When the weave comes off

What to do after taking out your weave

Detangle With Conditioner

After shampooing with a moisturizing cleanser, apply a generous amount of a moisturizing conditioner and comb through your hair entirely at this point while it's saturated. As always, begin at the ends of your mane and slowly work your way up toward the scalp.

Trim Your Ends

Depending on how comfortable you are taking care of your own hair, you can trim your ends yourself or visit your stylist. Your ends have been pretty well protected while in extensions, so hopefully, you haven't suffered any undue damage. In most cases, you'll only need a simple "dusting," where the smallest amount is clipped just to get rid of any dryness.

Let Your Hair Rest

As tempting as it may be to retouch your new growth or put in another set of extensions right away, don't. Your scalp and hair need to rest. When you wear a weave, a small amount of stress is placed on the scalp from the extra weight of the extension hair, and your scalp needs time to recover. Some women don't want to walk around with untouched new growth, but it's important to find a style or styles you can rock for the next couple of weeks that don't rely on chemicals or added hair.
