INDIQUE HAIR CARE GUIDE


Pre-Installation

At Indique, we are committed to providing you with quality 100% virgin hair. To ensure your full satisfaction, please follow this recommended hair care guide. Please review the pre-installation requirements below, then choose your Collection and texture for specific guidelines, tips, and maintenance.

Rinse the hair under warm water. It is important that you keep the plastic security band around the bundle during this process to avoid tangling. Then, run your fingers through the hair.

Set out to air dry. Once dry, the hair should be tangle and shed-free. If you detect any problems during this pre-installation process, please contact us immediately.

We stand behind the quality of our hair 100%. In the rare case that you experience any excessive matting, shedding or tangling within the first week due to a manufacturing issue, please contact us for further consultation. During the consultation we may recommend that the installation be removed and returned to the place of purchase for testing.

Installation Tips

When doing a full sew-in, professional stylists suggest folding the wefts rather than cutting individual tracks. This maintains the integrity of the extension, prevents shedding, and makes re-installation easier.

Machine Wefted Hair: When installing wefted extensions with a needle, it is recommended that you sew around the weft rather than through. Putting a needle through the weft will weaken the structure and cause shedding.

Bulk Hair: All Indique hair is cut from a single donor, cuticles intact, with all hairs facing the same direction from root to tip. Therefore, always pull hair from the top where it is tied with the rubber band. NEVER take hair from the bottom of the bundle. Taking strands from the bottom will cause the hair to be inverted and result in matting and tangling.

General Maintenance

Once you receive your Indique Virgin Hair Extensions:

  • We suggest that you have your stylist trim the ends, especially if you plan on doing a lot of heat styling. Hot tools can contribute to split ends, shortening the life of your extensions.
  • Shampoo and condition with Indique Hair Care Essentials weekly to maintain softness and manageability. Our products are sulfate free, moisturizing, and infused with French Argan Oil. The shampoo gently cleanses, replenishes vital moisture, and maximizes shine. The conditioner provides hydration without weighing down the hair.
  • It is suggested that you visit your stylist regularly to have your hair and extensions shampooed, especially when wearing a sewn-in installation. It is critical that hair is properly cleansed and dried.
  • Hair extensions should not be handled rigorously and should always be shampooed in a downward motion.
  • Keep styling products to a minimum to prevent weighing down the hair. Indique Hair Care Essentials French Argan Oil may be used as a deep conditioning treatment to maintain the smooth and lustrous texture of the hair. It also works as a heat protectant. Use a dime size before blow drying, flat ironing or curling.

Bounce Collection

Bounce is our chemical-free, steam process collection of virgin Indian hair. Due to the innovative steam curling process, we do not recommend straightening any texture in this collection that has a wave or curl pattern.

  • Handling the hair during the drying process can cause frizziness.
  • If a fuller look is desired, wait until hair is completely dry to manipulate.
  • During the initial shampoo and brushing, Organic Curl is prone to strand release. Strand release involves the detachment of loose hair during the steam curling process. This loose hair will separate from the curl-set during the initial shampoo and brushing. This is normal due to the manipulation of the cuticle during the steaming process.

Hysteria Collection

Indique's Hysteria collection of colored South East Asian hair extensions are lustrous, tangle free, and offered in a wide variety of rich and vibrant colors.

Tips:

  • Easy to flat iron or curl.
  • Hysteria has already undergone a special 1 to 2 day color process. Since the hair has already been color-treated, additional processing can compromise the integrity of the hair.
  • Use Indique Sulfate-free Shampoo and Conditioner to prevent color fading.
  • You may experience some light shedding with Hysteria. To help reduce this, have your stylist apply Indique Weft Sealer prior to installation.
  • Handling the hair during the drying process can cause frizziness. If a fuller look is desired, wait until hair is
    completely dry to manipulate.

Studio Collection

The revolution of hair extensions! This collection offers an array of innovative, quick and easy to apply pieces that allow you to change your look effortlessly without the commitment.

Studio Collection

  • Please refer to the specific texture for maintenance tips.
  • When shampooing and conditioning these pieces, bind together at the top with a rubber band.
  • Depending on the texture of your own hair, you may want to tease, flat twist, or braid to provide an anchor for the clips.
  • Due to the nature of this product and the clips that are attached, we do not recommend that you sleep with STUDIO pieces.

Keratique Collection

Keratique is virgin hair with patented keratin pre-bonded onto the hair. This hair is layered and provides a natural look for individuals looking for blended volume, color and length.

Keratique Collection

Tips:

  • Straightens easily with flat iron.
  • Texture allows for long-lasting curls.
  • Returns to its original wave pattern after every shampoo and condition.
  • Use Indique Sulfate-free Shampoo and Conditioner to prevent breaking down keratin bonds.
  • To remove Keratique bonds from your hair (applied using hot fusion or shrinkable tubing techniques), we suggest using Indique Keratique Bond Remover. Shampoo and deep condition your natural hair immediately after removing Keratique tips to avoid drying out your hair.

Closures & Frontals

Closures and Frontals have a lace base, which allows for a realistic look. Please refrain from excessive tugging, scratching, or pulling on the hair as strands of hair may be released from the base.

Closures & Frontals

Tips:

  • Applying shampoo or conditioner near the base of your unit may cause the delicate workmanship to unravel.

 

Repair:

  • If you are experiencing balding or thin areas in your Frontal
 or Closure, please seek a professional who specializes in re-ventilation.
  • Re-ventilation is a process that involves adding more hair to balding or thin areas.
  • A specialist can also repair tears in the lace, add hair, or even replace lace where it has been worn out.
