Hair Care

What You Need to Know

Straight Textures:

All straight textures are easy to maintain. Can be shampooed with a gentle hydrating shampoo and a conditioner as normal. Always use a paddle brush or a wide tooth detangling comb to gently comb the hair from ends to roots. when coloring or bleaching the hair, it should never be installed on your head during this process and you should always deep condition overnight in a plastic bag wrapped up, rinse with cool to warm water, and let the hair air dry. When styling the hair please use a heat protectant and never exceed temperatures above 450 degrees. Anything above that can run the risk of burning the hair.

 

Wavy/Curly Textures:

All wavy and curly textures need extra care; more so curly but we're going to treat both the same. If you're not willing to keep up with the maintenance of having curls, then this is NOT the hair for you. You must only co-wash the hair with a conditioner. NEVER shampoo! This will cause dryness and tangles. Keep in mind you must treat this hair as if it's your own hair growing out your scalp. Only use a paddle brush to detangle the hair in running warm water and with conditioner. Start from the ends and work your way to the wefts. Always let the hair air dry and NEVER manipulate the hair in any kind of way while the hair is drying. If you touch it while it's still wet, it will cause frizz and can tangle. NEVER sleep in wet hair because that too can cause frizz and tangles. It can also carry a spoiled scent (mildew smell) to the hair because it wasn't properly air-dried.

Air needs to circulate the hair to keep from spoiling. When coloring and bleaching the hair always deep condition overnight in a plastic bag wrapped up, and after rinsing add a light mist of leave-in conditioner and either have it hanging up to dry on a hanger or you can lay it flat to dry on a microfiber towel or t-shirt.

When wearing the hair as a sew-in you cannot exceed 2 days without detangling the hair, and 5 days without co-washing. Make sure when detangling the hair as a sew-in to use a paddle brush and mist with warm water with a little bit of conditioner mixed in it. This will help soften the hair and reset the curls. Start from the ends and work your way up.

 

Wigs and Clip-ins:

Follow the same procedure as before when washing and co-washing.

If getting a professional install on your wigs, make sure you use proper care if there is a bonding agent used on the lace and skin. Always seek a professional help when removing the unit to insure the health of your skin and your wig.

Use a gentle conditioning shampoo on the lace itself to break down any bonding agent and/or makeup left behind on the lace. Use the padding of your fingertips in a gentle circular motion to help break down and dissolve all product build up. Follow up with your conditioner as stated earlier.

 

Closures and Frontals:

Same procedure as before with washing and co-washing. If you decide to pluck any of the hairs off the lace that includes the wigs as well, please take caution that you run the risk of tearing the lace if improperly done. Seek professional help in this matter because this is not Sultresss responsibility if something bad happens. These are delicate units and you need to treat it like a baby. The more you care for them the longer it'll last.
