@Teethatsall how long do you keep your weave in? My hair hair has gotten thin, your hair looks so healthy.
 
I usually keep my sew-ins for minimum 3 months. My natural hair grows very fast so my braids lift within the 1st month in a half, as far as your hair being thin its a variety of ways to get some thickness to your hair within time...what type of key products do you use? ( example shampoo, conditioner, moisterizers, sheens, sprays etc)

Yea as long as you condition everytime you wash you'll be fine. Everyone has their own unique routine. I been wearing sew ins for over 2 years but I do give my hair time to rest. I got sew-ins to help grow my hair. Here's a pic of my hair growth in the last two years.

Excellent hair growth and retention, congratulations Clap
Weaves are definitely working for you, your hair growth is a great motivation for me.
Thank you Hug

I usually wear my installs for 3 months, I’ve hair that I used for over 2 years.

The quality of the hair and the status of my scalp dictates for how long I can keep the weave.

The longest I had a weave installed was 6 months.

My hair always thrives when I keep it protected under weaves… never had problems with tangling or thinning hair.

I keep my hair moisturized by using a conditioner & water spritz or S-curl no drip every other day.

Thank you ladies I appreciate your help ladies. I use S-Curl as my Moisturizer. How Long do you give your hair a break in between your weaves? Teethatsall your hair is pretty and thick. I wish I had thicker hair. I use Organic Olivé oil replenishing conditoner.
