Caring for Extensions and Natural Hair

How to prepare your natural hair:
*Use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner along with a thinning shampoo for one wash if desired
*Use a leave-in conditioner or some other type of moisturizer (I used Better Braids Medicated Spray)
*Let your hair air dry (give it a break from heat)
*Use a braid pattern that works best for the type of extensions you are using
*Use a wig cap

Caring for extensions:
*Shampoo and condition extensions every 1-2 weeks with moisturizing products (Dove, Creme of Nature, Goldwell’s Kerasilk, Pureology)
*Let wigs air dry on a manikin head with a leave-in conditioner (Lanza, Paul Mitchell, PhytoSpecific)
*Use a heat protectant when using heat styling (Redken’s Smooth Down serum, Paul Mitchell’s Skinny serum)
*To prevent the hair from tangling, use leave-in conditioners to keep the hair moisturized throughout the week. Make sure to moisturize your own hair as well. Stay away from heavy oils. Use your fingers or a wide comb to detangle. A boar bristle brush is good for keeping the extensions smooth.

Product recommendations from the stylist that never replied to my request to feature her:

** DOVE ADVANCED THERAPY SHAMPOO
** DOVE ADVANCE THERAPY CONDITIONER

** CREME OF NATURE -HERBA RICH

** AUSSIE HAIR INSURANCE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

** ELASTA QP H-TWO LEAVE IN

no oil sheens/grease, as they will not help you and in most cases make your weave weighed down, tangly, and overly shiny
if you wash and condition the hair at least bi weekly, it will have moisture and a sheen and no type of oil sheen/grease should be needed.
