Being someone who loves and cherishes all things weave and weave related, I wanted to share how I revived my hair!
During the Fall time I purchased some hair from Kendra P., Miink Brazilian Hair Company and saved it to reuse for a rainy day! So I’m going to give a quick recap of how to bring your extensions back to life! (I cannot guarantee results just in case your hair does not turn out as expected).
First, I prepped my hair by removing any old thread and combing the extensions from the weft to the ends. I also took a big pot and began to boil some water while I work on the extensions.
I then washed and conditioned all of my hair gently in warm water with organix “Coconut Oil” Shampoo and Conditioner. Normally I like to solely cowash my hair and not condition but in this instance I used both since it hasn’t been used in some months. You can purchase Organix products from Target, Walgreens, Walmart, etc. You can also purchase just a cowashing product as well, Pantene is my favorite.
By the time you finished washing all of your extensions, your water should be boiling now. I added 2 scoops of Silicone Mix into my boiling water. I carefully added all the extensions to the boiling water. Once submerged, I let the hair boil in the mixture for about 15 minutes.
I removed all the extensions and wanted to make sure my hair was silky and shiny. To do this, I took a couple ziplock bags and divided the hair up into the bags. Then I filled the bags with a couple squirts of Pantene conditioner. I made sure there was conditioner covering the hair and closed the ziplock bags. I let this sit for about three days and rinsed and let my hair air dry over night.
My hair definitely was silky smooth and even now, it has been a week since my hair has been installed and it is still flawless and easy to manage. It’s not tangling and losing its luster. I recommend this method if you have some hair you invested in and can reuse, do it!
