How to Tie Up a Hair Weave at Night

by Andrea Griffith ; Updated September 28, 2017

Hair weaves, or hair extensions, can give you long, full, silky hair. The weaves can either be glued directly onto your scalp, or they can be "woven" into tiny braids made by your natural hair. However, you might find that your hair extensions can mat easily at night while you are turning in your sleep. The mats can cause large and painful knots in your hair. Also, the tossing and turning of sleep can make the tiny natural hairs stick up. To avoid both of these problems, you can tie up your hair before going to sleep.

Lightly spray your hair with the oil spray. This will help put some shine and life back into the locks while making sure they don't tangle.

Pull your hair back into a small ponytail or bun using a hair tie. This will help keep the hair in place even if you turn in your sleep.

Hold open a square silk scarf and fold it into a triangle.

Place the edge of the long side of the triangle (where it was folded in half) on top of your head, covering all of your hair.

Fold the scarf down, over your ears and behind your head. Crisscross the ends of the triangle behind your head and pull the ends back up to the top of your head.

Tie the ends of the scarf into a knot on top of your head. This will hold the scarf in place during the night.
