Ensure that your hair is clean, dry, and well-conditioned before installing the weave. It's best to wash and deep condition your natural hair before starting the process.
2. CREATE A SOLID FOUNDATION
Depending on your preference and the condition of your natural hair, you can braid it into cornrows or create a flat base by wrapping it against your head. This foundation will provide a stable surface for attaching the weave.
3. MEASURE AND CUT THE WEAVE
Determine the desired length of the weave and cut it accordingly. Make sure to leave a small amount of excess hair to allow for adjustments during the installation process.
4. ATTACH THE WEAVE
Start at the nape of your neck and use a curved needle and thread specifically designed for weaving to sew the weave onto the cornrows or base. Begin sewing from one side and work your way to the other, ensuring the weave is securely attached.
5. BLEND THE WEAVE WITH YOUR NATURAL HAIR
Use a comb or your fingers to blend the weave with your natural hair, ensuring a seamless and natural look. You can also use styling tools to curl or straighten the hair, depending on your desired style.
HOW TO MAINTAIN
Gently detangle the hair using a paddle brush or wide toothcomb before washing.
Use a mild shampoo and lukewarm water to wash the hair, applying the shampoo in a downward motion and rinsing thoroughly with clear water.
Use cold water when conditioning to help seal hair cuticles and promote shine.
Avoid rubbing or twisting the hair while washing and conditioning to prevent tangling and breakage.
Gently squeeze out excess water from the hair with a towel and hang it to air dry or use a blow dryer with cold air.
Apply heat appliances only when the hair is completely dry.
Use a small amount of hair lotion or serum for additional styling and conditioning.
