How To Care For Your Virgin Hair Extensions?

Brazilian, Peruvian or some Caucasian type of hair are the talk of town for women who love weaves. They could be expensive but unlike the synthetic weaves, Brazilian Hair Bundles can be used over and over again. It gives the most natural looking finish and can be treated and styled just like a natural head of hair - because it too is natural.

Below are tips to help your Brazilian Hair last and look as great as when you bought it:

The products used on the Hair Bundles on a daily basis and accumulation of dust causes build up that needs to be removed regularly. Use gentle shampoos that are sulfate-free or diluted with water. Shampoos with sulfate can deteriorate the hair extension bonds. Massage gently to avoid damage and tangling.

Regular conditioning is necessary. With conditioner, the hair is revived and its suppleness restored. It also prevents the hair from frizzing and relieves tangling. Remember, however, to keep conditioner away from the extension bonds as much as possible because they can loosen the bonds.

Never cut the wefts:
Some hairdressers prefer cutting the wefts so that the extension covers more surface area. This increases shedding of the extension since it leaves it weaker.

Just like with your real hair, avoid heat tools. If you must use them, stick to ionic irons and hair dryers. Ensure the heat does not get to the bonds or you risk irreparable melting.

The most ideal is to brush your hair at least twice a day. Don’t worry about pulling the extensions out — it’s not going to happen. When you don’t brush your extension, your real hair that you lose every day can get tangled in your extensions. Your hair extension will become matted, leading to a painful removal process.

Proper storage:
When you are not wearing your weave, it is prudent to store it well. Roll it with a piece of silk or satin fabric then place an elastic band around it. The silk/satin fabric keeps the tracks separated, thus preventing tangling while not drying the hair at the same time.

Keep it dry:
When you leave your hair extension wet for long, the bonds can easily break down and chances of you getting tangles are also higher.
