Caring for Your Sew In Weave

Many people use sew in weaves as protective styles and as a break from hair manipulation. However, if you don't care for your hair under the sew in or the weave itself you are doing more harm than good and may end up looking a mess and damaging your natural hair.

There are a few tools that you will need in order to properly care for your sew in. These are:

Wide Tooth Comb
This will be your best friend when wearing a sew in, especially if you are wearing a brand that has the tendency to tangle (although I advise against wearing such). The same rules apply for detangling your weave as your own hair; always start combing from the ends of the hair.


Denman Brush or Paddle Brush

These types of brushes are well suited for use on weaves. They can be used when wrapping your hair for a straight style or in the case of the Denman for detangling curly or wavy hair.

Spray Bottle
This may be used to spitz your hair with water to refresh curly weaves, to apply your moisturising spritz to your natural hair or diluted shampoo/conditioner on was days.

There you have it, the tools required to your sew in looking fresh.
