Hair Care

RAW Essence always washes your RAW hair prior to shipment so you can simply install your hair and go. Subsequently, before each and every installation you should wash and/or co wash your hair prior to installing.  

As for installation, use the over and out method when installing your hair avoiding pulling the needle through the weft. Although our wefts are custom made, we still advise that you care for them the best you can by utilizing the flip over method instead of cutting them in order to avoid shedding and weft unraveling. Not required, but you may also seal your wefts using a good quality weft sealant. After installation, be sure to brush your hair thoroughly in order to remove any loose hairs from installation.
