Just reading through all the comments and i am having similar issues with the weave i just had installed in my hair. This is my 2nd time washing it and it is STILL getting very tangled. :/ The first time i got this weave i used the same hair and i also washed it!! And i had no problems....so i dont understand why this time its becoming so unmanageable. Someone please HELP!! ive only had this in for 3-4 weeks.

I remember having that issue every now and then when I used to wear weaves with BSS hair, so I feel for you. Maybe you could try and make sure that the hair is untangled BEFORE you step into the shower? Use lots of conditioner to detangle and then braid up every section and step into the shower only to rub your scalp in between the tracks? Some hair is no good and will matte up no matter what. Maybe someone else will chime in, as I'm still learning...

Ok, what does BSS hair mean? And thats sounds very helpful!! I called myself combing through it well before i showered but maybe im not.This is my 2nd time washing it since i got it put in about 3 weks ago! And it seems like my braids are either becoming loose or from washing it the some of the strings have come loose also..could that have something to do with tangling?? Maybe since my hair(weave) is dry BUT my real natural hair is still damp? I had no problems when the stylist washed and styled it...maybe i just need to be more cautious and observant...or buy a little more expensive brand of hair. lol

BSS means Beauty Supply Store. As I'm finding out, ladies on here are buying superior grade virgin human hair from internet vendors. The average hair sold in the BSS is not always that good and I have experienced what you are experiencing in the past (very distant past, lol, Haven't had a weave in a long time, which is why I'm asking questions on here)
 
As for your braids coming loose, I would think 3 possible reasons:
 
- wasn't done tight enough by the hairstylist (which is tricky because if braids and sewing is too tight, that could spell disaster for your hair, so the hairstylist really has to be skilled)
- You are pulling and tugging at the weave while trying to detangle the hair. Grab the hair at the base with one hand to avoid excess tension, start detangling from the ends and work your way up with your other hand (again, with your hair saturated with moisturizer. Try something like Herbal Essences Hello Hydration? It works great on my natural hair, I don't know how it performs on extensions, though)
- You might have been scrubbing your scalp too hard in the shower. Make sure you're gentle.
 
Sometimes, it's just the hair that sucks. I've had to remove an install quickly before as well. It's frustrating because it feels like such a waste of money. Go back to your hairstylist for your next wash to see if it makes a difference.
 
Oh, and I forgot to mention. Check out the "How to make sense of info in the weave section" thread I made. Some ladies are saying that BSS hair is processed with some kind of product and that it looks great out the package but gets worse and worse after being washed. This could explain your results. Which is why I'm contemplating going the internet vendor route for my next weave

Depending on what kind of hair you used, you may have washed the silicon coating off the hair. Since BSS hair cuticles aren't aligned and all that good stuff, that coating is the only thing that keeps it from tangling and matting.

Get either Silicon Mix or some other silicon based shampoo and try washing again and deep conditioning. Also if you're using products like oils and potions, STOP. BSS hair doesn't need, and can't handle all that.

If your braids are coming loose, then everything else is a wash. Braids are your foundation. You may have to get your install done over if your braids are loose. Also, you mentioned your.braids still being damp. Please dry them as best as possible. Stuff can grow in damp braids.

Overall, if you wear weave regularly, I would suggest you invest in QUALITY remy or virgin hair. It will be able to handle washes and different processes, and if you take care of it well, you should be able to reuse it.
