Combing & Detangling
It’s all in the technique. Don’t rip your comb through your weave! Remember that the tracks are sewn onto your hair. The more you pull and yank through the extensions, the more you can damage your hair. You don’t want your hair to fall out from tugging on the extensions. As you would with your own hair, always detangle from the bottom up and preferably while wet.
Washing Your Extensions and Your Hair
You can’t wash your hair like you normally do. But make sure you wash your hair underneath too. Using a bottle with a nozzle attachment really helps. Add your favorite sulfate-free shampoo and mix with water. You can get the shampoo mix into all the different crevices and in-between your braids. After that, take your fingertips and lightly massage your scalp in between the braids. Rinse and repeat at least twice.
Drying Your Hair
If you take anything from this, make sure you dry your hair completely when wearing a weave after cleansing it. When you wash your hair and your braids get wet underneath, if you don’t let your hair dry completely, your hair will smell like mildew. Sitting under a dryer and letting your hair completely dry will combat that horrid smell (and potentially mold).
