Bonding Material

Racoon's unique bonding formula has been specifically designed for hair extensions containing orange peel and pine kernel extracts. It provides a perfect balance between strength, durability and ease of removal.

This single handed system enables you to personalise each individual bond to create long lasting, secure, discrete extensions. The bonds remain unaffected by daily styling and maintenance. When the extensions are ready to be removed and reapplied (in most cases after 12-16 weeks) the removal is simple, instantaneous with no fuss with zero damage to the hair.

Looking After Your Extensions

Using your Racoon Brush

The Racoon brush is specifically designed for hair extensions, with air-cushioned rubber pad for gentle control, allowing you to brush your extensions ends to roots with ease.

Never brush the hair when it is wet and do not use a fine tooth comb.

Start at the ends of the hair and work your way upwards, holding each section just above where you are brushing. When you get close to the roots put your hand over the bonds to support them.

After shampooing or whenever the hair is wet, only use a wide tooth comb to remove tangles; do not use a brush.

Before Shampooing your Hair

For the first shampoo you must return to the salon, it is vital that this is done by your Racoon specialist. This way you will learn the correct techniques that are essential for the care and maintenance of your hair extensions.

The following information will provide you with helpful advice to assist you in maintaining your hair with total confidence.

Shampooing

Shampooing a full or partial head of extensions may take longer. Take your time and do not rush - you may be surprised by the extra weight at first.

Separate the bonds and ease out any tangles using the Racoon brush

Wet the hair - ideally in the shower

Apply recommended Shampoo to wet hair

Gently massage the scalp with your fingertips, using a light up and down motion (avoid circular motions as these can cause tangles or matting)

Rinse thoroughly, loosening the hair at the roots ensuring all product is removed and repeat if necessary.

Conditioning

Once you have shampooed the scalp area gently squeeze excess moisture from hair.

Apply recommended Conditioner to mid-lengths and ends
Using your fingers gently smooth the conditioner through, use a wide tooth comb to help remove tangles
Rinse thoroughly
Warning - Only use the recommended products should be used on Racoon hair as using other products, especially conditioners enriched with protein, can result in matting.

Leave-in Conditioner

Gently pat hair dry, do not rub or use any vigorous motion

Apply recommended leave-in moisturiser to mid lengths and ends, to maintain lustre and bounce. (Ask your stylist for ideal amount to apply)

Separate the hair into sections and using a wide tooth comb to distribute product.

Vigorous brushing or using a fine comb when your hair is wet will cause tension on the extension hair resulting in tangling and matting. Only use a wide tooth comb or your fingers to remove tangles.

After Shampooing and Conditioning

Drying and Styling

Lightly apply recommended Thermal Defence to mid-lengths and ends.

Remove moisture from the scalp area around the bonds.

If blow drying separate hair into sections.

Be gentle - excessive tension can cause loss of hair extensions. Always support the bonds with your hand

Avoid getting styling products on and under the bonds

To prevent damage and frizziness, apply recommended Serum to mid-lengths and ends when the hair is dry.

Curling tongs and straightening irons can be used on the natural hair, but avoid applying excessive heat to the bonds themselves as they may soften and distort

Only use thermostatically controlled equipment

Daily

At least once a day you will need to separate your extensions. Starting at the roots, make sure that each bond is separated from the ones next to it, then work your way down the hair. After approximately 4 weeks or so, as the hair grows down, natural matting will occur. This is where several bonds will begin locking together if they are not separated daily.

Sleeping

To prevent your hair from matting while you sleep, we suggest that you tie your hair in a low, loose plait or ponytail. Avoid using uncovered elastic bands as this will matt the hair. We recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase as the hair glides over the silk without tangling.

Beyond the Day to Day

Monthly maintenance

We recommend that you return to your Racoon stylist a minimum of once a month for a maintenance visit. Some of the bonds may need removing and replacing, and new bonds may need to be added. This "monthly rotation" is a method preferred by most clients and stylists as it means you can carry on wearing your extensions for longer.

Colouring

The great thing about Racoon Hair Extensions is that you can continue to colour your natural hair as normal. We do not recommend any colour changes to your hair extensions as certain colour products can damage extension hair. Discuss this with your Racoon stylist for professional advice.

Hair on Holiday

Your extensions need to be applied at least two weeks before you go away so you can get used to looking after them. Sea, sun and chlorine can leave extensions looking dull, tangled and dry, so it is vital that you apply recommended leave-in moisturiser. We recommend applying this at least twice daily.

Swimming

We strongly advise that you place a swimming cap on your head to protect your hair extensions from getting wet. Swimming can matt the hair. Long hair can be worn in high bun, tied back or plaited. Secure the hair with several scrunchies - do not use uncovered elastic bands as these will tangle in the hair.

Sun Exposure

Just like your skin and your natural hair, extensions will need protection from the sun. You're your leave in moisturiser with you and apply it to the mid-lengths and ends, avoiding the bonds. A guideline is to use it as often as you apply your skin sunscreen. Wearing a hat will also prevent your hair from drying out.

Removing your Extensions

Racoon's unique bond formula has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the hair extension industry. The unique formula contains a blend of synthetic polymers with orange peel and pine kernel extract, providing the perfect balance between strength, durability and ease of removal.

If maintained correctly, your extensions should last for approximately three months (varies due to natural hair growth). After this time the bonds will have "grown down" sufficiently for the extensions to require removal and reapplication.

Well maintained extension hair can be reapplied, although the bonds and ends will need trimming so you will lose some length. Natural shedding will also occur so you may need to buy a little extra hair to maintain the look you require.

If you plan to have your extensions reapplied on a regular basis, it would make sense that you visit your Racoon stylist to order some additional hair for "top up" purposes, or to increase length. This should be done before the removal to allow time for new hair to be ordered and delivered.
