- I dilute my shampoo with water that way it can easily get access to my scalp.
- I dilute my conditioner with water that way it too can easily gain access to my scalp and rinse out with ease. (I only dilute my conditioner on wash days; on co-wash days I only let water touch my scalp and i only condition the length of my weave)
- Separate my tracks so I can have better access to my braids & scalp
- Scrub and massage my scalp to clean and provide stimulation (blood flow to hair follicle)
- Don't apply shampoo to length of wave (UNLESS, there is a lot of product buildup)
- Treat the weave like it's your own natural hair. ( The weave is human hair and human hair is prone to breakage, split ends, dryness, heat damage. So if I have used a lot of heat ill add a little protein and moisturize my weave that way it will last longer.)
- Co-wash the length of my weave to keep it soft & lustrous.

Tips for Washing Your Hair While In a Sew In
Sunday is my wash day and as you know I currently have a sew in installed. Since I moisturize throughout the week I like to wash my scalp and make sure its clean. Hair can't grow when you're scalp is dirty and dirt/oil and product buildup is clogging the hair follicle.
