Sew-ins are one of the most popular hairstyles for women in the 21st Century because they are good for giving length, fullness, trendy fashion styles, different haircuts, different colors, and protection for our real hair. Some women think that weaves are bad, some women think that weaves are good. Well guess what? Both parties are right.

Weaves are a great way for women to give their hair a rest and just allow it to grow but that won’t happen if you don’t follow these steps in order to make sure that your scalp, roots, and ends are able to stay healthy…

  1. Take Care of Your Hair!!!

Even though you have a nice sew in and the hair on top of your head is not your hair, that does not mean that you do not have to take care of the hair underneath the weave. It is very important to shampoo and condition your real hair, even during the time that you have your hair in the braids.

After shampooing and conditioning your hair, be sure to sit underneath a hooded dryer in order to get your scalp as well as your hair dry. (Don’t just assume that since the weave is dry that means that your hair is dry.)

  1. If Your Braids for Your Sew-In Hurt… Then They Are Too Tight!

Braiding your own hair too tight can cause you to lose hair as well as damage your scalp. Tight braids can cause your scalp to bruise, which may cause you to get bald spots. You can damage the hair follicle and cause your hair line to slowly fade and get further and further from the front of your face. That is NOT CUTE!!!!!

  1. You Need To Purchase Nice Hair… Yes, It May Be A Little Pricey… But It Will Be Worth It!

When getting a sew-in, please do not come into the salon and hand your stylist a pack of hair that costs $11.99 because the value of your weave will be a $12 hair do, and that is NOT WHAT’S UP! Purchase any hair that is Remy Hair and you won’t have anything to worry about. Your hair will look good for about 8 weeks, that’s how long your sew in should last anyway before you take it out and let your hair breathe.

So just remember this ladies, sew ins can be perfect for your hair as long as you are using them for all the right reasons and doing all of the right things to take care of your main baby… Your Real Hair! Just keep these steps in mind and you will feel and look fine!

Good Luck!
