Also, when you’re in between sew-ins, you’ll want to let your hair “breathe” a little after covering it completely. The time you’ll need to do without a sew-in really just depends on how your hair reacts, which you won’t know until you take it out. If you have a lot of breakage after you’ve taken out the sew-in, you might consider leaving it out for a few weeks while you work to replenish the moisture your hair needs.
Almost as important as caring for your natural hair while wearing a sew-in is finding a stylist who knows how to properly apply a sew-in. Don’t assume that just because someone “does weaves” that she knows HOW to do them well! Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. While you may find a “hair dresser” who will do your sew-in for $50-60, it might be worth paying closer to $80-90 to have it done by a stylist who will not leave you with a cone head, bald spots when you remove the sew-in, or overall just looking wrong. A good stylist will also take her time on you. Ask for references from friends, and look at a potential stylists’ portfolio of work to see what she’s done and how she does sew-ins. Bottom line: it might be worth the splurge to have your sew-in done right.
