Maintaining your kinky curly hair extensions is paramount if you want to keep it looking good for longer. If your weave is losing its curls and has a dull look to it, here are some easy steps to maintain them and bring them back to illustrious life.

Detangling Kinky Afro Curly Extension

Wet hair thoroughly and use your fingers to gently detangle hair while soaking wet. Never attempt to detangle the hair when it is dry as this will cause breakage.

If you must use a brush to detangle, choose a wide-tooth comb for detangling the kinky, curly hair. Always start detangling from the ends to root. Avoid using a paddle or bristle brush.

Washing & Drying Kinky Afro Curly Extension

A good rule to follow when it comes to caring for your kinky, curly weave hair is the less you wet/wash it, the better. Use a moisture rich conditioner and distribute conditioner through hair in a downward motion using fingers. Then using your fingers, brush conditioner through your hair.

Air drying must always be your number one option, when possible. If you must use heat, use it infrequently. Do not forget to use a heat protectant, along with a diffuser attachment with a hair dryer on warm heat - too much heat may loosen the curl pattern. Never aim the nozzle directly on the hair, as it can cause shedding. The less the heat, the longer your hairstyle will last.
