by | Mar 9, 2017 | Health & Beauty

Congratulations, you have gone and gotten a great new look. A weave can give you a stunning new hair style, and that is great. Now you just need to make sure you take care of it. There are a few things you can do to make sure that your new do looks great for as long as possible. Moisturizers, using smart styling techniques, and not over handling your hair are key things to remember when taking care of human hair extensions.


Your extensions are not attached to your scalp. This means all the natural oils that protect your own hair, do not help out your weave. Depending on the type of hair your extensions are made of, you will have different products. Be sure to stick with moisturizers that are formulated for your hair. For example, if you have a Brazilian curly hair weave, you want to stick to products that are designed for that type of hair.

Smart Styling

The first point in smart styling is try to stay away from heat. You can use rollers overnight to get curls, but if you insist on styling using heat make sure to use heat protection products. At the very least, heat protection products will minimize the damage that heat can do to your extensions. It is also important that you use the right kind of brush. A paddle brush works well on a lot of hair types, and a pick or wide tooth comb is also a good choice.

Stop Touching It

It is hard to not handle your hair a lot throughout the day, especially when it is a new style. However, all that handling is doing damage. The best thing you can do for your hair is to leave it alone throughout the day. Some light touchup work is fine occasionally, but constant brushing or combing is going to shorten the life of your extentions.
