Sharon needs to keep her sew ins in for as long as possible because of her work schedule so she wanted to know how long is too long as well as if it’s healthy for her hair.

Hair Care Tip #1 No Install Longer Than 2-3 Months!
Wearing a sewin for an extended period of time can serve as a protective hairstyle for your hair but if you leave your weave or extensions in for longer than 2 to 3 months, its possible to have tangled hair or worst, matted hair.

Hair Care Tip #2 Perform a Hair Care Routine Weekly
How often do you perform your hair regimen? Do you shampoo wash your hair weekly or bi-weekly? Do you “co-wash” (conditioner wash your hair) weekly or bi-weekly? Incorporate the same practices when taking care of your sew in weave to prevent dry hair and dandruff problems. In some cases as well, if you constantly have a moist scalp because you work out, sweat often, or swim without thoroughly drying your hair, its possible that your hair will smell like mildew or mold.

Dilute all of your hair care products in applicator bottles for easy product distribution and effective rinsing of those products.

Great Natural Oils preferred for Sew In Installs
Argan Oil
Coconut Oil
Jojoba Oil (closely mimics your natural oil production)

Hair Care Tip #3 Alternate your Braid Pattern to Prevent Thinning Edges or Trained Parting
Alternate the direction of your sew in braid pattern by braiding clockwise instead of counter-clockwise (or vise versa). The braid pattern for your sew in extensions can consist of one perimeter braid that goes around your hairline or two perimeter braids. The rest of your hair can be braided to the back in cornrow braids, zig zag braids, or a beehive braid pattern (or called the butterfly braid pattern).
