Human hair care tips for weaves

Luxeriva's Hair Care Tips

September 19, 2017

Hair Care Suggestions:

Pre-Installation

  • Before installation you may want to seal the edge of the weft with a bonding glue to reduce the chance of shedding – use a black bonding glue to avoid visible white dried glue remnants

 

Day-to-Day Maintenance and Styling

  • Always detangle hair using a wide-toothed comb or brush whilst it is dry and before washing, never comb or brush hair while wet because similarly to natural hair the strands are more fragile when wet and susceptible to breaking
  • Try to avoid shampoos with sulphates as these strip hair of moisture and will remove essential oils from your scalp
  • Use a conditioner after shampooing and be sure to rinse the conditioner off with cold water to enhance the strength and shine of hair.
  • Use a Luxeriva recommended oil to maintain moisturised tresses.
  • For curly styles spritz the hair with water each morning, using fingers to detangle – then liberally apply a curl definer product of your choice before scrunching hair with your palms to encourage coils to re-form
  • Avoid heat styling, but if you must be sure to use a heat protector spray
  • Braid or Wrap hair before sleeping and cover with a silk scarf, bonnet or use a silk pillow case if you don’t want to cover your head
  • Avoid swimming in chlorinated water and protect hair from the elements if damage or detriment (dust, smoke etc.) is probable
  • Always have hair dyed or coloured by a hair professional
  • Enjoy your hair!
