How do you wash your weave after taking it out?

Last Updated: 20th June, 2021

Detangle With Shampoo and Conditioner
After shampooing with a moisturizing cleanser, apply a generous amount of a moisturizing conditioner, and comb through the entire length of your hair while it's saturated. As always, begin at the ends of your mane and slowly work your way up toward the scalp.

Likewise, how do you wash your weave?

Method 1 Washing a Leave-In Weave

  1. Saturate your weave with warm water.
  2. Apply shampoo and rinse it out.
  3. Apply conditioner and let it sit for 15 minutes before rinsing.
  4. Detangle your weave with a wide-tooth comb.
  5. Sit under a hair dryer for 45 minutes.

Subsequently, question is, can you put oil on weave? You can only wash your weave if you've invested in quality human hair. Oil your scalp NOT the hair itself - Oil your scalp every three days but avoid getting any oil on your extensions as it makes the hair stiff and it will lose its mobility.

Besides, how often should you wash your weave?

Just like your natural hair, your weave needs to be cleaned (once every two weeks; every week if you work out a lot). It can easily pick up bad scents, dirt, and debris, much like your real hair. So when your hair, the extensions, or both start looking stringy, it's time to give them a good scrub-down.

How can I keep my weave silky?


  1. Use silicon serum / spray in your hair to keep it silky, shiny, and tangle free.
  2. Brush your wig / weave twice a day, starting at the tips.
  3. Wash your hair at least once a week.
  4. Never sleep with wet or damp hair.
  5. We recommend air drying your hair.
  6. Spray leave-in conditioner and brush gently.

Can I wash my hair with weave in it?

Yes, you need to shampoo your hair on a regular basis even while wearing any kind of weave. Instead, work your fingers straight through the hair to the ends. Let the water help guide the shampoo down. It's important to keep the weave hair as straight as possible, in order to prevent matting and tangling.

Use a sulfate-free shampoo on your stiff weave to erase that buildup. Shampoo your hair no more than every seven to 10 days. Rather than vigorously rubbing the shampoo into your weave, gently smooth it on your tresses to avoid agitating the weave. Once the shampoo is rinsed out of your weave, let it air dry.
