How to Care
If you're new to virgin hair we always recommend going with an easy and manageable style such as Body Wave or straight. Styles such as Curly, Kinky Curly, Deep Wave, Crazy Curly, and natural wave tend to cause a little trouble as a little shedding and tangling which is normal may occur more when these textures are neglected.
Washing your hair is very important!! This is virgin hair and should be treated and cared for just as your hair. You should wash your hair every two weeks or when needed.
Wash and Conditioning A Straight Hair Weave
1.) Take a wide width comb and gently comb through the weave to loosen any knots or tangles
2.) Get a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
3.) Wash the weave starting from top to bottom by gently massaging the shampoo into the weave
4.) Don’t neglect your real hair underneath the weave! Be sure to wash and condition your hair underneath. You can easily do this by mixing some shampoo into a cup or even better an applicator bottle, with water and then pouring the mixture directly into the braids/hair underneath (between the tracks) and rinse well. Follow up with a conditioner in another applicator mixed with water and conditioner as well. Rinse the conditioner throughout.
5.) Next condition the weave and leave the conditioner sitting on the weave for at least 3 minutes. This allows the conditioning agents to go to work and soften the hair. Rinse out the conditioner thoroughly.
6.) Don’t forget to wash and condition your “leave out” section of real hair if you have it on the very top of your head.
7.) After you step out of the shower gently towel dry the hair by blotting it. To blot, you will take the towel and hang it in your hands and gently close your hands into a section of your hair and gently press your hands together then open and move your hands down a few inches on the same section of hair and press again. Do this down the section of hair.
Cold Wash – For A Wavy Or Curly Weave
This method utilizes only a conditioner and no shampoo. This is also done by washing your hair in a sink and you use cold water.
1.) First you will wet the hair. Do not comb dry wavy or curly black hair weaves since this will only cause frizz and a matted mess.
2.) Apply a moisturizing conditioner and comb through the weave using a wide tooth comb. Start by holding the ends of your hair and combing the ends first while working your way up a section of hair. This helps loosen up any tangles.
3.) Rinse the hair with cold water
4.) Towel dry the hair and scrunch the hair using a towel to remove excess water. This also prevents frizz and tangles.
5.) Add a curling cream. Use a dollop of the cream and run it through the weave using your fingers.
6.) Scrunch the hair by cupping the ends of your hair in your hand and push your hand and the hair ends up towards your scalp. Let the hair air dry.
Virgin hair (especially curly hair) is very high maintenance. But if you do it right, the hair can last long enough even you wear it very often.
