How to Maintain Kinky Curly Hair Extensions?

Aug.23,2022
This entry was posted in Care By Bailee

It is important to understand that maintaining certain aspects of your odd curly hair extensions will ensure that they stay in good condition for a longer period of time. Hair is a delicate structure that can easily be damaged by the use of harsh chemicals or simply by natural wear and tear. If you notice that the curls in your weave are no longer as vibrant or "twisted" as they once were, here are some simple steps you can take to rejuvenate them.

1. Boost Moisture

Just as natural curly hair tends to dry out and frizz, so do your extensions. This is because curly hair extensions don't get the natural oils from the scalp that keep them fresh and healthy. If you want to maintain your beautiful curls completely without the need for frequent touch-ups or styling, it's important to find a way to restore moisture, softness and shine immediately after each style.
Look for products that contain ingredients like shea butter to deeply moisturize and nourish your hair, which is crucial to maintaining the look of curly extensions, even after they've spent hours on your head doing protective styling

2. Shampoos and conditioners

When setting out to choose a shampoo and conditioner, choose products that are alcohol and sulfate-free (these ingredients are super drying) and avoid products that contain proteins. You should definitely check out Indique's hair care serum line to give your hair extensions the best of everything. While protein-rich products can restore curl definition and restore balance to your natural curls, these products can leave your curly extensions dull and tangled, so you're better off avoiding using them as often as possible. That said, you also don't need to wash your curly hair extensions as often as 5 or 7 times per wear.

3. Co-washing is more important than shampooing

Co-wash is an acronym for "conditioner only". The technical definition of co-washing is to use conditioner and no other products for cleansing. When cleaning curly hair extensions by this method, it is best to use a conditioner that helps retain moisture to keep the extensions hydrated and soft without drying out the hair strands. Starting the process may involve gently mixing some water with the conditioner, then separating the hair into manageable sections and starting the lathering and rinsing cycle, just as you would normally use shampoo on curly or wavy extensions.

4. Air dry

Heat can dry out curly hair extensions and can cause curls to become frizzy. If you must use a blow dryer, you'll want to use the diffuser attachment and set it to the lowest temperature. Let your freaky curly hair extensions dry naturally or leave them flat overnight with a microfiber towel. If humidity isn't on your side, a light spray of water on your curls will also help them hold their shape as they dry.

5. No heat styling

Most likely, you won't be straightening your weird curly hair extensions, but if you have any such thoughts, then we suggest you keep a pair of individual relaxed straight hair extensions. This way you won't disturb the curl pattern of your kinky curly hair extensions, and And they won't be damaged by overheating. If you really need a way to curl without tools, we recommend using a non-heated method, such as a flexi-rod or perm rod.

6. Comb the knots

Kinky curly hair extensions are very fragile and they need tender love and attention to maintain their curl pattern and shape. If you brush them when they are dry, this can cause them to curl or break. They need moisture, which is why rinsing your curly hair extensions under the tap can make all the difference in the world! We also recommend using a wide-tooth comb. We also recommend using a wide tooth comb if any tangles or knots occur, as brushing these types of hair extensions can also cause damage.

7. Serums and leave-in conditioners

We recommend using a good leave-in conditioner or serum along with coconut oil or shea butter - both of which are great moisturizers and will help keep your freaky hair vibrant and fabulous. You want to make sure that any products you use on your hair are lightweight and don't weigh your hair down or clog it with buildup, because if they do, then you may notice more breakage and more split ends over time.

8. Storage

If you're using clip-in hair extensions, then never sleep with them! It is wise to save your clip-in hair extensions before going to bed. It is wise to detangle them from your hair before going to bed. Carefully store them in a box or shoe box. Even better, place your hair extensions in a silk hat or silk scarf and place both in a pillowcase to keep everything together, which will help keep the extensions silky.
