REVIVE THAT WEAVE!



  Hi dolls! I decided to do a post on how to revive that dry, tangled, flat and abandoned weave. These days, not many hair stylists condition weaves properly; they do a shabby job and use the wrong products which alter the textures of our 100% human hair weaves that cost a lot!  (those of us you who live in Lagos know exactly what I’m talking about) Be it Brazilian, Indian, Peruvian, Mongolian, Indonesian or Egyptian, here’s the perfect remedy to our problems, DEEP CONDITIONING!
  
WHAT YOU NEED

     1.Shampoo and conditioner
1.         
Keracare for weaves and extensions
          Products like Keracare weaves and extensions, Pantene Pro-V, L'oreal Vive Pro etc.
     For curly weaves, stay away from Pantene Pro-V as it is silicone based


L'oreal Vive pro collection
j


Pantene Pro-V


1.     2. Serum/Hair polisher:   
             John Frieda, Olive oil or any other good products

John Frieda frizz-ease

Olive oil hair polisher







1.      3. Tiny rubber bands/ hair bubbles
2.      4. Hair brush and wide toothed comb
3.      5. Washing bowl
4.      6. Towel 
     7. Hot water



   PROCEDURE

1.        1. Brush out weave to detangle it
2.        2. Roll lines back into bundles
3.        3. Put water into a bowl, add shampoo and mix
4.        4. Holding each bundle, dip into soapy water and shake
(u       (repeat this process 3 to 4 times)
      5. Replace dirty water with clean water.
          (dip and gently squeeze water out in a downwards motion) 
      6. Apply a generous amount of conditioner into bundles and comb out with a wide toothed comb
nt   7. Place bundles into bowl and 3 cups of hot water.
 j    8 .Cover the bowl with hair in it and leave for 10 to 15mins to allow conditioner  penetrate into hair 
g    9. Rinse and pat weave with a towel
    10. Dry hair using a bow dryer or sundry
    I like to add a bit of serum while the hair is still damp, then continue drying.
    P.S If you're going to style your weave afterwards with a straightener or tong, add a    bit of heat protection first. Olive oil heat protection serum or any other good one should do.


     It’s so simple, why pay someone to do it?!

Hello... Please, what can I use on my weave daily?? I used olive oil hair polisher but I didn't really like the texture after 3 weeks... Any other options,pls?

dorannedoll said...

I use Garnier Fructis sleek and shine anti-frizz serum and it's really good. However, I don't use it daily. You only need to use serum at most twice a week. Using it daily will make the hair greasy and flat.

for really curly hair, I advice you gently comb it out and then wet your fingers and run them through the hair

I have a weave in now that is 3 weeks old. It Harlem 125 100% human hair. I went to salon and it shampoo. The hair still feels mice and the front flows but in the back it tangles and wads. What can I use to control the tangles

You should use a conditioner after shampooing. Look for one that has detangling strength. Also leave in conditioner helps
