When you invest in good, premium quality human hair, one of the greatest benefits to you is that the hair can last months longer than packaged hair. It is important to take good care of your human hair to help it fulfil its lifespan.
Daily care & styling:
- When brushing the hair start from the ends and work your way up. Do not brush directly on the weft or tug at the hair as this will cause damage and unnatural shedding.
- It is not necessary to add excessive “product” to Indian hair. Adding too much product will clog down the hair and make it look greasy. Do however add moisture using light serums and leave in conditioning sprays. You also need to look after your scalp and any of your own hair that has been left out of the weave. Your natural hair will become dehydrated and brittle if it is not conditioned and moisturised on a regular basis. Keep the natural hair line and scalp hydrated by applying a good amount of moisturising crème with natural ingredients.
- Making waves: Spray on water, or a diluted formula of water and leave-in moisturising conditioner to bring out the natural waves in our Indian hair (will be less apparent in hair advertised as “straight”). The best results are achieved when you saturate the entire head, apply a light serum, and scrunch in an upward motion to encourage wave formation. You can also use a holding mousse for more defined curls. Allow your hair to air dry, or use a hair diffusing tool to finish.
- You can flat-iron, crimp and curl our Indian hair for a range of versatile looks. Before you apply heat to the hair use an alcohol free, non drying protective spray to shield against heat damage.
- Before sleeping ensure that you comb through your hair thoroughly and detangle where necessary. This is especially important when wearing thick textured curly hair. Section out hair into two to four partings, plait loosely and tie down with a silk scarf. This will help lock in natural oils, prevent hairline breakage and preserve your style.
- Cleanse your hair every 7-14 days. Use a gentle cleansing and moisturising shampoo and always follow with a deep conditioner. We recommend you use products made from natural ingredients as this will help to maintain the virgin qualities of the hair.
- DO NOT massage shampoo directly into the scalp as this will cause the tracks to loosen and may induce tangling at the weft. Instead gently rub shampoo/conditioner through the hair in a downward motion. Cleanse the scalp by gently rubbing in-between the tracks.
- It is important to make sure your hair is thoroughly dried after washing. Check the tracks to be sure there is no excess dampness. When hair is left damp, it can cause unwanted odour.
