How much hair do I need? It usually takes about 2 packs of hair (8 oz.) to get a full head. To acheive a fuller look, 3 packs will do beautifully.
Can the hair be colored? Yes! It can be colored to your preference. However, keep in mind that once virgin hair is processed, it is no longer virgin. It is recommended that you get the hair colored or processed by a professional.
Can I flat iron or curl the hair? Your hair can be styled in many ways using heat styling tools. However, please keep in mind that everytime you apply heat to the hair, it damages the hair to an extent, decreasing the longevity of the hair. Stove top styling tools are too hot for the hair texture. Please use plug-in electric styling tools at the lowest heat setting.
What kind of hair care products should I use? Use quality shampoo & conditioning products. Cream of Nature's shampoo & conditioners work well for Indian hair. It is important to condition your hair as it keeps it soft and manageable. Styling products such as gel or hair spray can be used to keep the curls in place. Be sure to wash your hair on a regular basis & not leave these products in for a long time as your hair will appear limp, dull, oily, and tangle. Please avoid using heavy oil or styling products. Biosilk is a good product to use for shine and softness as it is a light oil (use sparingly).
How do I take care of the hair? Treat the Indian hair as if it is your own hair. Use quality products and wash it on a regular basis. Every morning, gently brush the hair starting from the ends towards the scalp. Never go to bed with WET hair. Sleeping on wet hair will result in matting. To avoid this, please make sure that the hair is thorougly dry before going to bed. Set the hair on rollers or braid hair will keep hair nice.
How long will the hair last? With proper care and maintenance, the hair should last up to 8 months or longer. Be sure to treat it like your own hair. Many people prefer Brazilian hair because it is unprocessed which makes it last longer than any other type of human hair.
