My instillation was a 3 day process that took over 24 hours...625 locks later I was all done. It was well worth the aching booty..lol! I B&B and washed my hair the night I got home. In the beginning I liked to use the little barrettes when I washed my hair because I had A LOT of little babies. Now that my locks are 7 months old, I put them in about 8 big braids with rubber-bands and wash.
I wash my hair weekly religiously...my hair has always drived me crazy after a week (itching, natural oil, etc).
Below is a slide show of my instillation and hair the day after
