Ethnic Hair: How long should I keep a sewn in hair weave in my hair?

0 votes
I just got a sewn weave the beginning of September. I used Sensational bone straight yaki style and wanted to know how long should I keep the extensions in my hair.
Also I usually get my hair relaxed, but I am trying not to do it as often because I was told that your becomes very weak after repeated use of hair relaxers. Is it best to alternate between hair extensions and hair relaxers?
 
I have kinky type hair and it gets very dry. I am trying to look for ways to make my hair more manageable and healthy. Is this possible for my hair type? What products should I use for my hair?

Weave 2-3 months with proper maintenance…wash it every 1-2 weeks, let your stylist do it if weave isnt dried properly it can mold. Yea is possible with your hair… Your hair needs lots of moisture…Check out these websites….

yes you should put grease on your head! So it wont get as dry! You should leave your weave on 1-3 months i would prefer taking it off like in a couple of days or weeks! If its missed up now take it out!

With regular maintenance you should be able to keep the weave in for six months. Providing that you get it washed and set regularly and your beautician tightens the tracks as needed. She will also relax your hair as needed. However you should take it out when you are ready and trust me you will know when it is time.
 
Nutrine Garlic Conditioner- Use the one in the jar it costs about $6.99. This will make your hair super soft. Two ways to use
 
1. Wash your hair yourself before you going to the beauty parlor and put this in your hair. cover with plastic cap. Reason being: I like to deep condition my hair for as long as possible
 
2. Let your beautician apply it in put you under the dryer for 15-20 minutes,

Depending on how well you take care of your weave, you should be able to keep it in for 6-8 weeks. If you feel like your weave needs to be refreshed, you can go to a stylist to have your weave tightened and washed/styled.
 
It is possible for your hair type to be manageable and healthy, but that depends on you, and how you take care of yourself and your hair. Start by eating healthily, drinking lots of water and getting some kind of exercise.
 
As far as your hair, wash and condition it once a week. Give yourself hot oil treatments and deep conditioning treatments- alternate these, with hot oil one week and deep conditioning the next week. Also use protein treatments either the week before or the week after you relax your hair. Your stylist may be able to do this for you for an extra $10-$20. Get your dead/split ends trimmed (about 1/8 of an inch) every time you get a relaxer. Use as little heat as possible because curling irons and blowdryers can be damaging if used too much. Use products that have no alcohol (or little alcohol) because it is drying. This means staying away from spritz and hairspray. Oil sheen is okay though. Stay away from mineral oil as much as possible because this clogs the pores in the scalp. Other than that, use whatever products work for you. Elasta QP, Dudleys, Keracare, Mizani, Cream of Nature, Motions and Paul Mitchell are good product lines, but you don’t have to limit yourself to these lines. These are just popular brands for African American hair.
 
You can alternate between relaxing and weaves. The weaves will give you a break from styling and manipulating your hair too much.
 
Hope this helps.
