Net weave not only can protect braids but also can help to minimize the tension which comes from sewing weft hair directly to braids. And, in general, a weave cap, used like a net, is studier than a net. But, do you know how to sew hair weave to a weave cap.
- After clean hair, you should use rat-tail comb to tangle free hair. Staring from the back of the head, braid small cornrows in a circular pattern until you reach the crown area. Secure hair to keep the hair out of place.
- Place the weave cap on your head to fit it. Use C-shaped needle and weave thread to sew the cap around the perimeter of your head about 1 inch away from your hair line with the large overcast stitches. Cut excess fabric from the perimeter of your head, but do not cut the fabric too close to the stitches.
- Sew the extension weft hair to the weave cap in circular rows, starting from the back and working your way toward the crown area. You can use the cornrow braids as a general guide, and then sew the weft to the cap base. Cut the weft when a circular opening of about 2 inches remains. Tie the weaving thread several times to secure stitches.
- Glue the top closure on the circular opening. Set the bond by holding a blow dryer on high heat for about 60 minutes. If necessary, you can comb and cut the weave.
- Leave some hair out in the front, and cut a “semi-circle” piece out of the front of the weave cap to pull your hair through to do a partial weave.
- Do not sew too tightly. Otherwise, the thread may cut into the underlying braids.
