Just a few tips regarding how I care for and style our Virgin Remy Hair Extensions I hope you find them useful!
Hi Ladies I have had a few messages from clients asking me which products work well with our Brazilian Kinki Curly Hair Extensions / Lace Wigs, so I thought I would put together a list of the products I like to use on both the Kinki Curly and Afro Curl Hair.
To wash the hair I use Herbal Essence Hello Hydration shampo and conditioner for dry damaged hair. I love this product because its fantastic on the hair and very affordable. I tend to avoid using shampoo to often on this hair type as shampoo can be quite drying. So I usually co wash it using the conditioner once or twice a week, and only use the shampoo every 2 weeks.
To condition and style the hair I use Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner, its a little more expensive than other leave in conditioners, but it lasts me for ages! What I tend to do is get an empty spray bottle and poor a small amount of the mixed chicks leave in conditioner into the bottle, then I fill the rest with water. Because you only need a small amount of the mixed chicks leave in conditioner and the rest is water it can last you for months!
If I am unable to get my hands on any mixed chicks leave in conditioner then I go for Cantu Shea Butters leave in conditioner, as this also works great on the Brazilian Kinki Curly and Afro hair! The Cantu shea butter is quite a bit heavier than the mixed chicks so i only use a small amount of this on the ends so that it doesn't overload the hair.
I hope the above proves useful to all our lovely clients who are wearing our Brazilian Kinki Curly or Afro Curl Hair extensions. I have included some images below of the products I use so that those who want to buy them have a clear idea of what they are looking for (o:
Try to apply moisture to your braids every day and weekly for your hair under your weave using a good leave in conditioner or moisturizer in a spray bottle. Spritz hair regularly. You can condition your scalp and prevent itching by using lightweight, natural oils such as jojoba and sweet almond oil. Keep your scalp bacteria free and fresh by adding a few drops of tea tree oil to carrier oils. You can dab this on your scalp using cotton wool buds between braids or hair wefts.
Condition Condition Condition!!! It's important that prior to installing you weave you give your hair a good condition adding plenty of moisture, a deep conditioner is recommend is the organic root simulator replenishing pack, this can be purchased from most beauty stores including Boots.
Below is my daily routine when wearing my Virgin Brazilian Wavy Hair Extensions.
At bed time, I brush my hair extensions using my tangle teezer brush, spray a little Aussie Hair Care Leave in Conditioner on it, and then braid the hair into two long braids. In the morning I just undo the braids and if I want it to have a tight beach wave look I will finger comb the hair and go, if I want a bigger wave I will use my tangle teezer brush or wide tooth comb and brush the hair. Which ever method I use I always add a little hair gloss to keep the hair soft, (I usually use the Kera Care gloss) I don't believe in going over the top with products as I think they can sometimes spoil the natural texture of the hair extensions. I like to protect my leave out so rather than messing around with it and trying to blend my leave out I just pin it up for work, the school run and stuff, and then leave it down and make more effort to style it at the weekends.
If I have a BIG night out then I will get the blow dryer, and straighteners or curling wand out to glam things up!!! (I try to avoid heat on my hair so I usually only use it once per week at the very most!) I will do a post on this over the future months and try to post some pics too! I only wash my hair extensions once or twice per week and I will go through my routine for this and the products I use in a later post. I hope you guys found the above useful! Feel free to post your own daily routines and recommended products, we would love to know what works for you!
Hey VHC Ladies its Kerryleigh here, I would like to recommend a fabulous hair brush called the tangle teezer!!!! Its been designed with hair extensions in mind and it is fabulous!!!! I highly recommend it for use on our Virgin Indian wavy remy hair, virgin Brazilian wavy remy hair, virgin Indian straight remy hair and virgin Brazilian straight remy hair. Its also great on mine and both of my daughters natural hair.
I purchased mine from Boots it cost me £10 and I cant recommend it enough!
Co wash product - herbal essence hello hydration conditioner
Shampoo - herbal essence hello hydration
Deep conditioner - ORS hair mayonnaise
Leave-in conditioner - Cantu Shea leave in moisturiser
For definition of the curls for a spiraled ringlet look, always use a denman brush. Always comb and brush when wet and with product in the hair. Never comb dry.
Our Virgin Brazilian Curly Remy Hair
If you like to wear your hair in tighter curls you can dampen the Brazilian Curly hair with water and a little leave in conditioner and scrunch, then blow dry or let the hair air dry (air drying is much better for the hair) if you choose to blow dry use a little heat protector. This tip will really bring out the curls in our Brazilian Remy Curly Hair.
The Best Hair Products To Use On Our Virgin Indian Remy and Virgin Brazilian Hair Extensions
I currently wear our Virgin Indian Remy Wavy Hair and my number 1 recommended product to use on this hair is AUSSIE HAIR CARES LEAVE IN CONDITIONER! I use a small amount daily as it smells beautiful and leaves her ends beautifully soft!
I advise that you NOT to over use products as the Virgin Remy Hair from The Virgin Hair Company is such good quality a little goes a long way!!!! Going over the top with products will spoil the natural effect of the Virgin Remy Hair so my advice would be to use products sparingly.
How To Blend our Virgin Indian Curly Remy Hair and Virgin Brazilian Curly Remy Hair and Kinki Curly Hair without the use of heat!
Start by dampening your leave out (your own hair) with water, add some leave in conditioner and then braid on your own hair, (at this point leave the hair extensions alone)
Leave the braids in for at least 2 hours (or however long it takes for your hair to dry) and then remove the braids, give the hair a very gentle finger comb in order to separate the curls you have created by braiding the hair.
Then add a tiny little bit of leave in conditioner such as cantus shea butter leave in conditioner and you should be left with a curl pattern that blends well with both our Brazilian Kinki Curly Remy Hair and Afro Curl Remy Hair.
For the Virgin Indian and Brazilian curly remy hair you can follow the exact same process, but do a two strand twist rather than a braid so that a looser curl pattern which will blend perfectly with both our Indian and Brazilian curly hair. You can also use rollers to create a loose curl on your leave out.
