We strongly suggest co-washing your hair before installing. Co-washing is a method to wash hair without using shampoo and washing with conditioner. When co-washing your hair you should use a moisturizing conditioner to wash the hair. Rinse the hair with cold water. Let the hair air dry and then install.
To maintain your hair wash your hair with sulfate free products. (Products that contain sulfate are very damaging and extremely drying to the hair.) Remember to use very minimal styling products and AVOID alcohol based products. Minimal heat will give longer life to your hair extensions. When hair is wet ensure that you comb thoroughly to detangle starting from the ends to the scalp.
Curly hair is a little more to maintain than the other textures. For wet, curly and wavy hair we suggest using a leave in conditioner. Remember the more heat that you use the harder it is to retract hair back to the natural curl or wave pattern.
