Best Products for Virgin Human Hair Extensions

Are you using trial and error to maintain your virgin human hair extensions?

When transitioning over to authentic virgin human hair, you may find that you have a lot to learn about basic maintenance. Back in the days when I shopped exclusively at my local beauty supply for hair extensions, maintaining my extensions was not a primary concern because I knew that no matter what I did I would only get a month tops wear out of my extensions. In my quest to find real virgin human hair, I also found that I had a lot to learn about how to take care of it.


Which shampoos and conditioners are best for virgin human hair?

The most common question that I am asked is “what products should I use”? After much trial and error I have found that with the popular trends on the market today such as Brazilian hair, Malaysian hair, Cambodian hair, Russian hair, Eurasian hair etc. it is best to keep it simple. One universal and inexpensive favorite of mine is the Herbal Essences line. Their shampoos and conditioners leaves the hair smelling good and feeling super soft. You can also purchase it at Walmart for about $3.00.

Another cheapie but goodie is the Herbal Escapes V05 line. I primarily use their clarifying shampoo for getting rid of dirt and product buildup. This can be found at any grocery store or pharmacy for a whopping $1.00.






Can you use holding spray on virgin human hair extensions?

Ok so we all know that some yaki textures are notorious for not holding a curl very long. So whenever I want to rock curls in my yakis I use Tresemme holding spray. This is my favorite because it gives you a firm hold without making your hair hard and my curls last for a day or two, sometimes three depending on how I maintain it at night. It is best to use a little because with this product a little goes a long way.


These are my staples and basic products that I use on Virgin human hair. They don’t weigh the hair down and guarantee a fresh look after a long week. They are also extremely affordable. No need to break the bank on products, the hair itself is already an investment.
