Q:"I have a questions about sew-in weaves. How do you keep your hair from drying out when you wear your weaves? I really want a weave to give myself and my hair a real break, but I am concerned about my hair drying out."
A: First I deep condition my hair before I get a sew-in. Then I over moisturize it (as in more than I typically would on a regular day) before the braids are done. Usually that's a day or two before. Then when the braider is braiding I ask them to put some moisturizer (yes more) on the ends of my hair before they put them in the braids). Lastly I'll spritz with a leave in at the base one the weave in installed…just whenever necessary.
Hope that helps and Happy Nappying!
