The Afro Kinky hair is just like your regular 4b - 4c hair and the key to getting perfect long lasting extensions is by caring for them properly. Wondering how you can do that? Not to worry, I will be sharing some great tips on how to care for your Afro Kinky hair.

General Care

You should think of your Afro Kinky hair to be just like your natural 4b or 4c curls. Your natural kinky hair is considered to be delicate and fragile out of all the hair types. Just like your natural hair requires gentle handling and care in order to thrive, so do your Afro Kinky hair extensions. 

It is important to remember to keep your Afro Kinky hair moisturized with oil free sprays or moisturizers. Applying products containing alcohol is not recommended as it tends to dry out the hair.

Styling Steps

To ensure you get the absolute best use of your Afro Kinky hair, here are some styling tips and tricks you should keep in mind:

 

  • Detangling your Afro Kinky hair
  • Washing your Afro Kinky hair
  • Conditioning your Afro Kinky hair
  • Deep conditioning your Afro Kinky hair
  • Styling your Afro Kinky hair
  • Curling your Afro Kinky hair
  • Using heat on your Afro Kinky hair
  • Dyeing your Afro Kinky hair

You can detangle your Afro Kinky hair

Detangling your Afro Kinky hair often shows the difference between a hot mess and a well maintained hair. To prevent tangled hair, we recommend that you detangle your Afro Kinky hair often. To detangle your Afro Kinky hair, apply moisture to the hair first and finger detangle or use a Denman brush. 

You can wash your Afro Kinky hair

You can co-wash your Afro Kinky hair. However, you should not use a shampoo for this step, a better option is to use a conditioner or a co-wash product. A constant use of shampoo on your hair can strip and damage your hair because of the harsh chemicals contained in them. Your conditioner or co-wash product, on the other hand contains natural oils which cleanse your hair thoroughly, adds shine, moisture and softness. Regular cowashing of your Afro Kinky hair would ensure it is much easier to manage or style and prevents it from getting frizzy.

You can condition your Afro Kinky hair

It is totally okay to condition or co-wash your Afro Kinky hair after every 10-15 wears. Cowashing is an excellent way of bringing life back to your Afro Kinky hair. After you are done cowashing, allow it to air dry or use a diffuser.

You may co-wash your Afro Kinky hair before use.

 You can deep condition your Afro Kinky hair

After co-washing your Afro Kinky hair you can follow it right up with a deep conditioning routine. You need to deep condition thoroughly using oil. The oil is very essential in sealing in moisture into the hair.

You can style your Afro Kinky hair

To style use a leave-in conditioner and water mix. Spritz all over the Afro Kinky hair, then finger comb or use a Denman brush, whatever works best for you.  

Here's how you can style your Afro Kinky U-part wig as twistouts:

 You can curl your Afro Kinky hair

You can go ahead and whip out your curling irons to curl your hair in whatever look you prefer. You can try twistouts too. Twistouts is an excellent and heatless way to get your curls popping too.

You can use heat on your Afro Kinky hair

Our Afro Kinky hair extensions are 100% natural and using heat or other styling options are allowed on them. However just like your natural hair is prone to heat damage, the Afro Kinky hair is also prone to heat damage and loss of curl pattern. To prevent this from happening, do not expose your hair to excessive heat and always use a heat protectant if you have to apply heat to your hair.

You can dye your Afro Kinky hair

You can only color or dye your hair to suit your preferences with the help of a professional colorist. Before dyeing your Afro Kinky hair, we recommend doing a strand test first to check if your hair can handle it. The hard chemicals in dyes or bleaches can weaken the hair shaft or alter your hair's texture. If you eventually color or dye your hair, remember to deep condition frequently, keep it moisturized and show your hair lots of love.
