After getting hair extensions with the tips we provide, it’s important to know how to apply it to your own hair. For African Americans, you need to pay special attention due to the unique conditions of your hair.
The primary problem may be – what kind of hair weave should I choose? Well, natural human hair can be better but also more expensive than the synthetic ones. It’s very similar to your own hair: smooth, sleek and tangle-free. You can also keep it in good shape with careful brush and regular wash while synthetic hair is easy to become frizzy.
Among all kind of natural hair extensions, Brazilian virgin hair has highly cost effective for you to choose. You can also take Brazilian remy hair into consideration, which is cheaper but still in good quality.
No matter what kind of hair extensions you choose or what style you want to make, good maintenance and right method to apply could prolong the life of virgin, remy or synthetic hairs. First of all, you should put on a weave cap and make your own hair totally covered by the cap. This process can help protect your own hair from damaging by the glue and also give a more natural look of the hair weave. Then, you can pick up the braids, put glue on the tips of them and adhere to the weave cap one by one. It is also important to use right tools, for example, a bristle brush could help reducing the frictions in daily time. At night a scarf is needed after spraying light oil sheen. Regular wash hair extensions with shampoo and conditioner can also help.
Another prominent advantage of human hair is that you could change the hairstyle like curl or straighten, but remember this will hurt the cuticle and decrease maintenance. But you cannot heat the synthetic hair because it will melt.
Enjoy your life by starting changing your hairstyle!
