What should you do if your hair weave is thinner? Can we thicken it up? However, how to do?
Find out the cause. The common cause of sparseness is shedding. If the hair on the track is barely there, remove a track or two of the old hair. Sew additional tracks on top of the others if your overall weave is thin and you need to beef it up with a little more hair.
Sew a few tracks on the sides from ear to ear and in the back a few inches above the last few tracks at the nape of your neck to add more hair to weave. Add a few tracks in between tracks you already have if you’re bonding your hair in with hair glue. Double up the tracks to make up for the lost hair and add a thickness.
Cut hair in long layers, for the layers can create a look of thickness especially when curled to give your style depth and shape. If you want a full rounded style, you can use long layers for straight sleek styles and shorter choppy layers.
Curl the entire hair by using a 2″ barrel curling iron in multiple directions, thickening the hair as the curls will lie on top of each other as opposed to uniformly.
Use a rat tooth comb, a paddle brush, or your fingers to pull layers apart. If you want to maintain most of your curls, you should use the comb. If you want to create wide, full waves, you should use the paddle brush. With feather technique, you can curl front, shorter layers, and comb the layers back away from your face, and push the hair forward toward your face to create overlapping feathered bangs.
Use a teasing comb or tight bristle brush to tease the crown of your weave. Then, smooth hair over the teased area by using a comb to add height to your look.
