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. 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

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length.
