How to wash your weave properly at home

18261

Weekly salon trips to wash your hair can be costly. So, rather get the right products and do it yourself. Here is a guide on how to wash it like a pro:

Step 1

Brush your hair. Divide the weave into 8 to 10 sections and plait them from root to tip.  Carefully wet the hair from the scalp to the ends, without rubbing the plaits.

Step 2

Apply shampoo on the scalp, then to the plaits individually with a light tapping motion. Rinse carefully from the scalp to the ends, without undoing the plaits.

Step 3

Apply a conditioner on the scalp, then to the plaits individually. Undo each plait as you apply.

Step 4

Rinse carefully without rubbing the hair. Tap-dry with a towel, but don’t rub. Leave the hair to air-dry instead of blow-drying it.
