Hair Maintenance

 

Vixen Hair Maintenance

How you care for your extensions/wigs determines the longevity of its life span. Your hair care regimen will be dependent on which hair texture you purchase, however for the most part, all hair types require a basic routine of maintenance. 

Hair maintenance for straight, body, and loose wave textures:

  • Use a wide tooth comb for day to day maintenance. [Applies to straight, body wave, and loose wave]
  • When using a flat iron or a hot comb, apply a heat protective spray to hair extensions prior to using the flat iron or hot comb.
  • Wash and condition hair weekly. Vixen Company recommendation: Moroccan shampoo and conditioner or the Silicon mix shampoo and conditioner.

Hair maintenance for kinky curly textures:

  • Lightly wet hair, run fingers through kinky curly hair, and then lightly add serum to hair as normal routine in the morning and at night.
  • If sleeping in hair at night, do wear a hair bonnet 
  • Wash and condition hair weekly. Vixen Company recommendation: Moroccan shampoo and conditioner or the Silicon mix shampoo and conditioner.

Hair maintenance for body and deep wave textures:

  • Lightly wet hair, run fingers through kinky curly hair, and then lightly add serum to hair as normal routine in the morning and at night.
  • If sleeping in hair at night, do wear a hair bonnet and/or braid hair in small sections.
  • If you are looking to achieve a tighter or more define curl, wet hair, add mouse, and apply hair rod to hair in sections.
  • Wash and condition hair weekly. Vixen Company recommendation: Moroccan shampoo and conditioner or the Silicon mix shampoo and conditioner.

Hair tips for all virgin hair textures:

  • Shampoo and condition hair weekly with Luke warm water.  Do not use a comb when shampooing and conditioning hair.  Use a downward motion with hands to hair to wash and condition. Our recommendation is using the Moroccan shampoo and conditioner or the Silicon mix shampoo and conditioner.
  • When trying to revive the hair, use the Silicon mix argon oil shampoo and Silicon mix argon oil conditioner.
  • When bleaching hair, we recommend using the BW2 with a 30 developer with  processing time of no more than 30 minutes.  The less time the hair is with chemicals, the better chance your hair will retain it’s shine, curl pattern and healthy condition.  Always wash bleached hair with a shimmery lights shampoo and conditioner to take out the brassy color and lessen the orange color of your closure, frontal or bundles.  Always add leave in conditioner for softness and silkiness.
  • Note of caution to consumers when bleaching closures and frontals:  Closures and frontals will experience hair loss and or bald spots when closure and frontals are bleached.
  • To add curls or revive your curls without heat, wet hair, section hair in small sections to apply the hair rod.  The smaller the rod, the tighter the curl pattern and vice versa.  When hair is completely dry, remove hair rods from hair and lightly apply serum to hair for shine if needed.
