How To Wash Human Hair Weave Before and After Install?

Here are the steps to wash a human hair weave before it is installed:

Begin by gently detangling the weave with a Denman brush or wide-tooth comb.

Wet the weave with warm water. Hot water may damage the weave.

Apply your shampoo of choice to the weave, gently massaging the shampoo throughout the weave.
Allow the weave to sit in a sink or bowl of water and shampoo for 5-10 minutes.

Thoroughly rinse the shampoo out of the weave until no more bubbles can be seen in the running water. This helps to ensure that no shampoo is left behind.

A human hair weave will require moisture in the form of a conditioner, just like your natural hair. Apply a light conditioner, gently working it through the hair so that every hair strand is moisturized.

Allow the weave to soak in a sink or bowl of conditioner diluted with water for 30 minutes to an hour. This will allow the hair to soak in as much moisture as possible.

Rinse thoroughly.
Allow the weave to dry completely before installing, and detangle it again as needed.

Can I Wash Weave with Dish Soap?
You can wash human hair weave with dish soap, and it’s a good option to use in a pinch. Although, dish soap and detergent can be very harsh on your hair and the weave.

For this reason, we recommend that you use a shampoo specifically designed for wigs, hair weaves, and Brazilian hair bundles.

Also, you may have heard through the grapevine that you can use Dawn dish soap for hair growth. Read this article to find it out if it actually works.

It’s also important to note that extension bonding glue can be a headache to remove, so many people turn to dish soap to break down the glue and make it easier to wash away.

Washing Your Human Hair Weave

The method you should use to wash your weave will vary depending on whether the weave is already installed and incorporated with your natural hair. Follow the steps below according to which type of human hair weave you are washing.

How To Wash a Sew-In Weave With Your Natural Hair

Wet your hair with warm water.

Apply your sulfate-free shampoo and work it into the hair from roots to ends. Massage the shampoo into your scalp, around your hairline, and into/underneath the human hair wefts.

Rinse thoroughly, leaving no traces of shampoo behind. It may take several minutes of rinsing to get all the shampoo out.
Follow up with a moisturizing conditioner, working it through your hair and weave from roots to ends. Gently detangle with a Denman brush or a wide-tooth comb. Treating your hair gently will mitigate potential damage to your hair strands.

If you’d like, you can put your hair into a shower cap while cleaning the rest of your body. This will allow the hair to fully absorb the moisture from the conditioner.

Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and remove all traces of conditioner from the hair.

Remove any excess water by drying your hair and weaving with a t-shirt or towel. A microfiber towel is preferred because it is less harsh on the hair and prevents frizz, but a t-shirt is also an excellent option.

Sit underneath a hooded dryer if you have access to one, or use a blow dryer with a diffuser attachment to completely dry your hair and weave.

Apply hair oil to your scalp to nourish scalp. If you skip this step and your scalp gets very dry, you may find flakes on your scalp or in your weave. Most natural oils should work just fine, although we really like coconut oil for these purposes.
