How to Define Curls in Your Virgin Curly Hair Extensions

Curly Virgin Extensions Empress Luxury Hair

Our virgin hair extensions can be worn as is or heat straightened for a different look. When you’re ready to get back to your curls just wash the hair and define the curls. Why should you define the curls after you wash the hair? Because virgin hair is completely unprocessed human hair, it behaves much in the same way your naturally curly hair does.  Getting back to virgin curly hair – any naturally curly-haired empress will tell you that their natural curls require some type of product for definition, hydration, and frizz prevention.

So here are five tips for how to define the curls in your virgin curly hair extensions:

  •  Avoid product buildup.  Keep your extensions clean by shampooing regularly with a sulfate free formula.  Product buildup will weigh down your extensions preventing the curls from forming freely.
  • Hydrate! Spraying the extensions with water will moisturize the hair and reactivate the curl pattern.  The best thing about water is it is free and will not cause any build up on the hair.
  • Avoid rubbing.  When you’ve wet the hair either from spritzing to help the curls to pop or after washing, try not to rub the hair to remove excess water with a towel or other material. Instead gently twist the hair and squeeze the excess water from the extensions.  Rubbing will cause frizziness and may even cause the hair to tangle.
  • Use a cream based product.  Creams usually require less product to be added to the hair than sprays and are able to be more evenly distributed.  You may choose to use a dollop of your favorite conditioner or a curl enhancing cream.  Either way, start with as little product as possible and distribute using a wide tooth comb.  Add a bit more product if necessary, but remember less is more!
  • Sleep on Satin.  Cotton causes friction on your virgin curly hair extensions and roughens the cuticle, robbing them of moisture and causing frizz.  Sleeping on satin will help your curls remain intact much better throughout the night therefore taking less effort (and little to no additional product) the next day to style.
