Although weave hair is sewn into our natural hair, it cannot receive natural oil or nutrition from the roots of natural hair. Even if you care for your hair weave as if it were your natural hair, your weave hair will become dry, frizzy and brittle. Now, you might be wondering: how to get the frizzy out of weave hair.
Use gentle product to wash your scalp and your weave hair every 7 to 14 days, for gentle products will not strip the hair of moisture.
If your weave gets really dry, you can try conditioner.
- Wash as normal.
- Apply a thick layer of the conditioner to your hair.
- Let this conditioner sit for at least 5 minutes.
- Rinse hair thoroughly.
After washing, you can apply a smoothing serum to the weave, and then run straighteners through it to combat any frizz.
Use styling instruments like dryers or straighteners on low heat to reduce the amount of frizz in your weave. Do not use hot heat, for it will damage, burn and split your weave, and this damage cannot be undone until you have your weave replaced at the hairdresser.
