Weave is really an amazing product. It has the power to transform a woman and give her tresses that she wants, and enhances the hair that she already has. Everyone that wears weave always wants to know the best products to use to protect their investment (and we all know that quality weave is an investment!). What a lot of weave wearers don’t think about is how to take care of the hair UNDERNEATH their weaves, which is just as important. Taking care of your own hair underneath your install is actually quite simple and can be done in 3 easy steps!
The first step to taking care of your hair underneath your weave is to shampoo it properly and thoroughly! It’s extremely important to shampoo your hair at least every two weeks, if not more. Remember to rub the shampoo into your scalp with your fingers – its not just enough to wash your weave – you have to wash your braids underneath your install! Second, you should condition your hair. You should use a dime sized amount of product but you should also ensure that you have thoroughly conditioned your hair. This is a very important step – your hair can easily get very dry underneath your weave, which causes it to become brittle and break off. This can easily be remedied by making sure that you thoroughly condition your hair. Third, its important that you dry your hair. While you should air dry your weave, you should thoroughly dry the hair underneath your weave by sitting under a hair dryer. If you don’t dry your hair, it is highly susceptible to grow mold and/or have a musty type of odor, which no weave wearer wants.
As you can see, its as easy as 1-2-3 to take care of your hair underneath your weave. By following these 3 steps, not only will you have the best weave out there but you will also maintain and grow the hair underneath your weave. Ladies, your weave is an investment, but the hair growing out of your head cannot be replaced. It’s important to follow these 3 easy steps to take care of your hair underneath your weave.
