I have had my yarn wraps for a month now and decided to re-do my edges. That is one advantage that I have as my own stylist, the fact that I can re-do my edges at any given time. This really prevents my hair from breaking.
As you can see below, I had some build-up despite the fact that I did not use any cream-based product in my hair. This is why it is necessary to re-do the edges as the hair around the edges seem to hold onto more dirt, oil and dust.
The yarn was also very easy to take out despite the build-up. For my fine hair, I prefer to use yarn as opposed to synthetic hair, which sometimes get tangled with my fine hair. Since yarn is not hair and is thicker than the thin strands from synthetic/human hair, it is easy to take out.
Prior to taking the yarn out around my edges, I washed my hair with diluted shampoo and deep conditioned with diluted conditioner. I also moisturized with diluted aloe vera juice and sealed with coconut oil. My natural hair, after removing the yarn felt very soft and moisturized. So I am glad that I am getting the moisture into my hair.
I got bored with the previous look, so I changed things a bit by adding exclusively brown in the front. I have not styled them since they are kind of short but I am planning to crinkle them for thanksgiving.
I have a new way of moisturizing them, which is sooooooo effective. Instead of spraying product on the yarn, I pour the moisturizer in sections, concentrating on where my natural hair ends. I only use oil on the canopy (the part that is mostly exposed). I do not seal the rest with oil because I do not need to. It takes about 24 hours for the yarn to dry completely, which means that my hair stays moisturized for longer periods of time. Once I feel the yarn is completely dry, I repeat the process.
The yarn absorbs the moisture readily so my hair feels slightly damp and not wet. I also cover my hair with a silk scarf before wearing any hat when I am out.
I have to say that I really enjoy wearing yarn. They feel so light and are very easy to maintain.
