Hello everyone! Have you ever been in really need of some weaves, but did not have enough to pay for new hair bundles? If you have some old virgin hair weaves that have been worn for a few months, you can easily revive them back just following this article guide.
You can do some easy work to bring these old weaves back. First, wash and deep condition the hair. Use your favorite shampoo and deep conditioner, personally I like TRESemme Moisture Rich shampoo and I use Silicone Mix to condition the hair.
Cover the weaves with conditioner in a plastic bag over night. Rinse off the deep conditioner and let the hair air dry because blow drying will damage your hair.
Do not worry what the hair will look like when it is dry, just install and go to work.
Once the hair is dry, blow dry with a paddle brush for about 15 minutes.
Place some serum oil and liquid in your hands and rub into the weaves.
Flat iron the hair section by section. Lightly spray the hair with liquid shine or oil before flat iron.
When your virgin hair weaves gets older, it is much harder for them to hold curls. You need to wear a sleek part down the middle. Wrap your hair every night and wear a satin scarf.

Virgin Hair Extensions
Virgin hair is collected from one donor, it has never been processed, with cuticles facing the same direction. No treatment has been done to achieve a curl or other textures. Virgin hair could be dyed, bleached and treated like your own hair.
Virgin hair comes from one thick ponytail from a single donor who never apply chemical on his hair. Because it is virgin hair, it needs high maintenance, the same way like you treat your natural hair. Our Brazilian hair is regarded as the best virgin hair because it has never been chemically treated.
Beauty Supply Store Hair Extensions
These are extensions purchased from a beauty supply store, the hair has been treated to look like the way it does. Fillers contain plastic, you will sometimes see random colored strands in one bundle. BSS extensions will look great within three weeks. Silicon processing has been done to the hair to make cuticles appear to be aligned, however, it will not last long.
You will see beauty supply store hair says human hair blend, but it is blended with a futura fiber, any temperature higher than 300 degrees will fry and burn off the hair.
Remy Hair Extensions
Remy hair will go straight down when all cuticles of the hair are facing the same direction. Maybe the hair was processed before, our Brazilian hair extensions can be considered as remy because wefted Brazilian hair bundles are facing down and have been steamed with bamboo.
Non-remy hair is usually collected from many donors, you will not know which direction the hair was cut. Under this collection method, the direction of hair cuticles is mixed, there will be massive shedding, tangling and matting problems. To solve such problems, hair suppliers will use harsh chemicals to strip cuticles completely first, then apply silicone to make the hair appear soft and silky. When you first feel the hair on hand, it will be very soft and silky, however, after a few times of wash, the silicone coating will fade, the hair begins to feel brittle.
Which Hair Extensions Should I Choose?
It is a good investment to buy good quality hair extensions, this will save you a lot of money in the long run. Here at New Star, we offer top grade human virgin hair that will last for years. However, if you are looing for quick hairstyle for a couple of days, then beauty supply store hair will work fine.
Curly hair weaves are one of the most popular hair types, there are curly hair extensions made of synthetic and virgin hair, real human curly hair weaves are thick, soft, silky in texture, minimal shedding and tangle free. Usually human virgin straight hair has minimal shedding, but curly hair will have a normal amount of shedding. Because weaves are made of true virgin hair, the hair needs a lot moisture and maintenance. To activate the curls, you will need to condition the weaves with a moisturizing conditioner often.
To keep your hair clean and soft, please co-wash it twice each week. Leave the hair extensions in the conditioner longer to get more nutrition.
Let your hair air dry naturally. Do not blow dry it, if you have to do, please dry it under a cold wind setting.
Before using heat tools, always use a protectant to avoid hair breakage.
When bleaching your curly hair extensions, please use a neutralizing shampoo to stop chemicals, and then use hair mask to repair the hair after bleaching.
Make braids when sleeping, so your curly or wavy hair will become more textured.
Brush your hair from bottom, then move up a little step by step. We suggest you do not brush your curly hair, just use your fingers to cross the hair.
