Care Tips For Curly Weaves

If you have decided to go in for curly hair weaves, you should also be aware of the care required to maintain such hairdos. Here are some tips about hair care for curly weave hairstyles.
  • Use of cotton pillowcases and sheets may adversely affect the shine of your hair so always use a silk scarf at night and wrap it around your head. It will help to keep your hairdo intact and prevent it from tangling either! 
  • Curls are delicate things and excessive styling is the fastest way to make them fall apart. Do not brush or comb your curly weave when it is dry. Many people do not realise the damage this can do to curly hair. Curly hair is already more susceptible to breaking off and when you attempt to comb through the curls when its dry you are just begging to break off some hair ends by tugging on knots and tangles.
  • Curly hair tends to be difficult to manage during the rainy season. Besides, hair weaves need more attention and care! You would particularly notice curly hair weaves tend to get frizzy when the weather turns damp. In that case, you must use a good conditioner and an anti-frizz serum. Avoid an excessive use of the hair dryer.
  • Choosing the right conditioner is very important for woven hair. A high quality leave-in conditioner will help to balance the levels of moisture and prevent it from being dry and subsequently causing frizz. Use a product designed specifically for long use.
  • There are many techniques used for curly hair weaving; hair bonding, tracking, fusion method or even tree braiding. Whatever the method, you need to discuss with your hairstylist before you opt for any. This will help you to know which technique and hairdo would suit your tresses and the kind of care required after the weave. Many techniques tend to damage texture of the natural hair so be aware of the flip sides as well.
  • While hair is moist or damp, avoid brushing the same. Simply run your fingers through your hair and detangle the ends.  If you're pressed for time and need to dry it fast use a blow dryer with a diffuser attachment. This way your curls won't frizz or flatten.
  • Always ensure you have a very light and easy to use cream based moisturiser for your hair. You can use this on your curly weave hairdo to help retain the natural shine of the hair.
  • While weaving your hair, buy a reputed brand (whether you opt for natural or synthetic hair). This hair will be bonded to your natural tresses, so only use high quality products.
Use these tips for curly weave hairstyles and go in for a makeover without any hassles!!!!!

keep two or three inches of length all over and always make sure to have it cut to mimic the shape of your head.

When I was using curly weave for my installs, I tweaked my reggie a bit to make it last longer. I used spray bottles with diluted conditioner and shampoo in them so I could spray my braids directly without having to tangle the hair up trying to wash. Plus on cowash and poo days, I would part the weave down the middle and put each section into a big braid. Once the hair was dry, I just unravelled(sp?) the braids and it was as good as new. Any frizziness I had was cured with a little bit of Care Free Curl or BRX Braid spray. Just a few squirts and run your hand over the hair to smooth it and voila! HTH
