Pat your hair dry after getting out out the shower. Always let your hair air dry. If you do blow dry your hair, do it on a cold wind setting with a round brush. Let the hair air dry completely before styling the hair again! Always use a heat protectant whenever you use heat on your hair to avoid breakage tangling and matted.
1. Natural Oils Sew-in Weaves
After the cleansing and conditioning, you need to seal in the moisture with an oil. Some naturals like to oil their scalp, so if you prescribe that then place a few drops of your favorite natural oil on your fingertips and run them along with your scalp in between the sew-in weave tracks.
2. Styling Sew-in Weaves
Style your hair carefully. When detangling your hair after a shower, start with the bottom of the extension and work your way up to reduce pulling at the hair. Never perm or color hair extensions on your own. If you want another style or color, your stylist can sew in extensions that already have the style and color you want. Use heated styling tools sparingly to prevent extensions from becoming dry and brittle.
3. Daily Moisture Sew-in Weaves
We must provide extreme amounts of moisture to our hair on a daily basis. Being that we had a wet and wavy style, we sprayed an activator-like spray on the weave daily after wetting our entire head in the shower. So, moisture was never a problem. In fact, we had too much moisture and not enough protein as stated earlier. If you are wearing hair that is not wet and wavy and you wish to keep it dry, you must use a moisturizer that will not wet your hair, but still get the job done.
4. Nightly Care on Sew-in Weaves
Wrap your hair up with a silk scarf for straight hair to avoid tangles in your sleep, and you can make braids before sleeping to keep your curly or wavy hair more textured.
