Owning a curly hair is always the dream of the trendy girl. But not everyone has a strong, thick hair that can bend. Thanks to hair extension technology nowadays, it is so easy to own a nice curly hair like you dream. Today Mcsara will give you some useful tips for caring of curly hair extensions to make them always shinning.
Use products compatible with curly hair texture.
Always use a wide tooth comb which cause less frizz and breakage. Avoid touching your hair as much as possible when it is not damp. This will separate your curls and lead to unwanted frizz. (Keep your hands out of your hair).
Do not comb dry curls for you will disrupt the curl pattern and cause the hair to frizz. It’s best to style the hair while damp & allow it to air dry. To refresh curls, spray with a mixture of luke warm water, and leave in conditioner or diluted curl activator.
Curly hair can be straightened but we don’t recommend it because it may cause hair problems like shedding and tangling. If you do straighten the hair use a heat protestant spray. Washing the hair will bring back the curl texture.
If you want to dye your curly hair we highly recommend letting a professional stylist help you. If you use the wrong products the hair may become damaged.
The same as natural curly hair, curly hair extensions are likely to be drier compared to other hair textures. It is very important to use hair products that contain moisture. That is why it is very important to Condition! Condition! Condition!
Moisture is needed to maintain curly hair. Keep your curly hair well moisturized by co- washing using moisturizing conditioners.
When conditioning your hair cover the hair with a shower cap for 10 to 30 minutes (the longer the better) in order to take in the moisture.
Avoid blow drying. To prevent frizz or dryness, let your curly hair air dry by itself after washing or wetting
Do not use oily or greasy products, it can cause extreme tangling.
Do not massage or rub the hair against itself. Wash in a downward motion. Rinse thoroughly. Apply a moisturizing conditioner. Use a wide tooth comb or fingers to work the conditioner into your hair. Put on a shower cap for 10 – 30 minutes, and then rinse out conditioner thoroughly. Gently pat your hair with a towel. Spray hair with a leave in conditioner or diluted curl activator solution. Scrunch up hair gently to reform curl. Air-dry hair for the best curl formation
Shampoo tends to make the curly hair extensions dry (not all shampoos). Shampoo is used to clean the hair of product build up. You shouldn’t be using much product on your curly hair so there shouldn’t be any heavy build up. Regular shampoo does not add moisture, shine, or hydrate the hair
There are conditioners that clean, moisturize, hydrate, add shine & make the hair soft and manageable.
