Nowadays, hair extensions are not the new concept for a large number of people and they are gradually becoming an indispensable item in many girls’ closets. There is no doubt that hair extensions have come a long way when it comes to quality and technology especially the long-lasting of the weave hair extension. However, when you wear it for certain time, you have to remove it from your hair so as not to damage your scalp and natural hair. In this article, you will get to know to use weave glue remover at home in some easy ways.
First and foremost, I would like to remind you of some necessary information related to the weave hair before we dig into the use of weave glue remover.
- What is the weave hair extension?
Weave hair is also recognized as sew-in hair extensions. Just like its name, the sew-in weaves are extensions that are sewn into your natural braided hair, or sometimes a net. The hair itself is braided into a specific pattern, the pattern depends on the style that you are looking for. To get the most realistic style that you can, you can just leave some of the hair out on top and on the sides.
Weave hair takes the brunt out of having to style your hair daily, so instead of exposing your hair to thermal tools, combing and brushing, your weave offers the protection so you won't damage your hair. Your ends, which are the oldest and driest part of your hair, are tucked away in your weave, allowing them to remain moisturized.
A weave may feel a bit uncomfortable and foreign to your head. But the sensation will go away once you get used to the new position of your hair extensions. And, if you are getting extensions attached to cornrows that may be a tad bit tight – don’t panic – it’ll loosen up.
- When should we use weave hair?
It’s safe to say that the sew-in weaves are the best when it comes to choosing a long-lasting protective lock. Weaves can last up to 16 weeks – crazy! Having said that, it’s not recommendable that you take the weaves any longer than that as it might not be the best option for your natural hair.
It’s safe to say that the sew-in weaves can save you a great amount of time that may otherwise be wasted when you manipulate your own lock. We all know that time is luxury to some, and obviously, many of you don’t have time to do sophisticated hairstyles every single day. With the help of the sew-in weaves, your life will be much easier, since your hair it’s mostly already done. That’s not to mention that they’re completely low maintenance, and let’s not forget how protective this hairstyle can be!
If you sweat frequently, weave hair extension might be your match made in heaven. In other words, sweat and sew-ins don’t mix. If you’re planning to have any wavy hairdos, don’t be hesitant because your sew-ins will keep your waves even when you don’t spend time on it with hot tools.
And now, here are some ways to apply weave glue remover:
- Shampoo and Conditioner
Using shampoo and conditioner is one of the safest and easiest ways to remove glue from your hair. Take a bath and apply a generous amount of shampoo on your hair. Unlike your usual shower routine where you’re likely quite vigorous and quick with frothing up your shampoo and conditioner, be patient and be gentle, especially if you’re an adult trying to shampoo glue off of a child. If the glue is even slightly solidified, scrubbing too hard can be painful and damage the scalp.
Rinse down the shampoo with water and remove the excess water from your hair. Apply conditioner on your hair and leave it on for 5 minutes. Rinse with water. When your hair is dry, comb and determine if there is still glue on your hair. Please repeat the process until all the glue is gone.
- Conditioner and a Comb
To apply weave glue remover on your hair, you can use a small amount of conditioner on the area that contains the glue and combing it down with a narrow-toothed comb.
Gently comb from scalp to the hair ends. As you begin to make headway and free some strands, use a clip to separate these combed sections to prevent them from getting re-stuck on any glue that’s still present.
- Rubbing Alcohol
Soften the glue on your hair with mild rubbing alcohol. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol on the concerned area and allow the alcohol to sink into the glue for five to ten minutes, depending on how thick, dried, and matted it has become.
As the alcohol loosens the glue slightly, gently massage the affected spot with your finger until it is feasible to use a wide-toothed comb to remove the glue. Comb out as much glue as you can, and then switch to a narrow-toothed comb to remove the stubborn pieces.
- Dishwashing Soap
You can doubt this method to have a weave glue remover, but actually this way is particularly helpful if you are having trouble with bonding glue from a mishap with hair extensions. If bonding remover products and simple shampoo have already failed you, a thorough soaking with dishwashing soap can finally begin to loosen the hardened glue.
