How long should you keep a sew in weave in your hair?

HOW LONG SHOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR WEAVE IN FOR?

“The recommended length of time to keep a weave in is two months," says Charlotte. "Full head weaves and tracks should be touched up every 2 to 4 weeks. You should also leave a 2 to 4 week gap in-between weaves and it’s essential to have conditioning treatments done before, during and after your weave,” she adds.

WHAT ARE THE BEST TYPES OF HAIR TO USE?

“There are a number of brands such as my own Charlotte Mensah Bespoke ones, Virgin Indian, Remy hair extensions, Brazilian and Peruvian," says Charlotte. "These are all reusable and of the highest quality. Temporary brands are not reusable and they do tend to tangle. You can purchase these from local hair shops and online stores."
