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 the root.

I have yet to decide if I want to apply an oil to my braids after I moisturized. But so far my routine is rather simple.


  1. Looks like a solid sew-in regie. Try not to use too much heat on that left out chica!

    1. Thanks! My leave out is what makes me want to wash my hair biweekly so heat can be used only twice a month. I'm still not sure thou
