Things you should know about weaving

1. Hair should NEVER be freshly relaxed before being braided. Relaxers break down the bonds of the hair and causes it to be more fragile. Braiding creates added tension to the hair which can cause breakage and in some instances, bald spots.

2. Make sure your hair and scalp are clean before weaving or adding extensions.

3. Make sure your Weave/Extensions and scalp are washed at least once every two weeks. If the weave is bonded, It should be washed and redone about every 3 to 4 weeks. Build-up can occur on your scalp and block your pores and slow hair growth or create fungus. 

4. Make sure you sit under a hooded dryer for at least 1 1/2 hours after shampooing to make sure that your braids are fully dry. Wet braids create moisture. Moisture creates fungus, which can lead to bald spots and thinning hair. Blow drying with a hand dryer is not sufficient. It takes a really long time and some of the braids end up being dryer than others. 

5. Depending on the installation method, weave should be done preferably once every two months. 

6. Depending on the installation method, hot oil treatments and deep conditioning are great for you scalp and hair while wearing Weaves/Extensions

7. A Weave should grow your hair. NOT BREAK IT!!!

8. Get a trim on your own hair between Weaves/Extensions. A split end is when one single strawn of hair splits into two. Because the reinforecement of the hair is now comprimised the hair begins to break. The split starts at the bottom and works it's way up, causing breaking along the way. If the ends are not cut with sharp sciccors, but just left to break in a jagged way, it will continue to break. People always say...My Hair doesn't grow. EVERYONE'S Hair grows. Some slower than others. But it grows. The problem is not in the hair growth, the problem is that it's breaking faster than it's growing. Some say,...That makes no sense to cut my hair, if I'm trying to grow it. First off, this is a trim, not a hair cut. Your stylist may have to cut a lot the first time depending on how bad it is, but once it's under control, it should be very minimal if needing to be cut at all. As long as your taking care of you hair and not destroying it with daily flat ironing or curling. If this is done the right way, you will see that your hair is now growing faster than it is breaking. Your now on your way to long healthy hair.

9. It is ok to get a relaxer around the hairline, if that is to be left out when weaving. But this should only be done once every six to eight weeks to prevent breakage.
