How to Wear a Weave in the Summer (Yes, Even in Georgia!)
Sew-in weaves and hair extensions are a popular way to add length and volume to hairstyles, but can they survive the ravages of summer? Read on to learn how to protect your weave from summer sun, sweat, swimming, and more, with tips from the expert stylists at Levell’s Salon in Marietta.
- Style– Leave outs can be a great option for a more natural weave style, but they can be harder to manage in the summer. Keeping your natural hair styled to match the weave will be much easier in cooler months, so go for full coverage weave hairstyles in the summer.
- Quality- One of the most important considerations when getting a weave installed is always the quality of hair you choose. High-end human hair is far less likely to tangle than synthetic options. Humidity is a fact here in Georgia, so you may as well work with it rather than against it. Choose a curlier hair texture that can be styled in beachy waves, and save the stick-straight styles for winter.
- Hair care– The one drawback of weaves is that many people fall into the “out of sight, out of mind” trap and end up neglecting their real hair! Even though your hair is concealed beneath your weave, it’s important to follow normal summer hair care steps for both your hair and your weave, especially in the hot, sweaty summer. Wash and moisturize your hair regularly, using an applicator tip bottle to help you cleanse and condition your braided hair.
