Besides cleansing, weave needs to be combed regularly so that it doesn’t tangle excessively or mat. It should be secured at night, either under a satin cap or scarf. Human hair weaves should be treated very much like your own hair, and this includes applying products and heat; like your natural tresses, however, don’t use heavy products or too much heat when styling your weave.

Ask for your stylist’s advice on how long to leave a weave in. If you extend this time too much, not only will your weave begin to look old and ragged, your new growth may begin to mat.
