  1. 1

    Apply a mild, detangling hair conditioner to your weave. Carefully pull the conditioner through your locks using a wide-tooth comb. Avoid rubbing the conditioner into your hair to prevent further entanglement.

  2. 2

    Rinse your hair with warm water. Apply a mild shampoo to your hair in the same manner as the conditioner, to complete the cleaning and detangling process.

  3. 3

    Pad and pinch your weave dry with a clean towel. Use a natural bristle brush to pull through any remaining tangles. Tug carefully to avoid damaging the hair extensions.

  4. 4

    Use a heated curling iron, blow dryer or hair straightener to restyle your weave. Utilise heated devices only on natural-hair weaves. Avoid using any heated equipment on synthetic hair to prevent permanent damage.
