Caring for your weave, wigs and extensions is quite different than caring for your real hair because they can be manufactured with synthetic or human hair.
You can only style synthetic using low-temperature heat or no heat at all. Also, you should not wash Synthetic hair as often as human hair.
Excessive cleaning can shorten the life of synthetic hair; on the other hand, you should only wash human hair extensions every 10-14 days to remove product build-up, dirt and oil. Human hair weaves also need additional moisture.
The new Design Essentials Moroccan oil collection is designed to maintain the look and feel of weaves, extensions and wigs.
Each Product in this new collection is lightweight so the products won't weigh down on your weaves or extensions and keep it detangled and shiny.
Start with the sulfate-free conditioning shampoo. This is designed to extend the wearability of the wig and also eliminate any tangles and reduce shedding. Just work through the product as if you’re cleansing your natural hair.
When you are done washing, follow up with the detangling brush to make sure all those tangles are gone and the hair is revived.
The next step is the detangling blow-dry conditioner. This is going to also aid in detangling your hair, reducing the shedding, adding a charm about the heavy build-up and control the frizz. Work the product through your fingers first and then follow up with a wide-tooth comb.
