HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR RAW LUXURY HAIR
At She'z Royalty Collection, we strongly believe that your raw luxury hair is an investment. For that reason, we strongly recommend following and utilizing the following hair care steps to maintain the quality of your raw hair, increase the longevity, and to ensure that your investment lasts for years to come. With proper hair care and maintenance, your raw hair is designed to last up to 5 years.
The first important step after purchasing your raw hair is to co-wash it before installation. Co-washing is the process of gently cleansing your hair using a moisturizing conditioner without the use of shampoo. We strongly recommend co-washing your hair using a deep conditioner before installation in order to gently cleanse and transform the raw hair to its natural state, to reveal the natural luster of the hair, and for sanitation purposes. After co-washing your raw hair, allow the hair to air dry only.
WASHING YOUR RAW HAIR:
♛ While washing your raw hair, we recommend using a sulfate-free shampoo to remove build-up of silicone-based styling products. (Products that contain sulfate are very damaging and extremely drying to the hair.)
♛ Use cool water to retain moisture. Do not wash your hair with hot water as excessive heat can lead to dryness. While washing always gently finger-comb your raw hair in a downward motion and do not scrub or rub the hair together.
A favourite shampoo of ours that we recommend is the Pureology: Hydrate Shampoo as it is 100% vegan and sulfate-free.
♛ If you are washing your closure or frontal, please VERY GENTLE as the lace is very delicate and can easily rip and/or tear if you are not careful.
♛ After washing your raw hair, we strongly recommend deep conditioning your hair using a high-quality deep conditioner. A favourite conditioner of ours that we recommend is the Pureology: Hydrate Conditioner as it is 100% vegan and sulfate-free.
♛ After rinsing out the conditioner, use a wide-tooth comb to gently brush your hair while it is semi-dry. Do not pull or tug on the hair while it is wet.
♛ Always allow your raw hair to air dry instead of using heat styling tools to maintain the longevity of the hair. We recommend letting your raw hair dry on a towel or flat surface.
We do not recommend sleeping on wet hair and we do not recommend sleeping with your hair extensions out. Before bed, braid your hair into a loose braid towards the back of your neck. Place a satin bonnet over your hair or tie your hair neatly using a satin scarf to prevent your hair from tangling. Upon awaking, unravel your braid and gently brush through the hair working your way up from the ends to the roots.
DAILY & WEEKLY MAINTENANCE TIPS:
♛ Treat your raw hair extensions as an extension of your own hair and always use good quality hair products. Avoid using sulfate-based or alcohol-based hair products as these chemicals are extremely drying to the hair.
♛ Brush your hair on a daily basis to smooth out any flyways using a detangling brush. A small "dime-sized" amount of natural oils such as coconut oil or Argan oil may be used to help seal in moisture and for maximum hydration.
♛ Once a week it is recommended to use a clarifying shampoo on your hair in order to remove any product build-up. A favourite product of ours that we recommend is the Live Clean: Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo which is 98% plant-derived and is both sulfate-free and paraben-free.
♛ We strongly recommend to deep condition your raw hair at least once a week to keep it nourished and healthy, to restore smoothness, and to maintain longevity and manageability. Deep condition for at least 4-6 hours or overnight for best results. A favourite product of ours that we recommend is the It's A 10: Miracle Hair Mask as it is deeply nourishing and is both sulfate-free and paraben-free.
♛ We strongly recommend consulting with a licensed professional colourist before bleaching, coloring, or chemically treating your raw hair.
♛ As with your own natural hair, excessive heat styling will eventually cause damage. Therefore, when using heat styling tools, always be sure to use a medium to low-temperature setting. In order to preserve and extend the longevity of your raw hair, we strongly suggest using our Prep & Protect Crown Polishing Spray that protects your hair against heat damage up to 450 degrees. You can shop our Prep & Protect Crown Polishing Spray here.
CURLY HAIR ROUTINE:
♛ We strongly recommend conditioning your raw curly hair on a DAILY basis as curly hair tends to dry out more quickly if it is not kept moisturized.
♛ Create a conditioning solution by mixing lukewarm water and leave-in conditioner together in a spray water bottle. Generously spray your curly hair with the conditioner solution. A favorite product of ours that we recommend is the It's A 10: Miracle Leave-In Product as it is both sulfate-free and paraben-free.
♛ Afterward, apply a "dime-sized" amount of any natural oil such as coconut oil or argan oil to help seal in moisture. You may also use a leave-in conditioning spray specially formulated for curly hair. Careful not to use too much product to avoid weighing down your hair extensions.
♛ After washing your curly hair, we strongly recommend using a wide-tooth comb to gently comb out any tangles while the hair is still damp. Do not comb your curly hair while it is dry in order to avoid ruining the curl pattern.
♛ We strongly recommend avoiding using any heat on your curly hair. If you would like to define your curls for a special occasion, then you may use a diffuser on a low-temperature setting.
♛ By utilizing the tips above, your raw curly hair will be left deeply nourished, hydrated, and looking its best.
Never forget to condition, condition, condition!
FREQUENTLY ASKED HAIR CARE QUESTIONS
Does She'z Royalty Collection Hair Shed?
Any hair that has been manufactured to be stitched on a weft is entitled to experience minimum shedding which is absolutely normal. However at She’z Royalty Collection we maintain a very high level of quality assurance and our wefts are double stitched to ensure there is very little to no shedding. If you do experience slight shedding (a few strands) please be rest assured that this is completely normal and there will never be a noticeable or drastic decrease in density or volume.
How long does She'z Royalty Collection hair last?
At She’z Royalty Collection, each strand of our raw hair is 100% “pure and unprocessed” meaning that it has never processed with chemicals or steam and has never been dyed, relaxed, coloured, bleached or chemically altered in any way. With proper hair care and maintenance, our raw hair is designed to last up to 5 years.
Why are one of my bundles a slightly different hair colour/hair pattern?
Due to our hair being 100% pure unprocessed raw hair, in some instances you may detect slight colour discolouration and/or a slightly different hair pattern from each bundle. This is due the hair being sourced exclusively from one donor only. Each bundle of hair is unique and comes from one separate donor, therefore, each donor will not have the exact same shade of hair colour or hair pattern. Be rest assured this is completely normal and this is the nature of pure unprocessed raw hair.
Can I color, dye, or bleach She'z Royalty Collection hair?
Yes! Our raw hair can be coloured, bleached, or dyed to any shade you desire! However, we strongly recommend consulting with a licensed professional before bleaching, colouring, or chemically altering your raw hair. She'z Royalty Collection is not liable for any damaged hair extensions after they have been dyed, bleached, or chemically altered by a third party. Please note that should you decide to bleach a curly/wavy texture, there is a chance that it may slightly loosen due to chemically altering the natural curl pattern. Please be rest assured that this process is completely normal when colouring curly hair.
We do not recommend bleaching our 613 blonde hair as it has already gone through an extensive bleaching process. Should you wish to dye or bleach your blonde hair, we cannot guarantee the outcome and will not be responsible for any damage that may occur.
Should I co-wash my hair before I install it?
Yes! We strongly recommend to always co-wash your raw hair as the first important step before installation. Co-washing is the process of gently cleansing your hair using a moisturizing conditioner without the use of shampoo. This is done to gently cleanse and transform the raw hair to its natural state, to reveal the natural luster of the hair, and for sanitation purposes. After co-washing your raw hair, allow the hair to air dry only. Click here for a step-by-step instructional video on how to co-wash your hair extensions.
Should I seal my wefts/knots?
Can She'z Royalty Collection hair blend in with my natural hair?
Yes! Our raw hair can easily blend with every texture of hair from every ethnicity. If you don’t feel your natural hair will blend or your hair length isn't long enough to blend in, we recommend purchasing a closure or frontal.
Can I use heat styling tools (blow-dryer, flat iron, curling wand, etc.)on my raw/virgin hair?
Yes! Our raw hair can be curled, straightened, blow-dried, or styled with any heat styling tools just like your own natural hair. However, in order to preserve and extend the longevity of your raw hair, we strongly suggest using our Prep & Protect Crown Polishing Spray that protects your hair against heat damage up to 450 degrees. We also recommend using heat styling tools in moderation and limit the amount of heat you apply to your raw hair. You can shop our Prep & Protect Crown Polishing Spray here.
What hair products can I use on my raw hair?
Any hair products containing alcohol or sulfate can severely dry the hair out - leading to frizziness, matting, or tangling. We believe that your raw luxury hair is an investment, therefore, it's important to invest in good quality hair care products to maintain the longevity of your raw hair and keep it looking its best. We strongly recommend using hair products from our Luxé Hair Care Collection as all of our products are 100% alcohol-free and sulfate-
Will my raw hair revert back to it's natural state after being washed?
Yes! Due to it's high quality, in most cases our raw hair will revert back to it's natural state after being washed. Please note, looser wavy textures may tend to loosen a bit after each wash. Please be rest assured that this is completely normal as washing your raw hair will transform the hair to it's natural state.
What is the best way to brush my raw hair?
We recommend to brush your virgin hair daily and throughout the day with a wide tooth comb or detangling brush. When brushing your bundles, we recommend to gently brush the hair from the bottom up to alleviate added pressure on the wefts and to gently loosen and smoothen any tangles in the hair. When brushing your closure/frontal, we recommend brushing very gently to avoid ripping and/or puncturing the delicate lace. Please remember to brush gently to avoid breakage of the hair. Treat your virgin hair as if it were your own natural hair.
How do I sleep with my raw hair?
We do not recommend sleeping with your raw hair out. If possible, always sleep on a silk pillow with your hair tied neatly using a satin scarf or bonnet. If you are wearing clip-in hair extensions, please remove them before going to sleep. Avoid sleeping on wet or damp hair as it may promote tangling and/or matting.
Can I swim with my raw hair?
We do not recommend swimming with your raw hair or getting them wet (except while washing them). Chlorine from swimming pools, salt from ocean water, and dirt in all bodies of water can be damaging to your hair. If you plan on swimming, please wear a swim cap to protect your hair from the water.
