We share natural hair care strategies and techniques to help make curly weave hair care fast and less challenging. Private Stock Hair™ is your pure source of 100% unprocessed Remy human hair.
Caring for your Brazilian Remy human hair extensions and wigs is easy! You can wash, use low heat, style, swim, workout, dye, or bleach our virgin natural color hair products. PS Hair is masterfully crafted. It is not necessary to seal your wefts but doing so may increase longevity. We do not recommend splitting hair wefts or using hair glue during your sew-in weave service.
You cam help promote your hair growth and increase PS Hair longevity by limiting, or avoiding, color treatments and the use of hot hair styling tools.
You can minimize cutting the wefts during installation by using the fold-over method. And remember, the older PS Hair textures get, the better they will look! Different types of hair extensions generally require the same care but of course, the curl pattern for each may vary due to curling size and other processing.
Always use a high-quality moisturizing shampoo and a high-quality moisturizing conditioner to wash your hairpieces and human hair wig units. Heavy product use, over-saturating, may cause product buildup. Over conditioning causes the virgin hair to dry out and become unmanageable.
Dry and clumping hair extensions typically result from product buildup, product imbalance or improper detangling technique. Always secure hair when sleeping. Coat hair with a cream moisturizing conditioner just before swimming is salt or chlorine to help prevent tangling and keep your curls popping.
To correct product buildup on your curly natural hair extensions, simply shampoo your hair with a moisturizing gentle shampoo to remove the build-up. Follow the shampoo with a moisturized conditioner to ad moisture and definition to your curls.

Sew-in weaves (also referred to as "tracks") are the most popular way to use weft hair extensions. You can use hair wefts to create sew-in weaves or DYI wigs. You can sew or glue (not recommended) hair weave to a weave cap or directly to your 'braid down (braid pattern). We recommend that you sew around the hair weft as much as possible to help prevent possible damage or weakness of your tracks.
It is also helpful to sew your wefts directly to a weave cap or weave sheet. Sewing wefts directly to your braid-down results in tension and stress on your hair follicle and strands leading to damage. For this reason, many women with thinning or fine hair find hair weave caps to be particularly helpful. Weave caps also tend to result in longer-lasting hairstyles and healthy growing hair when you practice good hair health.
Consider trimming your split ends every 3 months or as recommended by your trusted hair stylist. Routine hair trimming removes damages ends and typically result in healthy growing hair. Do not leave a hair weave in for more than 3 months. Remember to keep your scalp moisturized beneath your weave. To prevent that unmistakable and preventable "weave smell", keep your hair clean and remember to always thoroughly dry your scalp so as to prevent bacteria and mildew; (that wet dog wrapped in old weave smell). You should give your hair a break from hair weaves periodically. PS Hair wigs, kinky curly bulk hair, or clip-in hair extensions are all good options.
Thinning edges, receding hairline, hair loss? Firstly, seek an examination by a licensed hairstylist, and/or dermatologist to determine, or rule-out, underlining medical conditions as a cause for your hair loss. Hair loss sadly can be much more than self-imposed via tension, stress, hats, product use, hair care, and/or choice of hairstyle. Private Stock Hair™ always wants you to 'look good but feel better'! Make sure that you don't have a medical condition going on.
If your braid-down is too tight, it will only get tighter when the tracks are being sewn in. So, the tension on your hair is very often the culprit of thinning edges. Speak up when your braider is pulling your brains out. Speak up when your sew-in hurts or stings. Clue... If you need Tylenol before or after your weave install... consider making changes and new arrangements for your next install quickly! Stop handling your baby hair swooped and laid with products containing alcohol. Take it easy snatching your ponytail and updos. Looking good today, but bald tomorrow, just ain't cute. Finally, if you tend to pick at your hairline, please try to identify your stress factors in your life and seek medical attention, change your diet to include healthier choices, and/or start exercising. We can’t always cut toxic people from our lives, but we can control how they affect us.
