Leave Your Hair Alone

Many Goddesses have turned to hair weaves as a fix for bad haircuts. Weaves have also helped to remedy breakage or shedding hair.

Virgin hair extensions allow you to leave your hair alone, giving it a chance to heal itself. In time, you’ll find your own natural hair growing back healthier than before.

The Braids Make the Weave

When it comes to getting a good looking weave, it’s all in the braids. Not just anybody can hook up your braids for your new virgin hair extensions. If those braids are laid just right, your weave won’t be right either. And, that, my Goddesses, is a major waste of money and time.

3 Tips on How to Braid Your Hair for a Weave

Another reason why your braids need to be right is the fact that your natural hair won’t grow under there if they’re not. So, here are a few tips to get those braids intact before installing that weave:

  1. Make sure the braids are too large. If you do, your virgin hair extensions will be lumpy, and big-looking. Smaller braids will allow your weave to lay flat, making it more natural looking.
  2. Avoid a beehive braid. Braiding your hair in a beehive for your weave installation is not At the crown of your head, right where the beehive braid ends, will be a very hard area to wash, condition, and sometimes, moisturize. It will generally be unmanageable and really tight, complicating washing, drying and other weave care routines.

  3. Braid from left to right. You need to wash your weave regularly to keep looking fresh and clean. This is also important for keeping your natural hair clean too. Braiding left to right, versus up and down or in a circle, allows you to scrub the areas of your scalp in between your tracks easily. That way, you know your hair and your virgin hair extensions are really clean.
