Without proper cleaning, Brazilian Hair can accumulate bacteria and cause damage to your natural hair and scalp. With continuous wear, you should clean plastic hair extensions every three to four days. Your extensions will last longer with proper maintenance. This takes a bit more work than caring for your Brazilian Hair Bundles, but you can easily accommodate this into your beauty routine.
1. Lightly brush your Brazilian Human Hair. Avoid tugging or brushing harshly, as this will pull out hair strands.
2. Wash your plastic hair extensions with a specially designed synthetic hair shampoo. Use cold water. As an alternative, you may use a mild shampoo such as baby shampoo. Be sure to remove any tangles with a comb before shampooing. Lather the hair gently. Rinse twice.
3. Apply a small amount of diluted fabric softener to add shine and softness. Rinse once. Regular hair conditioner may weigh hair down and add unwanted oil. On the other hand, fabric conditioner promotes softness and silkiness.
4. Air-dry your extensions in a cool, temperature-controlled room or use a hair dryer on a cool setting to dry the strands. Store your extensions in a plastic bag to help preserve their quality.
5. Use your fingers or a comb to style your extensions. Apply hair products in moderation. Avoid oil-based products.
Wigs have been worn for centuries for a variety of purposes, such as to hide baldness or to alter a person's appearance. Making your own Human Hair Weave is extremely cost-effective and provides the advantage of being able to customize it exactly to your liking. If made well and properly maintained, a wig can last for many years.
1. Place the Lace Wigs cap on the client's head, just as she will be wearing the wig. Wig caps are made extremely large so they can fit any size of head and so there is often an excess part of the cap at the top. Cut half of the length off of this excess part.
2. Remove the Full Lace Wigs cap from the client's head and sew the hole at the top of the cap closed using a basic chain stitch with black thread and the straight needle.
3. Place the wig cap on the mannequin head just as the client would wear it and secure the edges using thumbtacks.
4. Sew the hair tracks to the cap starting at the nape of the neck using a basic chain stitch with thread that is a similar color to the hair and the C needle.
5. Continue sewing horizontal rows of hair tracks until you reach above the ears. Sew tracks in full circles until there is no more space left on the wig cap and all that remains is a small circular gap.
6. Remove the wig from the mannequin and ensure that there are no gaps and that all of the hair tracks are securely in place.
Taking good care of your Human Hair Wigs means gentle treatment. Becuase new growth starts at your scalp, the parts of the hair at the ends can be months or years old and need to be handled carefully. Choosing the proper tools and techniques for your Brazilian Hair type will help keep your locks long and healthy.
1. Use combs with teeth that are appropriate for your 360 Lace Frontal. For example, use a wide-toothed comb if you have thick, curly hair. Be especially gentle when combing if your hair is wet.
2. Protect your hair from the sun and the elements by wearing hats and scarves, especially in the heat of summer.
3. Trim your hair regulary to get rid of split ends, which can impede hair growth.
4. Avoid heat from hair dryers and curling irons. If you must use them, use the coolest setting possible to achieve your style. Use a heat protection gel to protect your hair.
5. Limit your use of chemical processes such as relaxers and permanent hair color. Improper use of relaxers, which straighten curly hair, can cause breakage. Perms, which curl straight hair, can have the same result. Some hair colors can damage your scalp, which will impede hair growth.
