How to maintain a straight human hair weave
Posted on May 23 2017
After spending a great deal acquiring some gorgeous human hair extensions, you should certainly have one thing in mind – how to take care of your weave. Straight hair extensions usually require less maintenance compared to the curly and wavy hair extensions. Let’s look at different ways to make your straight human hair weave look great for longer.
Proper installation is key
One key aspect that determines how well your hair extensions will last is how they are installed. To ensure that your straight hair weave doesn’t shed after installation, your stylist needs to observe the following:
- Avoid piercing the wefts or putting a needle through them. The thread should only be looped or tied under or over the weft. This is done to avoid damaging the weft.
- Avoid cutting the wefts. If you must cut the weft, make sure the end is sealed with a proper glue.
- Avoid splitting the wefts.
Taking care of your straight human hair weave after installation
Once the hair is installed, you still have a long way to go when it comes to maintenance. First, you need to look for a mild shampoo and conditioner, preferably the ones that do not have any sulfates or silicon. Using the wrong products will result in dry, tangled and damaged hair extensions.
How to detangle straight human hair weave
Do not shampoo your hair before brushing it to remove any tangles. Always use a wide tooth comb or a detangling brush that is designed for weaves. Comb the straight weave from the bottom up. Work with small sections at a time. Support the weave at the weft when brushing or combing.
Most importantly, buy a high quality human hair weave that you can use for many years from BeautyClick.
