Need Tips for Taking Care of Your Hair Under There?  Here’s How!

Part #2 The Install

By Janelle Sands, CURLS Educator 

 Tender, love and care is needed throughout the entire process of wearing hair extensions.  You’ve just learned about the first step, the Pre-Install and now you are ready for the Install.  Whether you rock a wig unit, u-part, sew in, clip ins, or a combination of sorts, taking care of what’s beneath is simple!  Start with the Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner to protect and preserve your moisture.  Then use a nourishing, organic based styling support product like CURLS Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste on your crown during the installation process. Here’s why:

  1.  The product serves as a scaffold, with great styling power, allowing you to reduce tension on the hairline and roots.  
  2. The product has an added benefit of the blueberry extract along your scalp, to strengthen the ability of the hair follicles for further hair growth.


What’s the Big Deal?

The BIG DEAL is this!  When you do not take extra care during the installation process, you could experience breakage at different parts of the process.  For example, installing with excess tension along the hair line, may not cause immediate damage, but over time, the hair follicles will weaken, resulting in traction alopecia.  Consistent tension, paired with the occasional itching and scratching that can accompany, could leave you will hair loss, a condition that does not come with an easy remedy.


Additionally, if you use products that are low quality for your hair, while your hair is tucked away and interacting with the products for a lengthy timeframe, you can miss out on vital nutrients that keep your hair strong and thriving.  A proactive approach is best when aiming for healthy hair.  Use organic based products to nourish and fortify the strands while they are hidden away and always take a gentle approach when braiding and preparing the hair for an extension style.  You will love the Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner for your hair under there, followed by the Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste. Trust us!  The Blueberry Bliss Curl Collection has something for every step.
