A few months back, I embarked on a protective style challenge. I stated back then that I would be on this challenge until February sometime. I have since complete the challenge!
Recently I wore a sew in weave, with a little bit of leave out. The hair used for this protective style was First Remy, Bobbi Boss hair in a 1B. The lengths were 10 inch at the top and 12 inch at the bottom. Now, I know your wondering how much heat did I have to put on my hair to maintain my leave out... With the use of certain products, and with wrapping my hair at night, I only HAD to use heat once every 2 weeks!
The products that I used on my leave out were: Organix weightless argan oil, Carols Daughter Monoi split end repair/sealer and Carols Daughter Hair Balm.
I loved having my hair straight for a while, and loved that I didn't have to use that much heat on my hair and the weave hair. The weave hair blended perfectly with my own, and the next time I get a weave I will definitely be repurchasing this hair. Every winter, I will be putting my hair in a protective style, to retain length and minimize manipulation. I feel like my hair grew a lot while in these styles, and I was restricted with the versatility. When I took the hair out and washed my real hair, I did not see any apparent heat damage. I will be going back to my conditioning regimen, which is deep conditioning every week. I will also be doing protein treatments regularly on my hair to get it back up to par.
How do you guys feel about sew in's with leave out? How often do you use heat on your hair? What kind of hair do you use? Let me know what you think!
