Always seek the help of a professional
When you are first installing the hair, make sure you seek the help of a professional. The secret, though, is to buy high-quality hair if you want it to last longer. Once you choose the hair, then you can also select the right professional stylist.
Keep the extensions clean at all times
Even as you aren’t washing the hair right this minute, you should make sure you maintain its cleanliness at all times. Don’t let the dirt build up on the hair because then that will make the hair become limp and weighed down.
Also, if you keep it clean, then you will make it easy to style the hair, thus making it as good as new.
Always keep the hair moisturized
Moisture is to your weaves what food is to your stomach. Always remember that so that you can choose only the best moisturizing products. The moment the hair lacks balanced moisture, it will dry out, start shedding and tangling. Keep the hair clean and nourished.
Nonetheless, you don’t want to moisturize the hair over since that will make it lose its luster and flawless finish too. If you realize you have over moisturized it, you can use the clarifying shampoos to clean it out.
You should, therefore, make sure you only use the right moisture for the hair.
Use the right drying method
You should always use the right drying method. The best choice is to use the air-drying process because it lets the hair dry as it is. The heat tools will often rip the hair of its natural nutrients, and that’s what you don’t want. Therefore, use the air-drying method for your curly hair.
Use the right comb and brush
At all times, if you have to use the comb, remember to use the right comb for curls and weaves. Tiny combs, for example, will pull the hair out, and you don’t want this to happen for you.
Other combs will often lead to shedding and tangling. Remember to comb the hair in small sections if you want it not to tangle.
When going to sleep
The one time that you will damage the hair more is during sleeping time. So before you go to sleep, you should brush the hair then hold it to a low ponytail. Then you should cover the hair with a silk or satin head wrap.
You should further remember to lie only on the satin or the silk pillowcase. When you wake up in the morning, then you will find that the hair retained its moisture. It will keep looking shiny and silky perfect. For you, it’s all about tousling it here and there then going about your day.
Don’t use the cotton material to cover your hair as that will absorb all the moisture leaving the hair dry and frail.
Go to the stylist
Remember to allow the stylist to help you check the hair. This professional can freshen the hair, making it look as good as new once again. Visit them for repairs and rejuvenation. With this, you will keep the hair healthy and new looking.
There’s nothing more important for your curly weave as daily care. It will determine how long the hair lasts.
You should have a leave-in conditioner for the same. It will keep your hair looking shiny, smooth, silky, and fresh.
Remember to cover your hair while you are going to sleep and when you wake up, the first thing you do is:
Hydrate the hair with some water, then spritz it with some oil or the conditioner just to bubble it up a little. Brush it if you need to or just tousle it and spray it with the setting spray then go out.
You have to make sure you hydrate the hair and moisturize it every day.
How to care for the hair when you are going swimming
Are you passionate about swimming? Well, you still can swim even with the curly hair on.
This is true if you can use a cap, making sure all the strands are tacked into the cap. If you, however, find that you can’t use the cap since you have a lot of hair, just swim.
Before you go into the pool, wet your hair with the clean water as this will help it not absorb the chlorinated water
Immediately you are out, wash the hair with a moisturizing shampoo. Condition it too using the deep conditioner. This is to nourish the hair making sure it doesn’t lose its structure.
Take time to air dry it or heat dry it. If you are going to use heat, though, make sure it’s at the middle-level heat.
Apply some oil for the shine and style it before you go about your business.
One thing, though, make sure you don’t swim every day.
Remember to trim the hair
Of course, even when we are talking of the weave hair, you will still need to trim its ends at all times. This means that you will get rid of the split ends. The trimming is excellent since it will get rid of the constant tangles.
Never brush the hair when it’s wet
You can use a wide-toothed comb to brush the hair. But you shouldn’t use it when it’s wet. Remember, you want to prevent breakages, so keep brushing wet hair.
