When I say your hair I mean ‘your’ Brazilian/ Indian / Peruvian hair extensions.
The longevity of your extension hair depends on its maintenance.
Real human hair is actual hair from a real human being. So logically it’s best to maintain & treat it like one of it’s previous owners would!
Brazilian, Indian & Peruvian hair is slightly thinker than European hair and because not all bundles are necessarily from one (head) source it’s not as pure as it could be, so sometimes products like Pantene Pro V, L’Oreal & Frizz Ease don’t always work.
Below I’ve made a list of some tips and simple natural products to help maintain your hair extensions.
2. Castor Oil
Apparently washing your hair with tea, no milk & no sugar just black tea does wonders for hair.
4. Olive Oil, Lemon Juice & Coconut Oil Treatments
Just leave it on for about fifteen minutes, shampoo out and see/feel how amazing your hair will be.
You can do this every week or 2-3 weeks in to refresh & revamp. The lemon juice will strip out any extra oils, while the coconut and olive oil will moisturise. If you do this while your weave is in these two oils will be great for your scalp especially if you suffer from itchy scalp.
5. No Harsh Brushes
Don’t use brushes that are going to be super harsh or brushes that will pull and break the hair.
Keep it simple, I always untangle my hair first with a wide comb or brush then use a paddle brush (mine is a large one for long hair from Mason Pearson). This will help keep the split ends at bay.
7. Choose Your Shampoo Wisely
Finally chickas, when you have real human hair, you want to make sure you use the right shampoo. I personally recommend Moroccan oil shampoo cause it does great for my hair.
But do your research and look for a good keratin rich shampoo that might work better for you. If you find one let me know.
If you don’t wear weave and you have natural (grown from your scalp) Brazilian/Indian/Peruvian hair do look after it and if you ever get bored and want a cut, do let me know as I might have a few buyers for you.
