weight, and hair loss.

Ironised water is found in old filtration systems and salt / sodium is added as water softeners. Even using bottled water, when you check the label you will be amazed that most have salt content!  (Salt has a drying effect on the hair)

Minerals enter the water either by ground water or surface water.
Ground water comes from under the ground. Both domestic and community wells derive their water from rain passing through aquifers, which are layers of minerals.
The acidity (pH below 7.0) of the rain increases the dissolving effect of minerals; therefore, these dissolved solids are found in the water when pumped above ground and used in bathing.
Surface water comes from rivers or lakes, usually containing fewer minerals because the water has not filtered down through the mineral layers. Unfortunately, increasing populations are polluting the water, which causes additional bacterial growth. This growth is controlled at treatment facilities by adding chlorine to kill bacteria, and then adding lime (a calcium compound) to help control chlorine levels.

This is the science behind how minerals attach to the hair -  The minerals affecting the hair are charged positive. This attachment creates a "wall" of minerals on the protein. Minerals found in water at home are continuously exposed to the hair during bathing. Since hot or warm water is usually selected to wash hair, the cuticle is opened, allowing positively charged elements, such as minerals, to get inside the cuticle and attach to the protein.

Chlorine and Bromine (which is used like chlorine)  is present in swimming pools (along with other chemical additives) Hot Tubs, Spas and Jacuzzi's
Chlorine is added to disinfect and purify drinking water to kill bacteria. It is also used as an active bleach to remove pigment in colour. This is added to water which already contains other natural minerals.
Chlorine is commonly known to turn natural hair green and this is no different with extension hair. Not only can chlorine discolour hair, it will damage the cuticle and internal proteins and create an oxidizing effect on elements in the hair. Active chlorine can leave hair feeling gummy when wet, and straw-like when dry. Chlorine can alter the electrical charge on minerals in the hair, causing them to bond stronger to the hair, and may even change the color of certain minerals. The highly charged mineral may, in turn, damage and/or discolour the hair. Regular swimmers will notice the damage chlorine can cause by making the hair dry and brittle.

Desalinated water is used in many places around the world but is most common in the Middle East and The Arabian Gulf. (Saudi Arabia, Dubai, United Arab Emirates etc).  
Desalination is the procedure of eliminating salt from seawater to produce drinking water. Increasing populations are contaminating the oceans and this causes additional bacterial growth. The plants that purify the water must add higher levels of chlorine to kill the bacteria and then add lime (which is a calcium compound) to assist in controlling the chlorine levels!   
(Calcium is also the mineral in most of the water in the United States)
Mineralised calcium is also found naturally in the ground, especially where limestone is present. 

Three ways calcium affects hair:
  1. Calcium builds up on the hair, leaving the hair feeling dry and weighted down.
  2. Calcium salts build up on the scalp and cause flaking, often know as dandruff. These deposits are much like the "bathtub ring" associated with hard water and bath soap.
  3. Calcium "build-up" can clog the hair at the mouth of the follicle, causing the hair to break off, and may coat the scalp, blocking further hair growth.

Sea water which contains very high levels of natural salts can have a very drying effect on the hair (both natural and extensions)

Finally in hotter climates you will sweat! Sweat contains natural sodium which is excreted from the body. Heavy sweating can cause the scalp to remain constantly damp. This combined with the natural body salt can have an adverse effect on the bonds of some types of extensions causing them to soften and break down. Breakdown of the bonds will lead to extension loss and shedding. 

So now you have a better understanding of the water content and potential effects we are going to throw in another chemical ingredient which plays a major part in colour change....

AVOBENZONE. (Also known as Methoxphenyl, Butylphenylpropane, Butylmethoxydibenzolmethane, Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Parsol1789, Milestab1789, Eusolex9020, Escalol517, NeoHelipan357, Dibenzoylmethane)
This is an ingredient that is used in most sunscreen products for its UVA absorbtion.   This is the ingredient in the cream that discolours your clothes and the same can happen when it comes into contact with the hair.  Combine this by coming into contact with any of the minerals mentioned above. A chemical reaction can occur and this is what causes the pinky / orange colour which occasionally happens to your hair.
*Heat can also accelerate the chemical reaction.

Not only is Avobenzone found in suncream it is also present in many other products too such as moisturisers, powders, foundations, concealers, lip balm, sun protection shampoos, conditioners and sprays.  This explains why colour change may only occur in patchy areas of the hair because of the nature and way the hair may have come into contact with the Avobenzone.

Of course we would never dream of telling you not to use sunscreen and advise you to continue doing so. There are Avobenzone free sunscreens on the market and these are preferable, although you cant escape from coming into contact with it as Im sure you have noticed the oily sunscreen residues that float on the surface of the swimming pool.

What you can do is use the products we recommend to prevent this from happening and to take with you to rectify, should colour change occur. 

*Please note that colour change MAY happen - it does not happen to every client who goes on holiday but Forewarned is Forearmed!

Finally the sun can alter the colour of your natural hair and the same can happen to your extension hair. Sun over exposure may also cause your hair to become dry  so we recommend either Remi Cachet Miracle Mist or Abigail Nicholls Precious Protein Spray through the mid lengths and ends to help combat the drying effects of the sun and wear a sunhat for added protection.
Both can be sprayed on damp or dry hair AVOIDING the root area and attachments.

We recommend tying hair into a low plait and pin your plait up out of the way whilst taking a dip. This will keep your hair contained neatly preventing any matting and tangling.
Our blonde clients are recommended to use the Remi Cachet Hair Oil which is the highest grade Argan Oil but is CLEAR in colour as opposed to other Argon / Moroccan Oils which are orange in colour. The coloured oils combined with the heat and sun exposure  can give the blonde extensions an unwanted orange brassy tone.

At the end of each day if your hair has come into contact with sea or pool water shampoo and condition thoroughly using the Malibu C Hard Water Wellness range shown below.

  • After shampooing and conditioning, whilst the extensions are damp spray Remi Cachet Miracle Mist or Abigail Nicholls Precious Protein Spray avoiding the root and attachment areas.
  • Brush thoroughly using your extension brush starting at the ends and working up to the root area and attachments
  • Apply Remi Cachet Hair Oil through the mid lengths & ends of your extensions
  • Blow dry and style as normal
  • If leaving to dry naturally blow dry the root / bonded attachment area thoroughly and the rest to air dry
  • DO NOT TIE UP WHILST WET / DAMP AND LEAVE to dry as this will lead to root matting and bonds / keratin tips to soften or the rings / locks to form a green coating causing the painted coating to peel away exposing the bare metal (Copper) making them harder to disguise
  • Once a week use the Malibu C Hardwater Wellness Remedy
  • Once a week use the Malibu C Miracle Repair Remedy


Finally - brush, brush brush! Your hair can become a bit more tangly and knotty due to being exposed to all previous mentioned factors. Be regular with your brushing paying particular attention in the attachment areas.  Matting is the most commonly reported problem post holiday and is caused by poor aftercare. 

So here is a list of our recommend ESSENTIAL Holiday Hair Care Products which are stocked in our salon.
