How to Wash Your Hair with a Sew-In

No one can deny that the natural hair industry has grown tremendously over the years, with more and more people choosing to use their natural hair. Whether you’re a naturalist who’d rather install your hair than wash and style it or a person who just wants to try out a way to wash their hair.
Sew-in wigs are a great way to have a new look every day, but did you know that you can wash your wig? It’s true, and there are many different ways to wash a wig.

What does a sew-in weave look like?

The most popular kinky curly hair extensions in the world are sew-in weaves. They are affordable, easy to install, and relatively quick to install. They are permanent hair extension that is sewn into your hair, and they can last up to a year if they are maintained correctly.

Your hair looks like you’ve just come out of the salon. But if you were to look inside the weave, you’d see that the process of putting hair extensions in your hair is more complicated than it looks. It turns out that there are many different types of hair extensions (weave, clip-in, flat iron) and each uses different materials to achieve a different look.

What to do before washing your sew-in?

Many people who wear sew-ins often ask: “How often do I wash my sew-in?”. If you want healthy hair and a natural-looking sew-in, it is important to wash your hair every week.

Over time, the hair will get greasy and the roots will start to clump. The hair will also start to tangle; so you’ll need to get rid of the tangles before washing. If you don’t wash your hair for a long time, the hair will start to smell and the scalp will get oily. Washing your hair regularly will prevent tangling and will keep your hair healthy and shiny.

Should you use shampoo or conditioner?

The shampoo is good for cleaning your hair, whether you have a weave or real hair. If you have a full sew-in weave, use shampoo when you are rinsing the hair of styling products, so you can get rid of the residue. This will help you style your hair better and also ensure your hair is clean and healthy. If you have real hair, use shampoo to keep it clean. This is important to prevent dandruff and hair loss. So, shampoo is good for your hair, whether real or synthetic.

Should you use a plastic cap or a towel?

When selecting a towel for weaving, you must consider certain factors. The most important factor is the absorbency of the towel. If you are looking for a towel to use in towels for weaves, you need to get a towel that is absorbent and will dry fast.  The first step to finding the best towel for the weave is to read the labels carefully. A towel that has a high percentage of cotton will be better for your hair. The higher the percentage of cotton, the better the towel.  Another thing to look for is the thread count of the towel. The higher the thread count, the softer the towel will be. If your hair is thick and coarse, you should choose a towel with a higher thread count. A higher thread count will also make it easier for you to weave your hair.
