  3. Moisturize hair and place a satin cap over it before heading to bed. Without this, oil from your hair will be absorbed unto your pillow resulting in hair that is dry and more prone to damage. To further prevent the hair drying out, these steps must be followed before using the satin cap, for relaxed hair, ensure hair is wrapped/ roller set for natural hair, braid the hair

Weekly Care of your yaki hair weave style
*It is usually recommended that you wash your hair weekly but you may also choose to shampoo twice a week instead, to keep your hair looking fresher as you wear your hair weave.
To wash your hair:
Use a shampoo recommend by you stylist or one made specifically for hair weaves
*Massage the shampoo throughout the scalp ,using your fingertips, to stimulate growth.
* Use warm water to get all you hair wet. Rub some of the shampoo between your palms to lather and apply to the hair weave.
*Rinse shampoo thoroughly from scalp and the hair weave with warm water so that residue is properly removed.
*Apply conditioner to both your hair weave and your braids. Wait about 5 minutes then rinse the conditioner from the braids and hair weave with cold water. Cold water closes up the hair shaft which locks in moisture and makes the hair appear shinier.

*Dry your hair weave thoroughly (hooded dryers cause less hair damage than blow dryers so their use is recommended) to prevent you weave from getting a foul smell. use a low-medium setting when drying your hair.

Styling your yaki hair weave daily

*Prevent breakage from dry hair by applying hair oils as needed to your braids underneath the hair weave such as shea butter or carrot oil
*Use thermal protector on your hair, proceed to use a flat iron to straighten and make the yaki hair smoother
*To your yaki hair weave, and any leave out hair you may have use a hair oil moisturiser.
* Seal oils and get a healthy-looking sheen with a shine spray for hair weaves/wigs

How to sew in a hair weave-sew in weave your own hair extentions




Instruction and tips on how to sew-in weave hair extentions





Type of sew-in and choosing your hair weave extentions

You can either do a full-head hair weave (none of your own hair is left out) or leave about an inch of your own hair out in a partial weave. If you do the partial hair weave, be sure to choose hair that blends well with you hair color and hair type. Let’s say you have straight, black hair, a curly, light brown weave would not be a good choice, it wouldn’t look natural. If you want to go for hair that’s very different from yours then be sure to get a full hair weave. If you want one that bends in with your hair then go for a partial weave.Typically you need about 2 packs of hair for a sew-in, you can use more for a look of hair.

How to sew-in full and partial hair weaves

*Be sure to buy 1-2 packs of wefted hair pieces. Next wash your natural hair and be sure to use a hair treatment to to build up strength in your hair and then dry hair

*Next, obtain a curved sewing hair needle so that you can attach the weft (the top, sewn portion of the hair pieces) of the hair weave to your hair. You will also need some hair thread, scissors and hair clips

Partial weave extentions:

Leave about an inch or two of your own hair out at the front so that the hair piece behind it will be covered, braid hair in horizontal cornrows around the head

Full hair weave extentions:

*Part about 1-2 inches of hair from the entire hairline, in a circular manner. Hair in the middle should be separated, this can be done by using a clip.

*Cornrow the hair at the hairline in a circular pattern around the head

*Create one two other circular cornrows inside of the one just created. Cornrows should be flat and thin to reduce bulk.

*Continue this up to the ears and then around in a complete circle until the entire head is complete and none of the cornrows underneath are showing. For the last cornrow, leave about a 1 inch opening in the middle.

*Place the hair piece over the braid and sew with threaded hair needle (the thread should be knotted) with stitches about ½ - 3/4 inches long. Cut hair piece when you have reached one horizontal section.

*Place the hair piece over the braid and sew with threaded hair needle(the thread should be knotted) with stitches about ½ - 3/4 inches long. Cut hair piece when you have reached one horizontal section.

*Roll a track into a circle like a cinammon roll then sew the base together using a sewing needle with a knotted hair thread.

*Place this in the 1 inch opeining of your hair weave and either place glue around the sewn portion of the track. at the base or sew it completely around.

*To get a more natural and polished look, have your hair weave razor cut (layerd), preferably by a hair stylist, it makes a world of difference.

Tips for relaxed(permed) hair



  • Don't shampoo your hair up till at least four days after relaxing. Reversion will take place and your hair will look almost like it hadn't been relaxed(permed)
  • Never press relaxed hair, this will only cause serious breakage. Sweating causes pores to open up and if this occurs shortly before relaxing the hair, irritation of scalp will occur. It is best to take a little time to cool off before relaxing so the pores can go back to their normal size, to prevent this from happening
  • If your hair still has a significant amount of curl after relaxing, ask your hare care professional to strip the hair one week before relaxing
  • When, virgin hair is processed, the hair should be coated from root to tip with the chemical relaxer
  • If you get burnt while using your relaxer(perm), apply some aloe vera to the area to speed up healing
  • Do not wash hair a few days before relaxing, as this will irritate your scalp
  • Trade your hat for a scarf if you need to cover your head, it will cause less irritation and so your less likely to experience burns
  • Ensure that the time specified in the instruction is followed when relaxing so as to avoid over-processing
  • Deep condition your hair after relaxing as help fight any damage that the hair might be prone to
  • No lye relaxers tend to dry out hair. If you are using a no lye relaxer and find your hair is very dry and brittle try switching t0 to a mild lye relaxer to see the condition improves
  • Ensure a neutralizing shampoo is used after relaxing to stop the action of the chemicals. If not, this will lead to over-processing. This will cause significant damage to the hair
  • When retouching the hair the relaxer(perm) should only be placed on the new growth to protect the hairline. Petroleum jelly can be used to protect skin and scalp from burns
  • Ensure that chemical relaxer does not come in contact with your scalp
  • Wait at least 3 weeks before relaxing(perming) your hair, and proceed only if hair shows no sign of damage
  • Avoid shampooing hair one week before getting your hair relaxed nor should you get your scalp wet or irritated a few days before application. This causes you to be more prone to getting burned quickly.
  • If your hair is braided, remove braids then shampoo and condition hair approximately one week before using relaxer.
  • If you use a conditioning shampoo, watch out for a build up of conditioning agents in your hair. These will prevent your hair from looking as good as it used to when use the shampoo. Instead, switch to a non-conditioning shampoo for the next 2 times you wash your hair then revert to the conditioning shampoo.
  • As it your new growth comes in, the area between the new growth and your relaxed hair is very susceptible to breakage. Try a hot oil or any strengthening treatment as your new growth comes in, like after week 3 or 4 to reduce the breakage you experience. Remember though that by waiting longer than 3 or 4 months to touch up you are running the risk of your hair breaking from the roots
