As the demand for virgin hair extensions rise, so does the cost. As a result it can become costly to purchase virgin hair for every install. We get that. That’s why we are here to give you tips on making your hair extensions last through multiple installs. We want you to get the most out of your purchase so we’ve listed 5 ways to prolong the life of your virgin human hair extensions.
Seal your wefts
We cannot stress this step enough. Sealing your wefts will add extra protection to your wefts to prevent shedding over time. We all love full voluminous installs and a good weft sealant can give you just that. It may take a little bit of extra time but we promise you that it will be worth it.
Sew Around Your Wefts
Sewing through your wefts can cause shedding. By sewing around your wefts during an install you can eliminate puncturing the weft which leads to shedding. It will also make your install easier especially if the wefts are thick.
Use the Flip Over Method
Using this method will not only save you time but it will also eliminate the need to cut your wefts which will lead to shedding. It will also give you ease when you decide to reinstall because you won’t have cut pieces that you have to figure out how to place. Instead you may have one or two full bundles and a few pieces that were cut for the top of your install.
Co Wash Regularly
Virgin hair performs best when it is clean. We recommend that you co wash your virgin hair at least once a week. This will prevent any unnecessary tangling and breakage.
When Using Products Less is More
With virgin hair extensions less is more when it comes to products. Virgin hair does not react well to a lot of product. If it becomes weighed down it could potentially start tangling and this could lead to breakage. It is ok to use a little product but too much could make your virgin hair difficult to maintain.
These tips are the basic do’s of making your virgin hair last. As for styling, virgin hair extensions can handle heat and the coloring process like a champ when done properly. The goal is to use your virgin hair through multiple installs and we hope these tips can help you in your journey.
