How to take care of your virgin hair extensions
It is very important to take good care of your virgin hair extensions for expanding their life expectancy. Treat the hair weave just as if it was your own hair. Virgin hair need not be washed as frequently as our own hair; wash only when they start to look dull and lifeless. Use good quality shampoo and conditioning products. Wash and condition the hair in one direction, from top to bottom. Avoid washing hair upside down in the sink or scrunching on top of your head. Use shampoos and conditioners that hydrate and add moisture. Conditioning virgin hair is very important to keep it soft and manageable, so use a leave-in spray conditioner in between shampoos. Daily use of a leave- in spray conditioner is a must for curly weaves, especially on the ends. As much as possible, try to avoid heavy oils, crèmes, moose, gel and hairsprays as they will weigh down your weave and cause build up which can lead to tangling & odors! Be sure that your virgin hair products are alcohol free as alcohol is a drying agent. With proper care, virgin hair will stay soft and beautiful wash after wash.
Is it ok to blow dry, flat-Iron, tong or curl virgin hair extensions? You can absolutely treat virgin hair extension just as you would your own. Curl it, straighten it and most of all, enjoy it! Use heat in moderation as excessive heat dries out your hair and shortens its lifespan. For durability, it is advisable to buy the pattern you want directly and not change the existing hair pattern back and forth. If you prefer to wear your hair straight or wavy, then the wavy textures will be best for you since they offer the most versatility.
