Hair Care Tips

Shades of Melanin Hair Care Tips:

Straight Hair Care And Maintenance

  • Make sure you shampoo at least once a week. Use a sulfate-free shampoo from a reliable brand. There’s no need to massage your hair.

  • Wash it thoroughly and take a bit of a moisturizing conditioner to apply to your hair. Start from the ends and work your way up to the scalp.

  • Rinse thoroughly and it let it air-dry.

  • Comb or brush through to get your desired style.

Always use an alcohol-free hair serum to add shine to your hair.  Braid your hair loosely before going to bed. Wear a satin scarf. You can undo the braid after waking up and use a paddle brush or a wide comb tooth to work through the ends. Work your way up to the roots to create your style.

Wavy hair 

  • Use a good quality conditioner to wash your wavy hair bundle. 

  • Air-dry your hair bundle and never blow-dry to prevent any damage.

  • You can wear it into a braid or make a ponytail when exercising. Cover it with a cap when you are swimming so it doesn’t get wet. Don’t use alcohol based products as it can dry your weave.

  • Make sure you brush your hair before going to bed with a detangling or a wide tooth comb. Avoid unnecessary pulling and tension to prevent breakage.

Detangle your hair before washing it. Use high quality moisturizers and conditioners to protect your weave.

Curly hair/Burmese Hair

    • After shampooing your hair, use a moisture rich conditioner (Tresemme Mosture Rich Conditioner) and start with ends and work your way up to the scalp.

    • Leave it on for at least 10-15 minutes. You don’t have to massage your hair.

    • Rinse thoroughly and scrunch your curls gently with Camille Rose "Curl Maker" 

    • You should apply a pea sized alcohol free hair serum which does a great job at keeping your hair frizz free. (Recommendation: Camille Rose “Curl Maker” for more defined curls and frizz free).

  • Let air-dry and avoid using oil products on curly hair as it can lead to a matting effect.

  • Do not comb or brush your hair when dry or your hair will become tangled.

  • Conditioner-only wash is best when done twice a week. 

  • *Product Recommendation Tresemme Moisture Rich conditioner.

Remember to put your curly hair in a big ponytail or 2 braids and wear a satin scarf before going to bed.

Use a water bottle to spray your hair or Nairobi foaming lotion and use a wide tooth comb to brush through section by section. Go from the roots to the top. You can also run your fingers through the curls instead of using a hard brush or comb to detangle it.

Blonde Hair

Moisturizing your weave is the best way to keep your blond hair weave in good condition. Color-safe shampoos retain the color of the extensions, but don’t always guarantee 100% cleaning.

Dry shampoos are becoming popular for managing your hair. However, they are not the best cleaning solution for your blonde hair. Since hair extensions are basically dead hair follicles, dry shampoos rarely make any difference to make your weave clean or healthy.

 It is best to use the standard sulfate free shampoo to keep your hair extensions safe and clean.

Lace Matching Help

Lace Tips (Coloring, Glue removal)

(This is only tips based on techniques we have tried with our lace)

Although many, here are the four standard lace colors.

  1. Transparent lace colors are ideal for women with creamy to fair complexions. Although ideal for these complexions, transparent lace is used most and oftentimes known to be suitable for most complexions.
  2. Middle Brown Lace - This lace color is perfect for brown scalp complexion.
  3. Light Brown Lace - This lace color matches light brown to fair scalp complexion.
  4. Dark Brown Lace - This lace color is ideal for darker scalp complexion.
  5. HD lace comes in one color, transparent. Please know that transparent lace does not blend well with brown scalp complexion. 

Choosing the best lace color

When finding your perfect lace color match, remember to match the lace with your scalp and not the tone of your skin. This ensures that the scalp looks natural and undetectable. 

First, try parting your hair and looking over your scalp color. If you come across the issue of not finding the perfect match, choose something lighter versus something darker. If that is not ideal just opt for the transparent lace. When choosing this route, go with the HD transparent lace.

HD lace is known to be undetectable which is best when looking for the perfect blend. Also, remember HD lace is delicate and more expensive, so take your budget and if you’re able to delicately handle the lace.

How To Blend your lace?

If you have chosen lace that doesn't match, try these methods.

When you have chosen a lace that is lighter than your scalp color, you can use these methods for darkening your lace.

Tip #1 - Foundation or Concealer

Using your foundation or concealer is the quickest and easiest way to darkening your lace, although this remedy is a temporary fix. The only items needed are powder and a foundation brush used to correct your lace frontal color.

Flip your frontal inside out, take your foundation or concealer and begin pressing the product into your lace blending it as close as possible to your scalp complexion. Using this technique is short term and only takes minutes to do.

The downside of this is it wears off in two or three days and becomes messy at times.

Tip #2 - Tinting tea bag method

Purchase dark tea bags (any brand) boil with water in a pot. Can also be boiled in microwave. Add 5 tea bags to the hot water and let sit until the water becomes dark. Remove bags and wait about 2 minutes. Proceed to place lace inside of water for 5 minutes then remove. Slightly shampoo and condition the lace. Let dry and style as desired.

Ways to lighten the lace (too dark, try this)

Tip #1 - Bleaching Your Knots

This method is the most common way to lighten your lace. Combine your bleach and developer into the proper mixing bowl and mix. Mix the mixture until the consistency is thick and will sit on top of the lace and not seep through.

Turn the lace inside out applying the mixture onto the lace ensuring to cover everything completely. Allow to sit for ten to fifteen minutes and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Shampoo with neutralizing shampoo, this shampoo stops the bleach from processing anymore.

Tip #2 - Purple/Lavender Colored Shampoo

This colored shampoo tones the hair canceling out any brassiness and yellow tones.

Trimming your lace

LACE FRONT WIGS 

Lace front wigs offers the wearer the opportunity to personalize and customize their lace wig to their own individual style, which then allows the wig to look more natural. You can customize the hair and hairline making it fit your style perfectly.

Although lace wigs offers such a variety, we’ve found that the number one reason that these wigs are so sought after is due to the natural, undetectable hairline everyone loves.

However, many women expressed that cutting the lace off of their lace front wig posed many issues, but once they got the hang of it, they knew they’d never go back to regular wigs.

That’s when we come in! We understand if you aren’t knowledgeable about cutting your lace wig, don’t fret, keep reading on How to Cut Lace off Your Lace Front Wig.

You won’t regret it!

Tools Needed To Cut The Lace

Wig Head (optional) - this tool is up to your personal preference. Some people like to cut their lace on their wig head, while others like to cut their lace while the wig is on their head.

Scissors or razor - again these two tools serve the same purpose but they are up to preference. Some say razors allow the more “jagged” cut which mimics the hairline more naturally. While others have found that scissors also allows that “jagged” cut.

Clips - used to clip away access hair.

Teezers - to customize your hairline.

Be sure to gather all your tools prior to cutting the lace off of your wig.

How To Trim The Lace

Step 1: Braid your Hair

Braid your hair into scalp braids, a twist out, or a low ponytail. Doing so allows your wig to sit on your head evenly. The flatter the hair, the flatter your wig will sit on your head. Cover your hair using a wig cap to avoid friction from your wig base, which may lead to breakage.

Step 2:  Put Wig On or Place Wig on Wig Head

The most important thing to do in this step is making sure your lace lays flat and where you plan on wearing it.

When using a wig form, use your pins to lay your lace flat.

When placing the wig on your head, use clips to clip the wig down or use the adjustable strap in the back.

Step 3:  Cut The Corners near your ears

Clip any excess hair out of your way. Doing this allows you to see better as well as ensuring you do not cut off any extra hair or lace.

Now, cut the corner nearest to your ear and around the ear on both sides if necessary.

Step 4: Cut Off Sections

Cutting your lace in sections vs, straight across allows you more room to create the natural hairline you desire. Most times, cutting the lace off in a straight like gives the hairline the “wig” looks.

Make your first cut straight down the middle of the lace.

Next make cuts by your temples

lastly, make cuts between your temple and ear

Now that you have your sections begin trimming your hairline one section at a time.

Step 5: Glue Lace down or use Freeze Spray (Optional Step)

Use adhesive glue, tape, or gel to lay your lace down onto your head. You can also use freeze spray to lay your lace down.
(Our recommendations i.e Got2B or TigiBead) Can be purchased from any retail store.

Wrap your head using a silk scarf for about ten minutes to makes sure your edges and adhesive are laid down.

Pros About Lace Front Wigs

Lace front wigs offer a natural looking hairline and not the “wiggy” looking hairline! The sheer lace front is designed specifically to blend in with your skins’ complexion to create an illusion of your hair growing from your scalp along the hairline.

Lace fronts offer a lot more versatility than a regular wig does.

Lace front wigs also are more breathable than regular wigs, which then allow your scalp to breath.

Wearing your lace wig also offers protective styling, allowing your natural hair to rest in between styles.

Tips To Get The Best Of Your Lace Frontal Wig

Do not show your natural hair: Some women like to pull their edged out in the front. We do suggest that you do pull all of your back and secure it prior to placing your wig on your head. Doing this will make sure none of your hair is exposed accidentally under your lace front.

Try matching the lace to your skin tone: Doing this ensures that the lace is undetectable and the baby hairs look like they are growing from your scalp.

Be careful with your wig: If you haven’t noticed the lace on your wig are delicate. Make sure you are handling it with care.
