We've given you the general how tos on how to take care of your hair extensions, what about Virgin Remy Hair? Any hair extensions, to properly maintain them, need to be taken care of properly. Here are some tips to keep your hair extensions looking their best! Every girl wants shiny tresses that will last for a long time!
General Every Day Care
In order to keep your Remy hair in tip top shape, braid your hair or place it in a bun before catching up on your zzz's. You also can put on a cap that's made out of silk or another soft material because this type of cap will keep your hair from moving around a lot as you sleep. Wearing a cap or placing your hair in a braid also will prevent shedding and your hair from potentially becoming all tangled during the night time.
When you get up to style your hair each morning use your fingers to run them through your Remy hair. Brushing your hair in one direction will reduce the amount of tangles. In the same way when you shampoo and condition your hair, be careful as you wash your hair. Don't rub your hair pieces against one another - be gentle and treat your hair with extra tender loving care. ;) Also keep in mind that a deep conditioner is great to use on your tresses every week or so. It will moisturize your hair and revitalize it, especially if your hair is starting to get dry. Having a soft texture is important so that's why it is in your best interest to take care of your Virgin Remy hair!
As we just mentioned, after showering, gently comb out your hair to prevent any snarling. We also suggest that you gently comb out your hair before showering, that way it will be easier to style your hair right after you get out of the shower with wet hair. Drying your hair out naturally is best, but if you must use a blow drying, use it on the lowest setting. The good news is that our Perfect Locks hair is very high quality, so your hair can actually endure a lot! But - taking care of your hair is still very important and that's why you should also stay away from products that have ingredients that could potentially cause damage to your tresses or dry them out.
Wash Your Tresses!
Washing your Remy hair extensions is important because the moisture from your hair care products will make your hair shine and look lovely. Remember to wash and condition your hair every three to five days. When you do wash your hair use a conditioner that will moisturize your tresses and a shampoo that's gentle. This means stay away from products that aren't made with mainly natural ingredient. Look for products that come with a low pH and to be on the safe side, apply conditioner prior to shampooing your hair so that shampoo won't dry out your hair. This is especially important to do if the products do have hidden and harmful ingredients. Plus, coating your hair with moisture that's similar to your extensions natural oil will help keep them in excellent shape. After completing your shampoo and conditioner treatment in reverse, wash out your hair and let it dry naturally to achieve a nice and shiny hairstyle.
Tips You Might Not Know..
If your Remy hair is braided a lot of the time, keep in mind that it needs the same care as Remy hair that is not braided. Braids will occasionally stick together, so it's imperative to gently use your fingers to take out your braid from time to time. If you feel like you'd like to straighten your hair occasionally a flat iron is okay to use, but don't over do it. Using a low heat setting is advised so that your hair will stay look luscious and full.
