Taking care of Peruvian Virgin Hair Weaves
TIPS: The key to taking care of your Peruvian hair is irregular washing and deep conditioning. Always remember to comb through your weave with a wide-toothed comb to remove tangles.
1.Apply natural oil such as olive oil or coconut oil to your scalp and natural hair after you must have detangled your virgin hair weave. The oil should be applied to every portion of your hair that is left out.
2.Dampen your Peruvian hair with water using a spray bottle. You can do this in sections to make sure that your hair is thoroughly dampened. Afterwards, comb through your weave again using your wide-toothed comb. You would also need to comb the portions of your hair that are left out.
3.Next would be to deep condition. With your most preferred deep conditioner or masque, apply generously. Make sure that your weave is very saturated. Once this is done, clip your hair up and put on a plastic shower cap.
4.Your shower cap should stay on for at least an hour before washing. This will ensure that your hair is properly and deeply conditioned. We recommend sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to give your hair the best treatment.
5.Towel dry your hair till it is only mildly damp, then apply any of your favourite natural oil or straightening balms. Ensure that it is thoroughly distributed throughout your virgin hair weave and your natural hair.
6.Since leaving your Peruvian hair damp is not a good option, we are going to be blow drying next. This is a little bit of a time consumer as you would want to be certain that every last strand of your hair extension is properly dried. While blow drying, use a paddle or round brush to comb through to prevent it from tangling and to ensure that your weave dries as fast as possible.
7.Brush through your weave again to remove any tangles that must have passed you. Apply your leave-in conditioner afterwards.
8.With very low heat, blow-dry your hair again. This helps the leave-in conditioner penetrate your scalp properly.
9.Apply your favourite natural oil to your hair extensions and brush thoroughly. Split your hair into two sections from the middle.
10.Finish off by apply setting lotion and make each section into a French braid. This will ultimately restore any curl or wave pattern in the weave before treatment. If you decide to switch up your Peruvian hair look from curly to straight, there would be no need to braid your hair. Simply wrap your hair around your head and hold it in place with clips.
