Drying Your Weave / Braids Underneath your Weave #Weave 101
I’ve covered how to wash your weave and braids underneath in a previous blog, if you have any questions contact through my contact form on Hairnparis.com. If you take anything from this, make sure you focus on the braids underneath your weave and your weave is perfectly fine air drying. First, and for most, dry your hair completely when wearing a weave after washing it. When you wash your hair and your braids get wet underneath, if your braids do not dry completely, your hair will begin to have a mildew like smell. Ladies, this is not a good look. You cannot have your hair blowing in the wind smelling like mildew. Sitting under a dryer and letting your hair completely dry will combat that scary smell. Like most people who wash their weave, but who cannot afford to see your hair stylist every week or bi-weekly, please follow this steps.
- Detangle your hair / weave using your fingers or large detangling brush (avoid harshly pulling on your wet hair)
- Using your fingers part your weave following along the track, starting at the lower back of your head.
- Using a hand held blow dryer, but not touching the dryer directly to your hair. Blow directing the heat towards your braids / track.
- Complete these steps until you have dried your braids.
