I just took out my first sew in. I usually do braids and will definitely be going back to them. Someone mentioned that your scalp itches...well that's an understatement imo. It was fine while it was in but when I took it out I scratched and scratched and scratched. I felt like my scalp was swollen I scratched so much. A friend of mine had the same experience. Never again. I'll just stick to my micro twists.
