How to revamp your old human hair and make it look brand new



Christmas is around the corner and everybody wants to look nice from head to toe. So, is your Christmas budget looking ridiculously high because you plan on getting new hair. Us women like to make a statement with our looks, most especially with our hair, but we all know good hairs don’t come cheap.

Quality human hair are quite expensive but can be reused with proper maintenance. So if you are thinking of trashing your old hair because it looks matted, tangled and worn out, don’t!!!

You can easily revamp that hair and make it brand new using the following steps

Step 1. Washing

What you need

  • Warm water
  • Shampoo
  • Bowl
  • Conditioner
  • Plastic bag
  • Comb/brush
  • Plastic bag


  • Use your hand to detangle the weave first to get rid of those silly knots and then follow with a wide tooth comb or brush. It’s important to detangle the hair while its dry so do not add water.
  • Roll up the hair in the same way it was bought (ie with all the wefts together) and put in a bucket or bowl of warm water with the weft part facing up.
  • Add shampoo and rub gently into hair. Rinse hair and gently squeeze out any excess water.
  • Apply your conditioner generously and put hair in a plastic bag. Let it sit for 20-30mins
  • Rinse hair with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean towel. Use your leave-in conditioner and hang to air dry. You can use a blow dryer (on low heat) if you must.

Step 2. Coloring

If you want to switch up the look of your hair, you can decide to color it. This is totally optional.

What you need

  • Hair Dye
  • Latex Gloves
  • Developer


  • First you need to choose your color of choice.
  • Gently comb through your extensions to get rid of any tangles and if you have any styling products on your extensions, it’s important to wash them out first as well.
  • After washing and combing out the extensions make sure they dry thoroughly. Allow them to dry overnight before applying the hair dye the next day.
  • Next prepare the hair color mixture. Put on your gloves and mix up the right amount of hair color and developer together. After pouring your hair dye and developer into the applicator bottle, mix them up together by shaking the bottle for about one minute.
  • After allowing the extensions to soak in the dye for the allotted amount of time, rinse the hair dye out of the extensions. Use warm water and afterwards apply conditioner.
  • It’s also important to comb through the hair extensions after applying the conditioner for even application and also to moisturize your tresses. After gently combing through the extensions, wash the conditioner out using cold water. This will seal in the hair color and make the hair shiny.

Step 3. Change hairstyle from straight to curly with curler

If you want to switch up the look of your hair, you can achieve curls with the use of rollers or iron curls. Once you’ve determined what styling method you want, this will help create the curl look you want, make sure you know the proper procedures for curling your hair.

What you need

  • Hair curler


  • Use the lowest heat possible when hot curling.
  • Contrary to what you’d do with your own hair, try to work in the largest sections possible.
  • When roller setting, use rollers that won’t pull or snag your locks too much.
  • Go light on holding products.
  • Don’t pull too hard on your extensions as you curl them.
  • Always curl human hair extensions while they are in your head, even when using clip-in hair pieces.

Step 4. Change hairstyle from curly to straight with flat iron

You can flat iron your human hair from curly to straight. Before getting started, make sure to have hair straightener with temperature control feature.

What you need

  • Flat iron


  • After ensuring wig hair are detangled, the first far most important step is to use heat protector spray regardless wig type.
  • First make sure your wig is completely dry. Use any blow dryer with temperature set not more than 250 F for good results.
  • Pre-heat your iron at a normal temperature that you use for your natural hair.
  • Take a thin strand from your wig hair at the bottom and start straighten.
  • Repeat this and straight it first from the bottom.
  • Now hop to the middle part. Straight all wig hair from middle portion
  • Get on the top now and straight the whole top section.
  • Leave them untouched for 5 minutes so that they dry completely.
  • As soon as they get completely dry, use a brush or comb to comb them evenly.
  • Spray a little bit of hair setting spray to fix them in the same position. Otherwise, they will turn back to their old look.
