How to maintain your weave

Weaves differ in texture 

Some are strong others are soft depending on the make .

Most times after one use your weave takes the nature of a spongy look. Making you stranded on how to chose the next best weave to fix.

But there are many ways to maintain your weave after use.

We have different categories of weave but I would talk on just two types of weave.


Human hair weaves are usually expensive and requires diligence in maintainace . Good quality human hair should last up to two to three years if properly taken care of.

These are few ways to maintain your human hair

1. Comb your human hair layer by later this allows it to be free from tangles

2. Use small amounts of argon oil if your hair loses its shine.

3. Matt the human hair if u are not going out it helps keep your human hair soft and free from tangling

4.Wash with shampoo and conditioner with warm water it maintains good fragance and reduces dirt clustering . It’s best to comb your weave when it’s wet, and only use a wide-toothed comb to gently work out the tangles from can only use boiling water when you want to change your human hair design from straight to curly

5. Wrap your hair up loosely using a satin scarf when going to sleep. Never go to sleep with a wet weave, since that can cause moldiness.


Synthetic hair has given people the that "once and for all use" once you use the synthetic hair and loosen it,it goes straight to the dust bin.

But synthetic hair can be used more than once if managed well.

These are a few ways to maintain the synthetic hair
