Is Your Bond Ready to Contact Water?

You’d better avoid washing, swimming and even heavy sweating during this time. Your hair system bonding needs this period of time to completely work and cure.

When the hair is wet in the pool, it becomes very vulnerable especially when it is tangled. So before making your hair wet, please make sure to comb through your hair and gently remove any tangles. Better to braid it or wear a swim cap to keep it from tangling in the water. Also using leave-in conditioner can help the tangling condition.
