HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR VIRGIN HAIR
At She'z Royalty Collection, we strongly believe that your raw virgin hair is an investment. For that reason, we strongly recommend following and utilizing the hair care steps below to maintain the quality of your raw virgin hair, increase the longevity, and to ensure that your investment lasts for years to come. With proper care hair and maintenance, your raw virgin hair is designed to last up to approximately 1-2 years.
The first important step after purchasing your virgin hair is to co-wash. We strongly recommend co-washing your virgin hair before installation in order to reveal the natural luster of the hair, restore the hair to it's natural state, and for sanitation purposes. After co-washing your raw virgin hair, allow the hair to air dry.
The second important step is to seal your wefts and lace closure and/or frontal. Using a sealer helps to prevent shedding, increases longevity, and protects your raw virgin hair. A favorite product that we recommend is Dritz: Fray Check.
This product can be found at your local fabric store.
For instructions on how to seal your wefts, please refer to our YouTube page here.
WASHING YOUR HAIR:
♛ While washing your virgin hair, we recommend using a sulfate-free shampoo to remove a build-up of silicone-based styling products.
(Products that contain sulfate are very damaging and extremely drying to the hair.)
♛ Use cool water to retain moisture. Do not wash your hair with hot water as excessive heat can lead to dryness. While washing always gently finger-comb your virgin hair in a downward motion and do not scrub or rub the hair together.
A favourite shampoo product that we recommend is the
Pureology: Hydrate Shampoo as it is 100% vegan and sulfate-free.
♛ If you are washing your closure or frontal, please VERY GENTLE as the lace is very delicate and can easily rip and/or tear if you are not careful.
♛ After washing your hair, we strongly recommend conditioning your hair using a high-quality deep conditioner. A favorite conditioning product that we recommend is the
Pureology: Hydrate Conditioner as it is 100% vegan and sulfate-free.
♛ After rinsing out the conditioning, use a wide-tooth comb to gently brush your hair while they are semi-dry. Do not pull or tug on the hair when it is wet.
♛ Always allow your virgin hair to air dry instead of using heat styling tools to maintain the longevity of the hair. We recommend letting your virgin hair dry on a towel or flat surface.
We do not recommend sleeping on wet hair and we do not recommend sleeping with your hair extensions out. Before bed, braid your hair into a loose braid towards the back of your neck. Place a satin bonnet over your hair or tie your hair neatly using a satin scarf to prevent your hair from tangling. Upon awaking, unravel your braid and gently brush through the hair working your way up from the ends to the roots.
DAILY & WEEKLY MAINTENANCE TIPS:
♛ Treat your virgin hair extensions as an extension of your own hair and always use good quality hair products. Avoid using sulfate-based products as sulfates are extremely drying to the hair.
♛ Brush your hair on a daily basis to smooth out any flyaways using a detangling brush. A small "dime-sized" amount of natural oils such as coconut oil or Argan oil may be used to help seal in moisture and for maximum hydration.
♛ Once a week it is recommended to use a clarifying shampoo on your raw virgin hair in order to remove any product build-up. A favorite product that we recommend is the Live Clean: Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo which is 98% plant-derived and is both sulfate-free and paraben-free.
♛ We strongly recommend to deep condition your hair extensions at least once a week to keep it nourished and healthy, to restore smoothness, and to maintain longevity and manageability. Deep condition for at least 4-6 hours or overnight for best results. A favorite product that we recommend is the It's A 10: Miracle Hair Mask as it is deeply nourishing and is both sulfate-free and paraben-free.
♛ We strongly recommend consulting with a licensed professional colorist before bleaching, coloring, or chemically treating your hair extensions.
♛ As with your own hair, excessive heat styling will eventually cause damage. Therefore, when using heat styling tools, always be sure to use a medium to low-temperature setting and use a heat protectant spray/serum that protects up to 450 to prevent heat damage to your hair extensions. A favourite product we recommend is the Caviar Anti-Aging: Perfect Iron Spray as it is both sulfate-free and paraben-free.
CURLY HAIR ROUTINE:
♛ If you have curly hair, we strongly recommend conditioning your hair on a DAILY basis as curly hair tends to dry out more quickly if it is not kept moisturized.
♛ Create a conditioning solution by mixing lukewarm water and leave-in conditioner together in a spray water bottle. Generously spray your curly hair with the conditioner solution. A favorite product we recommend is the It's A 10: Miracle Leave-In Product as it is both sulfate-free and paraben-free.
♛ Afterward, apply a "dime-sized" amount of any natural oil such as coconut oil or argan oil to help seal in moisture. You may also use a leave-in conditioning spray specially formulated for curly hair. Careful not to use too much product to avoid weighing down your hair extensions.
♛ After washing your curly hair, we strongly recommend using a wide-tooth comb to gently comb out any tangles while the hair is still damp. Do not comb your curly hair while it is dry in order to avoid ruining the curl pattern.
♛ We strongly recommend avoiding using any heat on your curly hair. If you would like to define your curls for a special occasion, then you may use a diffuser on a low-temperature setting.
♛ By utilizing the tips above, your raw virgin curly hair will be left deeply nourished, hydrated, and looking their best.
Never forget to condition, condition, condition!
