AVOID THESE COMMON WEAVE FAUX PAS!
1. Way Too Tight: Tension on the hair leads to inflammation, alopecia & possible permanent scarring. Also, the hair weave should not feel heavy, or it will cause a weight problem. A skilled stylist can do a weave without you feeling pain from tight braids.
2. Lack of Shampoo: If you do not wash your scalp properly or at least once a week, it will cause issues. These issues range from overgrowth of yeast and bacteria on the scalp. An on-going itchy scalp is not normal, maintain your scalp clean.
3. Goopy-Hair Glue: Sewn in weaves are generally safer, but we know that a glue in is cheaper. If you must go with glue in make sure you use a product (Bond Remover) that helps remove the close. If not you will end up ripping your hair, or worse your scalp!
4. Weary Weave: The longer you wear a weave the more likely it is to cause damage. Do not keep on a weave for more than two months, and give your hair a at least a 2 week break in between.
