OMG I HAVE A SEW IN, NOW WHAT SHOULD I DO?
I see this question asked a lot and thought I would make a post regrading. First I want to say learning how to take care of your hair during a Sew in is not difficult so don't stress the only thing is making sure you don't neglect you hair while its in. By neglecting you hair this can cause you hair to grow and collect bacteria.
Items you will need to maintain you hair and promote growth are:
2 color applicator bottle
1 small spray bottle
That's it ladies
On wash days which should be about every 7 to 14 days. Take one applicator bottle and fill with shampoo and water, the other bottle fill with your deep conditioner and water. You will won't to make sure your deep conditioner is moisture based since your hair is hidden you'll need to keep it very moisturized in order to retain length and not break off. Apply the products by lifting you tracks and squirting the product between you braids. Afterwards take your hands and gently message working the product into a lather.Do not focus on your hair weave but instead you natural hair. When done rinse very well until water runs clear. Next apply you leave in.
For drying you have two options setting under a dryer or using a blow drier. I don't recommend Air drying since your hair is covered this could take along time and your hair could also mildew if it doesn't dry in areas. This could cause a major problem and stinky hair.
Daily you will still Moisturize and Seal you hair with a Moisturizer and a Oil of choice. For moisturizing you can use a braid spray, regular moisturizer, or a homemade conditioner moisturizer. To make applying you oil sealant of choice easier you can use a spray bottle. Do not overload you hair with to much product this will cause build up. A CLEAN SCALP IS A HEALTHY SCALP
Hope this help ladies if you have any questions or request let me know
