Sew-In Take Down

I had a SUCCESSFUL take down !!! Compared to my last take down which was a complete horror story. I did not experience NO matting and NO breakage! I took my sew in down on a Saturday so this is a bit late.  Here how my take down went about:

[1] With the help of someone I had the sew in removed

[2] I then applied a hot oil treatment onto the braids (this will help to unravel the braids easily) Oil is the key to taking down the braids ! It went smoothly 

[3] I then unravel and finger detangled to remove all the shed hair one braid at a time. A lot of shed hair was removed which was expected. I also followed up with a wide tooth comb to make sure it is fully detangled 

[4] Once I got to my last braid my entire head was fully detangled and all shed hair was removed. I shampoo with Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo.

[5] Followed with Herbal Essence Conditioner that made my hair even more easier to detangled. 

[6] Deep condition with Aussie 3x Moist with heat for 35 minutes 

[7] I applied Creme of Nature 7 as my leave in

[8] Hair air dried and was put into a bun.

  2. Glad your take down went well! I've had take down horror stories too, so I know you were happy about this one! Which oil(s) did you use? I'm curious to know! :)

    1. Thanks, I was very happy! Now I know using water is a No No & I used a mixture of Jojoba Oil, Avocado Oil & EVOO
