Let’s Talk Hair Care!
Weaves and hair extensions are popular because they allow women to have longer and thicker looking hair. Virgin Brazilian hair extensions are beautiful and natural looking as well as smooth and silky so that you look and feel wonderful. You should take care of your hair extensions so that they last long and do not damage your hair. There are some things that you can do at home to take care of your hair extensions so that you do not have to go to the salon every time which can be time consuming and expensive.
How To Care For Brazilian Hair Extensions
The first thing to do is have the weave applied professionally so that it is easy to care for and looks good. If it is not applied as it should, it may come out earlier than it should or it will strain your own hair causing excessive damage and breakage. The weave should not be too tight as this may damage your natural hair and scalp which will lead to pain and damage.
It should also not be attached loosely as then it may also cause your hair to break and it will not last long as it may look untidy after a very short period of time. This will make it expensive for you. You should also attach hair extensions according to your hair type. If your hair is very light, do not use too many extensions as these will break your natural hair if they are too heavy for it.
Cleaning Virgin Brazilian Hair Extensions
If you have virgin Brazilian hair extensions, you need to clean your scalp and the extensions as well. If you have an oily scalp, it is best to use powder shampoo because it is able to absorb the oil as well as clean your scalp and extensions. You can wash your hair weekly with a mild shampoo starting with the scalp down to the hair edges. Work slowly so that you do not tangle the hair extensions anymore than you have to.
After washing use a light conditioner to keep the hair extensions smooth and silky. It is best to do a deep conditioning at least once a month. However, if your hair or the extensions have been colored or are dry then do a deep conditioning treatment every two weeks so that the extensions are smooth and silky. If they dry out too much then they will break much easier and this can also damage your own hair.
Ensure that you rinse out the shampoo and conditioner thoroughly so that there is no product build-up which will negatively impact your scalp. Dry your hair using a thick towel. Do not rub but rather pat dry. If you have to use a dryer, do so when you absolutely have to as frequent heat will destroy virgin Brazilian hair extensions. Use a wide toothed comb or a weave brush to carefully comb and style your hair extensions. Work slowly from section to section to avoid tugging or pulling which may lead to breakage. If the extensions or your scalp is dry, apply a light oil or moisturize your scalp as you comb it out.
