Indian weave hair extensions are relatively easy to care for. Like all hair extensions, Indian weave hair extensions do not receive moisture and nutrients from your scalp, so extra care must be taken to ensure that they remain nourished. The following tips apply to both straight and Indian wave hair. Where there is a difference, it will be noted.
- Brush the hair frequently (twice a day) and shampoo and condition it regularly. For Indian wave hair, brushing should be done lightly with a paddle brush or wide tooth come to avoid undoing the curls. When washing your Indian weave hair extensions, wash off deposits of hair products so that they don’t degrade the quality of your hair.
- Ensure that your weave is completely dry when you go to sleep because if you sleep on wet hair, you can tangle it and create a mildew type odor with time. For Indian wave hair or curly hair, braid your hair into medium to big sections to retain the waves and generally to keep your hair from moving about too much while you sleep.
- Comb your hair in the morning and start from the ends towards your scalp to prevent unnecessary shedding. Condition your hair at least once a week. Use a deep conditioner and avoid oily or heavy styling products.
- If you want to colour your Indian weave, do so carefully because the chemical processes that the hair will be exposed to can weaken and damage it. Have your stylist do this for your so as to avoid damaging your investment. Follow the above instructions and you will end up smooth, shiny, tangle-free and natural looking Indian hair all the time.
