- Speak to your hair stylist about investing in a brush specifically designed for weaves to help prevent breakage.
- Use a width comb and gently comb through the weave to loosen any knots or tangles.
- Use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner every second or third day. Washing your hair daily strips it of natural oils and can actually cause you hair to be limp and greasy. You can use over-the-counter shampoos or salon shampoos. The important thing is using product that is sulfate free.
- Wash the weave starting from top to bottom by gently massaging the shampoo into the it. It’s important that you keep the hair straight while washing it. This helps avoid causing matting and tangling. Don’t forget underneath your hair.
- Use a good quality conditioner and leave it in for the recommended time before rinsing out.
- Gently towel dry the hair by blotting it – never rub or pull at the hair as hair is especially vulnerable when wet. Dry naturally or with a hair drying on a low heat setting.
