Over the years, women around the world have embraced the use of weaves to give their hair some length, to protect their natural hair from constant manipulation and to add sophistication to their looks. Majorly weaves are of two kinds, the synthetics which are made of fine plastic fibers manufacture to look like human hair, they are cheap in price, easy and less expensive to maintain. The second kind of weaves are the Human hair, they cost quite a lot, they are fragile and expensive to maintain. Most times, I advise people to avoid buying human hair if they are not capable of giving it the time, energy, and money needed for its maintenance.

Whether you own a synthetic or human hair, it's important to employ a good maintenance culture as it will definitely pay off and I'm sure you wouldn't want to see your money flushed down the drain. With this being said, I will be sharing with you some tips on how to maintain your human hair so quickly look below to find it.


The washing of your human hair should depend on if you are wearing it on or not. Once you are done using a particular weave, it is necessary to wash with a mild shampoo as you go in gently on your hair washing the dirt out. At the completion of your hair care regiment you can put it aside for the next time you desire to use but if you are having your human hair weave sewn or glued to your natural hair, it is important to wash your human hair once a week with lukewarm water and a mild shampoo. 

Bending your hair over with your face above a sink, wash out the hair with your preferred shampoo leaving at least two inches to your scarp untouched. It is advisable to use cotton wool with an antiseptic product to clean your scarp and the unwashed parts, this will prevent the hair from itching, tangling, or smelling if by peradventure you were not able to dry them adequately.

For those who's weave are in a wig form, simply make a bath in your sink or in a blow, add some shampoo and allow to sit in the water for ten mins before washing.


Conditioners are very important as it leaves your hair soft and easy to manage. In caring for your human hair, conditioner is great but applying it regularly is not the best as your human hair is in a stagnant state, it can't grow, add length or thicken up which makes regular conditioning unnecessary.  Conditioning your human hair once in two weeks is a safe routine. 

When conditioning your human hair, I will advise you to avoid a leave-in- conditioner because, in a long-run, too much product will damage the length and strength of your hair making them get bad easily.


When your hair is wet or damped, the only solution is to dry it, drying your hair the wrong way will cause some damages which are not the desire of any human hair owner. After the washing routine, most people reach out for their towel to commence the drying process but the issue is taking this step will literally snap your human hair out in strands because no matter how gentle you go in with your towel against your hair, the rough surface of the towel cannot do but snatch some strands from your hair, to avoid this reach for your old T-shirt to dry your hair. Come on now! The T-shirt has a soft texture and going in easy with it will save you some damages. If you have your human hair weave sewn or glued to you, simply go in with a dryer at a medium heat making sure you apply some heat protector on your hair so as not to incur any heat damage. If your human hairs are in rolls or wigs, simply dry them outside the house avoiding direct contact with the sun. When drying your hair, always make sure your hair is totally dried so as to avoid them smelling, matting or tangling.


There are tons of human hair serum in the market but finding the one that actually works is the problem. I will advise you to consult a professional hairdresser to guide you on the best way to go about this but for people like me who like "Simple"😜 Using natural oils such as olive oils and coconut oil is the way forward.


When putting your human hair away, always ensure they are clean, well entangled, and braided, leaving them in good condition until the next time you intend using them. For more information about protective styling, you can check my previous post.
