autumn in Cape Town

A week ago I decided to sew a full head of weave on my hair as a protective style. The weather in Cape Town is slowly turning to autumn and that means the mornings are crisp, and evenings can be especially cool if there is a breeze. I prefer to hide my ends if not my entire head during this sort of weather. This is my first full head of weave and you know I did it myself. I'll post pictures a bit later.

It's time to deep condition, so I slathered a thick layer of conditioner on my braids and the tracks. I then proceeded to slather conditioner down the length of the hair weave focusing in on the ends. I treat my human hair weave the same way I treat the hair growing out of my scalp...like silk! Next I warm so coconut oil and apply it to my scalp and the ends of my hair weave. I use cling wrap to cover my entire head and cover that with a shower cap. I look crazy right now...

I will most likely live this conditioner and coconut oil on overnight since I'm too lazy to wash it out now. I'm guaranteed silky soft hair at the end of this process. Maybe I'll do a roller set in the end. We shall see.

Have A Good Hair Day!

  1. What are the specs of the hair? I've been thinking of getting a sow-in while here but I left the hair that I would have used at home (virgin Indian), I don't know where to buy hair, and I don't know how to go about finding someone to do it. Any help?

  2. Hi Sarah:

    The hair is plain old 'human hair' and I do my own sew-ins. I am on a strict budget, so Virgin Indian is not in the budges. I haven't been to a salon in over 5 years, and I honestly don't plan on going to one ever. The best thing to do would be to ask someone that you see with a fab weave. I find that those are few and far between here in SA. People usually ask we where I get mine done...lol

    There are a couple of hair stores in your area. I will get back to you with names and streets. Your accent might get you over charged though...lol

    Good Luck!
