What is a sew-in Weft?
A sew-in weave is a type of hair extension that is sewn onto small, tightly woven braids against the scalp. The extensions can be made with 100% human hair or synthetic hair. The sew-in weave can be used to add color or change hairstyles without cutting your natural hair. Many people believe that these extensions look more natural than most other types, such as wigs or clip-on hair. In most cases, a sew-in weave can last for at least three months before it must be taken out. This type of hair extension might be a good choice for a person who is frequently around other people because the weaves tend to stay in place better than wigs or clips. This decreases the chances of a person finding herself in an embarrassing situation in the event her false hair comes out. Click here to see the superior quality synthetic weave I sale.
How is a sew-in weft installed?
Most of the time, a sew-in weave takes anywhere from two to four hours for a stylist to put it in. It typically takes lots of time to braid the existing hair against the scalp and then sew in the new hair. Before you sew hair extensions into your hair, it is best to wash your hair. Having a clean scalp is important because it can reduce or eliminate intense itching you may otherwise experience. It is important for the hair to be cleaned; if it is soiled with products such as hair spray or gel it may not be very manageable. After you wash the hair, be sure to dry it, otherwise, it may begin to smell bad after you sew hair extensions into it.
I use three techniques to sew the weft: single track sew-in, partial track, and full sew-in techniques. My client choice depends on many factors, including the type of hair, the length of their natural hair, and how long the client wants the weave to last. The materials used for sew-in are: a comb, scissors, thread, needles and extensions to make cornrow with if needed.
