Sew In Routine

Since I am going to have my install for 6-8 weeks max I decided that I should create a sew-in regimen that I can follow for the remainder of the time. I still have not decided if I should wash my hair/weave weekly or bi-weekly.  
Weekly Maintenance
- Apply Lightly JBCO onto edges. - Moisturize braids 3x weekly - Protein spritz 1x biweekly
-Sleep with satin bonnet (Of Course)
Wash Days
- Use a non sulfate free shampoo diluted with water in applicator bottle & apply directly to my braids

- Use a deep conditioner diluted with water in applicator bottle apply to braids. Also apply the d/c to the weave to keep it in good condition. Sit under hooded dryer for 30 minutes so the d/c can penetrate my braids.

- Sit under hooded dryer until braids feel dry and to ensure that braids are fully dried use a blow dryer to apply heat directly.

- To get my leave out I will use a roller and roll the hair while sitting under the hooded dryer. If the roots looks a bit wavy still I will just flat iron t…

Wash Day ; Preparing For Sew-In

My install will be happening this week and I wanted to give my hair a really good wash/deep condition. It was pretty simple yet very effective. I used very minimal products and did a light protein treatment that I have not done in while. I washed my hair at home and went to a salon to get my ends trim and a roller set/blow out done. 
1. I prepoo my hair with a mixture of oils EVOO, Grape seed Oil, Jojoba Oil & Avocado Oil. As the oil mixture was heating up in a cup of hot water I parted my hair into four sections. Once I felt the oil was warm enough I applied it to my scalp first sectioning the four parts into two more parts. Then applied it to the lengths of my hair. I then used my Hair Therapy Cap and left it on for 30 minutes. 
2. Rinsed the oil out and then shampooed using the Miss Jessie Sudsy Slip Shampoo in my four sections. Although it was a small size it was enough for my entire head. I mainly focused on my roots and rub the suds down the length of my hair. This was my fir…

Chit Chat ; Protective Styling

Last year around this time I had decided to do a protective style which was a sew in. I had a bad experience with it only because I was not able to maintain my real hair the way I had plan to. This year once again I plan to get another sew in. I know I had a previous horror story about the amount of shedding along with the breakage I was receiving once I had took the sew in out. But I understand what I had done wrong and this time around I'm pretty sure there will be more success *fingers cross. Instead of keeping the sew in for 3 months I'm planning to keep it in shorter, depending on how I feel my hair is doing. I originally wanted to do a upart wig which I had created but it came out wrong. My fold over method did not turn out right and for some reason I had sewn the hair on the cap wrong. I did not sew all the way to the front, causing the wig to look ridiculous lol. I also did not have enough hair to cover the entire cap. But I will definitely give it a try when I take m…
