Curly hair is a girl’s best friend. That is when it’s not all tangled up and frizzy. It makes you look girly, sexy and glamorous all at the same time. But a lot of ladies avoid it because they don’t know how to maintain it.
Caring for your curly hair requires some effort but it doesn’t have to be a power tussle between you, your comb and the hair. You can care for curly hair extensions easily with these tips:
Sleep With A Satin Cap To Care For Curly Hair Extensions
Satin caps are great because they help preserve the moisture in your hair. Sleeping with your curly hair extensions directly on your pillowcase will dry it out and make it frizzy. So it’s best to protect the hair with a satin cap before you sleep. Alternatively, you can use a satin pillowcase in place of the normal cotton ones.
2. Use A Leave In Conditioner
Leave in conditioners are necessary to care for curly hair extensions. It keeps the hair extensions properly moisturized, lush and bouncy. The best type of leave-in conditioners to use are the ones that are water based as they won’t weigh down the hair. An easy way to spot them is that they’re in liquid and not cream formulas. Also they come in spray bottles.
3. Don’t Comb Hair With A Fine Tooth Comb
Curly hair extensions are prone to tangling because the hair strands are not straight. Using a fine tooth comb on the hair will make it frizzy and cause it to shed. To prevent this, comb or brush hair daily with a wide tooth comb or paddle brush. Denman brushes are also really great for defining curls.
4. Comb Hair When Wet
Curly hair extensions should always be combed or brushed when its slightly wet. Brushing the hair dry will make it really frizzy so unless that’s the look you’re going for, wet the hair first before you brush or comb.
Also, if you’re going to have your curly extensions on for more than three weeks, we recommend that you co-wash every two weeks. Co-washing the hair will remove build up and keep the hair bouncy and shiny.
