Q: I want to get a hair look that’s long, dark and dramatic with lots of layers. Since this is an investment, how long can I leave a weave in my hair, and how do I take care of it?

A: The length of time that you can leave your weave or extensions in varies. It can be anywhere between four and 12 weeks. However, this depends upon how the hair is maintained as well as the natural growth of the hair.

To get the most out of your weave, visit your professional hairstylist regularly. Maintenance is key, and we advise seeing your stylist every two weeks as you would with your own hair. Your hairstylist can check for slippage. Often times, consumers pop sewing thread when they comb their hair and the track becomes loose. Your stylist can check for such things and prevent tracks from coming out.
