There are a lot of stylists out here, but how many of them really take care of your natural hair, before you get a weave or a wig installation? It is always optional for a stylist to treat your natural hair, but most of the time we give them specific instructions on just the install “I’m here for a weave,” or “can you instal a wig on friday.” For most stylists, a treatment is another way to make more money, so they would gladly give you a treatment .
Anyways, I’m not here to talk about stylists and their duties, I’m here to give you tips on how to treat your natural hair and how to protect them edges, sis, because you want your natural hair to look as good as the weave and wigs. EVEN BETTER.
Before you install your wig or a weave, treating your hair should be a priority!
Firstly, you need to find an All Natural product, that works best with your hair (texture and pattern). Once you have secured the product, wash your hair every month or every six weeks. Be sure to deep condition and deep treat. To install a weave or wig, your braids should not be too tight, as this may result in hair loss, especially your edges. Make sure you oil your scalp before every install. Depending on the texture of your hair, if your hair is super dry, try to oil your scalp at least once a week. Oiling your scalp is only recommended only for the ladies who weave their hair.
If you are installing a lace front or a full lace wig, most of the time you’d need glue to hold the lace and to give it a more natural illusion. Be sure to NEVER PUT GLUE ON YOUR EDGES!! If for some reason glue gets on your edges on accident, use a little bit of oil to remove the sticky residue and rubbing alcohol to remove the oil. Now that you’ve had your schooling on how to treat your natural hair and how to maintain them edges baby, come to anyone of our many GLITZZY HAIR locations and secure your bundles and your wigs.!!
