If you have a shedding weave, it is simply because the hair is slipping out of the track. This may be because the hair is silky straight or because the track is not tight enough. To prevent your weave from shedding, you will have to seal the weft before applying it.
- Sew Around The Wefts
If you're a stylist doing a sew-in , avoid sewing the needle straight through the track. This not only causes shedding, but it also decreases the life span of your wefts.
You will need an adhesive and it will need to be applied to the hair just below the weft on both sides. Allow the glue to completely dry before applying the weft to your hair.
2. Give Carefully Hair Care
- When you combe
Excessive brushing and combing can loosen the hair from the weft, but so can brushing and combing the hair incorrectly. Hair should be brushed while it is wet and while holding the hair half way down and starting from the ends, working your way up.
- When your wash
To avoid the shed, hair should be moisturized consistently with natural products. Shampoo and conditioning should be done no more than once a week, with natural products, and distributed with a wide tooth comb. Apply a leave-in conditioner to the weave and gently comb it in. Allow your weave to air-dry thoroughly. Avoid using a blow dryer and keep the use of other tools that give off heat, such as curling irons and flat irons, to a minimum. The goal is to keep your extensions as non-dry and healthy as possible to avoid excessive shedding.
- When you sleep
Wrap your hair up at night with a silk scarf. The scarf will prevent your weave from drying, breaking and snagging while you sleep. However, don’t tie it up too tight. That can also cause the shed. You may also wrap a second scarf around the first scarf for added security while you sleep.
Just treat your hair bundles with closure as your own hair weave,the more cautious your treat it,the more beautiful it will bring to you .
