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.

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.

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)

I'm wondering how long does everyone's weaves last? And how much you paid?

My installs typically range between 100-150. As for how long it last...I normally keep them in from 9-11 weeks. Anything more than that is too long for my hair. My hair tends to grow about 1 1/2 inch during this time so I couldn't imagine keeping my install longer than 11 weeks. In addition, I have a lot of thick hair. I also wash my hair once a week which could impact how long I keep it up. It also depends on how tight they braid and sew.  I CANNOT take a tight install, for that purpose my installs tend to get a little loose around week 8. 

As for conditioning your hair...I usually use a color bottle (bottle w/ a small tip) and ALWAYS use leave in conditioner on my braids. I have seen tremendous growth and retained my length and thickness.
