Hair Care Tips

Here are a few day to day hair care tips to keep your gorgeous hair looking and feeling healthy and manageable. We understand that you take pride in your investment with us, so we highly recommend that you follow the pre-installation and post-installation guide to help preserve your bundles, closures and units.

Pre-installation:

Upon receiving your package inspect your hair for any issues. If you happen to come across any problems please be sure to contact us immediately at https://elysianlace.com/contact/ . Note: Avoid cutting wefts unless you absolutely need to.

Straight Textures:
  • Wet hair using luke warm water .
  • Shampoo and Condition using premium products.
  • Using a wide tooth comb, gently comb hair from the tips up.
  • *** DO NOT MASSAGE HAIR. Massaging hair can cause frizzing and/or tangling.
  • Rinse THOROUGHLY using luke warm water. Failure to do so will result in tangling/ matting due to left over products used during washing.
  • Hang or lay on flat surface to let air dry.

Wavy Textures:

  • Wet hair using luke warm water .
  • Shampoo and Condition using premium products.
  • Using a wide tooth comb, gently comb hair from the tips up.

Curly Textures:

  • *** DO NOT MASSAGE HAIR. Massaging hair can cause frizzing and/or tangling.

  • Because alcohol products can dry out your hair, we recommend using an alcohol free hair product that works well with natural curly hair.
  • To enhance curl patterns gently scrunch hair.
  • Hang or lay on flat surface to let air dry.

Post-Installation:

Now that you have officially installed your hair here are a few things to avoid to insure your hair last:

  • Avoid excessive use of oily products or products that contain alcohol.
  • Avoid excessive use of heat when styling hair. Like your natural hair over heating or over styling hair can affect your hairs texture/pattern and may cause heat damage.
  • Prior to washing or co washing be sure to detangle hair always starting from the tips.
  • Protect your hair when you sleep! We recommend using something that is satin material to minimize hair strands rubbing together.
  • For curls specifically. Co-washing is recommended at least once every two weeks. Keep in mind that curly hair should stay moisturized but to a certain extent.
