You can either braid it and run the shampoo/cond. down and in btwn. the braids OR wash like you would normally do in the shower except DON'T scrunch or tangle the hair up at all just let the water run down the hair and rub the shampoo/cond. DOWN the hair! Never scrunch it cause it ma get tangled.  Also try to run ur fingers btwn. the weave to get to ur hair.  Hope this helps

I section it in two down the middle, as if I was going to wear two pigtails, and place each section over each shoulder without braiding.  I pour the shampoo in my hand and then smooth it onto the hair in a downward motion, so that it lathers up, but NOT scrunching the hair. I do this to both "pigtails".

 

I also do the horseshoe that I have out separately as well, using the same method.

 

For the scalp, I put diluted shampoo on my fingertips and massage my scalp with the fingertips, the rinse really well. I usually do this first, so that the dirt from the scalp doesn't run into the cleaned hair.

 

Then I do the conditioner in the same steps as above...

 

Towel dry in a downward motion, making sure not to ruffle the cuticles.

 

This is the easiest, and I never have any tangles. Also use this method when washing your own hair, especially after taking down your weave.

I wash my full hair weave, braid, weft, thread... errythang ALL the time. I normally wash my hair in the shower... I think the key is rinsing well and whenever it seems like it might wanna get mildewy (sp?) thats when I will do a vinegar rinse... I use applicator bottle and squirt vinegar down into the tracks and scalp... Then continue w/normal washing procedures... And I have never had one instance of the "funky locs" View%20Post

Orangepop--you are right about the mildew smell. But i think that mainly happens when residue is left on the scalp and in the hair. I rinse all products out thoroughly. It's two things.. product left in the tracks, and the tracks not being dried thoroughly.. If you are washing in the shower use a handheld shower head, andmake sure you get ALL the product out.. I ususally hold the attatchmentto my head in several places to make sure the water gets down to the tracks..If you wash in the sink,... View%20Post

I have to wash mine down to the scalp, or I will be itching like crazy. I use regular shampoo and conditoner on the weave, and I use diluted shampoo on my scalp so it's easy to rinse out. I dry my scalp and cornrows throughly with a blow dryer, and I always wash it early in the morning, so I can be sure it's throughly dry before I go to bed. I can go longer without washing in the winter, but in the summer, forget it, I must wash every week. That's why I like braids in the summer,... View%20Post

Yes you can wash the weave like it's your own, and you should.. It's an old myth/wivestale about not washing your weave.. You have to wash your hair, weave or no weave.. I wash my hair AT least once a week either by washing it myself or going to the salon for a wash and blow dry.. The key is making sure you dry the tracks THOROUGHLY.. I never wash my hair at night so that the tracks have a chance to dry and so that I am not sleeping on wet hair.. I blow dry the hair, put on a leave-in... View%20Post

yes of course you can wash it. now alot of women on here wash their full head as far as getting their scalp and cornrows wet..however I dont like getting my scalp and braids wet because sometimes it can make your braids loose so i just wash the weave and do not fully wet my braids and scalp. Now i have some of my real hair left out in the front now I do wash that. Divasm, I saw you post that b4, about not getting the scalp and braids wet. how do you acheive that, I tried it this past weekend,... View%20Post

I was talking with a co-worker about sewn in weave and she says she doesn't wash her hair until she removes her weave. Am I wrong, but I thought you could wash your hair with the weave in just like its yours. Maybe the cheap beauty store hair doesn't stand up to washing, but the hair that you guys are talking about .........SURELY you can wash your hair. My scalp would itch itself to death....

Taking Down a Sew In
Posted: 11 May 2006 at 7:01am
Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I know the hair will shed, it's just the amount that kills me. When I take it out I want to cry because of the amount of hair in the sink! I've gone from relaxed to natural before but did individual braids and never had this problem. I kept thinking it was something I was doing wrong and once it happened to my friend, I knew we weren't washingour hairright.I've never kept my hair in sections while taking down the braids, so that's something...

I ordered from RK, and as soon as I got it, I washed it in the sink with dishwashing liquid...and I didn't get that smell. I know that smell though, I would get it a lot with bss hair. Is it from processing? I dunno, but the dishwashing liquid followed by conditioner and a little olive oil should take care of the problem. See you know the deal. That Olive Oil Replenishing Pak is the BOMB. It costs only $1.29 at Walmart or any BSS. I have about 10 paks in my bathroom now. I use it on... View%20Post
