no i kinda figured thats what she meant but i still wouldnt go a month without washing my braids and scalp a good base should be able to handle regular washes i think thats why ppl didnt agree with it.

My tips are based on the results I got which I will post pictures of below. I got sewins to help grow my hair but if that isnt your goal then you can create your own unique routine. I do give my hair a rest from time to time but because I became slightly natural in the process of my sew ins so natural hair can take extra conditioning as well. Im not going to flex to anyone i did perm my edges and once i took down most of my installs i permed my hair but you be the judge Big smile

LOL i wasnt referring to your weave mainly .I was saying mainly to wait to wash because of the braids the weave is attached to. You don't want your braids to lift too quickly if you plan on keeping your hair in long. I know mainly because of experience in keeping my sew ins for over 3 months without any re-tightening. Didnt mean to scare you! LOLBig smile

Thanks for the compliment ! Hope everyone has a new insight on my experience and maybe take into consideration that not everyone has a bad install with Kelly. I pay my money just like others and I try to keep up my hair the best as I can.

 

A Few harmless tips:

-Try not to wash your weave within the first month of the install.

-Do not use high volumizing shampoos when you do wash, and condition the hair

-Heat protectors are good when you want to keep the hair shiny and not dry and brittle.

-Ceramic/titanium irons etc are best to use when wearing straight and curling

-When you get an install tell the braider to braid medium size braids, and if you are leaving hair out make sure that you take care of it as well. I touched mine up every so often and kept it moisturized

-For those with thin hair try using a net or adding hair to the braids

-Different types of hair match the texture of yours so I found that Brazilian hair is typically for those with thicker hair, malaysian is for more finer hair and indian hair is for in between fine and thicker hair

 

Hope these tips help and feel free to ask and share as well! ThanksLOL
 
 

Cute install  Wink

 

But your tips scare me... Dead

 

Especially tip #1..

Tip # 1 scares me because if it's good quality hair it shouldn't matter if it's washed 100 times. Also, if it's a good install, it should withstand washing whether it's the first day it was installed or the twentieth. There are multiple threads on here that give great tips and info on taking care of a new install. Maybe you should read them OP.
 
I typically wear malaysian hair and if it is not washed at least once a week, it will start to get greasy and tangle at the nape.  And with kinky curly you definitely need to wash more frequently.

Agreed and those that disagreed should know the same. Its my post and just like the people that had a bad experience and posted stated theirs I did the same. Im not on here to force my opinion just voice my opinion either way its a two way street. People take offense to the simplest less offensive things lol yet I'm made out to be the bad guy cuz I had a better experience. I hope that everyone has the best experience as possible with any install ! No harm no foul!
