Sew- ins are one of the many ways to make your hair appear longer and fuller, but most women tend to neglect their own hair trading style in over health. Your natural hair should be washed atleast once every week, and extensions every 7 to 14 days. Your hair extensions are not your natural hair, which means they can collect and grow bacteria on the hair shaft, like a foreign object. A filthy scalp can also affect hair loss. Scalp dirt will weaken the hair roots, dirt covering the pores in the head becomes weak and easily to fall out. While it is important to oil the scalp to prevent scalp dryness, to much oil over an extended period of time can lead to build up of residue eventually leading to your hair follicles being blocked thus leading to hair loss!
It is very important to care for your hair at all times. Sew-ins should not be a vacation away from healthy hair care practices like: washing, co-washing, scalp massages, pre poos, deep conditioning and monthly protein treatments. Washing your sew-ins wont be a walk in the park, but can be done by lifting the base of each extension and apply the water directly to the scalp and cornrow to remove excess dirt. Be careful about pulling on weaved hair as it can cause breakage. Apply shampoo first to the scalp right along the edge of the extensions and lather. Be sure to lather the scalp in a circular motion. However, do not scratch the scalp with your fingernails. Rinse after lathering to remove the shampoo. Repeat two additional times. With a wide-tooth comb, gently comb the hair downward. Apply and massage in a detangling deep conditioner.
Work the conditioner in from the scalp all the way through to the ends of the hair. To condition your real hair, separate the hair evenly, take a Q-tip covered in conditioner and apply directly to your hair underneath the extension. Rinse the deep conditioner and use the wide-tooth comb to comb extensions downward. To remove excess dirt from underneath the extensions, cover a Q-tip with apple cider vinegar and apply it directly along the lining of the extension, as well as the cornrow and scalp. Blow dry, air dry, or dry under a hooded dryer but, be careful and make sure your roots are throughly dry, to prevent matting and mildew that can lead to breakage.

Dreadlocks, also called locks, dreads, or Jata (Hindi), are matted coils of hair. Dreadlocks are usually intentionally formed; because of the variety of different hair textures, various methods are used to encourage the formation of locks such as backcombing. Additionally, leaving long hair to its own devices by not brushing or cutting the hair will encourage it to tangle together as it grows, leading to twisted, matted ropes of hair known as dreadlocks. The latter method is typically referred to as the neglect, natural, organic, or freeform method. A common misconception is that those who have dreadlocks do not wash their hair, but this is usually not the case. Many dreadlock care regimens require the wearer to wash their hair up to twice a week.
