More importantly, it can hide your natural hair under the wig and allows your natural hair to lay flat to avoid looking lumpy, particularly for those with thick hair. Then we will give you some professional suggestions and guidance about how to keep your cornrows fresher for longer, how to wash and take care of cornrows, and how to avoid damage and potential 30 inch 613 wig loss.

It's common to see women put their hair into cornrows under the 5x5 lace closure wig but do nothing to take care of them for a long time. Here is a guide you can use to wash your cornrows without unraveling them or causing frizz in this process. 

1. Before you start, mix your sulfate-free shampoo with warm water and your favorite oil into a spray bottle and then shake evenly it to get a runny consistency. 

The sulfate-free shampoo can prevent your scalp from becoming irritated and may stop your curly headband wigs from becoming frizzy and easily breaking. Coconut oil and jojoba oil is suitable for all hair types. If you have dandruff, almond oil will work well. 

2. Run your cornrows under warm water to open up your cuticles, and rinse the initial dirt out of your hair.

3. Shake your spray bottle and spray it generously onto your cornrows and scalp. Next, use your fingers to gently massage each cornrow until all of them are lathered.

4. After all, Leaving shampoo in your hair could create residue build-up from the chemicals in your shampoo, thus irritating your scalp.

PART TWO Conditioning Your Cornrows

1. At the same time, you must make sure your conditioner mix has to have a little thick consistency so it doesnt drip over you while you wait for it to get absorbed into your hair.

2. Apply the conditioner on your scalp and cornrows evenly and make sure all cornrows are covered up. Dont forget to gently massage it in slow vertical motions from the hairline to the nape of the head.

3. Cover it up with a shower cap or plastic bag, which will help your hair retain moisture and stop the water that would normally evaporate from escaping.

If you dont have a plastic bag or a shower cap you can use a grocery store bag as an alternative. Do not leave the conditioner on your hair for longer than 20 minutes, otherwise, your hair will become brittle.

4. Rinse off thoroughly the conditioner with warm water to remove any buildup and pat and dry your cornrows with a towel or an old t-shirt. The next step is to wear a shower cap until your cornrows are completely dry.

PART THREE Moisturizing Your Cornrow

Mix leave-in conditioner, oil, and water in a spray bottle and shake well, which will leave your hair moisturized and shiny. Spray your cornrows with moisturizer gently to make your hair damp with moisturizer. Wrap your hair with a silk or satin scarf to smooth your hair down while it dries, reduce moisture from getting out of your hair, and maintain volume.

Unlike cotton, a silk or satin scarf will not absorb the natural oils of your hair to prevent your hair from being dry and will allow for less friction between your hair and pillow as you sleep to avoid tangles or knots.

Of course, you can also use a satin or silk pillowcase as an alternative to a headscarf. You can find satin and silk headscarves at beauty salons, certain department stores, or online boutiques.
