Comment prendre soin de ses cheveux après une pose de tissage ?

The weave pose is a popular technique for adding length and/or volume to your hair . After this pose, it is important to take care of your hair to ensure its health.

Here are some tips for taking care of your hair after a weave pose.

Avoid handling your hair excessively

How to fix your hair?

After the weave pose, it is important to avoid handling your hair excessively. Handling your hair can create tangles, which can lead to breakage of natural hair. Indeed, the less you manipulate your hair, the more you can preserve your lengths and therefore take advantage of the growth you gain by wearing the weave. Use a soft-bristle brush to gently brush through your hair, and don't be afraid to go with your fingers first if you get tangles. If you have frizzy hair, which is harder to disentangle, proceed to the disentangling step only after applying a treatment to your hair (deep disentangling is done when applying your mask, don't forget it girls ).

Wash your hair with a mild shampoo

Why is my hair dry?

When washing your hair after a weave pose, use a mild shampoo. Avoid shampoos that contain sulfates , as they can dry out the hair. Use lukewarm water to rinse your hair and be sure to rinse out all the shampoo!

Also avoid rubbing your hair too hard while washing as this can lead to hair breakage. As you will have understood, gentleness is the watchword to preserve your hair.

Moisturize your hair regularly

How do I moisturize my hair?

After weaving, it is important to moisturize your hair regularly to prevent it from becoming dry and brittle. Use conditioner, butters, moisturizing oils… Avoid products that contain alcohol. You can also use hair oil to seal in moisture and protect hair from damage.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

After coloring

After weaving, you have to let your hair breathe a little and avoid attacking it with harsh chemicals such as coloring, perms and relaxers. If you still want to change your hair color, consider using ammonia-free or peroxide-free dye products (be sure to read your product compositions or use YUKA).

Avoid excessive heat

Protect your hair from the heat

After weaving, avoid excessive use of heat sources such as straightening irons and curling irons. Excessive heat can damage natural hair, especially if you did an open weave that required you to straighten your hair, better take a break.

If you really must use a straightener or curling iron, use a heat protectant to protect your hair . You will find very good and inexpensive ones on the velvety shop.

In conclusion, caring for your hair after a weave pose is crucial for its long-term health and appearance. Avoid manipulating your hair excessively, use a mild shampoo, moisturize your hair regularly, avoid harsh chemicals and you can enjoy all the benefits of weaves on your hair (stronger, rested, longer).
