Hair Care Guide


Looking for ways to keep your wigs and hair extensions looking as good as new? Raw hair from India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma and our Premium Virgin hair is some of the most superior quality, but it requires special care for your investment to last. Here are a few tips on how to properly care for Raw and Virgin hair, so that you can enjoy it for years to come.


Firstly, you should detangle the hair gently from the ends of the hair and work your way up by using a wide tooth comb or detangling brush.  For curly hair, wet the hair first before detangling. 

Detangling Raw Hair

Sulphate-free Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

Use sulphate-free moisturizing shampoo and conditioner products when washing your wig or extension pieces. Sulphates are harsh chemicals that strip away moisture and oils from the strands, leaving them dry and weak over time. 

Weekly shampoo and conditioning are crucial for keeping our Indian, Vietnamese, Burmese or Cambodian Raw Hair and our Premium Virgin hair looking its best. Fill your basin with warm water and add shampoo, dip the hair in and out of the water several times and try not to rub the hair.  Repeat the same steps with a moisturizing conditioner and apply a good amount.  Leave the conditioner on the hair for at least 30 minutes and detangle the hair again while the conditioner is on the hair.  Gently rinse the conditioner gently out of the hair with warm water.  We recommend air drying the hair.

We also recommend giving the hair an intensive treatment at least once per month.   

Air Drying and Light Oils

Avoid excessive heat styling as it can cause damage to the hair fibers. Instead, opt for air drying your hair whenever possible.  In between washes, apply a small amount of light oil, such as Argan oil, to keep your hair moisturized and add a natural shine. This will help maintain the health and integrity of your Raw Hair and bundles. We also recommend Regality Hair & Beauty's Hair Growth Oil to promote growth and thickness, see link -

Kinky and Curly Hair 

For our Kinky and Curly Hair, after shampooing and conditioner has been applied and rinsed out of the hair.  Gently remove excess water from the hair but make sure the hair is still wet.  We recommend sectioning the hair into 4-6 parts, then apply a curl cream to each section and gently brush the product through the hair with a Denman brush to create beautiful curls.  We recommend air drying the hair or use a diffuser.  Try not to manipulate the hair too much after the hair has dried to avoid frizz.  Each day you can refresh the hair by spraying the hair with water using a spray bottle.  No need to apply more product, as the product is still in the hair but you can apply a dry oil mist to add extra sheen to your hair.

Protective Styling at Night

Protecting your hair at night is crucial to prevent damage and maintain the sleekness of your raw Vietnamese straight hair. Before going to bed, wrap your hair with a silk or satin scarf to minimize friction and tangling. This will help preserve the smoothness and shine of your hair, ensuring it looks flawless every morning.  We recommend Regality Hair & Beauty's silk bonnets, see link -

Avoid Excessive Heat and Chemicals

Excessive heat from styling tools and harsh chemicals can cause irreversible damage to your raw Vietnamese straight hair. Whenever possible, minimize the use of heat styling tools and opt for heat-free hairstyles. Always use a heat protectant when applying heat to your hair and use low heat.  This will help preserve the integrity of your hair and prevent heat-related damage.  Additionally, avoid using harsh hair products that can strip the hair of its natural oils. Embrace the natural beauty of your hair and let it shine. 

Proper Storage and Care

When you're not wearing your wig or hair extension pieces, ensure that you store it properly to maintain its quality. Gently brush the hair to remove any tangles, then place it in our satin bag or wrap it in a silk or satin scarf. This will help prevent tangling and keep the hair fibers intact.
