The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining Moisture in Your Kinky Curly Hair Bundles

The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining Moisture in Your Kinky Curly Hair Bundles

In hair math, moisturizing equals healthy, long-lasting, and vibrant Kinky curls.

For the excellent investment you’ve made by purchasing your Kinky Curly Hair Bundles, you need the labor of love to keep them from looking like a bird’s nest.

With the proper technique, carefully selected products, and a specialized care routine, your Kinky Curly Hair Bundles would be good enough to write down in your will and passed to the next generation. 

In this comprehensive guide, I will show you how to maintain the bounce, curl, and pattern in your kinky hair bundles.

First, you must understand that human hair extensions, especially the kinky curly type, are just like our natural hair but without direct natural nourishment from our scalp’s oils.

I’ve devised means to provide them with the much-needed hydration.

Shampoos and Condition Your Bundles

You have probably been picking out shampoo and conditioner by how pretty their packaging comes in, and while I am an advocate of vanity myself, if you want the curly extension you invested in to stand a chance of living out its appropriate life span, is it time to start looking at the ingredients that these products contain. 

My rule is to treat your Kinky Curly Hair with the same care as your natural hair.

One way to do that is by using shampoo and conditioners that are alcohol, silicon, and sulfate-free. 

While protein-containing products are suitable for our natural hair because they help maintain and revive our curl pattern, avoiding these products where your extensions are involved will make your bundles dry out and can cause matting.

You don’t want that.

Personally, sometimes it’s so difficult to find a product that doesn’t contain protein.

Most products come with little traces of protein.

If you’ve tried your best to find protein-free products and failed, you should return to the start of the aisle and look for a product with a small quantity of protein.

Kinky Curly Loves Co-Washing & Deep Conditioning

If you wear your Kinky Curly Bundles regularly, a co-washing your hair extensions/deep conditioning session every seven wears will keep it lush.

Co-Washing implies conditioner only. Like the meaning, you only use conditioner for washing.

You will always go right with letting your extensions sit in products rich in shea butter, coconut, or avocado oils, avocado oils, or a combination of all three if you’re lucky.

This is a great way to remove any buildup of products left in your hair, giving it a fresh start. 

Kinky Curly Bundles Hate Too Many Products!

In a bid to go above and beyond for this asset you plan to include in your will, you may do too much.

You don’t need to buy all the sulfate and silicon-free products you come across if you already have.

You’ll see that all that grease may have made your hair tangle. If you find yourself in this situation, use the deep conditioning step above to make your hair look brand new. 

Avoid Heat and Air Dry

Nothing dries up all that coconut and avocado oil we’ve applied to your hair extensions faster than heat. You know what that does to your hair: it removes the curls and flattens them out, and the next thing you know, your curls are matted.

I stand for air-drying your extensions naturally by laying them on a cotton cloth to dry overnight or hanging them in a hair holder or a good old clothes hanger with clips, but if you must blow dry your kinky curls, use the lowest heat possible.

Hopefully, you won’t get any ideas about ruining your curls by straightening them out; however, if you want to renew them to make them more defined, a heatless styling method of perm hair or flexi rods will do the job.

Broad Tooth Brush or Finger-Brush?

These are good ways to retain the integrity of your curls. Many people argue that one is better than the other, but the two of them go.

For maximum results after finger detangling, use the wide-tooth comb to gently come through the strands while spraying it with light humectants to keep it wet and boost moisture.

Whether using a wide toothbrush or finger-brushing, always ensure your hair is damp when combing. Combining out your hair when it’s dry will only cause breakage, weave shredding, and loss of curl pattern.

Leave-in Conditioners

Leave-in conditioning is a must, as it gives your kinky curly hair extensions the shine and moisture they need.

You can use leave-in conditioners whenever you wear your extensions, as long as you do so in small quantities.

Avoid Touching Your Hair

It’s tempting to want to twirl your fingers in the lushness of your hair; it’s a diva, I know, but you should know that doing this can break the curls and suck up moisture. Do you want that? 

This may seem like TMI at first glance, but remember that this is the labor of love you need to maintain the moisture in your kinky curly hair bundles. Go through it slowly again if you must, and you’ll find that it takes almost no time and may be enjoyable.

Remember, your curls are an extension of you and deserve the best care.

Whether they are Kinky Curly Frontals or Kinky Curly Closures.

Embrace your natural texture, love your curls, and enjoy the journey to hydrated hair. Happy moisturizing!

Great tips for keeping kinky curly hair bundles moisturized! I’m definitely going to try using sulfate-free products and co-washing. Any recommendations on specific brands that work well?
