We have had a number of enquiries in regards to how to maintain your weave and get the best from your hair once its been applied. Therefore we have put together some maintenance tips!
How long will my weave last?
Once you have had a weave applied by our hair extension specialist it will last two and a half to 3 months depending on the length and texture of your hair.
How can I maintain my weave?
In order to maintain your weave we recommend that you have a tighten. This is usually recommended between 4-8 weeks after your weave application ( depending on the length and thickness of your hair) A tighten will improve the look of your weave as well as helping it to last longer. ( we do not recommend tightening your weave after 8 weeks).
How do I keep my weave looking good?
It is recommended that you shampoo your weave regularly. This will keep your weave free from product and particles in the air. You may need to do this more frequently if you swim or do regular exercise. You can either do this at home or visit our salon. you can speak to your stylist about shampooing or attending one of our hair maintenance workshops.
Having a shampoo and tighten will refresh your weave and make it look brand new!
We advise that you should always use the correct products on your weave in order to maintain the look and natural flow of the hair. “After all you wouldn’t use diesel in an unleaded vehicle!!”
