Wigs are the ultimate in protective styling, but it's important that you look after the hair under the wig.

"What is the best way to look after my hair under my weave or wig?” 

Mellisa, 35 Manchester

“Moisture is essential when it comes to looking after the hair under your weave. Be sure to moisturise your scalp to help prevent build up and stop the hair drying out. You can use an essential oil, you can put it in a spray to get to the hard to reach places. Also if you plan on keeping your weave in for a while I would also advice to wash your hair and treat while in the weave every 2-3 weeks, even though you can't get to it properly something is better than nothing.”
