Washing and Styling

Posted by on 4/14/2017 to Washing and Styling Tips

Washing & Conditioning:

Using one of the recommended products below please be sure to wash your hair and condition at least once a week to maintain healthy hair. Washing once a week helps strip the hair of any alcohols that may have been put in the hair by product use. Conditioning helps soften the hair after shampooing.

 

Styling:

Before blow drying or flat ironing please always use a heat protectant.

Leave wet hair down all day to air dry when possible.

Always use a wide tooth comb from ends to roots as brushes tend to break the hair more rapidly. Using a comb also helps limit shedding.

Limit the use of styling products

Use a silk cap at night to prevent breakage.

 

 

Straight/Loose Wave/Body Wave Care Tips:

Always use a wide tooth comb, never use a brush

 

To help maintain curl pattern please braid 2-3 large braids at night. Over time washing and styling curl patterns start to relax.

 

Dying/Coloring

If bleaching the hair curly hair does run the risk of losing the curl pattern as the bleaches “relax” the curls. Please be sure to have a licensed stylist bleach your hair to ensure the best results. Using a box dye for dying the hair black, brown etc is perfectly fine.
