3 Maintenance Tips for Your Hair Weave, Brooklyn, New York

After spending your time and hard-earned money at the salon on a new weave, you want to make sure it will last. The best way to ensure its longevity is to take proper care of it. The friendly, knowledgeable professionals at True Indian Hair are experienced in maintaining hair weaves. Their expertise makes them New York City’s top choice for virgin hair products, and their tips will help you extend the life span of your new weave.

Comb Carefully

Tangles and knots can make your hair look and feel less than its best, but stylists say there’s a right way to get the snarls out of your hair weave. Because the piece is sewn into your natural hair, you need brush in small sections from tips to the roots to detangle it properly. If you’re too rough with the weave, you can end up damaging it or pulling out your natural hair.  

Let It Dry Completely

Experts recommend air drying when possible or using the lowest setting on your blow dryer and working from the tips to the roots.

Don’t Scratch

Because you wash your hair less when you have a weave, your scalp tends to be itchier than usual. Your hairdresser will tell you not to scratch with your nails or the edge of a hard comb because it can cause your sensitive scalp to scab. To find relief, use essential oils like tea tree or a soothing remedy like a gentle rubber comb or leave-in product.
