How to revive dry, matted, curly brazilian hair

August 23, 2014

Do you have old bundles of virgin hair that are matted & dry? You do? Well so do I.

So after having my natural hair out for almost two months I needed a break from styling it, like I just needed a break from dealing with it.

I decided to get a sew-in. I was planning on using a weave that I used last year which was the Brazilian Kinky Curly Hair I got from Amandine Luxious Hair. (Click here for her IG)

When I took my hair out of the bag it was in, it was matted, tangled & dry. I was kinda surprised but at the same time I knew that a year ago I didn’t really know how to take care of it, so that might have been the cause of it’s state.

So I have three bundles in total. (14″, 16″ & 18″).

My extensions looked pretty similar to the hair in the picture below.

I filled my spray bottle with warm water, The Ego Boost Leave-In Conditioner by Bed Head & a lil of my JBCO. (Jamaican Black Castor Oil). I saturated my hair with the mixture & started detangeling with my widetooth comb. It was soo easy, I wasn’t struggling at all. Then I proceeded to wash my hair with my Herbal Essence Honey Be Strong Shampoo to get rid of all the build up.

I applied a moisturizing mask with avocado & shea butter by Garnier Fructis.

This mask is for very dry, brittle hair.
I detangled the hair with a Denmann Brush.

I let it sit for 10 minutes, instead of 3 cause my hair really needed it.

After that I rinsed the hair and I co-washed it with the Garnier Fructis avocado oil & galambutter co-wash.

I waited for my hair to be damp and I spritzed it with my Creme Of Nature Strength and Shine Leave-in Conditioner with Argan Oil from Morroco.

My wefts had build up too so after shampooing I cleaned them by using water & applecider vinegar.

I dipped my cotton bud into the water & acv and started rubbing it on the weft. Squicky clean!!

Let it air dry and voila!!!

My hair is super moisturized, bouncy. My curls are super defined! One thing I’ve learned over the years when it comes to weaves: LESS IS MORE!
