1) How should you take care of your hair UNDERNEATH the sew-in?
I wash my hair once or a week or depending on how the hair looks i might get away with 2 weeks (I have a full head weave). I have had no breakages since having a weave - in fact my hair is starting to grow back after the years of single braids. Once my hair is dried I used a spray moisturiser.
when i take it out I cut the hair off, take off all the threads that are left, undo each braid with a wide tooth comb and as an extra precaution (and also because I read it somewhere in a magazine!!! I then put in a condition and combe out all the old hair that would have shed - I then shampoo and condition my hair before getting it weaved away again.
2) What are some good moisturizers?
I use Better Braid Spray
3) What are some good weave hair brands?
Ive just upgraded to Aphrodites salon hair because I read reviews from the knowledgeable ladies on this board
4) Has a weave ever broken your hair out before? Or did you have any problems with it at all?
I have so far not had any problems with the weaves I have had in the last 6 months - but I will say that the first I had a few years ago I was not told how to look after it so when it came to taking out I had a matted mess underneath which mean I had to cut a lot of my hair off. Hence the reason it took me years before I had another weave.
5) Does a weave make your hairline thin out?
I cant answer that question as i had a thin hairline from childhood but I will say that wearing braids has definitely damaged more of my hairline so Im hoping with the weave it will give the hairline the rest it deserves and so far it doesnt look like Ive lost any more hair but Ive definitely say that Ive gained a little length.
6) How do you take care of the weave hair?
On the straight hair I would flat iron with a thermal protector and use moisturiser but I have since found out a lot of the ladies here dont use the moisturiser. Ive now got Eurocurls in so Ive done what a couple of the girls have mentioned here (or rather the equivalent until I buy the Noodle head creme everyone seems to be raving about) - I put in a detangler whilst the hair is wet - and finger comb.
