How To Bring Brazilian Hair Weave Back To Life?
1. Brushing And Detangling
Just like your own hair, before styling, you want to be sure to detangle it first. It may be daunting or even difficult, but it must be done. You can’t wash it or comb with a wide-tooth brush through it all the way without detangling it first. Depending on how tangled and matted it is, you can add some conditioner as you detangle to loosen it up and provide slip.
2. Soak Your Hair
Once the hair is thoroughly detangled, you then want to soak the hair. I like soaking mine in a silicon mix shampoo that is diluted with water. The silicon mix shampoo will cleanse the hair and remove any build-up and residue that may be lingering behind on the wefts and throughout the hair.
First, you want to rinse out the silicon mix shampoo. Make sure you rinse the hair from top to bottom and be gentle with the hair so you don’t cause any unwanted tangles. You can go in with a clarifying shampoo to remove any remaining buildup from the hair, and then follow up with a regular cleansing shampoo.
4. Deep Conditioner
Now that you have shampooed the hair, then you need to condition it with your conditioner of choice. Let the conditioner sit on the hair for about 15-20 minutes to soften it up. If you are washing weave or a wig that is on your head, then you can even sit in the dryer for 15-20 minutes with the conditioner in, and then rinse out.
5. Air Dry
Whether the hair is installed or not, you can allow the hair to air dry. If the hair is installed, you do want to make sure the braids underneath are completely dry, so you can sit in the dryer for a bit.
