Care tips for Latina wave

Do’s

  1. Make sure to wash the hair and carry out a conditioning treatment on the hair before applying the weave.  This will help keep the natural hair strong and healthy.
  2. Make sure to rest the scalp for a week between weave applications and perform a moisturizing treatment during this week for great, healthy hair!
  3. Always brush hair whilst it’s dry (this is the opposite for deep curl or permed where it will cause hair to look frizzy).
  4. Begin brushing from the bottom of the hair whilst securely holding hair at the top as you detangle work up the hair, never brush from the root.
  5. Wear a silk or satin scarf every night to keep your hair frizz free and smooth.
  6. Use silicon serum 2-3 times a week for greater looking weave.

Don’ts

  1. Avoid relaxing before any hair weaving service.
  2. Avoid a corn row foundation which will pull your hair line causing traction alopecia.
  3. Avoid using products that are petroleum based on the scalp as they will only create build up on your scalp.
  4. Don’t leave a weave on for more than 6 weeks. Your scalp needs time to breathe!
  5. Avoid using oil sheen or hair food on your weave as this will make it look greasy and dull.
  6. Avoid fine toothed combs and instead use a soft brush with widely spaced bristles, preferably a looped brush or a wide toothed comb.
