Posted on 03 February 2015
Taking care of your Virgin Human Hair Extensions are crucial if you plan on wearing your hair extensions for longer than a month. Not only does taking care of your hair extensions improve the quality of life for the hair, it also helps you and your hair looking good for months to come. It is important that you treat the hair extensions like your real hair but that you also monitor the types of products that you put into your hair. So what is the proper way of caring for your Virgin Human Hair Extensions?
- Washing and Conditioning- It is important to wash and condition your Human Hair Extensions like they are your own. You do not need to wash them everyday, just wash and condition them when they start to look dull and dirty. During the washing process make sure you use a good quality shampoo and conditioner and wash and condition the hair from top to bottom. Steer clear from scrunching your human hair extensions to the top of your head after the washing process because it will tangle the hair. Use a good leave in conditioner that will make your hair extensions easier to manage between wash days and avoid products that contain alcohol to ensure that your virgin hair extensions stay beautiful month after month without drying out.
- Detangling- Detangling your hair is a important step in the hair care process. It important to detangle your hair once a day to prevent your hair from tangling and frizzing up. Whether you use a wig brush or wide tooth comb, it doesn’t matter as long as you are brushing your human hair extensions the correct way. Start detangling your hair at the bottom, the same way you would detangle your own and and work your way up. Make sure that you are gentle during the detangling process so that you don’t loosen any threading or cause breakage in your hair extensions. When you comb from the bottom up, not only are you detangling your hair in the best way possible, you are also preventing it from shedding and ripping hair from the weft.
- Drying- When you are trying to protect the longevity of your human hair extensions, it is important that you use heat in moderation. Granted you should be able to curl and blow dry your hair everyday if you wanted to, but understand that the hair may not last as long as it would if you let the hair air dry and flat ironed it twice a week. If you are focused on blow drying your hair, then you should put it on the lowest heat possible to reduce the possibility of shedding and breakage. Remember to use heat in moderation because you don’t want your human hair extensions to dry out.
- Protecting- While you are washing, conditioning, blow drying, and curling your hair, it is important you protect your hair as well. Make sure that you keep your hair moisturized with alcohol free products and if you do decide to use heat on it daily, use a heat protect serum that will protect the hair from drying out. Using natural oils such as coconut oil and virgin olive oil will preserve the hair and keep it moisturized and soft at the same time. You don’t want your human hair extensions to get brittle.
