Maintaining a kinky curly hair style when using your hair extensions is extremely important when you want to keep your hair style looking beautiful for a longer period of time, easily.
If your hair weave is losing it's curl pattern, I have a few hair afro hair extension tips that you could do at home to help maintain it's style for longer. Here are some easy step by step tips to maintain your weave and bring it back to beautiful life!
Make sure to gently detangle your hair extensions on dry hair using a wide tooth comb section by section.
If you brush your hair extensions when hair is wet that can cause the hair to stretch snap and break. So please make sure hair is dry.
People might say to never brush the hair while it's dry, but the hair is known to stretch up to 40% when the hair is wet which can alter the hair's shape when it dries.
As long as you take a small section at a time, it will come out beautiful, just be gentle. :)
Starting from the bottom of each section working your way up to the roots of each section of hair.
Now gently place the afro hair extensions inside your sink filled with luke warm water and a bit of moisturizing shampoo.
After soaking for a minute or two, gently squeeze the suds through the hair extensions until the suds thoroughly clean the afro hair exstensions.
Quick tip human hair wig don'ts:
Now after the hair is thoroughly shampooed unplug the sink's water.
Add fresh new luke warm to cool water to the sink to rinse the wig completely. Place the faucet's water over the wig while squeezing the wig simultaneously until the water runs clear of suds on the hair extensions.
Quick hair extension tip: Using cool water when rinsing the wig will help to close the hair's cuticle and make your wigs appear more silky and shiny with less frizz naturally.
Also the reason that I said to use luke warm water in the shampoo portion of this article instead of cool water is due to the fact that you slightly want to open the hair cuticle to release the dirt and left over hair products in order to properly clean and maintain nice clean hair extensions.
Taking care of your hair extensions properly this way will help to keep them for a longer period of time which will save you money.

What you do is :
Step 1) Wrap a long scarf around the base of your head to bring the curls high up to the top of your head in order to avoid smashing and preserving your curly afro hair extensions.
Please note: Do NOT tie the scarf too tight because this can disturb the blood circulation to the hair and cause hair loss thinning. So please tie the scarf loose, yet slightly snug, is best!

The best tips and advice to avoid to help keep hair damage from happening to your hair extensions is to avoid using heavy damaging hair products and heat tools.
Avoid using products such as hair sprays and other products with the ingredient alcohol which can be extremely damaging to the extensions as well as your own hair.
Even some products that are said to help moisturize your hair could have alcohol in it which then becomes a vicious cycle to keep using the product.
It's best to use moisturizing hair products for your pretty afro hair.
Also try not to wash hair every day because doing so can cause dry hair which can lead to unhealthy hair breakage.
Use a spray bottle to spray hair using a recipe of 50% water and 50% light leave in conditioner when styling the hair extensions.
Make sure to use a good deep conditioner once a week for the best results possible to get beautiful Afro curly hair!
