Beauty Tips

KEEP YOUR HAIR SHINY & HEALTY

Your hair and scalp still need nourishment. Work natural oils beneath the weave onto your scalp and massage them in. If the weave is made of human hair, getting a little product on it won’t hurt it, but synthetic hair doesn’t require additional products, so you’ll have to be careful not to get oils on it.

KINKY TWIST TREATMENT

Wait at least two weeks after your hair is styled to wash it. This will help the hair set. Wash hair by placing an astringent on a cotton ball and rubbing it into your scalp. Use hair oil after washing your scalp with astringent. Place this on your scalp and on your hair to add some shine. Spray your hair with water, followed by leave-in conditioner two to four times per week. Recommends not using thick conditioner as this can build-up inside of the twists. Wear a silk scarf when sleeping.

STYLE YOUR CORNROW DAILY

Moisturize the cornrows and scalp regularly. Use natural oil-based cream or grease formulations to prevent dryness and scalp conditions such as dandruff. Look for moisturizers that contain oils such as olive and jojoba for best results. Apply adequate amounts of moisturizer without over saturating the hair and scalp. Consider your hair type to avoid weighing the cornrows down with excess oil. Your hair and scalp should have a healthy luster without appearing greasy or matted.
