Wrap hair at night with a silk scarf and Stocking to hold down the scarf.
If your weave is curly then braid 4 sections of the weave at night to ensure no tangling
Depending on the quality of your extensions wash as least as possible.
If extensions are Indian remy or top quality,aim to wash once a week.
If your extensions are yaki or average grade of human hair i recommend not to wash at all, this is because cheaper extensions have a silicone coat over the hair so once you wash it it will become very hard, course and matted.
Remember that extensions, as well as they are done are never your real hair. You must treat them with a lot of care and be very gentle.
Try to only style weave using heat maximum twice a week
When sleeping ensure closure piece is held down firmly, closure will flatten with time
As extensions have been cut at the track, a little bit of shedding is normal
Try not to pull your weave back into a pony tail too much or too tightly, always be conscience of your front baby hairs
At least once a week go through the rows of your braid base and gently apply moisturising hair and scalp cream (eg, Mizani cream, Coconut oil, Shea butter, lotion)
Dont put any form of grease of or oil on your weave ( eg olive oil sheen, polish) This will make it look cheap, synthetic and very heavy.
If your weave is curly apply small amount of lotion in palm of hands and rub all over hands so it’s a thin layer of product, Loosely apply to hair to maintain curl
Full head weaves should be kept for max 6 weeks
Natural part weaves should be left for 5 weeks ( try not to straighten your top natural hair too much)
Track Extensions should be re done every 6 weeks ,but if you want to keep them for a 2 months you can just ensure the root is not tangling.
When removing weave get a girlfriend of partner to do it so you’re not cutting your own hair
Lift thread with an end of comb and then cut, do not pull out weave.
Once again be very gentle
When removing braid base take your time and be patient ( always remove hair on your day off)
Steps of washing Full /natural part weave:
Have a shower and let the warm water soak through your scalp to relax and clean. Avoid rubbing the hair in a rough motion.
If the extensions are a good quality use shampoo and conditioner, if average quality just small amount of conditioner
Always avoid rubbing the base cornrows as it will cause the weave to drop faster and may cause breakage
Once conditioner has been applied rinse out, again do not rub hair
Towel dry hair is a down wards motion and always brush hair with a paddle brush
When brushing hold the train firmly with your palm , then brush from ends up
Ensure all under braids are completely dried, if they haven’t dried in 1 day get a blow dryer and apply hot air over braid to dry
If hair is top quality blow wave dry after a few hours and proceed to styling with iron
