Hair Care Tips
The care that you give your hair is going to determine the longevity of the hair that you receive. We always suggest that you treat this hair as if it is your real natural hair and use the same products that you would use on yourself. This will reduce the chance that your hair will be dry, tangled, and possibly damaged. It is important to keep in mind that your hair receives nutrients constantly as it grows from your scalp. Once cut, the nutrient supply that the hair normally receives is no longer available. This is why it is very important that you take very good care of your hair from the moment you wake up until you fall asleep. Here are some suggestions and tips that you may use to help guide you in better methods of taking care of your bundles.
- Prior to installation, co-wash the hair. Do not scrunch the hair when washing the hair. Instead, use your fingers to gently comb through the hair and rinse with cool water.
- Condition your hair with a moisturizing conditioner and rinse with cool water at least once a week.
- Detangle the hair wet with a wide tooth comb or paddle brush. Start from the ends and work your way to the top. For curly textures, add a leave-in conditioner to provide slip and make it easier to detangle.
- When applying oils to the hair, do not use an excessive amount. Trust us, a dime size really IS all you need.
- If applying heat, be sure to use heat protectant sprays or serums to prevent the least amount of damage to the hair.
- Scrunching curly or wavy textures when wet will enhance the curls seen.
- Before bed, braid the hair. You may do one braid or two braids or whatever you feel comfortable with. After braiding, cover the edges with a satin scarf and place a bonnet over top. The braids help reduce matting and even provide waves.
- A wide tooth comb or paddle brush can be used in the morning once the braids are undone. Work from the ends of the hair to the top to decrease the amount of tangling and shedding. For curly hair, wetting the hair prior to detangling is best.
- If heat is applied to wavy or curly hair, to restore the pattern co-wash the hair and rinse with cool water. Keep in mind that once heat is applied to these textures, the hair may not return back to its complete curly or wavy texture.
