If you are considering buying Peruvian or Malaysian hair, or if you are already the lucky owner of this type of weave or bundles, it is important to know how to look after it well. These weaves and bundles can last a really long time if they are properly maintained. This kind of hair is estimated to last up to two years if cared for well.
Lola Silk has expert advice on how to maintain Peruvian and Malaysian weaves and bundles.
Malaysian hair has a natural and healthy shine with a smooth texture. This hair can be easily styled and is available in different types, but especially curly patterns.
Peruvian hair is just as popular. This hair is usually soft, it has a lot of shine and does not weigh a lot, making it light on your head. Even though it is lightweight, it gives a full thickness to your hairstyle. Peruvian hair can also be bought as either straight, curly or wavy.
The team at LolaSilk is determined to source only the best quality weaves and bundles for their clients. That is why our range of Malaysian and Peruvian weaves are handcrafted from the best available virgin hair. The uniform growth direction of the cuticles guarantees that the weave is soft and silky. Our standards are set high; thus, our Peruvian and Malaysian weaves are a minimum of 11A with a density of 180%.
You also do not have to worry that your weave will fall apart after a few uses, as our Professional Weave is crafted with double stitched wefts to prevent shedding and tangling.
In this article we will look at some of the greatest tips and secrets to ensure that your Malaysian and Peruvian weaves and bundles last for the longest possible time, leaving you looking fabulous and feeling confident.
Combing your Malaysian or Peruvian weaves or bundles
One of the first steps to making your weave last as long as possible is quite simple. Detangling and combing it, when necessary, prevents nightmarish knots and matting. Before considering washing your weave, you need to get rid of tangles. To do this, start off by using your fingers to detangle the largest and most noticeable tangles starting from the ends of the hair to the top.
Then use a large tooth comb to get rid of the remainder of tangles. Once again, it is important to start at the ends and work your way up. If you start combing at the roots and comb down, you could seriously damage the hair. It is also easier to get rid of the tangles using this method.
Thoroughly combing your hair before washing it will prevent worse tangles which will be hard to get rid of once it is wet.
If you have a tightly curled weave, you should avoid brushing it. If you feel you have to brush is, use your fingers or a wide tooth comb when it is dry.
Washing your Malaysian or Peruvian weaves or bundles
Wet your weave and carefully wash the hair in a downwards direction. Be mindful of the type of shampoo or conditioner you use to clean your weave. Rather opt for gentle products or ask an expert for advice to avoid damaging the hair strands. When drying your weave, try to avoid using a regular towel. Rather use a microfiber towel or a t-shirt to ensure as little damage as possible. Try to avoid using heat to dry your hair – in this case, air drying is the best option.
Swimming and sleeping with your Malaysian or Peruvian weave
We all love our beautiful weaves, but there are certain daily tasks and fun activities you might want to participate in, but you are worried that it will damage your hair.
When sleeping, never go to bed with wet hair. Always ensure that your weave is dry before going to bed, as going to bed with wet hair will damage the strands. If you want to preserve your weave for as long as possible, wrap it with a silky material or carefully tie it up before going to sleep.
We also suggest always wearing a swimming cap when you want to take a dip in the pool or ocean. Chemicals in swimming pools can damage your luscious locks. If you accidentally get your hair wet in the pool, be sure to wash it immediately. You should always wash your hair, even if you wore a swimming cap, to ensure that you get rid of any chemicals that might have gotten underneath the cap.
