A Quick Review on How To Wash Your Hair:
* Shampoo and condition your hair at least once a week with a deep conditioner from a good product line.
* Rinse thoroughly and dry gently after carefully washing your hair with love. Be sure to shampoo your hair in a downward motion and don’t rub your hair against other strands of hair to prevent hair breakage.
Specific Curly Hair Care:
After you have washed your hair and it's slightly damps, separate it into small sections and either use a brush or a wide tooth comb to gently comb out each section of your locks. Spray your hair now with a leave-in conditioner or curl activator solution. Regardless, your curls will naturally take shape so don't put very much product in your locks.
It is important to remember to NOT scrunch your hair with your hands to reform your curls. The reason why is because if you paid attention to our earlier posts, rubbing your hair against other sections of your hair results breakage of your hair cuticles. Instead run your hands through small sections of your hair at a time, from your roots to your tips. It should be fairly easy since you've already gently combed your hair. If your hair isn't too wet, shake your damp hair back and forth to create more curl.
During this process the goal is to prevent frizz and keep your hair healthy and strong. The best thing that you can do for your hair is to mostly let it air dry and remember that heat is your enemy because it drys out your hair and creates frizz.

Deep condition your hair 3 to 4 times a month as well and it will help keep your extensions last a long, long time.
Another tip: if your use your blow dryer with your diffuser set on low heat, your curls will also take form. Either way keep the blow dryer set on a low heat setting and on low power. The worst thing you can do is damage your extensions due to overheating your locks and hurting your tips. Harm to the tips of your hair creates split ends from breakage and lack of essential nutrients.

Use a deep conditioning treatment after you've straightened your hair during your next hair wash or a implement a product that protects your tresses while you straighten them. As soon as it's time to wash your hair again, or if you're getting tired of your temporary straight locks, simply wash your hair again and your curls will come back immediately as they dry naturally and you have following our above hair care instructions.
With curls you can be sassy and sweet, or switch back to being a diva going on a night out with her friends in a straight hair do'. Extensions give you a variety of styles to select from and whatever you decide (straight, curly, wavy,) treat your tresses with lots of love and they will stay beautiful and strong in return.
