A nappy weave is urban slang, meaning a hair piece that is tangled and unmanageable. Fixing a nappy weave is a straightforward procedure -- although you must follow the correct steps to avoid damaging the hair piece. Gain knowledge of the basic rules of how to repair a weave and keep it styled -- without ruining your extensions in the process.
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.
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.
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.
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.
