How to Protect Your Natural Hair When Wearing a Human Hair Weave?

How to Protect Your Natural Hair When Wearing a Human Hair Weave?

May 22, 2019

Human hair weave may be a protective style, but that doesn’t mean you can just ignore your real hair while wearing one! Take care of your hair when wearing extensions so it grows out healthy and beautiful under the weave.

Here are some of the ways you can keep your hair well protected.

Prep Your Hair before Getting Extensions

Before you install a weave, make sure your natural hair has the right amount of hydration and moisture. Use a clarifying shampoo to clean your hair and rid it of any residue from your hair products. Then use a mask to deep condition it. The kinkier or tighter your hair, the more moisturizing it will require.

Keep Your Scalp Clean

Cleanse your hair regularly using a gentle shampoo when wearing hair weaves. Massage in the shampoo on your scalp and work it down the weave hair straight to the ends. Make sure the weave hair remains as straight as it can to minimize tangling and matting.

Oil Your Scalp and Spritz Your Hair

Your scalp and hair still require nourishment when beneath your weave. Work in light natural oils on your scalp, and use your fingers to massage them in. This should prevent dryness, itchiness and flaking. Don’t use heavy oils – jojoba, coconut oil and grapeseed should do the trick.

You should also regularly spritz with a water-based product your hair to keep up the hydration. Focus on getting this moisture to your scalp, but don’t over-do it. You don’t want your natural hair to stay damp underneath the weave.

Keep Your Edges Protected

Make sure your edges are as moisturized and well maintained as your scalp. Use  a good quality conditioner to ensure they’re protected.

Don’t Wear a Tight Weave

The tighter your Virgin Remy human hair weave, the more stress it constantly puts your hair under. Over time, weaves can even lead to progressive hair loss or traction alopecia. This is when the follicle releases at the root, causing irreparable damage. This kind of damage means your hair won’t grow back. That’s why it’s so important you don’t wear a too-tight weave, especially along the hairline.

Take Your Weave Off When It’s Time

Protective styles like weaves stop protecting your hair if you leave them in for too long. If you wear clip hair extensions, remove them before going to bed. Weaves should be taken off by six to eight weeks max, so your hair and scalp gets a break.

By that time, your hair will have grown from half an inch to an inch, and the weave will be hanging looser. If you take too long to take the weave off, it will start to appear old, and the new hair growing underneath could get matted.

 Once the style has been removed, get a trim from your stylist so the ends of your hair remain undamaged.

Use these tips to let your protective styles remain protective over time.
