Keep your curls lookin’ 100.
Hey Curlfriends! The steps to keep your Heritage1933™ hair looking flawless are posted below. This is by no means the only way to keep your hair fresh. Use whatever products work well for you. Modifications can be made when necessary.
Hydrate, shampoo and condition your new Heritage1933™ hair prior to installation. This is an important step that will not only allow you to appreciate the true beauty of our hair, but it will provide the hair with much needed moisture.
1. Hydrate: Fill a basin or sink with enough warm water to completely submerge your Heritage1933™ hair product. Add a generous amount of conditioner to the water. Dissolve the conditioner by simply swishing the water with your hands. Do not remove the weft ties. Place the wefts, closure or frontal inside of the basin. Allow hair to remain in this hydrating bath for at least one hour.
2. Shampoo: Remove the hair product from the hydration bath. Gently rinse with warm water. Apply your desired shampoo to the hair, while holding the weft or closure base, gently shampoo in a downward fashion. Rinse thoroughly.
3. Condition: Apply a generous amount of conditioner to the hair. Gently comb hair with a wide tooth comb or a detangler brush , to assure even coverage. Place hair in a plastic bag for 5 minutes. Remove hair from bag and rinse thoroughly. Apply a recommended leave-in conditioner, and gently comb hair with a wide tooth comb or detangler.
4. Dry: Lay hair flat on a towel or hang to air dry.
Weft or Closure Sealing: Should be done after the hair has been allowed to completely dry.
Weft reinforcement is the application of a sealant to the weft to prevent shedding, thereby extending the life of the weft. Sealants can be purchased from your local craft store, for they are usually used to prevent fraying of fabrics. We recommend Prym Dritz Fray.This particular product is white when wet but dries clear. Shampoo, condition, and dry hair prior to sealing. Apply a thin layer of sealant to both sides on the weft. Allow one side to dry before beginning the opposite side. The sealant must not come into contact with water for 5 days. Once the sealant has dried, the hair can be installed; you do not have to wait 5 days to install the hair
Please Note: This is not a requirement, for our wefts are reinforced. Per your discretion!
Please read the labels of all hair products carefully. Do not use any of the hair products recommended if you are allergic to the product or to any ingredient in the hair care product.
