How to wash your Crochet Hairstyle

by Umona Hair April 01, 2019

The question we most commonly get asked ‘can I wash my crochet hair once it’s installed?’. Our answer, ‘yes of course you can!’ So, let’s get right into how you can do this with these easy steps we suggest.

  1. If possible, avoid using water and use dry shampoo instead.


We Love: Shea Moisture Dry Shampoo

 We like Shea Moisture’s Dry Shampoo
  1. If you aren’t a fan of dry shampooing or you want a deeper cleanse, then you can go for a regular wash. However, do not use hot water as it may cause the hair to tangle and matt.
  1. Instead of using shampoo, use conditioner. A co-wash is recommended as it stops your hair from drying out as it would if you used shampoo


We Love: Shea Moisture Co-Wash Conditioning Cleanser

 We just love Shea Moisture


  1. If you must, you can carefully shampoo your hair (focusing on the front and your scalp) using a spray bottle mixture of shampoo diluted with water. Rinse away and be sure to follow with a conditioner to restore moisture!
  1. Whilst washing your hair, do not scrub. Allow the water to fall on your hair to wash away the shampoo or conditioner. Gently rub your hands through your hair to make sure you get all the product out.
  1. Once your hair is washed, lightly use a towel/ t-shirt to dab your hair. You can use a blow-dryer, on moderate heat, to quicken the process.
  1. Lastly, trim away any tangled ends and be sure to moisturise your scalp afterwards.

So, there it is. We would love to know if and how you wash your hair when protective styling. Drop us a comment below with your product recommendations.
