As a recent purchaser, now that you own 100% natural and gorgeous hair, you want it to last as long as possible. The best possible way to keep your virgin hair healthy and strong is by maintaining it and there are certain tips on how to do this. Here are some basic instructions on how to properly care for your virgin Indian hair.
1. Detangle Your Hair
Split ends and dryness are common in your new hair. You also may run into knots. To prevent them, hold your hair firmly in a ponytail. Then using a paddle brush or wide tooth comb, comb gently through the top of your hair to the ends to eliminate any tangles.
2. Wash and Condition Your Hair
It may seem as easy as 1,2,3, but washing your virgin hair with care is very important to keeping your hair healthy. Thoroughly wash your hair with quality products that should be from a well recommended product line. While showering, apply a generous amount of conditioner and massage it into your hair by using your fingertips. Stay away from products that contain sulfates or alcohol and also use products specific to your hair type, which we will cover in more detail in a future blog post.
3. Rinse and Dry Your Hair
After you've gently massaged the conditioner into your hair, carefully rinse it with luke warm water. Then pat dry your hair with a towel or blow dry it on low heat with a blow dryer. If your hair is slightly damp after towel drying it, spread in some leave in conditioner. Don't take it out but also don't do this every day. Every 2-4 weeks for applying leave in conditioner in your hair is recommended.
4. Styling Your Hair
Your hair is all clean and it's time to style it! By properly styling your hair it will help prevent frizz and if you have curls, using products that define your curls is key. Don't use products such as hair spray, mousse, or gel. Using natural and organic products are best for your virgin Indian hair.
