5 SAVING GRACES TO AVOID MILDEW GROWTH ON YOUR HAIR WHILST WEARING WEAVES

5 SAVING GRACES TO AVOID MILDEW GROWTH ON YOUR HAIR WHILST WEARING WEAVES

Take Braid Patterns into consideration – This one I do not think is that obvious, but is definitely worth considering. Yes, I know that plaiting the hair in a spiral following the circumference of the hair allows the weave to lay flatter. When you then sew the weave wefts horizontally across the head, there is virtually no access to the braids and scalp below. Request that your stylist braid the hair vertically or horizontally and spaced out. This is so you are able to not only get to your scalp to cleanse, but also drying moister after cleansing will be that little bit more easier. This will also make it easier to take the hair down after the life of your weaved style.

4 Week Rule – I know you want to get your moneys worth through the amount of months worn. I really highly suggest that weaves are removed after 4 or so weeks. You want to care for your natural hair, scalp underneath and weave properly around the 4 weeks mark. You can only really do this by taking the hair down and just starting fresh.

    My goodness. Did she not smell the mildew or even feel the moistness? The only think I would say is she might need an anti-fungal shampoo instead of an anti-bacterial one.

      Thank you Jojo, I actually meant Anti-Fungal, so will change this. It’s also 2 different women featured in this post.

    I like to use baking soda to cleanse my scalp. It also kills fungi which is also a cause of dandruff. I mix the baking soda in my hand with my shampoo and conditioner. I make sure to condition very well afterwards to balance the ph levels. Sweaty scalps in the hot weather can cause that smell as well.
