Hair weaves are created with human hair or synthetic fibers and are available in many different textures, including wet and wavy, straight, kinky and curly. For many people, hair weaves give them the opportunity to change the length, texture and style of their hair as often as they want. Whether you buy synthetic or human hair weave, you must take the proper steps to maintain it. Wavy and curly weave textures especially, can lose definition and become tangled if not cared for properly.
