The following tips are specifically for natural weave or straight hairstyles; however, there are also sections that contain special instructions for individuals who have curly and/or wavy hairstyles. Curly weaves generally take more effort but are not impossible to manage.
Moisture is perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind when caring for your weaves, regardless of what style they are. This is also the case for any hair that may not grow out of your own scalp. Hair that is both moisturized and clean is always vibrant, manageable, and easy to manipulate.
However, hair extensions are not able to obtain amounts of moisture and nutrients from your scalp, meaning that they require extra amounts of care in order to ensure that they continue to look great.
