In Kinky Curly or Deep Weave Hair Extensions, How To Define Curls:

In recent years, black women have preferred curly weaves to straight weaves. The natural hair movement, I’m sure, is a big driving force behind this latest fad.

The popularity of curly weave as a protective styling option will only grow as more women begin to wear their natural hair or use weaves to transition.

So, now that you’ve installed some lovely curly hair extensions, you’ve noticed that the hair behaves differently from your hair. Many ladies who have either always had their hair relaxed straight or always wear straight weaves are baffled by the fact that they don’t know how to care for curly hair!

Defining Curls

It’s simple to define the curls in your hair extensions; all you have to do is determine whether you want large, high-volume hair or ultra-defined, low-volume hair with little to no frizz.

High-volume hair is for individuals who are wild at heart and enjoy being the center of attention because you will get it whether you like it or not with hair like that! Low-volume styles with a lot of definition are probably better for the office, school, or any activity where huge hair would be too much of a hassle. Nobody wants their hair in their face when they’re playing tennis, right?

Big Hair

Curly hair, especially in humid circumstances, tends to ‘get bigger.’ Big hair tends to be less defined and almost always has some frizz. If you have kinky curly hair or deep wave weave and wish to make them bigger, simply shampoo and condition them. While the hair is still wet, detangle it with a wide-tooth comb and pat it dry with a turbine twist towel. Using a hairdryer with a diffuser attachment, dry the hair without using any product. When the hair is completely dry, you will notice a significant increase in volume.

To make your hair even bigger, separate the curls a little with your fingers; some frizz will result when you separate, but this only adds to the style’s charm. Be warned: this is not a style for the faint of heart!

Low Volume Hair

You can also go for a more defined style with less body if you want to try something different. Wash and condition your hair extensions again, detangling them with a comb while they’re still wet, and thoroughly rinsing.

Apply a modest bit of leave-in conditioner to damp hair before applying a big amount of a heavy gel product. The majority of ‘wet look’ gels or curl-defining products will do the trick. With your fingertips, rake the gel through the curls, making sure to coat each strand.

Allowing your hair to air dry will give you the finest results, but you may also use a hairdryer with a diffuser attachment. To avoid frizz, don’t touch the curls while they’re drying. Scrunch the curls once the hair is totally dry to remove any ‘crunch’ that the gel may have left behind. You’ll have a stunning head of curls that are lustrous and defined.
