  • If you see RAW in the product name, this is not necessarily virgin hair because Raw hair is a term to point out hair that is directly cut from donors and it is not distributed or treated to make hair extensions. Therefore, we can understand that Raw hair can be Virgin hair, Remy hair and Non Remy hair that still are not affected by humans’ hand or bleeding-edge technology.
  • Ask the hair salon via email or call if you’re ready to put the money in but you are not sure. 
  • Read reviews: Don’t overlook this, especially if you’re buying hair from a company for the first time. The customer reviews will tell you about the real quality of the hair. You need to find these reviews through the store’s website. You should also look for more reviews on sites like YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Google, and the product pages of the store you’re planning to buy.

Wash your hair in the direction of the hair, always use conditioner and rinse with water after washing. (The conditioner left on the hair will make the hair prone to dandruff).

Do not wash your hair too many times a week (best about 3 times). If your hair is dry, you can increase the number of washes by 1 and only use shampoos specifically designed for hair extensions.

Make sure you choose a shampoo that contains moisturizing ingredients. Shampoo moisturizes the hair as much as possible.

Gently comb hair

Combing is also an important step in virgin hair care. If you don’t know-how, your hair extensions are easy to break. If you buy Vietnamese hair, you only need to use your fingers to stroke it. Vietnamese hair is basically less frizzy even when blow-dried.

Because it will have a higher risk of falling and breaking hair but also helps the hair absorb more nutrition from the oily skin, making the hair look softer. 

However, you should brush gently, if you encounter tangled hair, you need to use your hands to remove it and use a specialized comb to comb it after connecting virgin hair.

Use conditioner and apply conditioner properly

As shared above, using a conditioner after washing is very important for hair. However, you also need to learn how to use conditioner properly when taking care of virgin hair.

This conditioner is like an outer protective layer covering each hair. This layer not only protects the hair shaft but also reflects the light from the sun, giving your hair a shiny look. 

The conditioner layer also contributes to the healing of the epidermis if unfortunately damaged.

When using conditioner, you should apply it from the roots to the ends of the hair.

Make sure to comb the conditioner thoroughly from the ends of each section down. Fold the towel and reconnect the extension cord. Allow an hour’s break. If you comb multiple types of hair at once, your hair will lose its hold. If your extensions get wet, don’t brush them as they will get tangled up.

Use heat properly

Hair extensions, even virgin hair, cannot be as strong as normal hair, so when using a dryer, you should only use it at a light level. 

One of the ways to help your hair stay in place when curling is to use heat, but if you are using hair extensions, you should limit it because heat at this time can damage the hair. 


What can I put on my hair every day?

Massage oil. You can massage your scalp and hair with coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, etc. This will promote blood circulation and add necessary moisture to the hair. Massage the oil into your hair, leave it on for at least an hour or overnight, then wash it off with a mild shampoo.

Minimum number of shampoos per week

Oily hair is no more than 1 to 2 times a week. It should stay in place for about an hour or two, but you don’t have to let go. When you leave the oil on for too long, you run the risk of breakouts as the oil can run down the skin and leave it on for too long without any real benefit.

Never brush your hair immediately after applying oil. 

You see, after applying the oil, the hair is more brittle and the scalp is much more relaxed. Brushing your hair too hard can cause your hair to break and fall out. If you want to brush your curls, start at the top and brush lightly on top.

How long can the balm be used?

Let the oil penetrate the scalp for 30 minutes. You can also leave it overnight, but don’t leave it for more than 24 hours as the hair will start to collect dust. Wash off the oil in the morning with a mild shampoo.

What if you don’t brush your hair?

Hair will inevitably fall on your brush when brushing and relaxing, but when you don’t, the daily natural bristles can build up and leak out in the shower. Don’t worry, it’s normal to lose 50-100 shares a day.
