How to prevent your natural hair from being damaged by hair weave or extensions

For many beauty lovers, weave or extensions is a great way to increase the length, volume, and even color of your hair. Most importantly, you can change the styling of your hair at will. However, while these hairstyles offer many possibilities, the long-term wearing of them can damage your natural hair and even lead to permanent hair loss if appropriate prevention and care measures are not taken.

Hair weave or extensions often require the wearer to hold natural hair tightly, which can create a lot of tension on the scalp, which can be very harmful to the hair. Constant pulling can cause hair strands to break or fall out and damage the hair follicles on your scalp. Once the follicles are damaged, the hair can no longer grow back, leading to the worst result, permanent hair loss.

Fortunately, there are a few precautions you can take to avoid these problems.

Loveuwig recommends the following tips to prevent your hair from being damaged by weave or extensions:

1.Keep your natural hair in its natural shape.

It is important to take care of your natural hair before you weave or extend it. Make sure your hair is clean and free of buildup caused by by-products such as hair gel. Use conditioner to keep your hair hydrated and strong. Continue to follow this hair care routine to keep your hair healthy during braiding or hair extensions.

2.Get a professional stylist.

You should ask a professional to help you weave or extend. And remind them when they're at work, tell them if you have a headache or your hair is too tight. You know that tight hair can lead to hair loss called tractive alopecia, which is a form of hair loss caused by repeated pulling and pulling of the hair, and it can be permanent. If your weave or extensions are sore or feel too tight, please be sure to tell your stylist to relax our affected scalp area.

3.Keep your hair neat.

Depending on the texture of your hair, wash your Weave or Extensions properly. If you wear clip-in extensions, remove them before washing your natural hair. Use a gentle, moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to keep your scalp clean and hydrated.

4.Protect your hairline.

Your edges -- the baby hairs that grow around your hairline -- are very fragile. For daily care, only use water-based styling gel and conditioner to moisturize. Be sure to avoid using overheated modeling tools as much as possible. For example, curling irons, splints, overheated hair dryers and so on.

5.Change your hairstyle.

In order to maintain healthy hair, it is important to give your hair a break from Weave or Extensions. Keep these hairstyles for two to three months at most, then remove them and give your hair a rest for another style.

Keep in mind that hair and care products can help a lot with the health of your hair.Trying out new wigs, such as African women wigs, Nigerian wigs, headband wigs, lace front wigs can also be very fun, and your wig will soon need its own space in the closet.
