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. Do not bunch or scrub hair together since it will allow the cuticles to open. Use high quality moisturizers and conditioners to protect your weave.

Curly hair 

    • After shampooing your hair, use a moisture rich conditioner (Tresemme Flawless Curls) 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.

    • You should apply a pea sized alcohol free hair serum which does a great job at keeping your hair frizz free. You can also use a curl cream for a more tamed look. (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 Flawless Curls conditioner or Shea Moisture.

Remember to put your curly hair in a big ponytail and wear a satin scarf before going to bed. You can un-tie the ponytail after waking up. Or braid into 2 braids.

Use a water bottle to spray your hair 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 weave. 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 weave safe and clean.
