What Causes Shedding and How to Prevent?
Shedding has got to be one of the most notorious vibe-killer when it comes to getting new weaves.
WHAT CAUSES THE HAIR TO SHED?
HOW TO PREVENT SHEDDING
·SEW AROUND WEFTSThe next time you visit your stylist or make your own hair, make sure you do not bypass the wefts or clues. Continuously piercing the needle, whether it is thickness or thickness, will eventually make the weft loose, hair loss.
·USE FOLD OVER METHODTry to avoid cutting the weft during sewing and trying to flip or fold it. Once you cut the weft, it will cause the gap loose. If you cut the weft, be sure to seal the ends with a weft sealant (a liquid adhesive or glue). Another way is to try to suture the ends of the cut tightly with wire and needle.
·PROPER HAIR CAREBrush or comb the hair: be sure to always do it gently from the bottom and work your way up. Do not yank the hair vigorously as this may loosen the wefts with time. Avoid brushing through curly hair unless it is completely wet or damp.
Wash the hair: avoid too many hair products. Do not soak wefts in extremely hot water for too long as this may loosen the seam. Use air-dry method if possible and stay away from blow-dryer-and-a-comb method.
Go to bed: wrap sew-ins with a silk scarf, if it’s a wig, take it off and hang it on a wig stand. Many movements happen during our sleep, causing breaking, snagging etc. however not too tight a wrap though, that can be a headache.
·BUY GOOD HAIR WITH STRONGER AND TIGHTER WEFTS
While all the above steps are important, investing in a good quality hair is even more necessary. Needless to say, if the actual hair quality is borderline poor and wefts are badly sewn, none of these steps may be able to save it. Always shop strong double-wefts bundles that will have minimal to no shedding.
