Weaves are awesome, and you are here because you know it! They can make your dream hair come true, and even win you umpty compliments. But, everyone who has ever used a hair weave would know that the mechanics of wearing one and maintaining one ain’t that easy.
1.Wearing Them Just Like That
You heard it right. You don’t just wear your hair weaves as they are. The whole point of investing in good quality hair is to have it look as glamorous, and natural as possible. It is important to get a good haircut that suits you and blends in with your natural hair. For instance, if you are looking to achieve long, sleek straight locks, you definitely do not want your weaves to hang uneven at the ends. At the time of sewing your hair, we suggest getting your stylist to give you a haircut that makes your weave achieve the right blend and flow it needs.
2.Keeping them in too long
Weaves made of Indian remy human hair are considered the best quality on the market. If that’s what you’ve invested in, your weave should last a year with proper maintenance, and across multiple installs. It is advised not to leave your weave in beyond 8 -10 weeks, as it can start looking limp and lifeless while also causing your new growth to mat and loc. It is important to take off the weave and let your natural hair breathe.
3.Forgetting Your Natural Hairline
Leaving your natural hairline out will make your weave look unnatural. To achieve the most natural and gorgeous look,it is suggested that you should apply relaxers to your hairline and style it to make it go with your weave. Bonus point – Relaxer kits are pocket-friendly!
4.Not Keeping a Tab on The Odor
You hair weave can smell too, just like your natural hair. It deserves the same treatment like you give your natural hair. Unfortunately, it is a little difficult to detect a foul odor, especially since you are used to wearing it for long periods of time. It is therefore critical to keep tabs on the odor every now and then, and to wash your weave twice a week.
5.Buying Synthetic Hair
The last but most expensive mistake people make is to save a few bucks by investing in synthetic hair. Human hair weaves cost a little extra, but it also lasts much longer. It can also be styled to taste without adverse effects. On the long run, weaves made out of human hair are a better investment.So you should invest in good quality human hair from a trusted source to achieve the perfect look you desire.

While a weave affords you a lot of versatility and protects your hair at the same time, you can’t neglect your own hair while wearing one. Contrary to what many believe, a weave is not a “set it and forget it” process. You should do your best to keep your natural hair as well as the weave in optimal condition.
Use these tips to keep your natural hair and weaves in shape. Shampoo and condition
1.You need to shampoo your hair on a regular basis. Concentrate the shampoo on your scalp and work it in with the balls of your fingertips. Then work the shampoo down the weave hair, but do not ball it up on the top of your head. Instead, work your fingers straight down through the hair to the ends. Allow the water to work the shampoo down. It is important to keep the weave hair as straight as possible to prevent matting and tangling. Follow up with deep conditioning.
2.Detangle your weave and secure it at night.Detangle your weave before and after washing with a wide tooth comb from ends to the roots, just as you would your natural hair. The weave should be secured at night, either under a satin cap or scarf.
3.Oil your scalp.Your hair and scalp still need nourishment. Work natural oils beneath the weave onto your scalp and massage them in. If the weave is made of human hair getting a little product on it won’t hurt it, but synthetic hair doesn’t require additional products, so you’ll have to be careful not to get oils on it.
4.Let your hair breathe. Take out your weave.Remove your weave after six to eight weeks. You start to compromise the health of your natural hair if you leave your weave in for too long. If you extend this time too much, not only will your weave begin to look old and ragged, your new growth may begin to mat and loc.
After the weave is removed
Gently detangle your natural hair before washing it. Spray water mixed with a conditioner or a bit of water and oil and detangle with your fingers before going back with a wide tooth comb. Let your hair rest. Weaves, braids, and extensions place stress on your hair no matter how much care is taken.
It is suggested that you should wait at least two weeks before installing another weave.
