How to revive your hair extensions + Virtue Glamor update (5 months)

Hey guys, so I’m here with another hair post! I should confess that during my adventure, any type of hair care routines I had went out of the window! (link to my adventures! http://wp.me/p1uQOd-echttp://wp.me/p1uQOd-f4 ) Literally! No styling, no bendy rollers, no leave in conditioners, no oils- NOTHING. And after the heat, rain, beach? Results? – DRY, SHEDDING, TANGLED AND MATTED HAIR! PLUS MY COLOUR BECAME DARKER. And this was my beloved Peruvian tresses from virtue glamor.

After I got back and took out my sew in, the hair needed some serious attention and this post will let you know how I got my hair back to its ‘diva’ state and how its doing now. So it’s also a 5 month update. And if this can work for this hair am sure any sort of hair you have will take out great. I wish I took pictures of when I took the extensions out but nevertheless, I will try and be as detailed as possible.

Part 1

So first thing I did before washing was to saturate the hair with coconut oil. Then I detangled( 1st round lol) with herbal essence hello hydration conditioner. I left this on for 15 mins then shampooed with the hello hydration shampoo. I deep conditioned with beautiful textures rapid treatment deep conditioner for 25 mins by saturating again and putting in a carrier bag then placing it in cold water. Then rinsed and air dried.

After this process, I noticed the hair still had a few tangles, especially around the ‘beard’ area, however the shedding was reduced. But the hair was still dry.

Part 2

Again using coconut oil on the hair, I detangled again with the hydration conditioner, focusing more on the ‘beards’. I let the conditioner sit again for about 10 mins and co-washed the hair. Deep conditioned again with Tresemme breakage defence deep conditioner for 1 hour by placing the hair in a cooking bag (lol) and putting it in hot water. Afterwards I rinsed with cold water and noticed I got the silkiness and the softness of the hair back!

After air drying, no tangles! I re did my colour, using the same process as before ( check it out http://wp.me/p1uQOd-e1 ) but this time I only used the colour lock conditioner and hot water for 15 mins.

Final results- no tangles and my hair is back! The colour turned out beautifully again! I made my diva wig again and even before I added again product the hair is shiny and soft. There’s still a bit of shedding here and there but after the month it’s had I totally understand. I’m so happy the hair has bounced back and ready for action and it’s worth every penny I paid for it.
