Virgin hair extensions might not be your natural hair, but you love wearing them. And even though they’re not part of your living body, they need to be maintained. So, for better luster and longevity, you have to properly take care of them.
That being said, here’s how to take care of your virgin hair extensions.
Detangling Your Virgin Hair Extensions
The initial procedure before shampooing your extensions is to make sure the hairs are tangle-free. It’s best to use a wide toothed comb or detangling brush to remove tangles. But, avoid using long strokes.
Instead, start with small sections. Comb or brush starting from the hair ends and work your way up. Also, never comb or brush your hair while it’s still wet. This can cause breakage and pull more hair out.
Shampoo and Condition
Properly shampooing and conditioning your hair extensions is crucial. We recommend shampooing at least once a week as per the texture and environmental conditions. It’s worth mentioning that if you have an active lifestyle (exercising daily), consider shampooing at least twice per week.
Perspiration can build up in both your natural hair and extensions. This will not only cause your hair to dry out, but also not smell fresh.
When shampooing your human hair extensions, use warm water and moisturizing shampoo. Our extensions are quality, but you need to do your part to ensure longevity and durability.
Sulfate-free shampoo and organic products are the best types. And for conditioners, look for products with natural oils like almond or coconut oils.
Your natural hair and scalp needs moisture. Using a deep conditioner twice a week or so ensures the health of your scalp. And as we know, a healthy scalp lends to healthy hair. In fact, argan oil is great for preventing frizz and it enhances your hairstyle.
Deep conditioning your extensions ensures they remain moisturized, soft, and nourished. We recommend to put your extensions in a shower cap to leave overnight. However, if they’re installed, wear the shower cap for 1 to 2 hours, then rinse. It’s best not to sleep in the shower cap and conditioner as it’ll make for a messy bed fellow.
