How to care for Virgin Natural Deep Wave, Body Wave or Straight~

This is not commercial (store bought) hair so it will not act like it, it is Virgin Hair from a human donor, which means you have to care for your new hair.

You have options now- you can dye the hair to a light color or darker because it comes in its natural state. You can flat iron the hair,and then wet it, and the curls will come back. You can also cut and trim the hair but unlike your real hair, it will not grow back- so make sure you have the hair professional cut, if you are not sure how to cut or trim. You can also leave it the length it came and not cut it at all. If you are looking for a layer look we suggest buying different lengths to accommodate your desired style.

You must shampoo/condition hair at least once a week, but not daily. You MUST shampoo & condition after swimming, spa services, exercising, and especially after exposing hair to perspiration.  >Salt water will destroy hair.<

You have to purchase hair products to maintain the hair and care for the hair so it last and you can wear it for a long time and repeat take downs.

Please adhere to the hair care instructions below and make sure you follow them.

1.    SHAMPOOING VIRGIN HAIR: You must shampoo VIRGIN hair at least once a week in warm water using a de-tangling shampoo. When you wash the hair DO NOT massage or rub hair together, instead wash in a downward motion using your fingers between each weft, wash hair in a horizontal motion and also wash the scalp. Rinse in warm water and make sure all shampoo is removed.


Daily Care for the First 10 Days: 

  • We recommend you apply Paul Mitchell "The Conditioner" or you may use a small amount of Argon oil for the first 10 days!
  • Never use Reconstructive or protein intense conditioner(s) or any other kind of conditioner(s) intended for professional use only. When used improperly, these products can damage your hair.
  • Paul Mitchell "The Conditioner" is the best leave-in conditioner suggested. 
  • At night prior to going to bed cover all hair lightly with "The Conditioner"; be sure to lift up extension hair to cover your own hair. Then use a wide tooth comb or Teflon tipped brush to distribute "The Conditioner" to all hair, from root to end, remove all tangles (...see #8. below). Moisturize daily for the first week or so (7-10 days). If your hair still feels dry, continue using "The Conditioner" at night until hair feels soft and silky. 
  • You will know that your hair has reached premium moisture level when the hair feels soft and silky. 
  • After the desired moisture level is achieved in your new hair, only use this moisturizing regiment if the hair begins to feel dry and/or start breaking.

After the initial 10 days, continue daily conditioning using a good conditioner, preferably one that has "curl/wavy" on label if you do not have straight hair, or use a minimal amount of the Argan oil daily to maintain moisture.  Purchase both leave-in and rinse-out types of conditioner.  Make sure you leave the conditioner for on at least 5 minutes. Put a shower cap on so it can penetrate and it also provides a warm environment to condition the hair.  After 5 minutes rinse out the conditioner using your fingers in a downward motion. Rinse all of the conditioner out of the hair and squeeze out excess water. Spray in leave-in curl/wavy conditioner, or a foam for those types of hair. For straight hair you can apply normally. You can use your fingers to scrunch up hair to return curl or a wide tooth comb while hair is moist and damp.

3.    DRYING VIRGIN HAIR: Let hair air dry naturally. If you have a net on after hair dries get under hair dryer for 10 minutes to dry hair under the net to avoid mildewing and sour smell of your own hair beneath the net.

4.    SLEEPING ON VIRGIN HAIR:  Never go to bed with wet or damp hair always let it dry first, this will decrease the chance of matting. Purchase a satin pillowcase and sleep on it. You can braid, pin set, twist and even curler set your hair at night. When you get up in the morning you can apply small amounts of leave-in conditioner or water to the hair using your fingers in a downward motion and the wave or curl will bounce back.

5.    COLORING VIRGIN HAIR:  Very important, if you do not know how to color hair, DO NOT experiment using your new VIRGIN hair, please consult with a hair stylist and allow them to color the hair. It is important that you do not over process the hair which can make it brittle and dry, cause shedding and matting. When dying the hair you first must test a small piece to match color and so much more you need to know, like you have to use a color toner shampoo and conditioner and more. So again, if you do not know what you are doing, locate a professional.

6.    FLAT IRONING OR CURLING VIRGIN HAIR:  Make sure you test the level of heat you have your Irons set on using a small piece of your VIRGIN hair. Remember if it’s too high (over 300 degrees) it will burn the hair just like it would burn your natural hair. Don’t use oils or grease before ironing/curling. The flat iron or curl iron look will stay until the hair gets damp or wet.

7.    WEAVING VIRGIN HAIR: Whether you weave your hair or you have it done by a hair stylist, is up to you...please see how non-professional installs affect the Warranty. Things to remember to reduce shedding-it is not recommended to cut the weft. If you do, seal those wefts! Many complaints on virgin hair come from cutting the track line (weft) without resealing your weft.  

8.    DETANGLING VIRGIN HAIR:  If ever your hair should get tangled- begin by wetting the hair with cold water (from spray bottle) and Paul Mitchell "The Conditioner." Effectively, but gently, separate hair and remove any tangles. You must detangle any and all hair before shampooing it. To detangle hair, start at the end, and work towards the scalp. Combing hair when it is tangled and dry will break and damage the hair. Do not rip through hair- use gentle, light, short strokes to negotiate the tangles; always begin at the end and work your way up to the scalp.
