Cleaning curly hair weave:

In order to keep your curly human hair bundles healthy, we need to be sure the hair is clean. Cleansing the hair regularly and at the right time is important for long-term healthy hair and a healthy scalp. Different scalps needs different frequency of cleansing. If you have an oily scalp, you may cleanse a few times a week. If you have a dry scalp, you should cleanse the hair no more than once a week and no less than every two weeks. Of all the products in your curl cabinet, the shampoo or cleanser is playing a necessary role.

Conditioning curly hair weave:

Condition your curly hair bundles after each cleanse. Being careful not to skip this step and jump straight to a leave in conditioner. Choose a correct conditioner for your hair. Make sure that you use shampoo and conditioner that are suitable for the curly hair bundles. Look at the label and make sure it’s formulated for curly hair weave. Normally, like our own natural hair, the ends of curly hair tends to see the most dryness and damage, they are the oldest of the hair. Please use more conditioner on the ends, and very little at the roots. Focus on conditioning the ends and then work your way up to the roots. Keep the conditioner in your hair for at least five minutes. And for the damaged hair badly or usually dry hair, we can increase the time to fifteen or twenty minutes.

Sealing curly hair weave:

This step is not necessary for everyone but if you find that your hair is often dry, damaged and in need of quenching or repair, please try to seal in your moisture with a high quality oil blend. Oils are a natural way to condition your bundles without using chemicals or risking product buildup. What kind of oil is best for you depends on your hair texture and your own preferences. Use the oil blend on the ends of your strands to seal your ends and hold in those precious nutrients. T

Detangling:

Before you do anything, it is imperative that your hair is properly detangled. Use a wide tooth comb or detangling brush on slightly damp hair and gently work through in sections from the tips to the root. Proper detangling will make everything from shampooing to styling significant

Daily Moisturizing:

Moisture is key to keeping your curls intact. By keeping your curls moisturized, they’re better able to keep their form and less prone to frizz, which helps prevent tangling and cuts down on detangling time.

Spritz your hair daily with water to help with product absorption and follow-up with a leave-in conditioner designed for curly hair. Avoid products with harsh alcohol and silicone, which can make hair extremely stiff and dry.

Shampoo/Conditioning:

Never underestimate the importance of clean hair! To keep curls refreshed, shampoo your hair at least once a week with a moisturizing, sulfate-free shampoo. Take care to wash hair in a downward motion to avoid tangling. Next, follow-up with a moisture-rich conditioner, working it in with the same downward motion. To ensure each curl gets the moisture it needs, use your fingers or preferred detangling tool to evenly distribute the conditioner throughout.

Co-Washing:

If you find your curls need a mid-week boost, co-washing is a great way to bring hair back to life and infuse extra moisture. As you did with shampooing, be sure to work your conditioner.

Deep Conditioning:

Deep conditioning can be a major game changer in increasing the longevity of your curly weave. Look for hydrating hair masques and/or oils like argan or babassu for hot oil treatments. Coat hair in sections, twisting those sections to avoid tangling before putting on a plastic cap for approximately 30 mins. To boost results, sit under a hooded dryer to increase moisture intake. Use your fingers to gently detangle.

Styling:

The best thing about curly hair extensions is that it is a style on its own, but if you do want to manipulate your curls via styling you must be gentle. This means careful detangling before styling to minimize unnecessary tension and pulling whether blowing out, twisting or bantu-knotting your weave.

Sleep:

To preserve your curls overnight and avoid tangling, it is imperative to protect them from friction. And enemy number-one of frizz-free hair? Cotton pillowcases. Two common methods to prevent being a morning frizz monster is doing a pineapple wrap on dry hair and wrapping it in a silk or sating head scarf at night.  Your Crown is our Glory, Be Chic at Chic Hair Today.
