Mink Haircare Tips

Here are just a few tips on daily hair care to keep your GRADE 9A Mink Brazilian extensions looking healthy, manageable and re-usable; because without proper maintenance it wont last.


Before you install your bundles I strongly suggest that you shampoo them 2x, condition 1x  for the best results. When you rinse out the conditioner; rinse until there are no suds left. Rinsing the conditioner out is one of the most important steps. If you do not rinse it well, any residue or traces of product left in the hair will result in STIFF and DULL hair...then... Let your bundles (hangdry) or Lay flat to air dry. Now you are ready to install.


 Use sulfate FREE shampoo and conditioner (products that contain sulfate are very damaging and extremely drying to the hair.)


 Use moisturizing and hydrating products.


 Use a shampoo with oil In it such as "Argan oil" "Moroccan oil" "keratin oil".


 Treat this hair like your own hair. Use good quality shampoo and conditioning products. Conditioning your hair is very important to keep it soft and manageable, we recommend using a deep conditioner on your virgin hair once per week. but avoid using oil or heavy styling products.

Before Going to Bed

We advise that you comb your hair every morning. Gently brush your hair starting from the ends and work your way up towards your scalp. Starting from the ends keeps the pressure off the weft area and is a good way to maintain the longevity of the extensions.

Gently brush hair to remove all tangles. Braid your hair into a couple of big braids, wrap your hair, or tie your hair into a ponytail; then cover with a the MINK hair cap as seen in this picture or any satin scarf/bonnet or use a silk pillow case. You must NEVER sleep on wet hair. Sleeping on wet hair is known to matte hair and makes it very difficult to keep the hair the way you want. Just make sure your hair is completely dry before you go to sleep and you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

Coloring Tips

If you are not familiar with coloring hair please take extensions to a professional colorist!! Mink Brazilian is a GREAT investment, you don't want to ruin the hair by over processing It with bleaches and dyes. Always let a licensed professional to color your bundles even if it is as simple as applying a black semi-permanent rinse. Don't do it yourself.

Want your hair Jet black? Use Just 5 (natural jet black). This can be found at most beauty supply stores or on amazon.

Curly/Wavy Maintenance

The "Deepwave" texture

For best results: Co-wash the Mink Brazilian (Deepwave) texture with cool water. Co-washing is a method to wash hair without using shampoo and washing with conditioner. When co-washing your hair you should use a cleansing conditioner to wash the hair. Rinse the hair with cool water. Lay it flat to air dry and then install. This method will keep the curl pattern nice and tight. Hot or warm water will loosen the curl pattern

in the "Tight Curly" textures.

It's mandatory that you apply a curl defining/curl control cream while the hair is wet. This way it will stop the hair from frizzing, getting really big & poofy and lock in the wave or curl in the hair. It will give the hair a nice, soft and tamed wet look while it dries. Most people think that the curly hair is low maintenance but it actually require the most up keep and it need to be wet EVERY SINGLE DAY so you can apply the curl define crème.

Remember the more heat that you use the harder it is to retract hair back to the natural curl or wave pattern.
