Understanding Different Hair Types

Human Hair

Being natural, real and 100% Human Hair means it is the closest match you can get to your own hair. Our 100% Human Hair is purchased from suppliers that follow stringent ethical codes. They collect hair in one of two ways - “Temple Hair” or “Brushed & Fallen Hair”.

Temple Hair

The first of these comes from donors at temples in India. By tradition, there are certain Hindu ceremonies where worshippers cut off their hair. The hair is plaited before being cut and tied at both ends afterwards to hair running in a single cuticle direction (cutical aligned).

Brushed / Fallen Hair

Gathered by farmers, individual households have collection baskets in which they collect strands of naturally fallen hair. Collecting hair in this way omits the need for donors to cut all their hair off in one go, plus it provides an extra source of income for poorer households in developing countries.

Factories will sort, cleanse, colour and condition hair as required before creating the final product.

Hair Care

We recommend that our hair extensions are maintained using only the AMERICAN DREAM Hair Care product ranges.

Our exclusive range of specially formulated products such as our low pH shampoos and conditioning treatments as well as digital appliances incorporating Ionic technologies will ensure that hair is expertly cared for.

Pure Hair Extensions:

WASHING

All hair types – 1. Extensions should be washed as infrequently as possible for best durability and to prevent damage to the hair’s protective silicone coating. AMERICAN DREAM recommends washing once a week with its low pH Soft and Silky or Manhattan range shampoos. 2. Lather shampoo in your hands then gently apply to the hair, taking care not to massage vigorously in particular around the bonds/attachment points. 3. Rinse gently but thoroughly with lukewarm water. 4. Apply our Soft and Silky Conditioner or our Manhattan Conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends, not on the bonds or the scalp. 5. Rinse gently but thoroughly with lukewarm water.

STYLING

Silky Straight – 1. Brush or comb using our lonic Brush or Comb specially designed for hair extensions. 2. Leave to dry naturally or blow dry using a mid-heat. 3. To keep your extensions looking new and glossy every day, use our Soft and Silky Spray to detangle and add shine.

Wavy – 1. Push hair upwards to reform the curl. 2. Leave to dry naturally or for extra volume and speed in drying use a diffuser. Use a wide tooth comb to style. 3. To keep your extensions looking new and glossy every day, use our Soft and Silky Spray to detangle and add shine.

Curly – 1. Push hair upwards to reform the curl. 2. Leave to dry naturally or for extra volume and speed in drying use a diffuser. Use a wide tooth comb to style. 3. For a deep wave effect, set the body wave in size 40mm rollers and dry under hood dryer. When dry remove all rollers and brush into deep waves. 4. To keep your extensions looking new and glossy every day, use our Soft and Silky Spray to detangle and add shine.

SLEEPING

Wavy and Curly - 1 & 2. As above. 3. Upon waking spritz the hair with water to dampen and push hair upwards to reform curl.

SWIMMING (Pool and Sea)

All hair types – 1. We do not recommend swimming with hair extensions as chlorine and sea water can damage the hair’s silicone coating. Note: Curly or Wavy hair extensions can lose their style after swimming.

SAUNA & STEAM ROOM

All hair types – 1. Tie or braid hair into one loose large braid at the back of the neck, do not wrap in a towel. 2. After sauna keep head out of the shower to prevent bonds from slipping. 3. Leave to dry and cool down naturally. 4. Wash and style as above.

SUNBATHING

All hair types – 1. Tie or braid hair back. 2. To prevent bonds from slipping, wait for hair to cool before letting the hair down. 3. Wash and style hair as above.
