There is no disputing that Virgin hair, in any texture, is beautiful in all its Glory. However, it does have the tendency over time to become dull, weighed down, and lose its luster from the first time it was installed. Our initial response usually is; “OMG! This hair should have lasted a lot longer than this” And it can with the proper attention, your extensions can last for….well, 6 months and beyond.
Unfortunately we have to say it…The primary reason why virgin hair extensions don’t last as long as they can, is due to user error. Virgin hair requires more effort to care for, compared to your average beauty supply type.
Just like your skin, your hair is exposed to the all the outdoor elements therefore it needs to be cleaned regularly. Once a week will suffice. Too often individuals are of the notion that if they are not putting product in their hair, or only sparingly, that their hair is not dirty. Still there are other factors at play like street Dust, various forms of dirt and other pollutants on a daily basis from the unavoidable sources. Clarifying shampoos work great once a month to remove build-up like this, but don’t use it too often, or you’ll end up with very dry locks.
For many who wash their hair on a on-going basis, they often neglect another important factor – the conditioner!! Please don’t let this be your error. Moisture is comparative to nutrition for your hair. Ensuring that you get your required dose of moisture can be done by purchasing a great moisturizing conditioner and using it every time you wash. A leave-in conditioner is another option. The best choice for this is the Dermorin Smoothing Serum. It offers without weighing the hair down.
As far as daily care, be careful about using too many products (and a variety of brands). Less is more, as our Grand-mothers or Mothers often tell us. Still if you insist on using product, be sure to use alcohol-free and non-greasy or oily ones. Either of these product can cause extreme damage to the hair.
For additional hair care, always use wide-tooth combs and/or vented brushes when styling your virgin hair. You want as little pull and tension as possible! At night, always remember your satin scarf or bonnet for covering and protecting your tresses Ladies! One final amazing tip is that Flexirods are amazing for keeping body and keeping your ends looking fab and, unlike rollers, they’re very easy to sleep on!
We hope that these tips assisted with avoiding any stress about your Virgin Hair.
