Can you wash a sew in while it's in your head?
When wearing a sew in, you want to be sure you're still cleansing your scalp regularly. Thankfully, I found a new protective styles line called Girl + Hair and it really came through in the clutch while I wore my sew-in for 6 weeks. What I loved most about this line is that the entire collection is specifically made for protective styles. The line is sulfate, alcohol, and paraben free, plus all of the products have nozzles which make it very easy to apply directly to my scalp.
While wearing my sew-in, I washed my hair weekly and my routine consisted of the Girl + Hair Cleanser, which has a great lather and refreshing peppermint smell that immediately made my scalp feel fresh and clean.
Tip: Be sure to lift the extensions at the base and get underneath the braid. I would follow up with the Girl + Hair ACV Rinse, which was essential for weeks in which I worked out several times to remove product build-up, without stripping my hair.
