Classic Collection Hair Care
To properly care for your Runway Curls extensions, treat it like your own! With proper care, the Runway Curls Classic Collection can be reused over multiple installs.
Washing Runway Curls Classic
It is recommended to wash and condition Runway Curls Classic with a mild sulfate free shampoo and conditioner in cool water weekly. Make sure to detangle the hair with a leave-in conditioner and wide tooth comb prior to shampooing hair. Avoid rubbing the hair.
Drying Runway Curls Classic
Unless you are attempting to straighten the hair, do not blow dry the curls after washing. Allow the hair to air dry naturally as you would your own hair. City Afro - Let it air dry.
How do I comb the Runway Curls Classic
We recommend you comb the hair gently with a wide tooth comb or with a natural hair detangling brush. To achieve bigger puffier hair, use your fingers to pull the curls apart or for even bigger hair gently brush hair with the detangling brush starting from the tip to the root. City Afro - No need to comb or detangle it when in twists, twist out styles or left as an afro.
Detangling Runway Curls Classic
Like your own natural hair and any curly hair, hair may tangle with improper care or just because it is curly. Since this hair is 100% human curly hair and completely mimics our own hair, it is important that you care for it as though it grew from your own head. To detangle, put a mild wash out or leave in conditioner spray on hair section by section. Either finger comb with your fingers or use a detangling brush and brush from the tip to the root. City Afro - No need to comb or detangle it when in twists, twist out styles or left as an afro.
Installing Runway Curls Classic
Runway Curls come on a weft. We recommend doing a sew in with the hair. The hair can also be cut off the weft and installed via fusion or crochet or single braiding. Note that you must get much longer lengths for single braiding methods as hair will lose some length from being cut off the weft. City Afro - This hair is great for installations by braiding, crochets, twists and twist outs.
How many bundles should I use for a full head
For the Classic Collection 2-3 bundles should suffice for a full head. If you want it big, we suggest 3 bundles. If you want your look not so full, then 2 bundles should be enough. The longer the length of the hair is, the shorter the weft is . Therefore if you are getting a 26" Moulin Rouge, for example, and want it really full, you may have to consider 4 bundles. If you have a lot of space on your head, aka a bigger head, you may also want to lean towards 3 bundles. City Afro - Use 5-8 Bundles.
What lengths are available?
Dirty Girl and Rude Gyal come in 12" to 18". Playboy and Messy B come in 20" to 26". Moulin Rouge comes in 12"-26". City Afro - Hair comes in one length of 22", but can be stretched and attached to each other to create very long lengths like 36"!
Can I reuse the hair?
With proper hair care and maintenance, Runway Curls can be used multiple times. If you plan to reuse, avoid cutting the hair off the tracks. Sew the hair in circular patterns to avoid cutting the track. City Afro - Because it is bulk hair, we recommend to use it only once.
What colors do the Classic Collection come in?
This collection comes in a natural brown-back cover We do however, have custom coloring services that you can purchase a la carte.

Straightening the Runway Curls Classic
Runway curls can be straightened and then washed again to bring back to their original curl pattern. To straighten, condition and detangle the hair first as described above. Then, blow dry the hair on medium cool. Make sure to hold the dryer at least 10 inches away from the hair. Once the hair is dry, flat iron the hair with a good reputable flat iron piece by piece, until you reach your desired straightness. City Afro - We recommend no heat or straightening of the City Afro collection.
What Products can I use on this hair?
As you would do to your own naturally textured hair, use a sulfate free good quality line of shampoo an conditioner to wash your runway curls. Keep the hair well hydrated and moisturized with weekly washes and hydrating butters. You may use a leave-in conditioner or curl defining butter for more curl definition.
How do I know which texture is best for me?
