Is it possible to sew in weave for free? In general, whether your hair is thick, thin or fine, you can sew in your own hair weave at home.
Appearance of Your Own Weave
You should sew in a natural and flowing hair weave. Purchase threads as well as a hair weave which will match your current hair color and texture well. Just as a famous saying goes: practice makes perfect. Before you are ready to sew in your own weave, you had better practice smooth straight braids on a wig or on a friend until you can braid without lumps or bumps.
Technique -Braid Hair
You must have the skill that braid natural hair into cornrows 4 to 5 inches long, starting from the front of your head and working toward the back. Select weaving thread which matches your natural hair. Sew the weaving hair into the last part of the braids in a circular motion with a curved needle similar to a crochet hook. Use the last part of the cornrow to overlap the first part to blend the weave into your natural hair.
Maintenance A Healthy Scalp
Apply oil to dry areas to moisturize your scalp, maintaining a healthy scalp. Do not wash and condition your weave more than once a week. Select a shampoo containing a moisturizer and detangler to wash your hair, helping you avoid pulling on your hair while combing. Remove the weave and let your scalp breathe, after 3 to 4 months.
- With properly braid, you don’t require glue since it can block your hair follicles.
- Snug the braids. Do not too tight. Otherwise, it will damage scalp.
- Your scalp can comfortably carry 6 to 8 ounces of hair.
- The extension hair around the part as well as the hairline should match your own perfectly.
