Hair 101: How to Revive Your Dry Weave
So, I know what everyone has been wondering, where have I been? I know. I know. Life hit me. But I’m here to drop a gem on you guys and I hopefully can make this a regular thing again.
So as life hit me, I started to make my content more versatile and open. I started working with not only makeup, but hair as well both natural and extensions. I’ve been rocking a wig since the beginning of summer and it’s still holding up pretty well. But I have to attribute that to taking good care of my human hair extensions.
I get a lot of questions about my unit and where the from so here are all the details. I got my hair from UNice. UNice Hair is a hair company that sells virgin hair at an affordable price so when they reached out to me to do this, I was more than happy to feature them on the blog.
Thanks to UNice Hair, I’m going to be dropping the tea on how I maintain my hair and keep it lasting for months.
Quick disclaimer: It took me about 3 hours total to go from start to finish but I think it’s totally worth it if your hair lasts for way longer than it should.
The things you need in order to to make sure your hair slay at all times are the following:
Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Penetrating Oil
Tresemme Heat Spray
Step 1: Rinse your wig in the sink. I like to run lukewarm water over my wig to prep it for the shampoo.
Step 2: Pump a few pumps of shampoo into your hands, give it a good rub, and lather it into your hair. Make sure you get the shampoo to touch every inch of your hair. I had a lot of buildup in my hair so I really lathered in the shampoo.
Step 3: Rinse the shampoo out of your hair and repeat the the first three steps. I lather my hair twice because I really want all the product build up from before to be completely gone. It’s just an extra step I take. (Yes, I’m extra).
Step 4: After I finish rinsing my hair, I then add a super generous amount of conditioner to my hair. And when I say a generous amount, I mean it! Work it throughout the hair and really focus it on the ends because the ends are the oldest and most fragile part of the hair.
Step 5: Let the conditioner sit in the hair for about 10 minutes. I think is this probably the most important step because it gives the conditioner time to sink and seep into the hair follicles to really moisturize the hair strands. After the 10
Step 6: Time to blow dry the hair. Usually, I let it air dry, but this time around, no one had time for all that so I brought out my blow dryer and chased the blow dry with a brush. I had a lot of patience this time around and it took me about 20 minutes total to dry.
Step 7: Now it’s time to slay with the flat iron. All I did was section my hair into two parts. I then took an even smaller section from the bigger section, combed it out, and flat ironed my hair. Major key alert…. The key to getting your hair super straight is to chase it with a comb. I found that doing that gets your hair bone straight!
Now your hair is moisturized and slayed to the high heavens!
And yes, this method works for their clip in extensions too!
For those who cannot follow my written directions, I did make a video that broke it down (yes, I’m amazing)
