WEAVE AND WIG MAINTENANCE
The best way to maintain the health of your weave or wig is to treat it like your own hair! Natural oils, deep treatments and cremes are some of the best ways to keep it from becoming dry or brittle.
Brush your hair twice a day, starting at the tips. When brushing, hold your hair in the middle. Gently and slowly brush out the tangles at the ends, working your way up to the top of your head.
Don't brush to vigorously as this will cause the hair to shed (curly hair will also loose its curl). A detangling brush or wide-toothed comb may be used to brush out severe tangles.
Always brush hair prior to washing it.
Gently wash your hair in warm water with shampoo, taking care to not scrunch the hair as well as this will cause tangling. If you have used a lot of product on your hair and it is not attached to your head, leave it to soak for 10 minutes.
Rinse the shampoo out of your hair thoroughly with warm water.
I recommend air drying your hair. Gently pat your hair with a dry towel and leave it to stand. If you use a blow dryer, always a medium heat setting.
Spray leave-in conditioner and brush gently. Don't tug on the hair as it may loosen the weft and cause shedding.
Deep condition the hair regularly to maintain its optimal condition. If heating tools are used frequently, do thes at least once a month. If the hair has been coloured or chemically treated, increase this to at least twice a month.
