Tail Care
1. Tail Source tail extensions are 100% natural horsehair and should be cared for properly to prolong their life
2. We recommend the first time you use your tail extension to wash and blow dry or allow to air dry. Blowing you’re your extension will give it a full look. To keep a natural sheen add a little baby oil every other washing to help keep hair in natural condition.










3. We recommend that after use you wash with a non abrasive low ph shampoo and conditioner.
4. Avoid completely submersing your tail extension in water or soaking it in water for long periods of time. Over soaking your tail extension can cause water and moisture to rot tail hairs causing hairs to break and fall out.
5. Gently brush your tail extension or use your fingers to remove knots extra care should be taken for natural horsehair finger brushing is the best way.
6. When your tail extension is not in use we recommend storage in a tail sleeve or tail carrier bag to prevent the damaged of your investment.
