Virgin hair is absolutely gorgeous and can change your appearance. You can find extensions to give you almost any look you desire. It is a fashionable statement and a lot of fun.
Virgin hair is unprocessed and completely intact. In order for hair to qualify as virgin it must not be bleached, colored, dyed, permed or processed with chemicals. The hair must come from one donor only with all cuticles fully intact. Hair that has not been exposed to drugs, cigarette smoke or blow dryers is preferred. Virgin hair is most commonly used in the construction of hair extensions, closure pieces and lace front wigs.
Virgin hair is easier to style because it has never been dyed or treated with chemicals. The hair can be easily straightened or curled with beautiful results.
The hair is of a better quality and has never been damaged or weakened. The texture and sheen is a higher quality that ensures your new hairstyle will look fantastic.
Virgin hair weaves and extensions are available in a wide range of hair types, colors and lengths. Virgin hair also can be blow dried, curled, washed, colored, straightened and permed. Finding the hair extension or the closure piece that is right for your hair is not difficult.
Hair extensions require special care in order to maintain their beauty and expected life. Hair care products containing sulfates or alcohol can harm virgin hair.
Water based products will add moisture to the virgin hair opposed to grease and keep it in excellent condition. Base your choices of shampoo and conditioner on your specific type of hair. There are products available for curly, deep curly, deep wave, frizzy and straight hair.
Each individual product caters to the type of hair for which it was designed. Filling a spray bottle with a moisturizing conditioner to use daily on your virgin hair is also highly recommended.
Use a moisturizing conditioner wash on your virgin hair before use. A wide toothed comb or paddle brush should be used to get out any tangles before the hair is washed. Cutting the wefts is inadvisable because it will cause shedding. The hair should be washed once or twice per month but do not over shampoo or the hair will become dry and brittle. If your hair begins to feel oily a clarifying shampoo will correct this problem.
Virgin hair should be air dried and any excessive water should be squeezed out. The hair should be brushed beginning at the ends and gradually worked up to the scalp. Any styling done with heated tools requires a heat protectant spray or serum that does not contain alcohol. Products containing an oil base or alcohol will cause the hair to fry.
At the end of your day wrapping or braiding the hair with a silk or satin scarf will help maintain the life expectancy of your virgin hair.
Virgin hair does take care but the results are worth the effort required. You can choose to look sweet, sexy, outrageous or have any look that appeals. You can add curl, length or body to your hair. The most important thing you can do is make sure the hair you purchase is high quality.
