How to care for your Virgin Hair extensions should certainly be an important subject on your mind - after all, you just spent your money acquiring your new luscious locks.
Once the natural hair is cut from the donor, it stops receiving the much needed nutrients that nourish and keep the hair soft, shiny & tangle-free. Therefore, it's vitally important to maintain and treat your natural Virgin hair extensions with the appropriate products that will restore/maintain its natural state.
Co-Wash: When you receive your Virgin Hair, substitute the shampoo for conditioner. Condition your hair in a downward motion, working the product from the top of the weft down in one motion. Rinse well, air dry and style. This is really great for curly styles as well.
Recommended Maintenance Regime
Step 1: Detangle your hair
This is a very important step prior to shampooing your hair.
Please ensure that your hair is free of tangles or snares. Using a wide tooth or a detangling brush, gently comb out your hair extensions. Always comb or brush hair from the bottom up, small sections at a time. Remember to be careful, treat your extensions with love and they will last longer.
Step 2: Shampoo/Condition
Shampoo your hair with lukewarm water not hot water. Shampoo your hair more often if you have increased perspiration or have been in a dusty environment. Curly textures require frequent co-washes or leave-in conditioners to look its best. Always cleanse your hair extensions with a moisturizing shampoo. Remember to wash your hair in a downward motion, working shampoo from the top of the weft down. Do not massage or rub the hair against itself, this will cause it to tangle. Condition your hair with a moisturizing conditioner. Wait at least 10 - 30 minutes, then rinse out conditioner thoroughly.
Step 3: Styling
We strongly recommend the use of a de-tangling brush to comb your hair extensions every day so that it does not develop tangles especially in the nape area. Air dry hair or set the hair, while wet, on rollers for big bouncy soft curls.
Heat is your hair biggest enemy. The more you use on it, the shorter the life span of your hair. Use heat in moderation. Do not use high temperatures. High temperatures can damage the hair, including permanently altering the hair texture. Use styling products that are alcohol free.
To keep you hair in tip top shape, use a deep conditioner or hot oil treatment on your natural hair as well as your extensions twice a month. More or less, depending on the hair's need. This is very important if you have chemically treated the hair or use irons.
Weft Extensions Installation
One key aspect of caring for your weft extensions is the installation method. To ensure that your weft extensions do not shed after installation, we strongly recommend that you:
• Do not put a needle through the wefts or pierce the wefts. If installing a sew-in weave, sew in the wefts by looping and tying the weave thread under and over the weft in a blanket stitch method
• Do not split the wefts
• Do not cut the wefts. Avoid cutting the wefts. If you have to cut the wefts, seal each cut weft end.
Sleep: Put your hair "up" at night. Plait or pin curl your hair before going to sleep. This is important in preventing tangles. Sleep with a satin cap or on a satin covered pillow. Never sleep with loose wet hair, for it may tangle while you sleep.
With proper care and also using the appropriate products will ensure that your hair extensions keep its luster and last for a long time. We recommend you use mild shampoos & conditioners; preferably sulfate-free and silicon free hair care products.
Using the wrong maintenance products on your hair extensions will result in dry, dull, tangled, damaged and unmanageable hair extensions.
