Mainly to those who get their hair done by someone,  do you usually experience discomfort following your sew ins? And if so, for how long?

My last one I did for about 12 hours. I went home and popped 3 xrta strength Tylenol and 2 glasses of red wine true story. No breakage though, so that's a win.

lollll! ^^

I plan on trying a sew in with closure for the first time ever, so I'm a little nervous and I hope that it's not painful. I will make sure to tell her to PLEASE not install it too tight.

Yeah, it should not be too painful or tight...beware of traction alopecia.

Yes so true, my edges are so delicate and are thin. I am gonna go back to oiling them with castor oil...I think its due to high puffs i've been rocking. I left weave alone for a long time now, so i cant blame that.

Typically when I get them I do experience some discomfort the first night. But I think there's a difference between discomfort and tightness/pain. If it's extremely painful then that's a problem. Whenever I get them I do tell the stylist I do not want my braids really tight for this reasons. Usually as she's doing it, she will ask and test the tightness as a guide so I would suggest that.

My hair is still recovering from going to a girl that braided it too tight. Bish had the nerve to have a following too. I can't believe I allowed someone without a cosmetology license to jack up my hair. Now I got little sprouts of hair around my edges.

Nope.  My braider doesn't braid too tight.  And her braids last.

Well for me I typically cannot leave my installs in for a month so I don't go to a hair salon I let my mom do it..since it's free. Anyway I usually get a ton of headaches toward the end of my install before it has to come out and at the beginning its just somewhat tight but it wears off in less than a week. When it's time to go out if I'm exceeding my time I get visual headaches it's basically like staring at the sun or light for too long where you can see the little sun spots in your line of vision. When that happens I know I need to take it out right away as I have too much tension on my head..my hair grows really fast too so it usually means the extensions are dead weight on my head.


Anyhow because of that I limit the number of weeks I wear my install before I refresh it to avoid that.

The times that my mother has done my install it did hurt a bit for maybe a day. I try to do my own hair though because only I know what feels comfortable for me.
