On Friday I had a sew-in weave installed as a winter protective style. Honestly I have having a hard time with my hair since I started my healthy hair journey, so I really just wanted a break. Also, I will be going to NY next week, so I didnt want to worry about bringing a whole lot of products and worry about styling my hair and hoping it comes out ok.

So I wanted big curly hair and thats what I got, Im actually having a hard time getting used to all of this hair LOL. Its about 7oz of 14in curly Indian hair. And to protect my hair underneath I just spray leave in conditioner on the braids and then oil my scalp. I also plan to wash and DC weekly.

To prepare my hair for the weave, I washed with Giovanni 50:50 shampoo, then I applied Aphogee 2 Minute Keratin Reconstructor. Next I DC'd with Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment. After rinsing that out, I applied Giovanni Direct Leave In and detangled in 4 sections using my Ouidad for the 1st time. I applied EVCO to each section and put each section in a braid. I let my hair air dry.
