Installing the Hair
Femi Hair wefts are machine wefted which are very secure and strong with double and triple stitching, however even the strongest wefts integrity can be destroyed by the wrong application of the products. We recommend that you do not sew through the weft, as this can destroy the stitching which may result in shedding. Preserving the integrity of the hair weft can also be done by not cutting the weft when applying the hair.
Do not massage (Circular movement of hands over hair) hair when shampooing this type of agitation will cause severe tangling. Rub and rinse hair in a downward or horizontal direction. Use your finger tips to message the scalp between the wefts of the hair. Rinse thoroughly; follow the same procedure used for shampooing when conditioning to be sure that all the shampoo and conditioner residue is washed out.
Some hair product leave a residue of film build-up over time we recommend using a clarifying shampoo monthly to remove all of the build up.
Shampoo the hair at least once a week, for an active life style i.e. exercising, etc. more frequent shampooing will be required weekly.
Combing and Brushing
Comb hair with a wig brush, or a very wide tooth comb, do not use hard bristle brushes with hair as it will cause breakage, comb or brush the hair starting at the end of the hair and work your way upwards to the weft.
Combing and brushing the hair while dry will cause frizziness, apply a small amount of leave in conditioner, and water to style.
Do not sleep with your hair loose and wet as this will cause tangling, braid the hair in a large braid and air dry.
We do not encourage frequent swimming in pools, or beaches, however should you do so, we recommend that you add a light amount of conditioner to hair, comb through, and pull hair back in one large braid before entering the water.
If possible keep hair above water, avoid swimming under water with loose hair, immediately following your enjoyment in the water, add a small amount of conditioner to hair and comb through starting from the ends and working upwards. Shampoo/condition/style as desired. Remember, chlorine and salt water can harden human hair, to reverse the effects, add moisturizer or conditioners to hair for 30 minutes and comb through. Repeat as needed to restore hairs natural luster.
