So you're now rocking your new set of dreads but what's next? Dreadlocks take time to tighten and mature but a good maintenance routine will get them there faster.
1. YOUR FIRST WEEK:
If your dreads are brand new you won't need to wash them for around a week. With the extra bulk the dreadlocks give, you may find that your regular shower cap won't fit but Amazon offers extra large shower caps and for that matter, swim caps big enough to accommodate dreadlocks. Dreads are usually nice and tight immediately after installation but it is normal for them to then become a little messy and untidy as the maturing process is only just beginning. Wearing a Dread Sock to bed can help minimize this. Palm Rolling as often as possible is also a good idea to help shape the dreads in the first week.
Prior to using wefted hair, double check for looseness and make corrections by sewing through or applying a proper adhesive to the loose parts. This helps to prevent shedding.
The following are general washing instructions for your 100% human hair product. The specific weave or braid procedure will determine actual hair maintenance requirements-ask your hair stylist for specific washing and maintenance instructions.
Condition your scalp with a light all natural oil 2-3 times a week. Use conditioning braid spray with anti-itch formulation on your braids daily to keep your scalp happy and the hair underneath the braids healthy.
How to care for your virgin natural Brazilian Hair extensions should certainly, be an important subject because they are expensive and you expect them to last for a long time.
The Wild Growth® Hair Oil offers growth AND powerful natural texturizing for detangling, soft and manageable natural styles, extending relaxers/perms, and chemical-free straight or curly hair styles when blow drying and pressing and/or curling.
Always shampoo and condition hair before putting on a braid. If you have a processed hair, ensure hair is in good condition before you put on extension so as not to cause more damage to the hair. If it is virgin afro hair, add moisturisers to the hair to allow for easy combing and braiding.
